USE OF SECURE NETWORK COMMUNICATION
Following the recommendation of dividing the SAP basis into an application-orientated and infrastructure-related SAP basis [A4], Figure 3 shows a possible presentation form. The SAP-Basis interface function is structured into a SAP basis, which is close to the application and is responsible for coordination and communication with vertical and higher IT specialist and business areas, and a SAP basis close to the infrastructure. The infrastructure-related SAP basis in turn serves as the link between the application-orientated SAP basis and the infrastructure levels. Subject Matter Experts will perform the link task again. In the application-orientated SAP basis, in turn, technology architects are more likely to be placed. The innovation activity or innovation team aspect of the SAP basis is placed at the level of the SAP basis, which is close to the application, because the existing capabilities allow it to assume a leading, also coordinating role and acquire expertise both by adding the SAP basis near the infrastructure and the downstream IT departments.

SWPM - the Software Provisioning Manager integrates the classical tools like sapinst, ehpup, etc. for the maintenance/installation of SAP systems.
System replication is better
To influence the ABAP/Dynro generation, select Additions in the entry screen of the SPAM. Function Menu Path Turn Generation on or off Settings Ignore generation errors during the commit. Ignore error in SPAM steps If an error is detected in one step, the transaction SPAM stops processing until the error is resolved. You can always check with Status to see in which step and for what reason the abortion took place. Types of errors There are the following types of error messages: Security checks of the transaction SPAM A typical example is the OBJECTS_LOCKED_? step. The SPAM transaction interrupts processing when objects are still locked in jobs to be overwritten by the queue. Error messages of the programmes tp and R3trans The cause of error can always be found in the corresponding transport log. A typical example is the TEST_IMPORT step. This checks to see if there are unconfirmed repairs to objects overwritten by the queue. The affected objects are listed in the Testimport log. Incorrect setup of the Change and Transport System Common errors are the lack of appropriate rights to the files of the Change and Transport System or the use of old programme versions of tp or R3trans. Verify that the transport tools are working correctly with Transp Tool. Check Tool. A typical example is the DISASSEMBLE step. If
adm does not have write permissions for the /usr/sap/trans/data (UNIX) directory, SPAM will cancel DISASSEMBLE with CANNOT_DISASSEMBLE_R_DATA_FILE. The transaction SPAM requires that the Change and Transport System [External] is set up correctly. For more information on known problems, see Notes 97630 and 97620.
The tasks described above, which occur at rather irregular intervals and involve a certain degree of complexity due to the lack of routine or process know-how, should be examined in order to determine whether they can be performed more efficiently by an external service provider. One question to be answered is whether it is necessary to keep the necessary knowledge in the company in order to be able to react faster than the external service provider. For example, for business critical systems. Security aspects should also be considered, as external persons gain access to the system. From now on, outtasking performance must be regularly monitored and checked for quality and documentation. A complete dependence on the external partner must not arise.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
SAP SE offers various training courses and certifications for SAP Basis administrators and SAP Basis consultants.
What is important is an end-to-end view based on the process and not just an individual view of the systems, services or components involved.
