Here, we need to assign the industry system to both Outgoing industry and Incoming industry as highlighted in yellow.

Step 22 : Run PRECHECK_UPGRADATION_REPORT

Go to SE38 and enter PRECHECK_UPGRADATION_REPORT and then execute.

After selecting all the Checks, EXECUTE. Pls note to Uncheck the “Display Results for Current Client”. If any error which pops up, we need to assign or configure accordingly in all the clients.

Step 23 : Synchronization Cockpit

Transaction : MDS_LOAD_COCKPIT

We can enter the range or the account group of customer / vendor and execute. A message will pop up in the screen and then we need to click the tab Monitor. If there are no errors, it will reflect a green signal and if there are any errors, it will reflect in RED signal and the same needs to corrected accordingly.

If the configuration is done perfectly, you will not find any errors :

If there are any errors, then the status will be RED and we need to follow the direction given (which pops up along with the error).

Now,

When we run the SI check in SE38 -> /SDF/RC_START_CHECK , we need to check whether all signals are in GREEN / YELLOW and if yes, then SI Check for BP is successfully completed.

Conclusion :

So, in order to remove those 2 errors related to Business Partner during SI check, we need to follow the above 23 steps which will help in resolving the error.
