Procedure documentationAutomatic Synchronization from LMDB to SMSY


As of SAP Solution Manager 7.1 SP05, you no longer edit information about product systems, technical systems, and hosts in the Landscape Management Database (LMDB), in the SAP Solution Manager System Landscape (SMSY). (For information about the differences between LMDB and SMSY, see SAP Note 1679673Information published on SAP site.)

Some SAP Solution Manager applications still get their landscape information from SMSY, so all relevant technical system information in the LMDB is synchronized into SMSY continuously.

You can still edit product systems and technical systems in SMSY if they do not yet exist in the LMDB. The main use case for this is an upgrade from SAP Solution Manager 7.1 releases lower than SP05: Before you migrate SMSY data to the LMDB, clean-up SMSY. Technical Operations and Maintenance Transactions need a system description in the LMDB.


You have completed the following activities:

  • You have performed the basic configuration of LMDB in the SAP Solution Manager Configuration (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP).

  • You have activated and synchronized SLD and LMDB.

  • Required user in SAP Solution Manager: The SAP Solution Manager batch user (for example SOLMAN_BTC), which was created during SAP Solution Manager Configuration (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP), is used automatically.


The synchronization from the LMDB to SMSY is automatic and unidirectional. Data is written into SMSY in the following ways:

  1. Automatic synchronization of changes from SLD

    When changes are written from the SLD to the LMDB, they are written into the LMDB change log. If there were changes, the system descriptions are synchronized with SMSY, at least every 5 minutes.

  2. Automatic synchronization of manual changes made in LMDB

    When you save changes that you made in the LMDB manually, the system replicates the changes immediately to SMSY.

You can also migrate system information that you entered manually in earlier releases of the SAP Solution Manager in transaction SMSY, to the LMDB. This is a one-time activity during LMDB setup.
