Prerequisites

Make sure that the connectivity between the SAP R/3 system and the SAP SCM system has been successfully set up. This step should have already been completed as part of the scenario installation.

.1.1 SAP Notes Building Block Replication SCMCurrently no SAP Note is required for this building block.

.1.2 Uploading the Configuration Role UseBefore you start with the configuration according to the manual procedures described in this configuration guide, upload the configuration role and assign it to your user. SAP Best Practices provides a configuration role for each component involved in this configuration, that is, for SAP APO or SAP R/3. The configuration role is a special user menu that enables you to comfortably access all necessary transactions for the configuration from the relevant system. The following roles are available: Technical name B05_01C B05_02C Description Configuration role for Replication SCM (SAP R/3) Configuration role for Replication SCM (SAP APO)

ProcedureFor details on how to upload configuration roles to the system and how to work with them, refer to the document Essential Information.

Preliminary Steps

.2.1 SAP R/3: Preliminary Steps 2.1.1 Activating the CIF Application Log (SAP R/3) UseBy activating the CIF application log, you can analyze errors that occur during data transfer. The log will provide you with information such as who and when transferred what data from R/3 to the APO system.

Procedure1. Access the activity using one of the following navigation options: SAP R/3 Role Menu Transaction Code SAP Menu Activating the CIF Application Log (SAP R/3) CFC2 Integration with Other mySAP.com Components Advanced Planning and Optimization Basic Settings for the Data Transfer Set User Parameters

The Change View Maintenance View for CIFGPARAMS: Overview screen is displayed. 2. 3. Choose New entries from the application toolbar. In the Maintenance View for CIFGPARAMS table, make the following entries or select the given option from the list: User * 4. 5. 6. Choose Save. Enter a customizing request. Go back. RFC Mode Q (Queued RFC) Logging X (Normal) Debugging No entry (Debugging off)

To avoid any performance problems, it is recommended to set the user parameters for logging to "normal". To display a detailed error log, change the logging setting from "normal" to "detailed" for your user. Do not forget to change the settings back to "normal", after you finish.
