STMS_IMPORT Import queue
The entry screen gives a brief overview of the status of the last queued. In case of incomplete support packages, the last (aborted) step of the SPAM will be displayed. System: Check the correct function of the transport tools using Tool Transport Tool. Make sure there is enough space (the size of the OCS files multiplied by 2) in the transport directory (see the R/3 profile parameter DIR_TRANS with the AL11 transaction or the SE38 transaction and the report RSPARAM). Make sure that there is enough space, especially in the subdirectories trans/EPS/in and trans/data. Use the latest SPAM update. Verify that the SPAM update offered in the SAPNet - R/3 frontend or the SAPNet - Web Frontend is newer than the one available in your system. You can see the version of the SPAM update available in your system in the title bar of the SPAM image. We recommend that you always run the latest SPAM update first [page 14] to avoid problems when playing. The insertion of a SPAM update is analogous to the insertion of support packages. There must be no incomplete support packages in your system. To do this, under Folder in the SPAM, select Aborted Support. Packages and select View. Support packages should not be displayed. The status light should be green. If not, view the detailed status and log information for all support packages in the system. Select Jump Status or Jump Log.

In the past, when we deployed SAP environments, we first had to work out a detailed sizing and architecture and pass it on to the procurement team, which then ordered the systems and installed them in the data center. From there, it went on to the network team, the storage team, the operating system team, and the database team. So it was not uncommon for three to six months to pass between the architecture design and the installation of a new SAP system.

Practical experience at home and abroad has given us a proven view of heterogeneous system landscapes. This flows into our consulting as a further plus point and creates not only smooth functionality but also cost efficiency of your individual system landscape.
Why should we even have an individual SAP Security Check performed? Your SAP authorisation concept is designed to ensure the security and protection of data against unauthorised access and abuse. The technical complexity of SAP systems and the ongoing adaptations of business processes often lead to unknown security vulnerabilities. In addition, the increasing digital networking with business partners offers further attack points on your SAP system. SAP Security Check gives you an overview of the security situation of your SAP systems. This will identify potential risks that could jeopardise the safe operation of your IT landscape. Your starting situation The ongoing changes in your IT systems lead to unrecognised security vulnerabilities and your auditors will regularly report to you in the final report on abuses in the authorisation concept. The legal requirements (e.g. EU guidelines) to secure your business processes and IT systems have not yet been implemented and the increasing networking with business partners presents new challenges to your security system. The security-related system settings and permissions settings applied to your SAPS systems are poorly documented, which in many cases causes the system settings to allow extensive critical access unchecked. Critical SAP permissions, profiles, and roles identify permissions that allow critical operations to be performed in terms of security or from a legal or business perspective are called "critical permissions" by SAP. The granting of critical allowances must therefore generally be carried out with particular care and should therefore be planned in advance. Technical and organisational measures and processes must then ensure that the desired level of safety is implemented.
For administrators, a useful product - "Shortcut for SAP Systems" - is available in the SAP basis area.
These are used to perform the following tasks.
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
