    Hello Balaji

    The easiest way and the best in my opinion is by loading SLD data into your Solution Manager.

    I don't recommend creating the systems manually, not even the database host etc.

    Your EP 7.0 system is connected to an SLD, either a local sld or a central sld or perhaps another SAP system's SLD.

    What in my opinion is best practice is to have the data available also in the SLD connected to your SAP Solution Manager.

    You can connect the EP 7.0 SLD to the Solution Manager SLD using a data supplier bridge (in the SLD under administration --> data supplier).

    To push the data of your EP 7.0 to the SLD again you can trigger the data transfer (lightning strike button) through the SLD Data Supplier service (you can find it in the Visual Administrator under serverX --> services --> SLD Data Supplier

    Once the details of your EP 7.0 SAP system is known in the Solution Manager SLD, you can shedule the landscape fetch background job through transaction SMSY_SETUP in your SAP Solution Manager (make sure the settings in SMSY_SETUP are set for SLD and also in the expert settings under goto --> expert settings).

    Once you have this process in place, SMSY data will be generated automatically based on the data available in your SAP Solution Manager SLD.

    Kind regards

      1 i think i have to configure this in http://<solmanhost>/sld by giving the path of EP system and EP systems user J2ee_admin

      please correct me.

      --> You have to create the data supplier bridge in your http://<ep7host>:5<instance no>00/sld under administration --> data supplier and give the path of the Sol man system with user SLDDSUSER (normally or a user with sufficient authorization). J2EE_ADMIN probably has enough rights but I wouldn't recommend placing J2EE_ADMIN in such connection as the user-id can get locked if the password is incorrect or at same point of time the password is changed and you forget to also update the data supplier user/pass.

      A data supplier bridge will send updated data to the target defined in the data supplier. So after you trigger the update of your local EP7 SLD, the data supplier comes into action and you should also see the timestamp is updated in your Sol Man SLD (under technical systems search the SID of your EP7 SAP system).

      2 can it be done in Portal's VisualAdmin? please correct me.

      do i need to delete the existing portal system ( which configured manually) from solman smsy?

      Two times yes 😊 I would recommend you cleanup your manual entries (deleting them)

      Kind regards
