In syslog I have:

it seems the migrated database does not have the same name and schema, have you checked that?
C  Warning: Env(MSSQL_DBNAME) [ERD] <> Prof(dbs/mss/dbname) [CRD]. Profile value will be used.
C  Warning: Env(MSSQL_SCHEMA) [erd] <> Prof(dbs/mss/schema) [crd]. Profile value will be used.

 are you trying to connect to a database whose name probably doesn't exist??

On signle database instance I have three databses ERD, BWL, CRD
and on second machine (SAPGLOBALHOST) I have two instances (applications) ERD - SAP ERP and CRD - SAP CRM

ERD is working correctly.

If you have any suggestion where I can check something, this ENV settings or anything else.
the warning says that the ENV settings and Profile settings are different and is taking the values from the profile
Database "CRD", Schema "crd"

later it says that the crd schema  points somehoy to ERD data SAPSYSTEMNAME ERD ,an aborts the coonection...

then get rid of the first 2 warnings making the info on ENV and Prof being compatible...

How can I achieve this?
open the profile let say "default.pfl" and edit the parameters like


and see if you can connect to ERD now...
