Installation/upgrade of SAP systems based on HANA Platform
Decentralized, cross-site monitoring and alerting
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].
You will need to download the support package again. CANNOT_DETERMINE_DATA_FILES: The name of a data file could not be determined because a profile parameter was not configured correctly. Verify the settings using the RSPARAM report. CANNOT_DISASSEMBLE_R_DATA_FILE: Unable to extract an R3trans data file. A possible cause of error is that the appropriate OCS file was not found or the data file could not be opened for writing. An error occurred while transferring a 20K block from the EPS inbox to the /usr/sap/trans/data (UNIX) directory. CANNOT_DISASSEMBLE_D_DATA_FILE: Unable to extract an ADO data file. The reasons are the same as for CANNOT_DISASSEMBLE_R_DATA_FILE. CANNOT_CREATE_COFILE: The cofile could not be created from the corresponding data file. One of the possible causes of error is that
adm does not have write permissions for the /usr/sap/trans/cofiles (UNIX) directory.
Backup/restore and disaster recovery
A degree in computer science is usually a prerequisite and is now almost compulsory. Those who have been trained as IT specialists can take advantage of further training to become SAP Basis Administrators and thus position themselves particularly well on the job market. However, quite a few companies also offer to train employees to make them fit to work as SAP Basis Administrators.
Overall, SAP Basis operation requires not only a high-quality technical infrastructure, but also distinct know-how and experience. This is because the management of the underlying SAP NetWeaver and SAP HANA platforms has become extremely complex.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
As an interface to the user, the presentation layer contains software components (the SAP GUI) by means of which the user is presented with the application.
To do this, re-enter a suitable role name via the PFCG.
