SAP notes 1081287 and 1083109
Reason and Prerequisites
During the application of support pakage with the transactions SAINT and SPAM, the system sees that there are strippers active, and the following error message
In the case of ST-PI ST / A-PI you can proceed with a skip
For all other ignoring the error can result in loss of data
How to proceed.
1. Delete the setup tables.
To prevent the system from BW going to act directly on the ERP tables, the initial load or full, it creates the setup tables. At the fury of the initial load or full these tables are not used. You can delete them without loss of data.
To understand what “application” delete
In our case
To delete them you can use either the bins that the transaction LBWG
2. Empty queues
Each time a user / batch editing an entry, the change is recorded in a queue. Until then the system is in motion, the code will continue to be created. For this reason it is appropriate to proceed with the upgrade at a time in which you can disable access to users.
Queque name MCEX*
DO NOT DELETE THE CODE HAND BUT PROCESS THEM
To process the queues need to run the programs RMBWV302 and RMBWV306.
In the production are scheduled JOB
Run the JOB and check that all queues have been processed
Process queues does not mean sending them to the BW system, but simply move the data into other areas, will then be recorded in BW with uploads nightlife.
Caution! Transactions LBWE and LBWG be performed on the principal of which are to be scheduled queues, in our case 120.
If the queues are empty, then you can proceed with the UPGRADE.
