JCO_ERROR_COMMUNICATION: Group PUBLIC not found
While setting up the ABAP-read help values job, we came across this error message preventing of from proceeding:
Connect to message server host failed
CPIC (TCP/IP) on local host XXXXXX22211 with Unicode
ERROR Group PUBLIC not found
As I wasn't able to find any discussion on this error on the forum (this might have changed now) I broadened my search to google and found the following link:
Further done the page I found the answer I was looking for in:
JCoException: (102) RFC_ERROR_COMMUNICATION: Connect to message server host failed
Connection parameters: TYPE= ... GROUP=<group> ...
LOCATION CPIC (TCP/IP) on local host with Unicode
ERROR Group <group> not found ...
Use transaction SMLG in the specified communication system to determine the logon groups that exist there or to create the required logon group there
After connecting to my ABAP system I managed the logon group via transaction SMLG and the error was solved.
Just wanted to share with others who might experience a similiar error.
Always good to share solutions to errors. What was unexpected was the in DEV systems we don't always create logon groups, but this is an easy fix now.
