Fiori Apps Keep Calling Internal Hostname / Internal FQDN

Had this issue where certain apps calls internal hostnames or internal FQDN when clicking or spawning webdynpro URL or any calling of internally hosted attachment. To change this setting, general steps as below: Check the app is using which local Alias - is it LOCAL or S4PS or S4FIn or whatever Check in /UI2/V_ALIASMAP / /UI2/V_ALIASCAT that alis is mapped to which alias. Check in SM59 under HTTP Connections to ABAP System if let say the Alias name is LOCAL, so there should be three LOCAL_xx created, which are: LOCAL_HTTP LOCAL_HTTPS LOCAL_HTTPT SO change for each of this, to the correct FQDN or hostname Hope this helps someone. //alak

rsync - recursive and preserving permissions

Had a case where i need to sync up /hana/data dn /hana/log to a whole new disk.. i used rsync, but f-up the permission part.. so here's a note to myself rsync -rlptgoDHAX <source-dir> <target-dir> You want the -p flag: -p, --perms preserve permissions I tend to always use the -a flag, which is an aggregation of -p and several other useful ones: -a, --archive archive mode; equals -rlptgoD (no -H,-A,-X) -H, --hard-links Preserve hard links -A, --acls This option causes rsync to update the destination ACLs to be the same as the source ACLs. The option also implies --perms. The source and destination systems must have compatible ACL entries for this option to work properly. See the --fake-super option for a way to backup and restore ACLs that are not compatible. -X, --xattrs This option causes rsync to update the destination extended attributes to be the same as the source ones. For systems that suppor

User administration page in Solution Manager for Each Scenarrios and Use Cases and Its Respective rroles

User administration page in Solution Manager. Solution Manager has a lot of scenarios and use cases, and all of them require different roles/authorizations to be used. We can find the template users in this administration page, together with their use-case, so we can activate and use the correct roles for the different scenario’s: http://solman.customer.local:port/sap/bc/webdynpro/sap/wd_sise_centralusermgmt?SCENARIO=X&sap-language=EN# Below screenshot is from Solution manager 7.2 FP 09 Kudos Stijn de Regge //alak

Communication Between S/4HANA and an EDI Server Failed due to Inconsistent Time

1. Shutdown both HANA DB and S/4HANA Applications in S4H.customer.local 2. As user root, backup the /etc/ntp.conf file in S4H.customer.local 3. Run the ntpdate -u command to update the machine clock.    e.g.: ntpdate -u 4. Open the /etc/ntp.conf file and add the NTP server: Add the line below:    server  mode 5 prefer 5. Restart the NTP Daemon using the command (as user root):     systemctl restart ntpd 6. Check the clock settings 7. Check the status of the ntpd daemon     systemctl status ntpd 7. Restart both HANA DB and S/4HANA Applications in S4H.customer.local Kudos to Alvin Domanico and Dormal Benoit /alak

Restart an SAP service internally in SAP without restarting the service itself

If we restart whole instance, users get disconnected etc, so in a case, for example, we want to restart only message server, we can eithr use MMC and All Task > Restart Service for MessageServer or more simply via command: sapcontrol -nr 61 -function RestartService and to check: sapcontrol -nr 61 -function GetProcessList Kudos to Stijn De Regge and Tibor Fenyosi for the guide! :3 /alak
