Purpose

The Purpose of this page is to illustrate with detailed step-by-step instructions and screenshots how you can setup a Trusted/Trusting Relationship between 2 SAP ABAP systems.

Overview

This page explains in detail how to create a trusted connection between 2 systems: ABC Client 100 & XYZ Client 100.

Creating the RFC destination on the ABC client 100

Logon to ABC – go to transaction SM59 and create an RFC destination:

  1. RFC Destination: XYZ_TRUST
  2. Connection Type 3: ABAP Connection
  3. Description: Trusted RFC connection for XYZ System Client 100
  4. Target host: <target hostname>
  5. System Number: Instance number of XYZ
  6. Gateway Host: Recommended to provide the gateway host
  7. Gateway Service: sapgw<nn> where <nn> is the instance number of XYZ
  8. Under the Logon & Security tab:
  9. Enter the Language
  10. Enter the client
  11. User: Specify a user with Admin access (SAP_ALL / SAP_NEW) on XYZ
  12. Password: Password for above user
  13. Trust Relationship: No
  14. Save and perform an authorization test (Ctrl + F4)

Creating the RFC destination on system XYZ client 100 system

  1. Logon to the XYZ Client 100 system – go to transaction SM59 and create an RFC destination:
  2. RFC Destination: ABC_TRUST
  3. Connection Type 3: ABAP Connection
  4. Description: Trusted RFC connection for ABC System Client 100
  5. Target host: <target hostname>
  6. System Number: Instance number of ABC
  7. Gateway Host: Recommended to provide the gateway host
  8. Gateway Service: sapgw<nn> where <nn> is the instance number of ABC
  9.  Under the Logon & Security tab:
  10. Enter the Language
  11. Enter the client
  12. User: Specify a user with Admin access (SAP_ALL / SAP_NEW) on ABC
  13. Password: Password for above user
  14. Trust Relationship: No
  15. Save and perform an authorization test (Ctrl + F4)

Maintain the trusted system details in the ABC system (transaction SMT1)

In transaction SMT1 create an entry for the trusted system by providing the RFC destination XYZ_TRUST and then Save in the subsequent screen

Edit the RFC destination XYZ_TRUST under the Logon & Security tab with the below details:

  • Language: EN
  • Client: 100
  • Check the “Current User” checkbox
  • Trust Relationship: Yes

Save and then perform an authorization test (Ctrl + F4)

Maintain the trusted system details in the XYZ system (transaction SMT1)

In transaction SMT1 create an entry for the trusted system by providing the RFC destination ABC_TRUST and then Save in the subsequent screen

Edit the RFC destination ABC_TRUST under the Logon & Security tab with the below details:

  • Language: EN
  • Client: 100
  • Check the “Current User” checkbox
  • Trust Relationship: Yes

Save and perform an authorization test (Ctrl + F4)

Authorizations required for RFC trust relationship to work

The above RFCs will work provided you have the s_rfcacl authorisation object access with the following values mentioned in the respective systems:

( > Release 7.02):

On the ABC system:

  • RFC_SYSID : XYZ
  •  RFC_CLIENT: 100
  •  RFC_USER  : ' '
  •  RFC_EQUSER: Y (for Yes)
  •  RFC_TCODE : *
  •  RFC_INFO  : #########  ( installation number of the XYZ)
  •  ACTVT     : 16

On the XYZ system:

  • RFC_SYSID : ABC
  •  RFC_CLIENT: 100
  •  RFC_USER  : ' '
  •  RFC_EQUSER: Y (for Yes)
  •  RFC_TCODE : *
  •  RFC_INFO  : #########  ( installation number of the ABC)
  •  ACTVT     : 16

The trust relationship between the ABC system and XYZ system should now be properly established
