      The operation of Solution Manager was drasitcally changed from SP17 to SP18 or higher.

      For example, you can use the new transaction code "SOLMAN_WORKCENTER" instead of "SOLUTION_MANAGER".

      This transaction provides almost all services of Solution Manager.

      Moreover, you don't have to access Java stack via http://<host>:5##00/smd.

      Two setup wizards and many services for SMD is integrated into the transaction code "SOLMAN_SETUP".

      You can use this transaction for the initial/basic setup for both ABAP and Java stack and managed systems settings.

      I thinks you can do the following.

      1) Go to > Diagnostics Setup > Diagnostics System > Upgrader

      2) Click the button <Upgrader Now>

      If the error message still remains, restart Java stack.

      Or check SP levels (especially LMSERVICE).

      3) Goto SOLMAN_SETUP and launch all setting wizards.

      (you can skip some steps already set)

      Best regards,
