Remote access to the NetWeaver Administrator is forbidden

Hi All,

I have implemented SAP NetWeaver Portal 7.3 EhP1. After installing I am trying to access SAP NetWeaver Administrator through URL :

http://<Portal_Host_name>:50000/nwa

but getting below mention message :::

403   Forbidden SAP NetWeaver Application Server

 

  Error: Remote access to the NetWeaver Administrator is forbidden. See SAP Note 1451753 for details.

   

I have referred the mention SAP Note 1451753, but no getting clearly where exactly icm_filter_rules.txt to be placed in the root access of the Portal 7.31 server.

Also no idea where actually the DEFAULT.PFL is located and how to make the required entries as mentioned.

1) add entry in default profile : icm/HTTP/mod_0 = PREFIX=/,FILE=$(DIR_GLOBAL)/security/data/icm_filter_rules.txt

2) add entry in icm_filter_rules.txt : if % !regimatch ...

RegIRedirectUrl ^/webdynpro/resources/sap. com/tclmitsamuimainframe~wd/(.)*$ /nwa/remote_access_error [QSA]

3) restart java stack

Regards,

Hanif

    Hi Hanif,

    The default profile for the SAP loaded in the path /usr/sap/<your SID >/SYS/profile/DEFAULT.PFL

    As my understanding what that note says is you need to edit the profile parameter in the default profile and then you need to maintain the values in the ICM_filter_rules.txt,

    For finding the ICM filter file you need to go to the path $(DIR_GLOBAL)/security/data/icm_filter_rules.txt

    Hope this helps and let me know if you have any queries.

    • Hi Rogerio Matos,

      Please follow the SAPNote 1451753, still not getting try with downloading the attached file with the note  copy the same content to the original rule file and save.

      Restart the sap and try now.

      I hope it will work fine for you also.

      Points are welcome.

      Thanks & Regards,

    Besides these suggestions, i think you should also restart Windows Services.

    Hope this helps too.

    Hi Hanif


    The correct SAP Note number is 1451753. It is available after the upgrade of  LMNWAUIFRMRK SCA. For more information, see the SP Patch Level section of this SAP note.

    Hi Hanif Shaikh,


    I was also getting the same issue with my Enterprise Portal system that when i'm trying to access the NWA it used to give the same error i.e. 403 Forbidden Error: Remote access to the NetWeaver Administrator is forbidden. See SAP Note 1451753 for details.


    So i got the easy solution on below thread can you please try the same for your issue? Because i tried this solution for my problem and it worked for me.
