Grey (blank) EWA reports generated for Portal systems

I am attempting to set up EWA reports for J2EE systems. At this stage despite all efforts I continue to get grey rated (blank) reports generated for our Portal systems.

As far as I can tell all required components are installed correctly (Wily, SMD server, SMD agents etc).

This problem seems to be restricted to our Portal systems as report data is being generated for our XI J2EE engines with the same SMD components installed.

CGA collection jobs are running successfully against the managed Portal systems, and I have attempted to manually generate reports via transaction DSA in the Solution Manager system, using an uploaded service data xml file generated with the SMD/services utility. This also results in a blank report.

Our systems comprise the following components:

Wily v7.1

SMD 13 on Solution Manager and managed systems

Solution Manager 4.0 SP13: (ABAP):

SAP_ABA 700 0013 SAPKA70013

Among many, many others, the following notes and documentation has been followed:

976054 Availability of EWA for Non ABAP components

1010428 End-to-End Diagnostics

762969 - Grey rating for Earywatch Report

EWA guide for NON-ABAB components

SAP Solution Manager 4.0 End-to-End Root Cause Analysis Installation Guide

762969 - Grey rating for Earywatch Report

. . .

And of course all the Wily & SMD installation guides.

Please let me know if there is any other information required. I'm posting this in the hopes that someone else has had this problem and has been able to resolve it. I have read though what seems like hundreds of threads on SMD setup problems, however not many that describe the problem I'm having exactly.

Many thanks in advace.

    Hi Stephan,

    You're on the right track! When I try manually generate reports for our XI systems via uploaded service data, I only get valid report data if I generate report with graphics - otherwise the report is blank.

    Alas with the Portal systems, I get no report data either way.

    The XML storage table does contain data (with XI & Portal systems) - so comms with the J2EE is working.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Tim,

    Have you tried to generate the report with graphic? When you jump in DSA (double click on little glasses), can you see something under node "Java Performance Check"? Under "SMD Data Retrieval"? On this last node you should see an xml file splitted in the "XML Storage Table". If the table is empty maybe you have a communication problem with the Java stack (Destination WEBADMIN).
