  • If the parameter service/protecedwebmethods is not set or is active and has the value DEFAULT or SDEFAULT or NONE +OSExecute, then the logfile SAPCONTROL_OSEXECUTE_YY_01.OUT has the below error:
19.06.2015 12:30:12
FAIL: HTTP error, HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
  • If the parameter service/protectedwebmethods is active and has the value NONE, then the logfile SAPCONTROL_OSEXECUTE_YY_01.OUT has the below error:
18.06.2015 16:23:30
FAIL: Permission denied

It is important to note that the KBA addresses the scenario where SUM tries to execute the webmethod OSExecute on a Dialog Instance with the NI_HTTP protocol (-prot NI_HTTP) and without the -user flag (-user <sidadm> <password>)



  • Update / upgrade of JAVA or DUAL stack systems with SUM
  • The system has atleast one Dialog Instance installed on a remote host
