Provision of services and basics
The support packages were successfully fed into a system (test or development system). You performed the modification synchronisation. Procedure Load the support packages into the next system (quality or production system). You must distinguish between the following cases: Their systems have a common transport directory: Release Level 3.x: If the *.ATT files are not present, run RSEPSDOL in the source system and then RSEPSUPL in the target system. If the *.ATT files are present, run only RSEPSUPL in the target system. Release level 4.x: Select SPAM Support Package Upload in the target system. Your systems do not have a common transport directory: Release Level 3.x: Run RSEPSDOL in the source system to create the *.ATT files if they do not already exist. With ftp, transfer all files with the *.PAT extension in binary mode and all files with the *.ATT extension in ASCII mode from the /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in directory (UNIX and AS/400) or
:\usr\sap\trans\EPS\in (Windows NT) of the source system to the target system transport directory. Run RSEPSUPL in the target system. Release level 4.x: With ftp in binary mode, transfer all files with the *.PAT extension from the source system's /usr/sap/trans/EPS/in (UNIX and AS/400) or :\usr\sap\trans\EPS\in (Windows NT) directory to the target system's transport directory. Select SPAM Support Package Upload in the target system. Play the Support Packages as usual. Import the Modification Balance Transport. Steps of the SPAM The SAP Patch Manager informs you about the step in progress in the status bar. If you want to know what steps are being performed for which scenario, run RSSPAM10.
Transporting transport orders from one system line to another or importing third-party transport orders into the SAP system is also an occasional task for an SAP basis administrator. As in my last blog post on system modifiability, I would like to offer you a way to quickly present this topic. So you will find a step-by-step guide which you can follow if you have already understood the content of the topic, but only the steps need to be taken. What are the requirements? Transport orders include two files, titled "data" and "cofiles". These files consist of a six-character alphanumeric combination and a file extension, which often represents the system from which the files were exported. The first character is always a K (the cofiles file) or an R (the data file). For our example we call the files K12345_DEV and R12345_DEV. These files are of course needed for an import into your own SAP system. Furthermore, you need access to the file system or the SAP directories, as they have to insert the above files there manually. In addition, the transaction STMS is required in the SAP system because it attaches the transport orders to the import queue. Now, if you have all of this available, we can start with the import: What is the procedure? Operating System Level Preparation. The first step is to copy the files to the transport directory of the SAP system. This is usually below /usr/sap/trans, but can be changed individually depending on the system. If you want to make sure that you are working in the correct directory, you can look in the transaction AL11 to see which directory is specified under "DIR_TRANS". This is the right directory to work on. Here the existing files are copied into it, namely the cofiles file (K12345_DEV) in the cofiles folder (/usr/sap/trans/cofiles) and the data file (R12345_DEV) in the data folder (/usr/sap/trans/data). Note: In this case, especially for companies with multiple systems on multiple servers, the access permissions and the file owner need to be changed so that the import in the target system does not cause problems.
SAP Performance Optimization
IT professionals are taking the first steps in automation with the use of tools like RedHat Ansible. At our company, for example, Ansible is used for mass rollouts of agents in large environments.
This saves us a lot of time and ensures that no checks are overlooked when performing manually. Security Automation via HR Permissions HR permissions are a very risky topic in many companies and are often only touched with silk gloves.
Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
It would also be possible to designate contact points (contact points) for upstream and downstream IT departments and external service providers and suppliers.
In the case of critical errors, a new attempt should be made or an alert issued so that an administrator can intervene manually.
