CALL_FUNCTION_REMOTE_ERROR when calling a remote function call through PI

Hello. Thanks in advance for your perspective on this.

We are developing an interface that runs in an R/3 system and is suppossed to perform a lookup in another R/3 system via a PI 7.0 system.

Here's what we are trying to do, let's call these systems "A", "B", "C" respectively.

R/3 -> PI -> R/3

The R/3 system (A) executes code, which calls this function module like this:



iv_region = lv_region

iv_matnr = ls_matnr-matnr


ev_flg_is_purchased = e_flg_is_purchased.

This code, is set via the "DESTINATION" parameter to use the RFC destination 'XI_RFCADAPTER'. This destination, points to the PI (B) system above.

Anyhow, we're getting a short dump in the R/3 (A) system, which is like this:


"JCO.Server could not find server function 'Z_CHK_MAT'"

From my analysis, I believe this is because the remote function module Z_CHK_MAT does not exist, in the PI (B) system.

Our developer, believes this should just "pass through" the PI (B) system, and call the function module in the R/3 (C) system.

Any insight on this? In this scenario, does this Function Module need to exist in the PI abap side? Can you give perspective / guidance on this?

Thanks a lot

    No need to exist in PI ABAP side.

    Just make sure that:

    1. as Michal said, you import it in Integration Repository (and use it in your configurations);

    2. the RFC Destination type that points to XI is of type T, not 3;

    3. both the RFC Destination & the Sender RFC Adapter (and only them) are using the same Program Id.

    you just need to download the RFC into XI

    and configure integration directory with this downloaded RFC

    than it will work

    that's a very simple scenario so not a lot to do
