Database maintenance, scheduling and restoring database backups
As we know, BASIS is a set of tools. This tool has the following different functionalities.
SAP Basis is a middleware tool for applications, operating system and database. The SAP Basis consultant should be able to perform the following tasks.
Due to the large number of different constellations of database and SAP software, the job as an SAP Basis administrator is very diverse and, in addition to the topics mentioned above, also includes the following:
Either temporary programme calls are blocked that are actually desired or enormously large gateway logs must be analysed. If, due to the heavy workload, one were to decide to forgo the use of the access control lists permanently, this would be a major security vulnerability. The unprotected system does not have any limitations on the external services that may register, and there are no rules for running programmes. One possible consequence would be, for example, the registration of an external system on which malicious programmes exist. At the moment when foreign programmes are running on your system without any control, you can expect that great damage will be done. For example, it ranges from an unnoticed reading of purchase and sales figures, a diversion of funds, to a paralysis or manipulation of the entire system. In addition, this scenario is also possible for poorly maintained access control lists. Our solution: secinfo and reginfo Generator for SAP RFC Gateway To solve the problem, we have developed a generator that can automatically create secinfo and reginfo files based on gateway logs. The basic idea is based on the logging-based approach. It performs the task of time-consuming analysis of log files and also ensures maximum reliability through automation. Nevertheless, the entries of the generated files should be checked by one person. Since the log files used as input are sensitive data, of course none of the inserted data leave your system. More information about the generator can be found here.
SAP administrators are present wherever SAP systems are used. This is now true for many industries and business sectors. SAP systems can be found in the areas of accounting, cost accounting, activity-based costing and controlling. In all of these areas, they ensure smooth operation and further development, helping the company to make internal processes more efficient and thus save costs and resources.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" complement missing functions in the SAP basis area.
Therefore, it is important to take the objects task by task.
It acts as a kind of "mediator" between the services and the applications.
