Session take over Disabled

SAP have disabled the session takeover once you upgrade to 4.6x.

Definitively SAP have blocked the functionality from the kernel.

The original program RSM04000 still exists but it doesn't work anymore.

Alternatively, you can used software like Microsoft NetMeetings.

However, in some of the SAP Version 4.x, you can still echo the user session.

This is how it goes :-

How to Create the Echoed Session :-

a)  Make sure the User you want to Echo to is logged onto the same system you are logged onto.
b)  Rel prior to 4.6B, Execute the SM04 transaction from your logon.
     Rel 4.6B and later, Execute program RSM04000 from your logon.
c)  Single Mouse-click to the command input area and key in 'slon' (without the quotes).
d)  Single Mouse-click to the Userid you want to 'Echo-on' to.
e)  Hit enter.
f)  You will now be echoing your screens to the other User.
Note: You have not taken over their original session, you have created a new session for the echo.

How to Terminate the Echoed Session :-

a)  Return to your SM04 screen display.
     Single Mouse-click to the command input area and key in 'slof' (without the quotes).
b)  Single Mouse-click to the Userid you want to 'Echo-off'.
c)  Hit enter.

Note: This will remove your Echoed session screen from the Users screen, but leave the User logged on with their original session.
