SAP Sourcing cannot display this page.

Hi All,

We are trying to implement SSO between Enterprise Portal and Sourcing system.

It's a dev system and our internal/ external users are on UME. We are sharing a single Enterprise cluster between buyer/ vendor.

I get this error when I try to launch Buyer/ Vendor application from Portal.

'SAP Sourcing cannot display this page.
Click the browser back button to the previous page.'

If I copy-paste the buyer URL (http://<hostname>:<port>/sourcing/fsbuyer/portal/login?allow_redirect=true) in a new tab in the same browser session, it takes me right into Buyer application without having to provide userid/ password (implying it's using the MYSAPSSO2 cookie)

Any thoughts on why this is happening? At times, instead of this error, I get the SAP Netweaver logon prompt. But in both the cases, launching the buyer appl URL in a new tab in the same session works great. The SSO cookie is valid but I get this error or logon prompt when I try via Portal.

In the Sourcing log files, it says 'invalid session'.

Could you please point me to any help content on how the user is authenticated against the Netweaver UME and Sourcing Directory? Or any pointers in understanding this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Resolved this issue. Followed recommendations from the Sourcing Config guide for Cluster config properties.

1. No Non Alphanumeric characters for External ID

2. Use Fully qualified domain name for Hostname

3. Host Name alias should be different from Cluster Members.

4. Use Fully Qualified domain names in Registered Servers Internal Address property

5. Set this property

6. bypass_error_block = true
