Landscape Management Database (LMDB) is an integral component of SAP Solution Manager (SolMan) that provides access to all landscape-related information. LMDB Discovery is a faster and more comprehensive way of discovering all customer landscape components and creating placeholders for systems to be monitored on IT-Conductor.
You can click on any of the LMDB-discovered components to launch an appropriate configuration wizard that will have the fields pre-populated as much as possible. It also periodically rescans the customer landscape for the creation/synchronization of service hierarchy and dependencies.
This process is useful during the onboarding of new/existing customer systems, export of landscape inventory data, migration assessment, hint, etc.
Note: It is recommended that customers standardize the monitoring accounts and roles across the landscape so that monitoring configuration can be streamlined.
For demo purposes, we used our demo environment OZSoft (Tenant).
- 1.Setup SolMan in IT-Conductor by following the steps described in the respective user guides:
- 2.Import the transport for IT-Conductor LMDB Function Modules into SolMan to enable the extraction of LMDB tables.
- 3.Explore SAP Landscape.
- Allow a few minutes for the discovery of all SAP systems in your landscape to complete. An "SAP Landscape" container should show on the top level of the service grid.

- Open the Object Menu of any of the discovered systems and click Configure SAP System.

Note: For systems that are already monitored by IT-Conductor, the Monitoring icon shows under the grid of that application. This is automatically detected and linked to the SAP Landscape by IT-Conductor discovery rule.
- The report of the entire landscape is available at the top of the SAP Landscape and it shows details like the System host, DB component, CPU and Memory capacity, etc.
