Quick Tip – Note Search help in SOLMAN_SETUP in Solution Manager 7.1 SP14/7.2

I assume all the Solution Manager administrator’s are now pretty much acquainted with Solman_setup transaction which is the main transaction for configuration or setup in Solution Manager 7.1 or 7.2


Several times during the configuration, we face error during a step or a sub-step which might be automatic as well. There is one good feature HIDDEN within this setup which is the SAP Note search.


for e.g During the Managed System Configuration setup, we get some error in the step for Check Pre-requisites as below.


Now let us say we know we are fine with pre-requisites but still the error persists so we need to search for SAP notes. In this case, click on the link Settings on the extreme right side.


Bingo. We have found a field Note Search under Hidden Column. Move it to displayed columns by selecting it and using add button. Click OK button further.


We will now notice or get a new column called as Note Search as shown below.  Now we will also see the real advantage of adding it as there is an entry ‘Search’ next to an ERROR or WARNING message.Capture.jpg

Click on the ‘Search’ and below pop will be displayed.


In the above pop up, we will see the SAP note relevant for the error and also whether they exist in our system or not. Moreover, we have the flexibility of searching further from the same pop up if want to do manual search.


Enabling this feature will take just couple of minutes but really saves time when we have huge no. of systems connected with Solution Manager and having different issues which may or may not be an issue.


Please note – This feature is only available as of Solution Manager 7.1 SP14 version in the solman_setup and also in Solution Manager 7.2
