2654088 - External programs are started with wrong Environment variables


You have two SAP systems running in the same host: <sid1> & <sid2>

From system <sid1> you want to start an external program e.g sapxpg, to be run with environment variables from <sid2>
To do that, you set in SM59 the RFC destination with Gateway Options:
           Gateway Host       : <hostname>
           Gateway Service   :  <gateway service from <sid2>>

When executing the external program e.g via SM49 it takes the environment variables from <sid1> instead of <sid2> ones.
