Updates & upgrades
This advanced SAP administration training course provides confidence in in-depth administration tasks on your SAP system. For example, SAP administration with WebAS with ABAP and Java, system configuration and system updates, importing patches and corrections, and updating users and authorizations. Furthermore, the program includes the setup of printers, knowledge of system security and system monitoring as well as transport functions. Not to forget the help system and data backup in your SAP systems.
I recommend that you schedule the background job PFCG_TIME_DEPENDENCY with the report RHAUTUPD_NEW. Scheduling the RHAUTUPD_NEW report with two variants has proven to be a best practice: Once a day before users log on for the first time (e.g. midnight or very early in the morning). This way the users are synchronized once a day. Once a month (or even once a week) with the option "Perform cleanup", so that obsolete profiles and user mappings are regularly cleaned up. Also handy: If the naming conventions of your roles allow it, you can also align the report according to different time zones. For example, I have a customer who runs the user synchronization for his users in the USA and Asia at different times, so that the daily business of the respective users is not disturbed.
The establishment of Software-Defined Data Centres or IaaS are the key to further flexibility and standardisation of SAP technology infrastructure. The concept of a Software-Defined Data Centre is to create an abstraction layer over the individual virtualised components, such as servers, networks or storage, that controls, controls, provisioning, and automates the entire infrastructure.
SAP Basis is the core component of any SAP infrastructure. Both in older versions such as R/3 and the current S/4HANA. It ensures that the necessary services and foundations are provided for the SAP system and all applications. The biggest advantage of an SAP environment over specialized tools - its variability - also makes for great complexity.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
Furthermore, it includes some administration tools and middleware programs.
The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.
In this context, SAP Basis refers to all transactions, programs and objects that control the functions of the overall system.
