Diagnostics Setup - remembers old settings



have a strange problem and it's really giving me a headache. We did set up solution manager diagnostics earlier ago and it worked fine. Recently I logged on again to the SolMan Diagnostics page and got the message that Diagnostics was not running because the WEBADMIN connection did not work.

I checked in Visual Admin (JCo RFC Provider) and it was really down. The reason was the user which was entered for the connection did not exist anymore. So I changed it to something else and it was started up fine.

But I also had to re-run a Diagnostics Setup -> Diagnostics System -> Setup Wizard due to upgrade we made.

Magically this again changed the old connection parameters back in Visual Admin's WEBADMIN connection. On the very first page of the diagnostics wizard you can maintain the connection parameters to the ABAP system and I also changed that to the new user but when the setup proceeds it always fails at the ABAP connection step saying the user ID and password is not correct (and stating the old user which really surprises me).

So it seems whatever data you gave for the very first time the wizard just can't forget it and brings them up even you already changed the connection parameters...and it also overrides the WEBADMIN connection parameters back to the obsolete parameters.

Anybody has an idea how can I overcome this issue? Is it somewhere buffered and I need to empty the buffer?
