Function documentationCompleting Technical System Information Manually


With the technical system editor, you can create, change, and delete information about technical systems, in the Landscape Management Database (LMDB) of SAP Solution Manager, manually.

Note Note

Do not create or edit system information, manually. Manually created information can become inconsistent or obsolete.

Register technical systems automatically with data suppliers, as described under Register Technical Systems Automatically by Data Suppliers.

Data from the System Landscape Directory (SLD) will no longer be updated by automatic synchronization if you changed it manually in the LMDB, because the rank of the LMDB is higher than that of the SLD.

Data created manually must also be updated manually.

End of the note.

  1. In the SAP Solution Manager: Configuration work center (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP), choose Managed Systems Configuration.
