SAP ADS - Multiple ABAP systems with same SID

Former Member

I have so far been unable to find an answer to this question anywhere, so will try here. I apologise if it has already been answered in another thread.

I'm trying to come up with a solution for ADS support for some of our systems. These systems could be sandboxes, test systems and so on in different subsets, but I have a limitation initially to run only 1 JAVA stack with ADS.

Now normally this wouldn't be an issue as in most common landscapes as you don't have multiple systems with the same SID.

However what do you do when you are in a scenario where you have multiple systems with same SID.

As far as I can see it pr. design won't work with only one JAVA stack as you can't differentiate FP_ICF_DATA_<SID> enough to service more instances of the same SID.

Has anyone solved this or seen any official documentation from SAP on a scenario like this?

Thank you

Hi Jesper,

It is possible to have only one FP_ICF_DATA_<SID> with the same SID as Destination Service.
ADS will use this service to ask for PDF template and location must be accurately determined.

More functions FP_ICF_DATA_<SID> with the same SID will cause destination service exception.

I test also in NWA if system allow to create duplicate FP_ICF_DATA_<SID> function and following error occurs:
"Destination FP_ICF_DATA_<SID> of type HTTP Destination already exists. Choose another name for your destination"
