I am working SAP NW 7.4 configuring ADS

It seems the communication between ABAP (serverA) and J2EE (serverB)

  • SM59--ADS

I must ignore this message of error having in account the following note:

  • Test Destination

When I try to ping desitnation: FP_ICF_DATA_<SID> I get an error: Error during ping operation: Ping not successful! Received HTTP response 404.

I also unchecked, 'Ignore SSL Server Certificates' and the error is "Error during ping operation: Unable to create URLConnection:No such view:"

However the error is the same.

    Do you have ADS on the linux server?

    It seems that some RPM packages are missing, but error in log is general.

    Follow SAP KBA below to check RPM packages in your system:
    2215355 - Complementary analysis for ADS termination

    You can find RPM package list for ADS in SAP Note below:
    SAP Note 2029940 - IFbA: Required additional RPM package for ADS on Linux

    Confirm that all RPM packages are installed in 32bit version.

    Best regards,

    Hello wilman santiago,

    1. Error in sm59 is not an issue:
    It is because ADS is called with GET method and expect is POST, but it is only for test reason.
    Please check SAP Note below:
    1177315 - ADS RFC destination test return 403 / 404 / 405 code

    2. Destination Service 404 Error is also correct:
    From SAP Note 915399 about Destination Service configuration:
    "Attention: You will have message 'Error during ping operation:Received HTTP response 404' when you push "Save and Test" button, but it is normal behavior. You can ignore this message."

    3. Report: FP_PDF_TEST_00
    It is asking for ADSUser password, this can be a problem with ADSUser settings:
    1) Password for ADSUser in RFC connection can be set to initial - Please maintain password and save.
    2) ADSUser can be locked. - Please check and unlocked user.
    3) Password for ADSUser can be incorrect. - Create new password and change on ABAP and JAVA site.

    Best regards,
