Own development testing is very common in the quality system. Therefore, the customising/workbench developments must be transported to the appropriate system. It is highly recommended to use the order type "Transport of copies". This post explains why you should use this type of order and what you need to consider. Transporting copies - Why? All objects on the original transport order remain locked. Only the copies of the objects are transported to the next SAP system. If something goes wrong during transport, objects can easily be recollected or added. In addition, when copies are transported to the test system, no import is created in the production system. The import queue remains clean and clear. The problem with overtaking transports is eliminated. Transporting Copies - Creation To create a transport of copies, call the Transport Organiser through the transaction SE01. Check the Order Type "Transfers of Copies" and click View Create a new order (using the Document icon or F6 key). Then select the order type "Transport of copies". Then define a description and the destination system of the transport. Transport of copies - Add objects The transport order of the type "Transports of copies" was created. Now we want to add the objects of the original to be transported. Unfortunately, not all objects of an order can be copied directly. Therefore, it is important to take the objects task by task. A transport order can contain multiple tasks. Press CTRL+Y to highlight the task ID and then copy it by CTRL+C. Right-click on your order of the type "Transport of Copies" and select the Include objects option. Select the object list of an order and copy in the ID of the task that contains the objects to be transported. Confirm your input. All objects of the order are transferred to the transport of copies. You can then transport the objects to the test system using the normal transport procedure.
But when it comes to the intricacies of large SAP environments, Ansible quickly reaches its limits. If you want to use Ansible to implement simple automations - for example, starting and stopping SAP environments - you have to put up with a lot of manual effort and complicated scripts.
Analyses Proactive measures for optimization
In addition, the SAP Basis team can easily implement new functionality in the new system - without compromising the security, stability or quality of the previous function, which would be the case with non-certified and inexperienced people. Smooth implementation is enabled by project experience, training and certificates.
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.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes it easier and quicker to complete a number of SAP basis tasks.
In order to ensure the necessary expertise both in the direction of application and application-related IT departments as well as in the direction of infrastructure units, the SAP basis should be divided into an infrastructure-related SAP basis and an application-orientated SAP basis.
SAP Basis refers to the administration of SAP system that includes activities like installation and configuration, load balancing, and performance of SAP applications running on Java stack and SAP ABAP. This includes the maintenance of different services related to database, operating system, application and web servers in SAP system landscape and stopping and starting the system. Here you can find some useful information about SAP Basis: www.sap-corner.de.
For many companies, the topic of security automation still offers a lot of potential in terms of time savings and process optimisation.
