No Central Person assigned for the business partner ID XXXXXXXXXX (CRM)


We are working on CRM 7.0 system. We create org model in the CRM system and pull positions and employees from HR.

In our development system I was able to assign the employee to the position and then the user to that employee. Then I went ahead and assigned the UI business role in the enhanced object description.

Now in the production system when I try to assign the employees to the position the system lets me search the employee and finally gives a message " No central person assigned for the business partner ID XXXXXXXX". In spro under master data- BP, I checked the configuration for - Integration business partner - Employee. The group "HRALX HRAC - X - Activate HR Integration" is active and also the rest of the values as suggested in the img documentation.

Note - When the employee is pulled into the CRM system from the HR (using the Tcode - pfal), the identification tab in the BP does not contain the "Personnel No". The value here is 0. Not sure if this is the reason.

Can anyone give any inputs.
