Issue/Introduction

Summary: 

The SAP adapter can be run in debug mode from the command line.  This can offer a quick and easy way to debug SAP adapter problems without the inconvenience of running the adapter through a scheduler.

This documents how to turn on verbose logging of the adapter tools and tracing of all the calls between the adapter and SAP.  I have used the sapjob utility as an example, but this technique will work with all the tools that connect to SAP. 

Instructions:

Linux/Unix version:

A) Make a directory to store the output. (I made /tmp/SAP_OUT.)

/root>cd /tmp

/tmp>mkdir SAP_STUFF

B) Change directory to the SAP adapter directory..

cd $SAPDIR/bin ( a ls here should show the 'sapjob binary.)

C) Turn on tracing and verbose output.

export RFC_TRACE=1 (turns on rfc trace)

export RFC_TRACE_DIR=/tmp/SAP_OUT (Assigns rfc trace to a directory.)

export CAISAP0099=ON (turns on verbose logging for the sapjob binary.)

D) Run the job.

sapjob JOBNAME=ATEST START=C 2>&1 | tee /tmp/SAP_OUT/ATEST.out

Windows version:

A) Make a directory to store the output. (I made C:\temp\SAP_OUT.)

>cd C:\temp

C:\temp>mkdir SAP_OUT

B) Change directory to the SAP adapter directory..

cd C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\Unicenter JMA for SAP\bin ( a dir here should show the 'sapjob' binary.)

C) Turn on tracing and verbose output.

set RFC_TRACE=1 (turns on rfc trace)

set RFC_TRACE_DIR=/tmp/SAP_OUT (Assigns rfc trace to a directory.)

set CAISAP0099=ON (turns on verbose logging for the sapjob binary.)

D) Run the job.

 

sapjob JOBNAME=ATEST START=C > C:\temp\SAP_OUT\ATEST.out

Note:

Following the run the SAP_OUT directory,folder will have two files.  ATEST.out will be the verrbose output file and a file named something like rfc0XXXX_XXXXX.trc will be the trace file between the adapter and SAP.
