In this scenario we have SAP Netweaver 7.5 XYZ ABAP system connected to ABC AS JAVA system.In ABC AS JAVA system ADS is installed(Installation can be done through SUM by downloading softwares from maintainence planner or it can also individually installed using SCA)In this environment we are using SUSE linux 12.
Considering ADS is installed on ABC AS JAVA system.It is complete process guide which involves the below steps.
1.Establishing necessary connection in ABC AS JAVA server
2.Establishing necessary connection in XYZ ABAP server
3.Testing the connection(Result)
Step 1- Login to Java server and check if ADS is installed
Go to system information column inside Java server
Once ADS presence is confirmed.Go to below steps.
Step 2-Create user with username of your choice.Here I have used ADSuser to avoid confusion in further configuration.Also make sure you are assigning the user SAP_ADSCALLER and SAP_ADSMONITOR roles
Login to JAVA server->UME->create user
Step 3:Check if both ABAP and AS JAVA server are connected to each other
Maintain the host entries in both the servers.
i.Maintain <IP address ><FQDN>Tab<short hostname> of ABAP into /etc/hosts file of JAVA server and later ping the ABAP server from JAVA server by ping <ABAP server IP>,if it replies then Java server is connected to ABAP.
- Maintain <IP address ><FQDN>Tab<short hostname> of JAVA server into /etc/hosts file of ABAP server and later ping the JAVA server from ABAP server by ping <JAVA server IP>,if it replies then ABAP server is connected to JAVA.
Step 4:Create RFC in ABAP server
Go to SM59 and create the RFC in HTTP to external server and save as below
i.In Technical settings Tab in Target host give the FQDN hostname(IP will also work but better to define Fully qualified hostname) of the Java server with service number as the port 5xx00(Check the JAVA link which you use to login to JAVA server)
ii.In Logon and security Tab give the user created in JAVA server in Step 2 and its password and save(If you are not saving password will be as initial)
Step 5-Check the connection test of the created RFC and it should pass as below
Step 6-Create user in ABAP system which should be a system user and have below roles for it.Here we have created ADS_AGENT system user with below roles
Step 7-Create RFC in JAVA server named Create the FP_ICP_DATA_<ABAP SID> rfc
Login into the JAVA server and go to SOA and Destination tab
i.In Connection and transport tab give the name of ABAP server as for
URL:http://fqdn:<portnumber of http from ABAP server> (For port number of http login to ABAP server ->smicm->check the port number of http)
SID:ABAP server SID
Client:ABAP server customer client(In which client customer login.We have to give the same)
ii.In logon data tab give user name ADS_AGENT and pwd of user created in ABAP system in Step 6
iii.Save and ping destination(You will get error while you ping destination.Ignore the error)
Ping destination will not work no worries
Step 8-Enable ADS from SLD link
Open SLD link http://host:port/sld/fun (Java server).
ADS will be disabled.We have to enable it automatically as below.
It will ask Administrator password of JAVA server.Click on Next
Select the option Use an existing remote SLD.If your JAVA server is already in use.If use have built new JAVA server select the option Select the new local SLD and give next.
Step 9-Go to the Destination Template management from SOA
i.Create the new template as below.I have used ConfigPort_Document
ii.In general tab give Destination=WSIL,URL=http://<hostname of java server>:5<portnumofjavaserver>00/inspection.wsil
iii.In security and messaging columns check as below
Test the connection
Login to the ABAP server and go to
Select the printer LP01 and give print preview.(It is the test document to check if PDF is opening)
Without checking destination service
With destination service
ADS configuration is finished and test is succssfull!!
