Unable to find associated SLD element... (SAP_XIIntegrationDirectory)


Hi All,

We have installed PI 7.1 SP 7 on windows platform. All Post Installation activities were completed succesfully. I am able to succesfully execute transactions: SLDCHECK, SXMB_ADM (check) etc.

All RFC connections are also configured properly. SXI_CACHE working fine.

But when I tried to create a communication channel it gives me following warning message:

" Unable to find associated SLD element for specified class (source element: SAP_XIIntegrationDirectory ".

Following are my analysis:

1. CPA cache refresh is failing ..

error: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

- <CacheRefresh>

<Info>CPA cache refresh (mode=full) executed in 1485 milliseconds.</Info>

- <Confirmation>

- <CacheRefreshError>




- <GlobalError>

<Message>Couldn't parse Configuration Data cache update XML string from Directory.</Message>

2. In SLD-> Technical Systems -> Technical system type = Process Integration

I am only able to find 5 entries instead of 6. Entry for Integration Directory on <sid:server> is missing.

But application systems are visible against all entries as suggested in blog:


Please can you suggest whether the note 764176 is applicable for us. I need to confirm this as it suggests deletion of certain components of SLD and then creating them manually.
