Archiving and DART
The operator is now responsible for ensuring smooth and safe operation in the SAP environment. It has a basic understanding of the infrastructure and is well connected within the IT departments. For his daily work he uses suitable tools (e.g. monitoring tools), in which he is trained and trained. In the future, the focus will be on reactive activities such as monitoring systems and processing notifications. The operator acts as a customer of SME-expression standardisation and automation as well as the SME-expression-solution manager. Also, the operational aspects of this role are suitable for outsourcing. However, the accountable parts remain in the company.
To use all the features of the SAP Patch Manager, you need the following permissions: S_TRANSPRT S_CTS_ADMIN Both are in the S_A.SYSTEM permission profile. If you log in to the Mandant 000 and your user base contains the appropriate permission profile, then you can use all the features of the SAP Patch Manager. When you log in to another client or without the appropriate user profile, you can only use the display functions. Map this permission profile to the system administrator only. Only the system administrator should have permission to perform the following actions: Support Packages Download Support Packages Play Support Packages Confirm Successfully Recorded Support Packages Reset Support Package Status Support Packages eliminate errors in the SAP system or make necessary adjustments due to legal changes, for example. The affected objects will be replaced in your system. Each Support Package is valid for one release level (but for all databases and operating systems) and requires a precisely defined number of predecessors. The upgrade from the following release or revision level contains all support packages from the previous booths that were available until the upgrade was delivered. SPAM ensures that support packages are only played in the order specified. To avoid problems, play all support packages as they are deployed. This allows you to keep your system up to date.
SAP systems also need to be maintained
Part of an IT or cloud strategy may be to define architectural guidelines and a framework for the use and use of certain services. The SAP basis is to actively participate in shaping the rules and framework and the architectural guidelines, and bring in its existing expertise from the SAP technology environment.
The following list explains the steps in the order they are performed by SPAM: PROLOGUE This step will check if you are eligible to play Support Packages. CHECK_REQUIREMENTS In this step, different requirements for inserting are checked, e.g. the login of the transport control programme tp to your system. DISASSEMBLE In this step, the data files are unpacked from the corresponding EPS packages and placed in the transport directory. ADD_TO_BUFFER In this step, the queue is placed in the transport buffer of your system. TEST_IMPORT This step checks whether there are any objects that are overridden during the commit and are in unreleased tasks. IMPORT_OBJECT_LIST In this step, the object lists for the support packages that are in the queue are fed into the system. OBJECTS_LOCKED_? This step checks to see if there are any objects that are overwritten during the commit and that are in unreleased jobs. SCHEDULE_RDDIMPDP In this step the transport daemon (programme RDDIMPDP) is planned. ADDON_CONFLICTS_? This step checks to see if there are conflicts between objects in the queue and add-ons installed. SPDD_SPAU_CHECK This step will check if a modification match (transactions SPDD/SPAU) is necessary. DDIC_IMPORT In this step, all ABAP Dictionary objects of the queue are imported. AUTO_MOD_SPDD This step checks whether modifications to ABAP Dictionary objects can be adjusted automatically. RUN_SPDD_? This step prompts you to customise your modifications to ABAP Dictionary objects by calling the transaction SPDD. IMPORT_PROPER In this step, all repository objects and table entries are fed. Then actions such as distribution, implementation, activation and generation take place. AUTO_MOD_SPAU This step checks whether modifications can be adjusted automatically. RUN_SPAU_?
