Interface monitoring and support
What has changed in the past decade and what can we expect in the coming decade? How will they affect the requirements profile of SAP Basis experts and how can they adapt to them?
There are the following reasons that may lead to the termination of this step: TP_INTERFACE_FAILURE: Unable to call tp interface. TP_FAILURE: The tp programme could not be run. For more information, see the SLOG or ALOG log file. CANNOT_IMPORT_DDIC: Unable to import ABAP Dictionary. See the Dictionary Import Log for the cause of the error. AUTO_MOD_SPDD This step checks whether modifications to ABAP Dictionary objects can be adjusted automatically. RUN_SPDD_? This step prompts you to customise your modifications to ABAP Dictionary objects by calling the transaction SPDD.
Once you have met all the requirements described above, you can begin to prepare your system for processing digitally signed notes. To do this, the SAP Note with the number 2408073 must be recorded. This consists of a few steps for manual preparation, some automatically executable activities, and steps to rework the note. It is recommended not to change the file name after downloading. Note 2408073 has a file extension of "sar" and will first be unpacked with SAPCAR. There is a zip archive in it. The text file in it can be loaded into the Note Assistant with the SNOTE transaction via the Note upload. Once you have completed these steps, you can begin to install the note. The steps are detailed in the note itself and in a document attached to the note. Therefore, only a few points that need to be considered are highlighted below. When creating and clicking on Save the "CWBDS" object, a message may appear prompting you to select an object from the permitted namespace. Here the cursor can be placed in the object field and confirmed with Enter, then the query is made after a transport order. When creating the message texts in the "SCWN" message class, it is normal that after saving the changes several times (as many times as messages have been created) the question about the transport order must be confirmed. In addition, when creating the message texts, it should be noted that the texts provided in the tutorial attached to the note are available in English. If you are working on a German system, you should translate the texts into the German language when inserting them. The English texts can then be inserted as translations in the same window. To do this, select "Jump -> Translate". Conclusion It is a popular approach among hackers to use updates that are usually intended to fix bugs or increase security to inject malicious code into the system.
DBCO Database connections
The database layer is used to store all company data and consists of the database management system (DBMS) and the data itself. In every NetWeaver system there is a database server on which the SAP database is located. It provides all other applications with the necessary data. The data is not only data tables, but also applications, system control tables and user data. All basic components ensure that the user has fast and reliable access to this data.
SWPM - the Software Provisioning Manager integrates the classical tools like sapinst, ehpup, etc. for the maintenance/installation of SAP systems.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
Prerequisites You have loaded the appropriate support packages with the SPAM into your SAP system [page 15].
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
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.
