Adding an Independent SAP System

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)
This topic is relevant only if you are using FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications in an on-premises implementation. Independent SAP systems are not connected to an SAP Admin module. For information on adding an independent SAP system in a Cloud implementation, see Creating SAP Connections.

To add an independent SAP system:

  1. In FlexNet Manager Suite, open the System Landscape Editor by clicking SAP, pointing to Configuration and then selecting System Landscapes.
  2. On the SAP System Landscapes page, double-click the landscape to which you want to add an independent SAP system.
    The System Landscape: name page displays.
  3. Go to the SAP Systems section and click Add.
    The Select system type dialog displays with the SAP option pre-selected.
  4. Click OK.
    The Create New System page displays with the Independent SAP system option pre-selected in the Connectivity section.
  5. Complete as many of the following field as possible with the system information that you have available.
    Required fields are highlighted in yellow.
    Field Name Description
    System ID

    The unique identifier of the SAP system to which you want to connect.

    Client ID

    The client ID of the SAP system to which you want to connect.

    Description

    The description of the SAP system to which you want to connect.

    System landscape

    The name of the system landscape to which you are adding a system. This information is non-editable.

    Parent group

    Click the ellipsis button to assign the system to a parent group.

    Independent SAP system

    This option which is selected by default (as detailed in Step 4 above) indicates that the new system is an independent SAP system.

    Server name

    The DNS name of the SAP system. This value will be used by the RFC connection. This field can also store the SAP system's IP address.

    System number

    The SAP system number. This value will be used by the RFC connection.

    User name

    The user name that is to be used when connecting to the SAP system and making RFC calls.

    Password
    The password that is to be used when connecting to the SAP system and making RFC calls.
    Important: The password should not contain any backward slashes (\). Otherwise, the connection to the SAP system cannot be established.
    Important: On some configurations, a logon error can occur when connecting an independent SAP system. The issue may affect SAP systems up to SAP Basis release 6.4, but primarily affects systems running SAP Basis 4.6. It is recommended that you test the connection using the Test connection button. If the test returns an error saying that the connection to the system was established, but that credentials were incorrect, enter the password in uppercase letters. For more information, see SAP Note 792850.
    Repeat password

    Re-enter the password.
