Error during import of tables into DS4.1 from ECC


We use DS 4.1, RFC transport method to extract data from ECC. RFC destination is all setup and is working fine. A user id has been created in ECC and has all authorization assigned to it. Connection is getting established successfully between DS and ECC.

When I try to import the table, I get an error message saying...


Error: Cannot import the metadata table <name=table_name>.

RFC CallReceive error <Function /BODS/RFC_ABAP_INSTALL_AND_RUN: RFC_ABAP_MESSAGE, Changes to Repository objects are not permitted in this client) - Changes to Repository objects are not permitted in this client[SAP NWRFC 720][SAP Partner 702 ][client#][server_name][user_id][4102]>. (BODI-1112339)


We were able to import the table earlier sometime, but not now. We came to know that the ECC client was locked down.

My question is - do we need to have the ECC client open/unlocked when DS is trying to import the table for extraction? And is it advised to have the client unlocked all the time?

Or we are missing something?

Your input is much appreciated.

Thanks, Arun J
