The SAP Solution Manager is the central location for the management and setup of the connected managed systems.sap. To connect a double (ABAP and Java) stack system.

and the authorizations in the RFC client system can be limited by the authorization object S_ICF. The trusted RFC can be used for 1b) and 2d). The trusted RFC connection has the following security attributes: Simple navigation (via Single Sign-On) from RFC client to RFC server.SAP Solution Manager Operation Guide 1) Trusted relationships from a system. RFC connections between SAP systems can also be secured by “secure network communication” (SNC). with the authorization field RFC_EQUSER set to “Y” and the field RFC_USER empty or set to the dummy value „ (inverted comma).  The RFC server system accepts the authorization by the RFC client system. c) An SAP system accepts an SSL client certificate in an https connection. which offers services to another system (client). A user has his personal authorizations in the SAP Solution Manager system as well as in the connected managed systems. Examples: a) The login data of a display user (with limited authorization) of the transport management system (TMS) is entered in the RFC destination of the TMS. b) An SAP backend system accepts the SAP Logon Ticket of the SAP NetWeaver Portal. with the same user ID as in the source system. must have authorization for the authorization object S_RFCACL. where the login token is entered. b) The login data of a service user (with more extensive authorizations) of the central user administration (CUA) is entered in the RFC destination of the CUA. Examples: a) A Windows client accepts a Kerberos ticket of a Windows domain server. This kind of trusted relationship is usually realized by putting the login data of a service user of the server system. in the client system. Using trusted RFC you can now gain additional security: The RFC server system checks the identity of an RFC client system (authorization fields RFC_SYSID and RFC_CLIENT of the authorization object S_RFCACL). In case 2d). to restrict user access rights to RFC connections. it is also possible to restrict which users (authorization field RFC_USER) in the RFC client system can use the connection. the login data of a service user is entered in the RFC connection. but the option “same user“ is selected. with which applications (authorization field RFC_TCODE). as in a normal RFC destination. no login data is provided in the RFC destination. The users who want to use such a trusted RFC connection. and logs its user in.  Through the authorizations of the service user for the authorization object S_RFCACL. 2) Trusted relationships between systems where one system accepts the authentication of the other system. and logs on the user in the target system. In case 1b). within these services. finds the user and logs it in with user ID.

3 System and Landscape Directory (SLD). This is especially true for system maintenance. mostly sent by these systems using data suppliers. which is fulfilling the above mentioned requirements and use this for the SAP Solution Manager. data for technical systems is replicated to SMSY. on an SAP NetWeaver PI system. Note: If a local SLD was used in existing SAP Solution Manager environments before 7. In Solution Manager 7.10. which use this data include SAP Solution Manager Diagnostics.1.1.1.  18 May 2011 .0 – SLD: SAP NetWeaver 7.0 – SLD: EHP1 for SAP NetWeaver 7. This is how to set up landscape data management:  SLD The technical system data is gathered by self-registration of technical systems in the System Landscape Directory (SLD). The SLD contains information on installable software (updated via the SAP Service Marketplace) and technical system data.g. the LMDB replaces it. which consume landscape data. Patch 5 SP9 all SPs all SPs all SPs If your central SLD does not fulfill these requirements. Landscape Management Database (LMDB) and SMSY Many functions in SAP Solution Manager rely on up-to-data landscape data. the landscape needs to be taken into account. LMDB is a central. With release 7. Note: We recommend running one central SLD on an existing Java stack in the landscape.0 – SLD: EHP2 for SAP NetWeaver 7. and the Landscape Management Database (LMDB).SAP Solution Manager Operation Guide 2.1.1 – SLD: SAP NetWeaver 7. Monitoring and Alerting.2 – SLD: SAP NetWeaver 7.40 – SLD: SAP NetWeaver 7. e. LMDB shares the CIM model with the SLD. the home of Product Systems and Logical Components stays SMSY. The main landscape management building blocks are the System Landscape Directory (SLD). it is also possible to forward the landscape data to an SLD. Since landscape data is mostly gathered outside the SAP Solution Manager system.3 – SLD: not supported not supported not supported SP6. plus the automatic content synchronization mechanism. BI Monitoring and PI Monitoring. For compatibility reasons. Data can be enriched manually in the LMDB. For the usage with the Manager Landscape Management Data Base (LMDB) in the SAP Solution Manager certain minimum support packages depending on your SAP NetWeaver version for the SLD applies:         SAP NetWeaver 6. but also for various other applications.1 – SLD: EHP1 for SAP NetWeaver 7. so that all SLD data provided by the productive SLD is propagated into LMDB. LMDB becomes the home of all Technical System data. without user interaction.  LMDB The data from the SLD is synchronized into the SAP Solution Manager Landscape Management Data Base (LMDB) introduced with Solution Manager 7. built-in repository for all Solution Manager applications. Applications. SMSY Numerous other applications keep using transaction SMSY for the time being.
