Important Points & Resolution:  For 7.30 systems and upwards a new guide for Collaboration Room Integration with SAP NetWeaver has been developed.

Use the link:


For 7.30 & 7.40 Portals  please make sure you have configured the LSO Collaboration Rooms integration according to this guide: -> Release & Upgrade Info -> Installation & Upgrade Guides -> SAP Business Suite Applications -> SAP ERP -> SAP ERP 6.0 -> SAP ERP enhancement packages for SAP ERP 6.0 -> SAP ERP enhancement package 4 for SAP ERP 6.0 -> Installation Guide Collaboration for SAP Enterprise Learning.

Remember:  This issue usually happens when you have configured a 7.30 or above portal the way it was described in the old guide (for 7.01 portal).The guide navigation (path) link outlined above describes the proper procedure for configuring LSO with a 7.30 and above releases of the SAP NetWeaver Portal.
