RFC_COMMUNICATE_FAILURE (to SAP)

Hi!

A customers located in US have an QV Server with an existing QvSAPConnector to the SAP

Now that installation should be moved to Sweden and I'm trying to setup the installation in Sweden. When I'm trying to connect to SAP I received the following error and I'm not shore where the "error is"

Have anyone an idea what could be wrong or what we should check?

The personal that handle the firewall etc says the IP and ports are open correct.

Hi Sunil!

I use the same Client, System Number, Username and Password as they use live in USA today. The only different on my installation is the IP to the server (extern)

Do you know if anything needs to be "changed/added" on the SAP server to allow this client to access?

Hi,

Compare the hosts files from both machines, C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts . Sometimes SAP systems are listed there.

Try also from command line "telnet machine port" to see that firewall is really opened. Black screen means OK

Than try to connect with same SAP user from other tool, and try to query same tables. It is easier to fix authorization problems from "approved" SAP tool, than start explaining what is QlikView

Dear Anders,

pls assign QTQVACCESS role to qlikview user created in SAP to extract data from SAP.

It seems you are missing Data files for the transports. Please make sure you unzip the transport contents and place Kxx file under user/sap/trans/cofiles folder (or something like it based on your SAP directories) adn Rxxx file under /user/sap/trans/data folder. Then repeat tp addtobuffer and see how it goes.

Rakesh,

After the previous error message we tried with QV SAP Connector 5.40.
we face this new error message.

I have requested my SAP team to do as you suggested. Once they are done, i will get back to you.
If you have any suggestion, i'm pleased to try.

Thanks for Quick Reply.
Regards,
Srini.

Dear Srini,

As per your posted screen shots . it clear that tranposrt is not sended properly.

pls send both transport once again. it will just overwrite the existing one .
