3278264 - Unable to load server configuration SAP UI Landscape file on Sharepoint


  • After setting a configuration file on server using a file on a Sharepoint / Group site the following error is received:
    "The following server configuration file may be incorrect or unavailable https://path_to_server_file." Server response is not in XML format.
  • The server configuration file loads correctly when just put in another folder on user local machine (e.g. C:\temp\).
  • SAP cache file traces can show failed HTTP requests with 401 status (unauthorized):

SAP::FrontEnd::FileCache::CFileCache::Download_Inet_URL_By_WinInet: Opening and sending HTTP request with URL 'https://<hostname> Documents/SAPUILandscape.xml'. 

SAP::FrontEnd::FileCache::CFileCache::Download_Inet_URL_By_WinInet: HTTP request failed with status 401. On HTTP error we cannot download the file.

  • The configuration file is shared in the Sharepoint on Cloud, differently from On-premise within internal network scenario outlined in the SAP Note 3210315, which is supported as of SAP GUI 770 Patch Level 9.
