sRFC-adapter and file adapter with error: no adapter found

Former Member

we have two scenarios here in an XI 3.0 SP12:

First scenario connects two R/3 systems via RFC adapter (outbound / inbound) for an RFC in a standard R/3 function module SUSR_ZBV_GET_REMOTE_PROFILES.

The RFC is synchronous.

Second scenario uses file adapter to send file from A to B.

When starting the RFC call from the sender system the error message in area "call adapter" for XML message in the trace is "exception while reading from SLD:Property sap_xiadapterservice.adapterType does not exist".

Message in RWB:

"Transmitting the message using connection failed, due to: XIServer:AE_DETAILS_GET_ERROR:Property sap_xiadapterservice.adapterType does not: Unable to find any Adapter Engines."

Same problem for file adapter!

Here is the message from the file adapter error log entry in SXMB_MONI:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>

- <!-- Call Adapter


- <SAP:Error xmlns:SAP="" xmlns:SOAP="" SOAP:mustUnderstand="">




<SAP:P2 />

<SAP:P3 />

<SAP:P4 />

<SAP:AdditionalText>Property sap_xiadapterservice.adapterType does not: Unable to find any Adapter Engines</SAP:AdditionalText>

<SAP:ApplicationFaultMessage namespace="" />

<SAP:Stack>Error when reading the access data (URL, user, password) for the Adapter Engine af.kx1.test038</SAP:Stack>



Looks like an identical problem for both adapter.

What we have done (checked) so far:

- SLD connection is working

- Vis.Admin.: no problems found

(SAP RFC adapter active, file adapter active)

- Component monitoring: no errors, adapters are fine

- all rfc connections checked: ok

- have checked user and pwd and replaced to be sure

- cache refresh: ok

- reimport of SWCV to IR for RFC: done, no result

Does anybody have an idea, how to get rid of that?

Best regards

Hi Dirk,

please to Runtime Workbench / Adaptermonitoring. If there are no (or only one) adapter, ur adapter meta data didn't get successfully to IB Repository. In this case reimport SAP Basis SWCV and restart J2EE stack (TA SMICM).

Hello Udo,

in Adapter monitoring all adapters are listed and per adapter (here RFC and FILE) all adapter entries from the scenarios are available (sender / receiver comm. channel entries - in green)!

Pipeline URL in SLD Bus. Syst. is fine ( and an IDOC adapter scenario is running successfully) !

I think this is a really tricky one!

Best regards
