NW CE 7.2, new track for composite app, can't create any DCs


Hello specialists

We're running a PI instance (7.1 EhP1) on host A and a separate CE instance (7.2) on host B. ESR, SR, DTR, CMS, CBS, etc. (NWDI aka usage type DI) runs (was post-installed) on host A.

We're able to create tracks on NWDI host (A) as well as via CE host (B) using the appropriate configuration wizard.

We want to develop composite applications. Thus during configuration wizard we choose template "Composite Application 7.2".

When track creation is finished we can upload the development configuration successfully in Developer Studio. The SC dependencies required for development of composite applications are there. Everything seems to be fine...


We're not able to create any DCs within this track. Regardless which DC type we try to select... it's grayed out and following message shows up:

Software component does not support this development component type. Required DCs are located in an SC that is not visible from the selected one.

I don't really understand what to do with it.

Not sure if this is of any relevance to our problem:

Folder /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in/CMSgeminiPPI exists on host A but doesn't contain any SCA files.

Folder /usr/sap/ /SYS/EPS/buildarchives does not exist on host B... and no SCA files there (to upload them via http to CMS server)

Any help to get this solved is greatly appreciated.
