Problem while creating system in Portal


Iam trying to create technical system in the Portal to connect to SAP R/3 system. when i try to test the system, iam always getting the following error:

Connection failed. Make sure user mapping is set correctly and all connection properties are correct.

I tried to do the user mapping from both "Personalize" link as well as from the "User Management", but no use.

What could be the possible solution for this error?

Please suggest

    How are you testing the connection, is it thru a transcation iview or are you testing it thru the connection tests available when you create a system object.

    Once you have defined all the system object properties like



    User Management: in this define the Logon Method=UIDPWD & user mapping type= admin, user

    then you can do user mapping for a particular user with that system alias.

    let me know if the problem still persists.

      Is it that you want to create a JCo or a system?

      The system which you create in portal will not affect the JCo. Kindly contact the basis team for the system details for the JCo creation.

      If you need a system defined in portal for any other purpose like iViews, follow these steps

      Go to System Administration

      2) Go to System Configuration

      3) Go to Portal Content, open that folder.

      4) Right Click on Portal Content, a Panel is displayed select "System (from Template)".

      5) That will display a new view on right side, now select "SAP system using dedicated application server" from

      the existing templates.

      6) Choose next

      7) Give the System Name and System Id (which are mandatory fields) incase you want to give any brief notes

      about the system then give them in the "Description" field.

      8) Open the Newly Created System.

      9) Now when you want to create a New System, you have to fill four Properties they are:

      "Connector" - contains basic connectivty details

      "Web Application Server" - if you wish to access BSPs and/or Web Dynpro for ABAP and

      "User Management".

      A "System Alias" has to be defined from the Display drop down menu.

      Make sure you have set end user access in the Permissions drop down menu to all users who need to access the system

      10) Select "Connector" property, now fill the required fields such as:

      a) Application Host (should be fully qualified hostname) - Give the R/3 "Application Name",

      which can be obtained from the SAP Logon Pad

      b) Logical System Name - Give the logical name as defined in the backend system

      c) SAP Client - Check the Client in the backend system and give the appropriate number (3 digits)

      d) SAP System ID(SID)* - Check the R/3 properties and give the check for System ID

      e) System Type* - Select SAP_R3 system.

      f) System Number - This is a two digit number that you can find in the SAP Logon Pad

      11) Select "Web Application Server" property , now fill the required fields like

      a) Web AS Description -> Give some Description

      b) Web AS Host Name - hostname:portnumber. Usually the portnumber would be 80xx. xx is the SID

      c) Web AS Path - usually sap/bc/bsp/sap*

      Web AS Protocol - select http

      12) Select "User Management" property, now fill the required fields like

      a) Authentication Ticket Type - Since we are not using SSO leave the field

      empty i.e. put in select mode. (Please note that longer term you will probably want to use SSO)

      b) Logon Method - Select UIDPW.

      c) User Mapping Type - Choose "admin/user".

      13) Since all the required fields are filled appropriately now create a System Alias name, this can be done by following steps:

      a) go to Display -> Select "System Aliases" give some Alias Name, let's call it "SAP_R/3"

    Check whether all the Connector Properties (Application Host, Gateway Host/Service, Logical system ...) have been filled with correct data.

    If you are using user mapping make Logon Method property in User Management = UIDPW.

    If you are getting failed status in WAS during testing, re check the WAS parameters.

    Assign the user details of ERP in User mapping fields in Personalize and try again.

    If all the filled data is correct, then it should work.
