We are currently operating a SAP NW PO 7.31 SP8 and will be upgrading to SP14 in the not too distant future. I wanted to put together a handover and acceptance checklist for my support team. The task was to perform a full system health check as quickly as possible whilst ensuring all relevant components are checked. Now we could go on for hours checking everything in minute detail but I don’t believe that adds value. The following checklist is based upon my own experience and refering to the SAP document ‘Readiness Check V1.4’

I would be interested to see if anyone finds this useful but even more importantly if there any any omissions.
