Function documentationInfrastructure


The Infrastructure view of the SAP Solution Manager Administration work center gives you a central overview of all SAP Solution Manager components. In contrast to the Landscape view, it is not specific to a specified managed system. For example, if you receive a notification in the Alert Inbox about an error, you can use the tools provided in the Infrastructure view to identify the problem in a subsequent SAP Solution Manager component.
