Remote Function Call (RFC)_For WWI Generation Server

Dear Experts,

I have tried creating an RFC for the WWI Generation Server and received an error message upon testing its connection by clicking the "connection test" button. I have obtained the details from my saprfc.ini file and i believe this is the instruction found in the cookbook. Can anyone please share what tcode, screen or navigation should i use or do to get the correct information of the following fields in creating RFC:

1. Program ID

2. Gateway Host

3. Gateway service

Thank you so much in advance.

Kind regards,

    Hi Mark,

    The main cause of the error is that the WWI server isn't running in the background.

    Logon to the local admin account and start the WWI server. Then logon back in your user account and check. The server will be up and running.

    If u need still further information regarding the gateway, contact your BASIS team, they will maintain the gateway and the service.

    The prog id is usually:

    Prog Id: BP_EH_WWI



    GWHOST: Enter the application server under which your generation server should be registered. The complete router string with applica-tion server must be entered, for example: GWHOST=/H/sapgate/H/hstd01.

    You determine the application server and router string by selecting your system in the SAP Logon window and then choosing Properties.

    GWSERV: Enter the name of the gateway service that is available on the GWHOST.

    You determine the gateway service by selecting your system in the SAP Logon and then choosing Properties. The name is made up of sapgw and the system number, for example: GWSERV=sapgw02 Note the upper and lower case letters.

    Award me If it works for you or let me know if u face any problem.

      Hi Dinesh..!

      Thank you for showing the path & guidance u provided. Now I installed EHS Management server & successfully running generation server as service...!

      The RFC problem i faced is due to the fact that two application servers are in one sap system. Trying to apply the sap note for that. Meanwhile installed it on the sap system server itself, instead of doing it in local pc with front end. I am able to give print from both PC...!

      Now exploring different System landscape...!

    HI Mark,

    you can find these fields in the transaction CGSADM.

    you must have proper authorization to access the same.
