SAP Transaction code to pre-compile all system program
If I have to run SGEN and have to recycle the server as well for clearing
out memory, does it make sense to run SGEN first and recycle afterwards, because
SGEN will sort of litter the memory or is it inconsequential what runs first.
A D V E R T I S E M E N T
SGEN is ued to "compile" ABAP programs. Results are put in database.
So, if you restart SAP, compiled results will still be in the database, so,
no need to run SGEN again.
Make use of the transaction 'SGEN' to
re-generate all the SAP programs after you change version of your SAP kernel,
upgrade SAP system or apply support packages.
Do take care of the table spaces and use SAPDBA
to observe them.
Do it during a weekend which is the best or a period of time with very very
low users activity.
It will takes about 5 to 8 hours depending on the type of hardware
configuration you are using.
Reporting a Problem to SAP
When I tried to report a problem to SAP using
http://service.sap.com/message url it provided 4 steps
1) Choose system
2) Prepare Solution Search
3) Find Solution
4) Enter Message
I could do the step 1 but dont know what to do at
steps 2, 3 and 4.
SAP changed the customer message screens so you now have to navigate through
a search of the SAP Notes before being able to create a message.
We usually search the Notes extensively before we create a message, so we
just enter a blank search and then go on to create the message.
Follow the steps, It may solve your problem:
1. Copy following url into web browser : http://service.sap.com/message
It will ask you for your OSS ID and password .
A Screen which contain a push Button Select System displayed .

Here + indicate that you have a sub tree .
Specific product like SAP R/3 T for Services , SCM , CRM , ERP etc
3. Select the system for which you need to log a message
It will take you to message screen screen.

Apply Support Packs To My SAP SYSTEM
How can I apply support packs to my 4.7 IDES SYSTEM?
SAP"- SAP R3 4.7EE,
DATABASE : ORACLE 8.1.7
OS : WINDOWS 2003 SERVER
What is the step by step procedure and how to apply in r/3?
You have various issues with your setup:
- Oracle 8.1.7 is not supported under Windows 2003
- Oracle 8.1.7 is out of maintenance since three years
During SP application you will maybe run into problems that can't be
fixed since your installation is just too old and
As mentioned, it's true that it won't get supported on Oracle 8. The best
combination would be with 9i
Any How I have mentioned the steps below to apply for patches.
To Apply Support packs first up all you need to download the patches. When
you have the downloaded the file i.e.. (*.car ) patch file then you can extract
and apply it in two ways.
1. Go to command prompt through cmd (if you are using windows) and go to the
folder where you have download these files ( could be in <drive>\downloaded
folder\ ) type this command on command prompt without quotes "sapcar -xvf
<filename>.sar". Now it will create a folder called EPS and a folder called IN
inside EPS. Go to this folder and it will show two extracted files with
extension " .att " and " .pat ". Copy this two files into yours trans\eps\in
folder which could be something like <drive>\usr\sap\trans\eps\in folder.Then
type spam on your session and navigate to Support Package\Load Package\From
Application Server and it will ask for Path confirm it Say " YES"Select the
patch imported and double click on it and then click on small truck Icon and it
2. Type Spam on session then navigate to Support Package\Load Package\From
FrontEnd \ and Navigate to path where you have downloaded the *.SAR file of
Support Pack.Now it will open a popup window and then click on decompress button
( It is front-End process for extracting or decompressing .sar file in .pat and
.att extension ) After that click on Display-Define button on right hand side.)
Select the BASIS or ABAP patch ( whichever you are applying *) what ever you are
after and import it in queue. After that click on Small truck Icon in menu i.e..
(import Queue) and it Starts
* Note :- Basis patch starts with KBxxxx.sar and Abap Patch start with
* Note :- If you are applying all support pack it may ask you to increase your
spam level (SUPPORT PACK MANAGER).
