two solution manager for 1 sap system

Currently I already have a production solution manager for my sap systems. I'm in the middle of implementing EHP4 for my ERP 6.0. The support pack for my solution manager is too low and I can upgrade because I can't get the clearance to upgrade it from my management.

In the interest of time, can I setup another solution manager for my EHP4 upgrade? Will the second solution manager conflicts with the production solution manager?

    Hi Mohammed

    If this new proposed Solution Manager is to be used productively with a system already connected to another PRD Solution Manager system it is generally not recommended.

    It is not possible to predict all potential issues as there are many different areas of Solution Manager which all differ in functionality e.g CSA, MON,SER,CM,DIA,MOPZ etc - also some areas might re-use functionality, configuration or connections in other areas

    Here are some potential things to bear in mind if you plan to do this anyway -->

    1) RFC naming conventions - with 2 Solution Manager systems connected to one system you could have RFC conflicts

    - RFCs in the target system may have to be named differently to identify each separate Solution Manager system

    - this however might affect any Solution Manager functionality that is hard coded to create or use specific RFCs

    - RFC conflicts could cause many different problems including inconsistencies or inaccurate data

    2) User conflicts - completely different users may have to be used for each Solution Manager system there could be possible

    issues with parallel or same purpose use of the same users

    3) You no longer have a central PRD Solution Manager system - your Solution Manager operations have been essentially


    In summary it might be technically possible but the level of technical work and knowledge could be considerable

    and the outcome unpredictable.

    I would either explore any workarounds to assist with EHP4 implementation or gather the documentation where

    it states a certain Solution Manager SP is required to implement EHP4 and use this to strengthen your case for

    the application of SPs

    Best wishes
