SAP Information Steward - SAP ECC profiling failing due to time out error


Hi Experts,

We have a requiremenmt to profile the Notificatiosn data in SAP ECC. As part of this we created a view joining QMSM, QMEL and QMMA tables on which the rules are applied. The Execute in Background option in SAP Connection is set to 'Yes' (doesnot matter as this functionality is not part of SAP Information Steward 4.0.

While running the rules we are getting the below error:

RFC CallReceive error <Function Z_AW_RFC_READ_TABLE_FILE: RFC_ABAP_RUNTIME_FAILURE-(Exception_Key: TIME_OUT)- Time limit


I had a look into the SM50 and have seen that the IS job is executing in Dialog mode in spite of specifying the Execute in Background option to 'Yes'.

I then had a look into the IS Admin guide which says as given below regarding the Execute in Background option:

I showed the same to Basis guy and he is unable to understand the second statement in the screeh shot.

Please could you let me know how to setup a user for batch processing such that any job pushed from Information is executed in background mode and not in dialog mode.

Thanks in advance.
