Control-M for SAP
BMC Control-M for SAP
When submitting a Process Chain via Control-M for SAP, the following error occurs: Start condition should be set to 'Start using Meta Chain or API'
This error is an indication that the configuration of the Process Chain in SAP itself is not correct.
To resolve the problem, have the SAP Administrator perform the following steps on the relevant SAP system.
Run the transaction RSPC
From the left pane, double click the name of the Process Chain
Hit ctrl+f9 or the display/change button in the tool bar
Right click the "start" step on the right pane
Select the "start" step on the right pane
Select "maintain variant..."
Look under "scheduling options"
There should be two radio buttons
Select the "start using ...." button
Activate this Process Chain
Now the Process Chain can be submitted via Control-M for SAP.
NOTE: This prevents running the Proces Chain directly from SAP. This relates to how SAP implements this parameter.
