Adding a Dependent SAP System

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)
Before you can add dependent SAP systems, you must have added the SAP Admin module that these dependent SAP systems connect to. For more information, see Adding an SAP Admin Module System.

Use the System Landscape Editor to add dependent SAP systems that are connected to an SAP Admin module system to the system landscape. Dependent SAP systems can be CUA systems or non-CUA systems.

This topic is relevant only if you are using FlexNet Manager for SAP Applications in an on-premises implementation. For adding a dependent SAP system in a Cloud implementation, see Creating SAP Connections.

To add a dependent SAP system, you initially create an independent SAP system that you add to an SAP Admin module. When you add this system to an SAP Admin module, the system becomes a dependent SAP system.

Tip: You can also use this procedure to change an independent SAP system into a dependent SAP system.

To add a dependent SAP system to an SAP Admin module:

  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 that contains the SAP Admin module to which the system that you want to add is connected.
    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.
    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 (optional).

    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 indicates that the new system is an independent SAP system.

    This system will be changed to a dependent SAP system at a later stage when you add it to an SAP Admin module.

    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

    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.
    Repeat password

    Re-enter the password.

    Test Connection

    Click this button to test whether the connection details you entered are correct.

    First name

    The first name of the owner of the system.

    The last name of the owner of the system.

    SAP suite type Choose one of:
    • Classic Business Suite
    • S/4Hana.
      Note: Dependent SAP systems set to S/4HANA will not be imported into the SAP Admin module for SAP transport requests that run based on FlexNet Manager Suite version 2018 R2 or earlier. We recommend that you upgrade to the FlexNet Manager Suite version 2019 R1 or later if your SAP landscape does include S/4HANA dependent SAP system as this will allow you to view your complete SAP system.
    Migration status
    This control is only available when the SAP suite type is set to Classic Business Suite. You may then choose one of:
    • Not planned
    • Planned
    • In progress
    • Completed.
  6. Click Create to save the information.
  7. Open the landscape that contains the SAP Admin module to which the system that you want to add is connected. Do one of the following:
    • Open the System Landscape Editor by clicking SAP, pointing to Configuration and then selecting System Landscapes. On the SAP System Landscapes page, double-click the landscape that contains the SAP Admin module to which the system that you want to add is connected.
    • In the breadcrumbs, click System Landscape: name.
  8. Open the details page of the SAP Admin module to which the dependent SAP system is connected. To do so, on the System Landscape: name page, under SAP Systems, select the SAP Admin module and click View.
  9. On the SAP System: name page, scroll down to the Dependent SAP Systems grid.
  10. In the Dependent SAP Systems grid, click Add.
    The Select SAP Systems dialog displays.
  11. Select the system that you created in steps 1 to 6. You can also add multiple systems in one step by selecting the respective check boxes.
  12. Click OK.
The system type is changed to dependent SAP system, and the system is added to the system landscape. The SAP System: name page displays the system details as well as the Users grid. For information about the Users grid, see Displaying the SAP System Users.
