SAP Basis - trends for the coming years
As we explained in SAP Basis, your SAP Basis administrator (or team) is directly responsible for keeping your SAP landscape healthy, online, and up-to-date. This includes:
The Log function displays logs for SPAM steps using the tp transport control programme. After successfully inserting the queue, you should always check these logs. Associating the SPAM steps with log files Step Log file DISASSEMBLE_PATCH Generate Cofile TEST_IMPORT Testimport IMPORT_OBJECT_LIST Commandfile Import DDIC-IMPORT DD-Import IMPORT_PROPER DD-Activation Import ADO-Import Verification Versions Method Execution ABAP/Dynpro Generation Procedure To get to the log display, select Image Jump Log Queue. Importance of Return Codes Return-Code Meaning 0 or 4 System information and warnings Warnings are generally uncritical for the system. However, you should check them anyway, as in rare cases follow-up errors may occur. Larger 4 Serious errors that must be fixed before you can successfully complete the commit. Confirm Queue Usage Confirm the successful insertion of the Queue in your system. This ensures that additional support packages can be used in the future. Without this confirmation, it is not possible to insert additional support packages. If you have not yet confirmed successful support packages, you will be prompted to confirm these support packages when upgrading your system. Prerequisites You have successfully imported one or more Support Packages. Procedure Confirm successful insertion of the Support Packages into your system with the Support Package.
Operating systems and databases
The presentation layer is the top layer of the R/3 SAP Basis system and includes the communication with the user. Here, the data is graphically prepared for the user on the end device by means of software components from the application programs of the application layer. The presentation layer is the interface to the user (SAP GUI).
The dataowner should be the
adm of the target system, which you can change (in the Unix console) with "chown adm K12345.DEV" (respectively R12345.DEV for the data file). To change the access permissions, you can use the command "chmod 664 K12345.DEV". Attach transport jobs in the SAP system Once this has been done, you can attach the transport orders in your SAP system to the import queue. This is done by using the STMS -> Import Overview (F5) to display the import queues. Select the import queue of the target system with a double click. After that, you will receive a pop-up under "Additions"->"More orders"->"Attach", which you can use to attach the transport orders to the import queue. In the pop-up you have to name the exact transport order. The correct name for this is as follows: The first three characters are the file extension of the two files you copied into the transport directory. The last characters consist of the file name of the cofiles file. In our example transport the transport would be called "DEVK12345" (deriving from the cofiles file K12345.DEV) This should now return a positive message from SAP and the transport is attached to the import queue. Now you can import this transport into the system just like any ordinary transport order. Step-by-step Summary Copy Cofiles/data file to transport directory Normally /usr/sap/trans, if not —> AL11 -> DIR_TRANS Customise file owners and permissions chown adm chmod 664 In SAP system: STMS -> Import Overview -> Select Import Queue -> Additions -> Additional Jobs -> Attach Enter Transport Jobs ( ).
