Adding RFC Destinations

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

You can manually create an RFC destination for systems that cannot use an existing RFC destination.

When you first import a system landscape, you will usually find that no RFC destinations are provided in the Maintain RFC Assignments grid. You can add the RFC destinations directly in SAP using the transaction SM59, in which case you need to enter all system details manually. Alternatively, FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications offers a shortcut to this transaction — the button Create RFC Destination is located directly above the grid. Clicking Create RFC Destination also starts SM59, but the values that were imported from FlexNet Manager Suite are used to populate some of the fields (for example, server, system number, and client), which speeds up the creation of RFC destinations.

For information on the Maintain RFC Assignments grid, see The Maintain RFC Assignments Grid.

To add an RFC destination in the SAP Admin module:

  1. Open the SAP Admin module.
  2. Open the Maintain RFC Assignments grid.
    If you just imported a system landscape from FlexNet Manager Suite, this grid will already be open. Otherwise, in the system landscape, point to Administration and click Maintain RFC Assignments.
  3. Select the system whose RFC destination you want to add, and click Create RFC Destination.
  4. In the next dialog, enter the RFC destination, and click Continue.
  5. In the RFC Destination name screen, add the user name and password and other details as required.
  6. For more information on the properties in this screen, refer to the SAP documentation.
  7. Click Save.

The changes that you made in SM59 are transferred to the SAP Admin module and the RFC destination details are updated accordingly.

Upon saving the RFC destinations, FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications automatically verifies if the RFC destinations are correct. For information about testing RFC destinations, see Testing RFC Destinations.
