Accessing XI 3.0 exchangeProfile 401 Unauthorized

I am getting a "401 Unauthorized" when trying to access the exchangeProfile page to maintain XI 3.0 Profiles. I am using userid 'xisuper' and the Roles assigned are

SAP_XI_MONITOR,SAP_XI_DISPLAY_USER, SAP_XI_DEVELOPER, SAP_XI_CONTENT_ORGANIZER, SAP_XI_CONFIGURATOR, SAP_XI_ADMINISTRATOR_J2EE, SAP_XI_ADMINISTRATOR, SAP_SLD_ADMINISTRATOR, SAP_BC_AI_LANDSCAPE_DB_RFC and all the assoicated Profiles are assigned. I am in the install process and I have not installed any patches, just at the step where the installation manual says to maintain exchangeProfiles. I have also validated 'xisuper' by logging in to SAPGUI in the correct client. I have also validated that J2EE is configured to access correct client.

    Hi Dan,

    You need to add role SAP_J2EE_ADMIN into xisuper. Please let me know whether it works.

    Regards,

    Hart

    Thanks Hart - I did add the role you suggested "SAP_J2EE_ADMIN", restart the whole environment but it did not seem to make a difference. If you can think of anything other suggestions I would appreciate it.

      Hi Dan,

      Normally it is the cause. Can you check the following:

      Launch Visual Admin tool, go to server->services->security provider->Runtime tab->User Management tab->Tree (bottom) tab->SAP_J2EE_ADMIN, make sure xisuper is in that role. Then re-try it after you clear your web browser cache and cookies.

      If it does not work, I suggest that you should use your own user id, assign all sap_xi* role to it, and test it again.

      Please let me know the result.

      Hart

    Hart thanks. I did look at the Visual Admin and found that the only user with access the SAP_J2EE_ADMIN role was the J2EE_ADMIN user. I tried adding the XISUPER via the Admin Tool and got an exception. I also tried signing on using J2EE_ADMIN userid and got an HTTP 403 exception. I am installing on the Windows2000 environment and am wondering if I have some file permission problem. I also tried my own userid which has SAP_ALL and SAP_NEW profiles, with no luck. Is there a way to import userids into the J2EE engine that have matching roles in the ABAP basis engine?
