SOAMANAGER - Alternative URLs for WSDLs and Endpoints in ECC

Hi All,

We are publishing enterprise services using SOAMANGER transaction in ECC system. In

our development environments we have no problem with the process.

However in our cert and production environments we have loadbalancers,

with SSL offload, and so both port and URLs for the endpoints and WSDLs

need to reflect the different port/url introduced via our loadbalancer

and SAP web-dispatchers.

We have looked at note 11325985, which provides good guidance - however

when we use the alternative host / port as described on page 2 of the

note the service cannot be saved and activated -

Steps for Reconstruction

Run Transaction SOAMANAGER in one of our ECC systems SED/SEQ/SEP

Activate a standard SAP enterprise service, i.e


In the Transport Settings tab of the Configuration of Web Service we

enter alternative URL - our load balancers URL for cert is and for prod When we save the

service it produces the following error ( when we don't specify an

alternative Access URL there is no error;

ERROR: ICF: Error when creating alias node: rc: unknown nMethod:

Alias Create; return code 15

    1-Use the Tx: SRT_TOOLS

    2-Double-click on "Display of Extended Service in Current Client Configurations"

    3-Complete the "Configuration Name" with the name of the endpoint / service

    4-Click on run

    5-Double-click on the "Configuration Name" found in the left tree

    6-You will obtain the url you are looking for without using the SOAMANAGER

    7-Enjoy 😀
