SAP license maintenance
High flexibility for ad hoc growth
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].
The default permissions to open and use a launchpad are the SAP_UI2_USER_700. The role for the administration is SAP_UI2_ADMIN_700. In the administration interface, the launchpad can be customised, so this permission should only be released to a few users for administration.

An SAP administrator has the task of controlling a company's SAP system and ensuring its proper functioning. He/she maintains and monitors SAP applications and is also responsible for their development.
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.
