Post installation error "Local logical system is not defined"

Hello everyone,

I freshly installed the latest SAP NetWeaver 7.01 ABAP Trial from scratch and like to configure ALE.

I followed thew steps of

(ALE Quick Start) but cannot get through the following step on page 12:

From the R/3 Implementation Guide screen in TA SALE

choose Basis

Application Link Enabling (ALE)

Modeling and Implementing Business Processes

Maintain Distribution Model and Distribute Views

Clicking on Maintain Distribution Model or using TA BD87, I immedeately get the following error:

The initialization of the logical system has failed.

With TA BD64 the error: Local logical system is not defined arises. I also looked at


/people/vikash.krishna/blog/2006/10/15/replicating-hr-master-data-part-1 and

/people/kevin.wilson2/blog/2006/11/13/ale-scenario-development-guide describing the same actions

to find an explanation, but without success

I assume, the error does not occur because the trial version does not support it, but

because of other post installation activities that must be done.

I already created two logical systems and assigned them to newly created clients 100 and 200,

but this did not have any impact on BD87 and BD64 as i was hoping.

Does somebody know what to do here?

Thanks in advance and kind regards,

Tab Logon & Security Logon user: current user (bcuser client 001)

Not sure what you mean over here by bcuser client 001. If you have selected current user the only thing you need to specify is Client in that tab

One more thing to try if the naming standard will make a difference, can you try these steps.

In BD54 define new LS and name them like SIDCLNT100 and SIDCLNT200 ( SID being system ID)

In SM59 create the RFC's with the same name SIDCLNT100 and SIDCLNT200. In the logon & security tab enter client for the RFC, you can specify user id and password. The user should exsist in the client that you are connecting to. Or you can select Current user . Do a connection and Remote Logon test to make sure everything looks good.

In SCC4 assign LS SIDCLNT100 to 100 Sending System and assign SIDCLNT200 to 200 Receiving System.

Hope this helps.
