Defining a Logical System

11 Dec 2007 4:32 am || 0


The purpose of this activity is to create a logical system for your systems. To enable communication between systems within your system landscape, you must

1. Define the systems as logical systems.

2. Assign the logical system to your client.

This enables the systems to recognize the target system as an RFC destination. If the logical system has already been created, skip this activity.

Logical systems are defined cross-client.


Carry out the following steps:

1. Access the transaction using:
Transaction Code SPRO

4. In the column Name, enter a description of the logical system.
