Once you have met all the requirements described above, you can begin to prepare your system for processing digitally signed notes. To do this, the SAP Note with the number 2408073 must be recorded. This consists of a few steps for manual preparation, some automatically executable activities, and steps to rework the note. It is recommended not to change the file name after downloading. Note 2408073 has a file extension of "sar" and will first be unpacked with SAPCAR. There is a zip archive in it. The text file in it can be loaded into the Note Assistant with the SNOTE transaction via the Note upload. Once you have completed these steps, you can begin to install the note. The steps are detailed in the note itself and in a document attached to the note. Therefore, only a few points that need to be considered are highlighted below. When creating and clicking on Save the "CWBDS" object, a message may appear prompting you to select an object from the permitted namespace. Here the cursor can be placed in the object field and confirmed with Enter, then the query is made after a transport order. When creating the message texts in the "SCWN" message class, it is normal that after saving the changes several times (as many times as messages have been created) the question about the transport order must be confirmed. In addition, when creating the message texts, it should be noted that the texts provided in the tutorial attached to the note are available in English. If you are working on a German system, you should translate the texts into the German language when inserting them. The English texts can then be inserted as translations in the same window. To do this, select "Jump -> Translate". Conclusion It is a popular approach among hackers to use updates that are usually intended to fix bugs or increase security to inject malicious code into the system.
SAP administrators can basically be found wherever SAP systems are used. These are now numerous industries and departments of companies. SAP systems can be found in accounting, costing, activity-based costing and controlling. In all these areas, they take care of the smooth functioning and development, thus helping the company to make internal processes more efficient and consequently save costs and resources.
The digitization of businesses and the emergence of new technologies mean that admins have to adapt to constantly changing conditions. Currently, the following trends (which are becoming more and more evident in the market) can be mentioned:
The HANA database (in-memory database) is an in-house development by SAP and brings with it numerous innovations. For example, it is automatically monitored by the system. In addition, it stores not only operational (user-generated) data, but also system data for controlling application content as well as configuration tables.
Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
These programs can be used with the help of SAP Basis independently of the operating system and database used.
As a member of the SAP Basis specialist team, your responsibilities will include the design, operation, administration, support and installation of an extensive SAP system landscape with over 50 systems for 17 universities and 2 institutions in Lower Saxony.
