Error - Inconsistent Situation in Vendor Evaluation

I am following Vendor Eval: Config Guide Release 500. I am on SRM_Plus 5.5 (Highest Level SAPKIBK007). When I execute Vendor Evaluation from Vendor List - I am getting error "Inconsistent Situation in Vendor Evaluation". Per config guide, it tells me to activate both EBP and the web survey service using SICF. I have found EBP and it is activated. However, I can find nothing in the tree that says web survey service. Is there another name for this service?

    • Hi Sanjeev -

      I have applied SAP Note 1078545. However, I still get Error - Inconsistent Situation in Vendor Evaluation.

      When activating the new UWS_FORMSERVICE - it asked for a default user and password. As I reviewed the old UWS_FORM_SERVICE and BBP_VE_SERVICE (EBP) - neither had a default user established. I have set up a "service" user with authorization S_A.SCON authorizations. This service user was per the Config Guide. Is this the same user I should default into UWS_FORMSERVICE? And, do I need it also for BBP_VE_SERVICE?

      Here is what I know:

      I can execute the Survey and it's questionnaire using a static URL:


      (It was asking me to sign in until I added the new default user and password to UWS_FORMSERVICE).

      ERROR = Inconsistent Situation In Vendor Evaluation

      I can execute trying to start the BBP_VE_SERVICE:


      ERROR = Vendor evaluation not activated.

      Your help is been invaluable.
