the connection tests section of a system landscape to BW System is failed.

When I test the sap web as connection the application return this message:

Test Detais:

The test consists of the following steps:

1. Check that the system object defines an SAP system

2. Validate the following parameters: wap.WAS.protocol; wap.WAS.hostname

3. Check the HTTP/S connection to the defined backend application


1. The system object represents an SAP system.

2. The following parameters are valid: wap.WAS.protocol (http) ; wap.WAS.hostname (sapbw:8000)

3. HTTP/S connection failed. Make sure the protocol, host name, and user mapping are correctly defined.

The configuration in the system landscape is:

Category: Sap web as connection

Was Description: BW_system

Was Hostname= sapbw:8000

Was Path = /sap/bw/bex

Was protocol = http

The test of the connector return this message

Retrieval of default alias successful

Connection successful

Please, can you help me.

Does a simple iView work against the system? If you can build iViews against it then I wouldn't worry about the connection tests....

Do you have a user mapping configured for the user running the test?

Can you call the URL directly in a browser from the EP host and login with the mapped userid/pwd?

Hi Nicholas,

Yes, the test to user mapping configured is successful.

I think the problem is my configuration of Sap web connection or a parameter in the SAP System R/3.

When I call the url http://sapbw:8000/sap/bw/Bex the browser return the correct page.

please, if you need additional information tell me.
