System copy, system update, etc
Within SAP R/3 Enterprise, the SAP Basis Plug-In is a prerequisite for you to use the SAP R/3 Plug-In. SAP Basis Plug-In and SAP R/3 Plug-In must always have the same release level, for example PI 2004.1 and PI Basis 2004.1. If you plan to upgrade SAP R/3 Plug-In within SAP R/3 Enterprise, you must also upgrade SAP Basis Plug-In. As of SAP Basis Plug-In 2005.1, the release levels of the two plug-ins no longer need to correspond. However, the SAP R/3 Plug-In Support Package for PI 2004.1, which contains new interfaces, still requires a specific SAP Basis Plug-In. For example, SAP R/3 Plug-In Support Package 10 for SAP Plug-In 2004.1 requires SAP Basis Plug-In 2005.1.
This step prompts you to customise your modifications to Repository objects by calling the transaction SPAU. EPILOGUE In this step the insertion is completed. Among other things, it is checked that the queue has been fully processed. SPAM: Troubleshooting The SAP Patch Manager performs several steps during the recording. If errors occur, SPAM will interrupt the playback to ensure consistency of the recording. After fixing the error, you can resume playback. When you cancel, a dialogue box appears with the information on which step and why the editing failed. This dialogue box is also available when you select Jump Status and then Queue, Support Package or SPAM Update (View Support Package Status (page 29)). Depending on the processing step in which the error occurred, the dialogue box will provide you with additional specific assistance to correct the error. You may also need to reset the status of a Support Package [page 36]. If you are having problems downloading Support Packages from the SAPNet - R/3 frontend, please see Note 34376. If you are having problems working with SPAM, read the note 17381This note gives you an overview of known problems and their solutions. For a list of the most important information about Online Correction Support (OCS), see Note 97620, which is updated regularly. If you are unable to resolve your issue with the information provided or with the following information, then record a problem message in the SAPNet - R/3 frontend with the information from the error dialogue box and send it to the BC-UPG-OCS topic group. Note 97660 when capturing the problem message. See also: Generation Error [Page 30].
SAP Performance Optimization
SPAM/SAINT updates (SPAM update) provide updates and improvements to SAP Patch Manager and SAP Add-On Installation Tool. There is always one SPAM update per review that will be updated over time. The version can be found in the short description, e.g.: SPAM/SAINT update - version 4.6A/0001 A SPAM update always comes first in the list of support packages in the SAPNet - R/3 frontend, i.e. before the other support packages. We recommend that you always install the latest version of a SPAM update before installing Support Packages. Prerequisites You can successfully commit a SPAM update only if there are no broken support packages in the system. If there are cancelled support packages, a dialogue box will alert you. You have two options: You will first complete the queue and then the SPAM update. You reset the status of the queue, play the SPAM update first and then the queue. You can reset the status of the Queue by using the Add Status Reset Queue. Note that your system is inconsistent when you reset the queue after objects have already been imported (for example, after an error in the DDIC_IMPORT step and following). Therefore, you should only reset the queue if DDIC_IMPORT was cancelled before the step. For more information, see Steps of the SPAM [page 26]. Note that starting with SPAM/SAINT version 11, it is no longer possible to reset the queue after the DDIC_IMPORT step and following. How to Check if the SPAM update you are offering is newer than the one you are receiving. The current SPAM version appears in the title bar of the SPAM window. To play the latest SPAM update, select Support Package Insert SPAMUpdate. SPAM updates are automatically confirmed after successful insertion. Load Support Package Usage Before you can insert Support Packages, you must first load the appropriate Support Packages.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
If you want to skip the backgrounds and prefer a direct step-by-step guide, you can jump directly into the last section. Preparation For this workaround, you need access to both the source system and the BW system. In addition, they shall have the possibility to access the SE37 and execute functional modules there. Especially in production systems this is a very critical justification. So assume that you may need a Firefighter user for this action. Working in the BW system Now that the preparations have been completed, you have to call a FuBa on the BW system and on the source system, which solves the connection on the respective page. Beginning on the BW system, go into the transaction SE37 and call the function block "RSAR_LOGICAL_SYSTEM_DELETE": RSAR_LOGICAL_SYSTEM_DELETE Enter the required values here. The following table helps you fill in: Field Description I_LOGSYS The logical name of the source system. The name of the source system, as found in RSA1, will be entered here. In addition, this name can also be found in the DB table TBDLT. I_FORCE_DELETE Boolean, X = Delete despite error messages I_NO_TRANSPORT Boolean, X = This change should not be transported to subsequent systems I_NO_AUTHORITY Boolean, X = Ignore Permission Checks Work in the source system In the source system, go to transaction SE37 and call the function block "RSAP_BIW_DISCONNECT" : The descriptions of the fields are as follows. These can be found in the RSBASIDOC source system connection table Field Description I_BIW_LOGSYS The logical name of the BW system. In the RSBASIDOC table, find the correct value in the column "RLOGSYS". I_OLTP_LOGSYS The logical name of the source system. The column ‘SLOGSYS’ in the table RSBASIDOC. I_FORCE_DELETE The logical name of the BW system. In the RSBASIDOC table, find the correct value in the column "RLOGSYS". Completion In the end, you have to call the respective function block in the BW and source system, fill in the parameters and execute the function block.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
They are therefore largely excluded from operational operations.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
In addition to this, as already discussed by Recommendation [A2], it is then worthwhile to establish a catalogue of criteria for evaluating and looking in detail at certain characteristics of the application or services.
