LMDB Discovery

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 LMDB-discovered components to launch a configuration wizard.

IT-Conductor also periodically rescans the customer landscape to create/synchronize service hierarchy and dependencies. This process is useful when onboarding new or existing customer systems, exporting landscape inventory data, conducting migration assessments, providing hints, etc.

Note: It is recommended that customers standardize the monitoring accounts and roles across the landscape to streamline monitoring configuration.


Follow the steps below before configuring SAP systems and components based on LMDB objects for monitoring in IT-Conductor.

  1. Import the IT-Conductor LMDB Function Modules transport into SolMan to enable the extraction of LMDB tables.

  1. Set up SolMan in IT-Conductor by following the steps described in the respective user guides:

  2. Navigate to the service grid and verify if the systems were added under the SAP Landscape node.

Configure SAP System and Components based on LMDB Objects

  1. Visit service.itconductor.com and enter your login credentials.

  2. Navigate to the SAP Landscape node on the service grid.

Note: The Configure SAP System option will only appear on a discovered system that has yet to be configured.

  • Description - refers to any relevant information about the system being added.

  • Organization - refers to an administrative structure that defines objects with a common goal or purpose. If you previously created an organization, please select it.

  • Role - refers to the environment where the system will be used.

  • Site - refers to a logical object that describes a particular area or location, depending on the context in which it is used.

  • Gateway - allows communication between the customer's site network and the IT-Conductor cloud platform. See Gateway Setup for more details.

  • System ID - refers to a unique identifier for the SAP system.

  • Connection Type -specifies the type of connection used to access the SAP system (e.g., RFC, HTTP).

  • System Name - refers to a descriptive name of the SAP system.

  • System Number - refers to a unique number assigned to the SAP instance within the system.

  • Message Server - refers to the hostname or IP address of the SAP message server.

  • Message Server Port - refers to the port number used by the SAP message server.

  • Logon Group - refers to the name of the group used for load-balancing login requests.

  • Gateway Service - refers to the service name or port number of the SAP gateway.

  • Router String - refers to a string specifying the SAP router connection path.

  • SNC - if checked, it indicates whether Secure Network Communications (SNC) is used for secure connections.

  • Database - refers to the name or type of the database used by the SAP system. You may select one from the drop-down menu if you've previously set up databases.

  • Description - refers to any relevant information about the user account being added.

  • Application - refers to the name given to the system being added.

  • Person - refers to the IT-Conductor user who is adding the system.

  • Client - refers to a three-digit number identifying the client environment within the SAP system

  • User - refers to the monitoring SAP user.

  • Password - refers to the password of the SAP user.

  • Retype Password - refers to the same password provided in the Password field.

  1. Navigate back to the SAP Landscape node view in the service grid. Verify if the Monitoring tool is visible under the application's grid. The discovery algorithm automatically detects this and links it to the SAP Landscape.

Monitor SAP System and Components based on LMDB Objects

To show the different components associated with the discovered SAP systems, click the Monitoring tool.

You will be redirected to a view in the service grid that displays the SAP system metrics being monitored by IT-Conductor.

SAP System Key Metrics

  • Availability - refers to the operational state and accessibility of the SAP system.

  • Connection Failures - refer to the events where attempts to establish a connection are unsuccessful.

  • Missing Account - refers to the absence of a required user account or resource within the SAP system.

  • Retriever Failures - refer to the errors or issues encountered during the retrieval process of essential data or information within the SAP system.
