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”.

    Hello Mahesh,

    This is very helpful thread. I am new to MDG and out requirement is to install MDG 9.1 on S4HANA 1709 SP2. I have gone through some material and based on that MDG9.1 comes as a bundle in S4HANA 1709. So, what i understand is, i need to install S4HANA 1709 SP2 – ABAP stack only.

    Correct me if wrong and share me your opinion.

    Thank you.
