    Hi Raghav,

    Nice doc.

    I'm currently configuring Technical Monitoring in SOLMAN 7.1 SP12 and reached section 2.7 Update Content. Within the logs, I can see that RFC SMPAUDWNLD is failing with error ICM_HTTP_CONNECTION_FAILED. Can you please tell me what I can do to resolve this issue? I do not have any corporate proxy and https service has been configured in SMICM as well as ssl.

    Also, this rfc is calling URL Should I add an entry in the host file of solman for

    thanks & regards,




    1. Hi Suraj,

      An entry in host file is not mandatory here. Can you please raise a message in SV-SMG-RCD if the above doesn't help?

      Also, do you see any logs in SMICM wrt the connection.

    Hi Vencatesh,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Please see below SMICM logs:

    [Thr 04] IcmGetServicePtr: <fqdn>:1443 - new serv_ref_count: 1
    [Thr 04] IcmIConnConnect: direct connect to
    [Thr 04] NiHLGetNodeAddr: found hostname '' in cache
    [Thr 04] *** WARNING => Connection request from (31/100/0) to host:, service: 1443 failed (NIEHOST_UNKNOWN)

    Any other tips? Or I'll raise a message...

    Hi Vencatesh,


    I was able to resolve the above, it was a security issue.

    But now I'm getting ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR error and I guess it's due to the certicates. Do you have some documentation on how to download these certs and import them in SOLMAN?








    1. In transaction STRUST, you have registered the following certificates for the SSL Client SSL Client (Standard) server:

  4. Former Member

    Hi Vencatesh,

    I have already done the above but still I'm getting the ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR error. Anyways I'm looking at the logs to see anything unusual.





  5. I'm getting the same ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR.

    Is there a solution available ?

    1. Hi Marian,

      I hope, you have followed all the steps as per Rapid Content Delivery documentation.

      Can you check what option was chosen for SSL certificate (SMPAUDWNLD destination > Logon & Security tab > Status of Security Protocol frame)?. Say for example, if it is "DEFAULT Client SSL standard" then the said 3 certificates in the above configuration documentation should be imported in "Client SSL standard" of STRUST.

      It should work then I believe, please do check.


      Vamsi Krishna.

  6. The setting is: DEFAULT SSL-Client(Standard) and the 3 certificates are imported in STRUST.;
    LE: just tested and it's working again; probably just a temporary inconvenience.

  7. How to compare content between new and existing version because its update can affect the MAI?Can we measure Impact beforehand?
