Procedure documentationCreating and Editing Technical System Information


You can create and edit a technical system in Landscape Management Database (LMDB), manually. This can be necessary if there is no data supplier for a system, or if a firewall prevents the exchange of information.

For some system types, manual changes are required because, for example, information delivered by older data suppliers is no longer sufficient.

Note Note

Avoid manual creation and editing of system information, it can become inconsistent or obsolete.

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

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

Manually created data also must be updated manually.

End of the note.


See Completing Technical System Information Manually.

Incorrect information that was provided automatically must be corrected in the data supplier. To avoid inconsistencies, only correct it manually in LMDB in an emergency.

For example, deleted details of a technical system would be automatically restored by SLD synchronization. If you delete all the information for a technical system in the LMDB but not in the SLD system fragments will be restored, which cause issues.

The maintenance procedure for technical systems in the LMDB and SLD is described in SAP Note 1781779Information published on SAP site.
