Update & Upgrade
SAP Basis essentially consists of the three classic software layers:
For more information about the lowest support package level for SAP ABA and SAP Basis to install an SAP Basis Plug-In, see the SAP Service Marketplace. For more information about the lowest support package level for the corresponding SAP R/3 plug-in, see the SAP Service Marketplace. This level depends on the release of SAP R/3 or SAP R/3 Enterprise.
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.

Clarification and preparation of measures for the use of the Security Audit Log
So-called Access Control Lists (ACL) offer a good possibility to secure your gateway in order to exclude unwanted external accesses to the database of the application server. With the help of the ACL files reginfo and secinfo an access control can be implemented, in which allowed as well as forbidden communication partners can be defined. The reginfo file controls the registration of external programs on the gateway, which means that rules can be defined that allow or prohibit programs. With the help of the file secinfo you can define which users are allowed to start an external program. To be able to use these files, you must set the parameters gw/reg_info and gw/sec_info (transaction RZ11). For more information, refer to SAP Note 1408081.
However, the tasks also include strategic and planning aspects. For example, administrators define requirements and standards, select and control upgrades or extensions, implement monitoring processes, and take care of necessary backups and emergency management.
Use "Shortcut for SAP Systems" to accomplish many tasks in the SAP basis more easily and quickly.
