Can not change zcsa/installed_languages RZ11 while it is dynamically changeable


The parameter zcsa/installed_languages is according to information on the RZ11 screen dynamically changeable. When I try to save language characters like DENR (German, English, Dutch an Russian) I am getting an error "Change not possible".

Only when I leave the field empty and I click on save it is accepted. I did this accidentially and now the value for zcsa/installed_languages is blank/empty with the result that my users are getting errors that the language English does'nt exist etc.

I solved this issue by correcting the parameter in the default profile in RZ10 and restarting SAP, but I was wondering if this is a known issue.

It is on SAP Netweaver 7.4 > EHP7 FOR SAP ERP 6.0.

    I think this is a bug. I found SAP Note 2185213 - Configuration of logon languages and profile parameter zcsa/installed_languages, which says this parameter became dynamic as of SAP NW 7.50 (and it's not really needed any longer), however, I checked in my NW 7.40 and the dynamic tick is checked.

    Hello Ali,

    Thank you for providing the kernel version.

    So, this is a tricky one :-).

    The SAP kernel 745 can be used with SAP NetWeaver 7.40 and 7.50.

    However, the dynamic change of the parameter "zcsa/installed_languages" must be supported not only at SAP kernel level, but also at ABAP level.

    RZ11 is telling that the parameter is dynamically switchable, at SAP kernel level...

    When you try to change the value, the SAP kernel validates the SAP_BASIS release and it returns that the change is not possible if it identifies that SAP_BASIS is not 7.50.

    It is not clear why the blank value was accepted, though.

    I could simulate this behavior at an internal test system while using the latest stack kernel (SAPEXE + SAPEXEDB 745 patch 700) and with the latest patch (DW / disp+work patch 720).

    I do not work with the component area that the parameter belongs to (BC-I18). I will discuss this thread with colleagues from that area and I will update this thread once I have any news.

    • Hello Ali,

      I got an update not long after my previous comment. But I had decided to wait for further comments, as the feedback I received was rather an initial feedback.

      Colleagues from the BC-I18 area commented that it is not possible to change the parameter dynamically (RZ11) as of SAP_BASIS 750 SP1, and they were looking into the SAP_BASIS 740 release (to verify that the change was shipped for this release too).

      They also found curious that we could change the parameter to "blank" and that it was not possible to change the parameter back from "blank" to "DE". The root cause was under discussion.

      I did not receive further comments...
