Check the output of the report. If there are some errors or warnings in the output of the report, please take corrective actions and run the report again and ensure there are no errors

An RFC connection can be made between 2 systems using Transaction code SM59
4) Setup RFC connection between your solution manager and the SAP service market place
5) Assign the solution monitoring roles to the users
6) Setup your satellite system in a solution landscape of the solution manager(SMSY)
7) Make sure SLD is configured and working fine for satellite system (using Rz70 and SLDCHECK transactions)
