SAP Host Agent OutsideDiscovery

Hi Guys,

We are having trouble connecting to our hostagent on the BOBJ Server (we receive an error message when we click the validate button on the the host agent setup in the landscape configuration). We have ensured that the host agent is 721 Patch 7. On examination of the log files it reports:

javax.xml.ws.WebServiceException: Method executeOutsideDiscovery is exposed as WebMethod, but there is no corresponding wsdl operation with name {urn:SAPHostControl}ExecuteOutsideDiscovery in the wsdl:portType{urn:SAPHostControl}SAPHostControlInterface

Do we need to do something special to the host agent to activate this executeOutsideDiscovery method in the wsdl?

    Hi Toby,

    The patch worked. We patched to SAPHostAgent 721 Patch 33. Now everything is working as designed.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for reporting the problem.

    Can you confirm, did you deploy the Host Agent operations to the BI server? Here's a link to the guide that documents the steps:

    https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Getting+Started+with+the+Windows+client+version#GettingStartedwiththeWindowsclientversion-DeploytheHostAgentOperationsFiles

    Please let me know. Will look forward to your reply.

    Thanks
    Toby

    Hi Toby,

    Thanks for your message. We have double checked that we have deployed the opperations.d folder correctly, and that there were no permissions issues. We attempted to reconnect to the SAPHostAgent via the tool, but this time we noticed a further line in the log:

    Error| |>>|E| |BISupportTool|13200| 17|validator | ||||||||||||||||||||||An error occurred when validating the Host Agent. This exception usually occurs if you are using an older Host Agent. Update the Host Agent to the latest patch version of 7.21. Refer to: https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=439649059#GettingStartedGuide(BIrunningonWindows)-HowtoupgradetheSAPHostAgent

    We will patch SAPHostAgent 721 Patch 7 up to latest Patch level 33, and will advise back to this Q&A.

    Thanks again,

    Steve
