Problems with SXMB_IFR, I can't start the Integration Builder

Former Member

As I run the transaction SXMB_IFR, the integration builder doesn't open in the browser. It opens an windows explorer in the C:\Documents and Settings\MyUSER\SapWorkDir where there are 2 files SAPHistoryMyUSER.ldb and .mdb

I have the SAP NW BAP Trial just installed, should I add something more ?

Does anyone could indicate me where to look (e.g. log files), as I'm quite new to SAP.

Just to let you know, my global goal is to implement an XI-CNT (to be certified) for exchanging information with a third party system that is able to do XML via HTTP, something I understood to be clearly in the field for XI, doesn't ?

Thanks in advance for your answers!

Use this


And after that add the Host file in your Desktop of the following Path


Open the hosts file with Notepad and add the Host name of the XI and IP of the Xi server.

In my view why are u going for the transaction sxmb_ifr.You directly install saplogon,and get the urls of xi servers and directly you can start.

Unable to open Integration Builder…checklist [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken]


1. Ensure that the required JDK is being used in the client system

2. Set the proxies to NONE in the Java Web Start.

3. Also check for the Host name & IP Address in the Hosts file under “C:WINDOWSsystem32driversetc hosts”
