You need to login to Maintenance Planner to access system assigned to your S-user. Please ensure landscape data is uploaded to SAP support portal via LMDB of SAP Solution Manager. The system that you are converting has to be defined in OSS under your customer ID. The diagram below shows the Maintenance planner cloud service and how it integrates with Customer system.The source system data is (1) sent to SLD. (2) data from SLD is synchronized with Landscape Management Database (LMDB). (3) From LMDB the data is uploaded to customer profile in SAP support portal using Solman daily job – “landscape Fetch”. If there is issue in replicating you may be asked to apply Note 2186164 – Problem in replicating systems to Maintenance Planner
