2165379 - Collective note for "Backend error occured" / "Backend error occured"


A popup with title "Backed error occurred" / "Backend error occured" may be displayed after a series of operations on SAP GUI for HTML (Webgui). After this Webgui hangs and the user has to close or refresh the current page to recover it. A “Backend error occurred” is like a ABAP short dump. So even if one “Backend error” is fixed with a kernel patch, that does not mean that another one can be fixed with the same kernel patch. It happens in varied areas. We can get to know what is exactly going wrong by reading the contents on the popup. In this note, we are collecting some typical "Backend error" scenarios and the relevant notes so that you can reach the right solution which fits your situation best faster. This note will be kept updated.
