Solution Manager "Solutions"
I need some general guidelines about setting up Solutions inside of Solution Manager. I have gone through and created logical components for just about everything that we have installed in our landscape. At present, I created 4 "solutions":
I then tried to assign the various logical components to 1 of my solutions, and I received the following error message:
"You cannot use system XYZ twice in solution Development"
You see, I have a logical component for SAP ECC SERVER and another one for SAP ERP ENHANCEMENT PACKAGE (plus several others). I have assigned the same system to each logical component because in my mind I would think that the system would show up once inside the Solution and then it would list all of the logical components assigned to that system, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
So, how do you setup your "solutions" inside of Solution Manager? Do I need to create a separate solution for each logical component? Ultimately, I want to use this information inside the maintenance optimizer to list any Support Packs / Stacks that may be missing for a particular component.
Any help / direction would be appreciated!

in your case, it is necessary to use the product SAP ERP. The reason is that on one hand MOPZ does not work with SAP ECC and on the other hand the relation between SAP ERP and SAP ERP EhP can be calculated by MOPZ based on SAP ERP. So, I recommend to create one logical component based on the product SAP ERP and assign your systems to this logical component and use only this logical component in your solution insead of SAP ECC and SAP ERP EhP. This should be sufficient to use MOPZ to calculate the correct support packages.
