Configuration Profile

Use

The SAP Internet Mail Gateway configuration profile contains the logon data of the SAP system and the call parameters of the mailing program. Programs Mlsomail and Mlunxsnd read the required information from the configuration profile in order to set up the RFC connection to the SAP system and to call up the sendmail program.

You create the configuration profile using the programm Mlsomadm. It is then stored in coded form. You also make changes to the profile (for example, the configuration of the trace) using the program Mlsomadm.

Prerequisites

You can choose the storage location and file name of the configuration profile. The path and name must be made known so that the SAP Internet Mail Gateway finds the file.

The file name is copied to the programs Mlsomadm and Mlsomail as the first call parameter. The program Mlunxsnd searches for the configuration profile. It proceeds in the following order:

Process Flow

Result

1.       Is the environment variable GWCONFIG defined?

The file specified is used as the configuration profile.

2.       Is the file Mailgw.ini in the same directory as Mlunxsnd?

Mailgw.ini is used as the configuration file.

3.       Is Mlunxsnd in the directory <path>/exe/run and the file Mailgw.ini in the directory <path>/profile?

Mailgw.ini is used as the configuration file.

It is recommended that you store the configuration profile under the name Mailgw.ini in the profile directory of the SAP System (/usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/profile/mailgw.ini). You do not then need to set the environment variable GWCONFIG.

Features

The configuration profile must contain the information that is required for the link in the case of incoming and outgoing messages.

Inbox

Field

Description

Example

Client

Client in the SAP system in which the Internet messages are received

001

User name

Name of the RFC user with which the SAP Internet Mail Gateway registers with the

SAP system.

Mailadm

Password

RFC user password

Init

Logon language

One of the logon languages used

E

System name

Logical name of the SAP system in which the Internet messages are received

C11

Load balancing

For Y, load balancing is used, for N, you must enter a specific application server

Y

Message server

(with load balancing)

Name of the message server for the relevant SAP system

If load balancing is to be used, the message server port is configured in File/etc/services (for example, with the entry sapmsc11 3601/tcp)

hp0011

Login group

(with load balancing)

Name for the login group

Public

Host name

(without load balancing)

Name of the ABAP application server with which the SAP Internet Mail Gateway registers

System number

(without load balancing)

Two-character number of the SAP system on the application server

Gateway host name

(without load balancing)

Name of the host on which the SAP gateway runs; usually the name of the ABAP application server

Gateway service

(without load balancing)

Name of the SAP Gateway service; usually in /etc/services. As a rule, you do not need to make an entry here. The system uses the default sapgwXX, where XX stands for the system number.

Use SAProuter

Use the SAProuter as the proxy if you protect access to your systems with a firewall. The SAProuter is used for Y, but not for N.

N

SAProuter string

(with SAProuter)

The SAProuter string describes the link (for example, /H/mysaprouter/S/3299) without specifying the message server, application server or gateway host.

Trace Level

Specification of the log levels:

0 for Switch off trace

1 for Errors only

2 for Errors and warnings

3 for Errors, warnings and information

1

Trace File

Path and file name of the file in which the trace entries for incoming messages are written

/tmp/tracein.txt

Outbox

Field

Description

Example

Sendmail command
