Error in Connection between BW and SEM on different instance


I have to establish connection between my BW and SEM system which are running on two different instance as in two different machines. I have successfully established a RFC Connection between the two. I want to use this RFC Connection for pulling data in the Management Cockpit. So in the Management Cockpit design I have given this RFC Connection by specifying this in the "Standard RFC Destination for BW". When I check this connection it works fine.

The RFC Connection is shown as default in the Management Cockpit frame. The problem starts when I press F4 or type any Infocube name. The system hangs and finally gives me an error message "RFC destination cannot be reached" message number UM111.

After this if I again check the connection in "Standard RFC Destination for BW" under Management Cockpit design the same message is raised.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Many Thanks,

    Hi Amit,

    Have you checked if you are using the full host name.

    Also I would check that you are logging onto the correct client for BW and using a user-id with the correct authorization.

    Just some thoughts,
