As an SAP Basis administrator, you are faced with the challenge of balancing acute daily business and recurring routine tasks. As the complexity of the systems and the interdependencies tend to increase, the challenges are great and the requirements are growing. Daily and at the same time business-critical routine tasks are SAP job control and regular data backups. Automating these tasks can free up time for the day-to-day business of maintenance, servicing, support and troubleshooting. Clear monitoring and alerting in the event of an error help to maintain operational reliability and meet corporate compliance requirements.
User name without restrictions - critical? Depending on the release of the SAP_BASIS component in your system, invisible special characters may end up in the user name. This is especially critical if only spaces or alternate spaces are used for the user name when creating a new user. In Unicode systems, "alternative" spaces, so-called "wide spaces", can be used in addition to the normal space character (hexadecimal value 20). For example, the key combination "ALT+0160" can be used to insert non-breaking spaces. If a user is now created whose user name consists exclusively of such alternative spaces, this can be confusing. This is because entries for this user ID do appear in change documents, but the impression is created that the entry was created by a non-existent / deleted user. This circumstance can lead to confusion. In addition, certain special characters in the user name can also lead to errors, for example in the Change and Transport System (CTS). This is because the user name is also used in the CTS-ORG to create a file with the same name in the transport directory. Furthermore, there are letters/characters that look identical in different alphabets, but have a different hexadecimal value in the character set. This means that confusion in user names cannot be completely ruled out. Seemingly identical user names then stand for different users.
