Server based SAPUILandscape.xml not working

Hi folks,

according to note 2075150 it should be possible, to have the SAPUILandscape file on a central server (setting LandscapeFileOnServer in KEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SAP\SAPLogon\Options to something like "http://server:port/config/SAPUILandscapeOnServer.xml "). Since I have a heterogeneous client landscape, I can't provide the file by means of UNC-capable file server.

However, if I do so, and start saplogon (7.40PL2), it complains about not beeing able to download the file and I also don't get a hit on my http-Server.

If I start NWBC5, I get a hit on the http server and NWBC display correct connections etc, and I'm able to launch NWBC-stuff, but sapgui fails to start (error parsing command line).

Any body els with that problem?

Edit:

Some further investigations revealed, that note 2075150 seems not to work at all. Also there seems to be a bug, as they reference '\\Servername\Saplogon\Configuration\SapLogonTree.xml', which shouldbe no longer in use (?). Also, other notes state, that this file will be generated automatically, but nothing happens here.

When I craft an own "SAPUILandscape.xml" with "Include"-Statements, as the note recommands, after I launch SAPlogon, the XML gets mangled anf I have unwanted tags, f.ex. a '</Services>'-Tag, which never was opened. Depending of NWBC or SAPlogon opening the XML, the GUID gets changed, therefore it is impossible to use some sort of version control.

I think, I have to revert to 7.30 and and keep this stuff alone...

Best regards,

Jürgen
