Destinations of a portal
I'm quiet new with SAP and NetWeaver.
I've installed the sap netweaver sneak preview 2004,
the pdk for .net and the .net connector. I can deploy
a very simple application (like the "Hello World" example)
on my deployment server and view it in the portal.
Now I'm trying to set up a proxy to communicate with
a sap system. For this, I need to make a connection to a
sap system. In Visual studio server explorer I have to
specify a destination for my portal. I can choose a
destination from a list (pdkDummySystem, WEB_AS_DB,
WEBDynpro and WebEX). If I Choose for example PDKDummySystem,
I see the BOR and Functions folder. If I click on the BOR
folder, I get the following error:
Missing R3NAME=... or ASHOST=... in connect_param in RfcOpenEx
Can somebody tell me what's the problem? Do I have to configure
the destination or do I have to configure something in Visual
Studio or ...?
Yes, you need to configure the destination in the portal (talk to your portal system admin) to have all the connection details to an SAP system, and also you need to set user mapping for this system (alias).
Note that for runtime you can use SSO instead of user mapping (this is for when you use the portalDestination as a connection source for the proxy you create).
