we are trying configure SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio-Engine/SDM correctly.

On deploying Web Dynpros we get the error-message:

"Deyployment exception : Cannot determine sdm host(is empty). Please configure your engine/sdm correctly!"

However we configured engine/sdm. Host and port were defined in <i>preferences</i>, <i>SAP J2EE Engine</i>.

Does anyone have an idea?

Your help will be appreciated.


I have read the other threads on this topic yet.

Thank you

Hi Daniel,

As Abhijeet said check those possiblities.

Also some more things:

1. Check whether your WAS Server is running fine or not.

2. Check whether any firewall issues to access WAS serverfrom your NWDS. (this could be a reason if your WAS server and NWDS is not present on he same machine)

Let me know after checking all these possibilities.

Hi Daniel,

You will get that error if you have configured Message Server Host and Port wrongly. Try changing the Port. As Abhijit said you can find your Port in the System Administration.

1)for checking the proper host and port information,

visit link

http://<server IP>:50000/sap/monitoring/SystemInfo

here you will get proper info abt its port if this doesnt work

2)check if you have created proper entry in host file or not

for that goto run->drivers->etc->host here make entry like

IPaddress <tab separated > host name

3) if this also doesnt work then check if SDM is running or not
