A technical scenario is a group of technical systems that work together technically. Information about technical scenarios is saved in the Landscape Management Database (LMDB). Different types of technical scenarios need to be configured for different SAP Solution Manager applications.


Prerequisites for using technical scenarios in SAP Solution Manager:

  • You have set up the LMDB during SAP Solution Manager Setup (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP) under   System Preparation   Prepare Landscape Description  .

  • You have activated the SLD synchronization connection and the full, automatic synchronization is complete.

  • To create or change a technical scenario in the LMDB, you need the SAP_SYSTEM_REPOSITORY_ALL role in SAP Solution Manager.


In the SAP Solution Manager Configuration (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP), choose   Managed System Configuration   Technical Scenarios   Scenario Operations  .

Dual-Stack Technical Scenario in a Managed System Configuration

The simplest case of a technical scenario is a dual-stack that consists of an Application Server ABAP (AS ABAP), an Application Server Java (AS Java), and of the database system that is shared between AS ABAP and AS Java.

You can view technical scenarios for dual-stacks in SAP Solution Manager: Configuration (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP), under   Managed System Configuration   Technical Scenarios  . Filter for technical scenarios of type Dual Stack.

When the LMDB detects an AS ABAP for which an AS Java with the same system ID and message server already exists, the LMDB automatically identifies the dual-stack and creates a dual-stack technical scenario. You can use a technical scenario to configure the managed system for both stacks at the same time.

Create a Dual-Stack Technical Scenario

A technical scenario may not be created automatically for a dual-stack, for example if the technical systems have not been registered in the SLD for some time, or if the technical systems were registered in the SLD in the wrong sequence. The information for a dual-stack system comes from the AS ABAP; so the dual-stack is not recognized if the Java stack is registered in the SLD after the AS ABAP stack. In this case, register the AS ABAP stack in the SLD again, or wait for 24 hours, after which there should be a dual stack technical scenario for this system.

If required, you can create a dual-stack technical scenario manually:

In SAP Solution Manager Configuration (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP), choose   Managed System Configuration   Technical Scenarios   Scenario Operations   Create Scenario   and follow the guided activity.

Change a Dual-Stack Technical Scenario

To edit an existing dual-stack, start SAP Solution Manager Configuration (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP) and choose   Managed System Configuration   Technical Scenarios   Scenario Operations   Maintain Scenario  .

Assign Dual-Stack Partners in the Technical System Editor

In the technical system editor of the LMDB, you can assign one stack to another manually:

  1. Start SAP Solution Manager: Work Centers (transaction SM_WORKCENTER) and choose   Solution Manager Administration   Landscape   Technical Systems  .

    (Alternatively, you can access the technical system editor directly with transaction LMDB.)

  2. Select an AS ABAP technical system in edit mode.

  3. In the Overview screen, you can choose Assign Java Stack.

  4. Save your entries.

In the same UI, you can also unassign the AS Java stack.
