http request to receive a login token from BusinessObjects worked a week ago, but no longer works, but https works.

The custom application to call BusinessObjects cannot process https call to BusinessObjects, so it's just using http.  The Windows Server 2012 had some recent updates and that seems to be the point the http call stopped working. However, the https call also doesn't work on the test server, also a recent occurance, previously http call worked, but that server hasn't changed.

We are calling BusinessObjects to get the login token, using custom.jsp, The call is this:, returning a token such as [my.server]

The http call results in http error 404.

An http call to an outside link works -

So Windows Server 2012 now cannot (all of a sudden) call SAP BusinessObjects with http

I realize this is an environment issue that you won't be able to troubleshoot. Also it's Business Objects so we are pursuing assistance in other places.

But just thought I would see what anyone might say as far as how to further troubleshoot this.

We are looking for a software that will manage subscription services.  We have been using Excel, but it's taking off so we need something more Enterprise scaling.
Does anyone use anything they would recommend?  Ideally it would interface with SAP
Hi - I am setting up a SAP HANA environment based on VMware 6.5 using RHEL 7.5 VMs.

One of my VMs has a number of drives (100GB OS drive / 32GB Swap / 50GB Binaries / 32GB Shared Data / 750GB DB / 750GB Logs), 48vCPU, and 768GB RAM and resides in a number of different Datastores.

My OS and Swap files share the same disk and datastore.

When I boot my RHEL VM, it tries to create the Swap space to match the amount of RAM = 768GB which instantly fills my storage.

I want 32GB configured for Swap space.

Am I missing the obvious? Is the sudden grabbing of disk space to match the amount of RAM expected behaviour?

Any help or guidance much appreciated

I had this question after viewing Append all database values in Parameter not bringing in all data..

I have been trying to append values for site (customer site names) and it is bringing in (on estimate) the first 1000 sites in the database.  If I create an "ALL" selection and run the report it does bring in all sites.  Basically when appending I can see up to values beginning with 'H', but running "ALL" bring up to 'Z'.

It is a standard parameter

Hi Experts

Could you explain in what aspects a SAP PowerBuilder app interacts with SAP ERP (MM/ PP/ FI/ CO/ SD...)?

Is it used like ABAP to customize the SAP use?

Or PowerBuilder owned by SAP (an Sybase dev platform before) is just an aparted product.

Thanks in advance!

I need your advice please  to validate a solution for up to date  a file exchange between MarketPlace MIRAKL and SAP.
Mirakl does not give us the possibility to connect via sftp (user, mdp, port or other ).

However, If we use the CURL (client URL request library) technology to send requests and retrieve orders that are entered into our stores and repatriate them to SAP.
The connection is via https and in the script it will be used an API key that is unique and generate from our MIRAKL account. In this API key we have a user and a password, which makes the connection secure.

About security, the solution is secure (safe) or not and we advise me to implement this solution?

Dear EE,

My application is using SAP file in UTF-8 format, for this purpose my application uses a a DLL “Interface_encoding.dll” to convert file into required format.

Some how , same user generates file on same PC and get the different file formats.
1) Sometime it is generated correctly in UTF-8 format
2) Sometime fie is created in UTF-8 BOM format.

Please see that we have checked for DLL registration and it was fine all the time.

Your support is required to find out the possible root cause and resolution.
