      Hi Jitendra,

      You should find the persos in the hierarchy  sap/bc/bsp/persos/mainapp as shown in the below screen print.

      If you didn't find the path persos has not configured sucessfully or not yet configured in your system.


      Thanks and Regards,

      Girish Kumar V.

      Hi Girish:

      Thanks for replying. I had understood your step2  on finding this folder. However I don't see those folders in that path in my installation. My BASIS folks are asking me the process on where to get those folders in that path?

      Is there a link or document that guides one on how to do this? Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

      Jitendra and Girish

      We figured out the missing piece. After installing personas 3.0 SP2 we are now at a place where would like to be. Its now up to Jitendra Mehta and the Dev Team to take it to the next level
