How to find the User who changed the connection settings

Hi Gurus,

I am basically a BW guy but i am looking at your precious Guidance in this issue.

We have a situation in our BW production system. The job loads are working fine till now but seems like someone has meddled with RFC connection with R/3 prod.

The connection between R/3 and BW is broken. I would like to know if there is any way to find the User or some Log to find who might have medelled with the RFC's .

Help is greatly appreciated.

    Hello Satish,

    Which release are you on?

    Option 1: Take a look in SM59 selecting the destination and there is a "last changed" information displayed.

    Option 2: the table for these connections are often not logged for table change logging, but if they are... then try transaction SCU3 on the backend tables (table RFCDES is a good start).

    (search for rec/client and recclient etc as search terms).

    Option 3: Why would someone change a connection? Try to analyze what happened during the time period after the change, or even immediately before the change (audit logs, system events, server statistics etc). A simple check would be via SM20 to see who started SM59 immediately prior to this. A more complex check would be analyzing the RFC profiles in ST03N.

    Option 4: On the R/3 side, you might be able to find the same auditable information as well (perhaps even the IP address of the caller?) Tip: The person might have created a dump... => transaction ST22.

    Option 5: There are some other additional logging, tracing and control possibilities at a deeper technical level, if used or active at that point in time.
