Problem with RFC connection using Redwood V7


I am at the last phase of configuring a V7 Redwood installation and hitting an issue that I am having problems resolving. The RFC connection from Redwood to the SAP system I am trying to schedule jobs on is showing as running, but I thought I would be able to see the connection either in SM04 or SMGW -> Local Connections. In addition when I submit a job ,e.g. to run a simple RSUSR000, the job shows as running in Redwood, but then after a few minutes changes to error status with a log entry of "cannot create socket hostname=null port=1529". I have tried telneting on the SAP server to localhost port 1529 and I get the RS prompt OK.

Any idea whether I should be able to see the RFC connection in the SAP instance, and if not how I can debug the connection problem?

Configuration is :-

Redwood V7.0.3 (licensed for "Connector for SAP Solutions")

Oracle XE


SAP Netweaver 2004s SP8

Sorry Guy,

forgot to mention that yes you should be able to see RFC connection in SAP for the user that you've configured CPS to connect to SAP as.
