With its new post-ramp-up version SP1 Add-On tool landscape verification 1.0 for SAP Solution Manager provides you with a significantly enhanced set of features:

  • There is a new start page giving a quick overview of the state of your landscape and the required activities.
  • More importantly – besides the notification and description of inconsistencies in the landscape description – now there is a wizard helping you correct these errors.

There are also several usability improvements, which allow to more easily locate information in the tool.

The New Features 

Here’s a little preview of the new features – for a more details I provided a demo (you’ll find the link at the end of this blog)


First news you’ll see when stating the tool is the overview page:

The new overview page “Home” of landscape verification 1.0 for SAP Solution Manager in SP1 – here, you’ll get an overview of the state of both the landscape check and the landscape plus additional information.


Second news is in the core of verification itself – on the error-pages you’ll also find  wizard to directly solve the problem in the landscape verification tool as long as SMSY data are concerned (infrastructure related issues such as missing data supplier connection cannot be fixed in the tool):

On the “System Landscape” and “Error” tab, in addition to the well-known error description you’ll find a direct access to the wizard, which helps you solving the issue. It is named after the proposed solution, in this case “Change Technical System Assignment”. The wizard only proposes plausible values in selections, which are also checked directly.


These, in my opinion, are very good reasons to go for the new version as soon as possible. To find out about the look and feel of these new functions, watch this system demonstration.

    Hello Wolf

    I eagerly installed the SP0 version of the Landscape Verification 1.0 for SAP Solution Manager and I wrote a blog about my thoughts on it: The specified item was not found.

    All in all a positive feedback from me but I still saw some points I would love to some improvements on:

    I had the feeling Landscape Verification was tested on a rather small environment, you can contradict me if it’s not the case. Now we have a customer with a huge ammount of SAP systems in SMSY and having to load the verification data takes time (up to 40 minutes one of the last time I ran the load).

    So I had an idea, why not make it possible to refresh the verification data of one SAP system (or a group of SAP systems) ?

    Another thing I have noticed in the community and among colleagues, once the errors or warnings are found, solving them isn’t always as easy as described.

    While the solution details is a nice feature and the overall concept of the tool is a good idea, once a SAP system is integrated into Business Processing, Projects and other functionality on SAP Solution Manager it becomes hard to solve certain issues which are flagged by the landscape verification tool.

    Additional information how to properly perform such actions would be a nice addition. How do you get a bad product assignment or a flagged component (which is not installed) fixed when the system is integrated that far into SAP Solution Manager without breaking your functionaly where it’s integrated into.

    Another idea is integration into the SAP Solution Manager workcenter. There are already features there like conflict resolution for SMSY.

    It would be better to keep related functionality together and since this tool will be mostly used by system administrators I think it would be a good idea to also have integration into the work centers.

    Kind regards
