Gui Machine - No systems returned

I have loaded the GUI Machine onto our dev server and verified the installation.. I have also configured single sign on to our dev SAP system from the PORTAL EP5SP6 but when I try and access the SAP systems through the GUI Machine I get a login box in which I enter my username/password and click ok, I don?t get any error messages and the ?No Systems Available? message does not change

Any Ideas? do I have to have specific parameters in the systems.xml /jcodestinations.xml files to get the GUI Machine to recognise these systems?

Thanks in advance

Kev

    I've got a similar problem when I click on Datasources and enter the address for our Portal I then click the submit, a little window pops up and closes quickly, I don't get to the point of entering the login details.

    Can anyone help me find why this is ?

    Thanks,

    Milan.

      Hi,

      good news, somehow this has fixed itself and now when I click on Connect to SAP System it connects to our portal and gives me a SAP System in the drop down to connect to.

      I do this and it logs me in.

      Bad news, If I try to use the Seacrh SAP System functionality and in particular the Browse Business Objects Repository, I get the result Failed to load objects tree could not get objects list.

      Anybody any ideas how to get round this ?

      Thanks,

      Milan.

    Hi:

    1. Please check if the ep5kit.par and ep5kitservice.par file got deployed in the portal. This can be verified by following:

    Portal Admin-- > Par Upload -> In the drop down towards the end of page, look for ep5kit and ep5kitservice.

    If ep5kit is not avilable pleae deploy it manually.

    2 The portal user mapped to the SAP backend to needs to have permissions to execute RFC/BAPI

    in the SAP backend system. The user need to have profile S_RFC with authorization object S_RFC_ALL and also have access to reverent module in SAP to which the BAPI/RFC belongs.

    3. In case the portal and the GUIMachine are running on different boxes, please make an entry in the host file of the GUIMachine server that has reference to the ip address and fully qualified name of the portal server:

    Eg 10.10.10.10 abc.sap.com where 10.10.10.10 is the IP address of the portal server and abc.sap.com is the fully qualified address of the portal server.

    4. The portal user needs to be an admin.

    Regards.

      Himanshu,

      thank you for your answer...

      3. In case the portal and the GUIMachine are running on different boxes, please make an entry in the host file of the GUIMachine server that has reference to the ip address and fully qualified name of the portal server:

      Eg 10.10.10.10 abc.sap.com where 10.10.10.10 is the IP address of the portal server and abc.sap.com is the fully qualified address of the portal server.

      I am sorry to say this still does not work for me.

      If I go onto my guimachine and then try to connect to my Portal via the Datasources button and then the Login button, I get a quick pop-up saying logging information and then the popup disappears and I am not able to connect to my portal - even after doing as you say and adding the portal hostname and IP address to the hosts file on my guimachine server.

      Thanks,

      Milan.

    Make sure you only specify the hostname and port... <b>no</b> "/SAPPortal".
