Procedure documentationChecking Completeness of Technical System Information


After setting up the Landscape Management Database (LMDB), check whether the automatically provided data is sufficient for the SAP Solution Manager applications.

Automatic data suppliers may not be able to deliver all required information, such as installed products, diagnostics-relevant product instances, or ABAP SAP Central Services (ASCS). Product system must be defined manually, based on technical system information, to enable maintenance transactions.


The following activities have been completed:

  • You have set up the LMDB. For more information, see Setting Up the LMDB Infrastructure.

  • You have set up the automatic registration of technical systems in your landscape, by data suppliers, to the System Landscape Directory (SLD). For more information, see Registering Technical Systems Automatically by Data Suppliers.

  • You can check this in the editor for technical systems in transaction LMDB. On the overview screen of a technical system, choose the More link under Last Change by Data Supplier for detailed status information. Here, you can see if the required data suppliers are working. To check the data supplier status of several systems, start transaction LMDB and choose Landscape Reporting. The report SAP: Technical Systems – Data Supplier Completeness lists the status of all selected technical systems. For more information, see SAP Note 1842956Information published on SAP site and 1869701Information published on SAP site.


To check a technical system, proceed as follows:

  1. Start SAP Solution Manager: Work Centers (transaction SM_WORKCENTER) and choose Start of the navigation path SAP Solution Manager: Configuration Next navigation step Managed Systems Configuration Next navigation step Technical Systems End of the navigation path.

  2. Traffic lights indicate which technical systems are configured.

    Select a technical system and choose Configure System.

  3. In the Select Product step, the tool checks the assignment to a product system, to diagnostics, and to logical components. If there are errors in the log, follow the advice in the messages.

    For more information, see help text on the UI.

  4. Go to the Check Prerequisites step, and check the messages from the log. Choose Refresh, to update the list. The checks performed here are prerequisites for SAP Solution Manager diagnostics. You can also view the check results in the editor for technical systems, under Technical Checks.

    If there are error messages, follow the advice in the Details column.

  5. Complete the other steps of the guided procedure.


You can now use the SAP Solution Manager applications for the technical systems and product systems, for example in upgrade processes with the Maintenance Optimizer.
