3373138 - SNC for SM59 destinations that use load balancing


After configuring SNC for a type 3 - ABAP Connection SM59 RFC destination, it is not clear if the connection is truly using SNC due to same observations.

When editing the "Partners" and "Msg. server" SNC names on the SNC popup, changing the field from (for example, using the SAP CommonCryptoLib)

  • p:CN=<correct subject> (...)


  • p:CN=<correct subject>_<corrupted entry> (...)

does not disturb the destination and the connection test is still successful.

Examples are not limited to above and can be any given values, as long as the destination and connection test are not disturbed.
