In the case of distributed or local SAP systems, it can also be helpful if departments or decentralized IT units can schedule their own jobs themselves. It is important that the associated approval processes can also be mapped and easily tracked. This brings convenience, flexibility and a degree of freedom without neglecting operational security. The integration of the business departments can relieve the IT administrator and turn background processing into an end-to-end process integrated into the organization.
SAP Basis is also known as module BC or application Basis. In this context, SAP Basis refers to all transactions, programs and objects that control the functions of the overall system. This includes, among other things, user and authorization management as well as the configuration of interfaces via RFC.
If you need to reinstall a Support Package because of errors or because a SPAM update is required, reset its status. Resetting does not mean that the system is at an old state. Note that your system is inconsistent when you reset the status after items have already been imported (for example, after the DDIC_IMPORT step and following). Resetting the status should only be used to troubleshoot the issue and you should repeat the playback as soon as possible. Procedure To reset the status of a Support Package or Queue, select Add Status Reset. Result After updating the status, the corresponding entries in the cofile and in the log file are deleted. The support package must then be fully reloaded. The transaction SPAM starts the insertion with the step CHECK_REQUIREMENTS [page 26].
Regular maintenance tasks or the standard procedures must be described and defined to build checklists based on them and to control compliance with this standard. The SAPSolution-Manager can also support this as a tool of SAP e.g. through the Guided Procedures. In this context, it is also necessary to document the functionality of an underlying application and thereby determine what testing and monitoring activities are necessary. This is a reconciliation process between the SAP basis, other IT departments and, if necessary, the business areas concerned. The defined standard and the system's IST situation must be fully documented and regularly checked for compliance. This can be done through automated monitoring, validation using tools such as SAP-LVM (Landscape Virtualisation Management) or SAP Solution Manager, as well as manual checklists. Only the regular review of the standards guarantees their compliance. It can also support the regular use of SAP services such as Go-live Checks or Early Watch. Examples of how to standardise procedures are listed here: ・ Naming of system instances and logical hosts, or at least one central registry in a directory service, or LVM or SAP customer portal ・ Centrally starting and stopping systems, such as via the LVM ・ Categorising SAP instances by T-shirt size to define profile standards and cost them.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
This means that employees spend their time creating videos, preparing presentations and/or creating questionnaires.
The first project meeting took place within the framework of the DSAG Annual Congress in Bremen in 2015.
