How to add similar systems in SMSY: BI Portal and NW Portal?

Hi All

I am trying to add our BI Portal in transaction SMSY and assign it in our Solution Landscape, however I am having a few issues. Basically we also have a NW Portal 7 in out landscape aswell, and I cannot seem to add 2 Netweaver Portals. So here is where I am stuck:

Firstly the BI Portal (BBP) does appear in the Systems section in SMSY and I have configured the SLD Settings in the Visual Administrator. In Systems the BI Portal is listed as EP Core, Enterprise Portal, Search and Classif. (TREX), so when I go into: SYSTEM GROUPS AND LOGICAL COMPONENTS > SAP NETWEAVER > Enterprise Portal, I already have one logical component set to SAP NETWEAVER PORTAL SERVER (the NW Portal 7 (EPP)).

So , what I want to do is add another portal component (the BI Portal) and assign the various Dev, QA and PRD Systems and finally include it in the Solution Landscapes.

Does this make any sense to anyone and if it does can you let me know if I am doing this correctly or have I missed something vital.

Thanks in advance


PS: Will always award point for helpfull answers.

Hi Phil,

The Logical Component "SAP Netweaver Portal Server" is a supplied reference and should not be used.

You should create your own logical component based on a copy, typically identifying it in the customer name space by prefixing a Z_ to the logocal component name, into which you would populate the server/client info for the vaious system types.

Because the logical component "SAP Netweaver Portal Server" already exists, you cannot create it again.

This is why you are getting this error.
