Today I encountered a return code 8 (RC=8) when a datastore object (DSO) was transported to the quality environment. Knowing that other transports were already imported successfully the error message below looked a bit odd to me.
The error message indicates that there is something wrong with the RFC connection. With this message in mind I checked transaction SM59 to verify if everything was setup properly. Everything looked fine. Also the partner profiles, configured by using WE20, were correct.
After searching (again…) on the SCN website I bumped in to this thread, where table RSLOGSYSDEST is mentioned. The thread describes that the issue could be caused by the references found in this table. In my case record BWQ010 should point to destination BWQ010. As seen in the screenshot below the values were not aligned.
In order to align these values it is necessary to restore the BI source system in BW. After this action was executed the entries in table RSLOGSYSDEST were changed to the right values! It’s as simple as that!
