Restart RFC Receiver Adapter Channel in XI 3.0

Hi all,

I have a problem when the R/3 Backend receiver of the RFC call through XI 3.0 shutdown the weekend.

When XI restarts but the R/3 is not up, the RFC adapter (receiver communication Channel of R/3 backend) fails. In the Adapter monitor I can see the error:

"Can't connect to gateway".

The only way I know to solve this problem is going to the Integration Directory and Inactivate the communication channel, save changes and activate change list. Then re-activate the channel, save changes and activate change list.

At this moment, the RFC Adapter of the R/3 receiver registers on the gateway and is visible in SMGW transaction.

Is there any other way to restart the RFC adapter channel of one backend (or all at the same time)?

Thank you

Best regards
