SAP Basis (Daily)

SAP IDES – the "Internet Demonstration and Evaluation System" in the R/3 System, represents a model company. It consists of an international group with subsidiaries in several countries. IDES contains application data for various business scenarios that can be run in the SAP System. The business processes in the IDES system are designed to reflect real-life business requirements, and have access to many realistic characteristics. IDES uses easy-to-follow business scenarios to show you the comprehensive functions of the R/3 System. The focal point of IDES, however, is not the functionality itself, but  the business processes and their integration.

you can stop the saprouter process (saprouter -s) and restart it
temporarily using the following options:

saprouter -r -V 2 -K "p:CN=depix, OU=0000345622, OU=SAProuter, O=SAP, C=DE"

Try to test the RFC connection to SAPOSS (SM59 -> R/3 Connections ->
SAPOSS) and send us the following information, in order for us to
troubleshoot the connection problem:

o Output of the command 'sapgenpse'
o Output of the command 'sapgenpse get_my_name -n all'
o Output of the command 'sapgenpse seclogin -l'
o Files dev_rout (after the test access to SAPOSS) and saprouttab
o Technical settings in Tcd OSS1 (Parameter -> Techn. Settings)


- On your SAProuter, delete your existing PSE file and old certificate
file (local.pse, cred_v2)
- Go to the
- Click on "Apply Now!"
- Follow the steps detailed in the following documentation

1. You need to remove the old generated files(certreq, cred_v2, local.pse, srcert) from previous certificate request. To do this you can either rename these files or create a new folder and move these files into it.

2. Login to and click the “Apply now” button. From the list of SAProuters registered to your installation, choose the relevant “Distinguished Name”.

3. Generate the certificate Request. To do this go to your SAProuter server and run this command on the saprouter directory.

sapgenpse get_pse -v -r certreq -p local.pse “
Example:  sapgenpse get_pse -v -r certreq -p local.pse “CN=example, OU=0000123456, OU=SAProuter, O=SAP, C=DE”

You will be asked twice for a PIN here. Please choose a PIN and document it, you have to enter it identically both times. Then you will have to enter the same PIN every time you want to use this PSE.

4. Display the output file “certreq” and with copy&paste (including the BEGIN and END statement) insert the certificate request into the text area of the same form on the SAP Service Marketplace from which you copied the Distinguished Name.

5. In response you will receive the certificate signed by the CA in the Service Marketplace. Copy&paste the text to a new local file named “srcert”, which must be created in the same directory as the sapgenpse executable.

6. With this in turn you can install the certificate in your saprouter by calling: sapgenpse import_own_cert -c srcert -p local.pse

7. Now you will have to create the credentials for the SAProuter with the same program (if you omit -O , the credentials are created for the logged in user account).
sapgenpse seclogin -p local.pse -O
Note: The account of the service user should always be entered in full

8. This will create a file called “cred_v2″ in the same directory as “local.pse”

9. To check if the certificate has been imported successfully, run the following command: sapgenpse get_my_name -v -n Issuer
The name of the Issuer should be: CN=SAProuter CA, OU=SAProuter, O=SAP, C=DE
