UME data source change to r/3 data source fails

Hi Everyone,

I am using portal version Ep 6.0 sp2 patch 4 hot fix 6. I am changing the UME datasource from database to r/3 which is a 4.7 SR1.

I have done the following :

I went to system adminstration->system configuration-> UM Configuration

on the datasource config tab i changed to Read only SAP R/3 System + Database from database only and also made modifcation to sap R/3 System tab. I have mentioned client number,system number , lanaguage ,application host,user and password. I have not maintained

message server and group since we dont have load balancing. I have click the test button there and it works.

When i stop the j2ee server and try to log back in with user id in the backend system it says ABAP data source not initialized. Can anyone tell me what's wrong. Is there something i missing. I appreciate your help.

Go to UM configuration and maintain the host name of your back-end R3 system in the field Message server

-> save -> re-start the portal and try again.

Enter the SID of your back-end SAP system in the field Group.
