All of the above tasks have been part of SAP Basis Administration for decades. However, SAP software has changed a lot since the introduction of HANA in 2010, and with that, the SAP system administrator's job has changed as well. Here are some of the key differences:
Instead of letting the power consumer determine each parameter individually, the SAP basis can now create meaningful bundles, such as the power server with a lot of processor power, memory and disk space, and the light server in a simpler setup. Each bundle has its own price, which requires preparation and consideration. The principle of consistently aligning IT services with repeatable standards is thus directly linked to the standardisation of processes and technical specifications. Standardised products can only be offered if process processes are standardised. Likewise, these can only be offered as simple and comprehensible product bundles if technical standards are established.
SAP BASIS - THE SECURE FOUNDATION OF THE SAP SYSTEM
The Precalculation Server is a standalone application that allows you to generate and distribute Excel workbooks based on SAP BI data. Are you already using the Precalculation Server or would you like to take advantage of it in the future? I would be happy to explain the steps from installing the Precalculation Server to finally starting the instances on the target system so that you can use the Precalculation Server for your purposes. As a reader of our blog, you are certainly interested in tricks and tricks that will make your SAP system easier to handle. You may be familiar with the situation where you want to install a Precalculation Server yourself. Here you will learn how this task can be implemented in the SAP environment. Prerequisites For example, you need a Windows 7 or a Windows Server 2012 instance on which the Precalculation Server is installed to operate the Precalculation Server. Both 32 and 64-bit versions can be used. In addition, the machine requires a .NET installation to run the Precalculation Server in addition to a Microsoft Excel installation (32-bit version is essential). Download the installation files In advance, you should download the latest installation files from the official SAP website to the target computers. Cleanup Phase If you already have an existing installation on the system, the first thing you need to do is uninstall all items to use a clean host for the Precalculation Server. You can do this by calling the Windows Control Panel: The order must be followed according to the SAP documentation. Therefore, apply the following procedure for uninstallation, no installation of SAP should be visible anymore: Order: 1) SAP BW Precalculation Service 2) SAP Business Explorer 3) SAP GUI for Windows XY Note: During the installation and uninstallation of individual components, the progress bar status may be suspended at certain locations. This is not a cause for concern, but a normal behaviour. Often, it will stand at 92% or 95% for about 10 minutes.
SAP Basis Operation is responsible for ensuring the technical functionality of an SAP system. It includes all the technical components mentioned above. These are used to perform the following tasks.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
Technical and organisational measures and processes must then ensure that the desired level of safety is implemented.
In our example transport the transport would be called "DEVK12345" (deriving from the cofiles file K12345.DEV) This should now return a positive message from SAP and the transport is attached to the import queue.
