Remote Login Using SM51 Fails

Former Member

Hi All,

We had a cluster, 4 physical servers / 14 SAP Instances / HP-UX - Oracle 10G / 46C -> Upgrading to ECC 6 EHP 3.

Basically we have a general RFC problem in the system. You can reproduce it simply in transaction sm51: In most of the instances whenever you try to change to an instance that has the same instance number than the one you are logged on at this moment, you will come back to this instance, e.g.:

you are logged on at host1_SID_01, start sm51 and try to change to the instances:


host3_SID_01 or


(or you try to display the system log or other). You will see (System - Status) that you don't change to these instances but will stay on host1_SID_01.

We found the SAP Note 662895 - Remote login using SM51 Fails. In this note they refer to the error: "Transaction termination 14 025".

We look at the SM21 it reports the following error: *Transaction termination 00 152 ( ) *

I would appreciate some tips about this problem.

Best Regards,

Erick ILarraza

Did you check RFC destinations in SM59:

Internal Connections


Technical Settings

Target System Settings

Hi Bo,

Yes, we checked the SM59.

For example with SM51 from host2_SID_04 to host4_SID_04 you can't remote login.

But from host2_SID_04 executing SM59 -> Internal connections -> double click on the host4_SID_04 -> Test connection.

Connection test host4_SID_04

Connection type: Internal connection

Logon: 11 msec

0 KB: 0 msec

10 KB: 1 msec

20 KB: 1 msec

30 KB: 1 msec

So, it apparently works fine!

Hi Martin,

Thanks a lot for your reply.

Yes, the parameter is set.


Short description(Engl) missing

Appl. area General system

ParameterTyp Host name

Changes allowed Change permitted

Valid for oper. system All operating systems

DynamicallySwitchable (Not Checked)

Same on all servers (Not Checked)

Dflt value host1

ProfileVal host1

Current value host1

Where host1 is the host where you did login. It don't care about the SAP instance:

host1_SID_01, host1_SID_02, host1_SID_03, host1_SID_04. All this give the value host1.
