How to tell if Lawson and Landmark are Federated

, ,

Often, when you are having an issue with Lawson and/or Landmark, one of the questions Infor will ask you is whether your systems are federated. If you are unsure, there are a couple of simple ways to tell.

First, you could log into the WebSphere instance for your LSF application. Go to Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications. If you see the application “scwebadminapp”, it is very likely that your systems are federated.

Another way to tell is to review the file on either of your service (at LADIR/system for Landmark or LAWDIR/system for Lawson). If you see references to the remote server in these two files, and you see that there is an entry for “server.authservicename”, then your system is federated.
