Update of the SAP Support Backbone - Customer action required!

SAP's Support Backbone Switch-over entered its final phase on 8 January 2020. If you have not yet done so, connect to the new data exchange infrastructure between SAP and customer systems by following our Support Backbone Update Checklists (for SAP Solution Manager systems) and Guide (for non SAP Solution Manager systems).

In particular, SAP will commence closing its remaining proprietary RFC communication channel for automated data exchange between customer systems and SAP's Support Backbone (“SAPOSS”) as of July 2020. Find more details in KBA 2923799.

You can find the latest information at:

  • KBA 2923799 - Final Shutdown of RFC Connections From Customer Systems to SAP
  • KBA 2874259 - First Aid Kit for Problems Related to SAP's Support Backbone Switch-Over Starting on 8 January 2020
  • KBA 2880840 - Known issues in SAP Solution Manager 7.2 after the change in Support Backbone starting January 2020
