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?


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,
