With this new feature support package – SAP Landscape Management 3.0 SP17 – we’re delivering a couple of new features which have been requested by several customers. In this blog post I would like to highlight 3 of them. All the other ones are listed in the table below and more details can be found on the SAP Help Portal for SAP Landscape Management.
*** Update on 11/30/2020: Please make sure that you updated to SAP NetWeaver AS for Java SPS17 or later. ***
Once you have updated to SP17, you’re able to retrieve and even change ABAP profile parameters just with a click out of LaMa. You can do the change on a single system, but also on multiple systems at the same time. This will immensely reduce your work especially for the change as you don’t have to log in to several systems and do it manually.
Another feature I would like to highlight is related to the SAP Host Agent. You can do an upgrade of the SAP Host Agent on one host or multiple hosts directly via LaMa without switching to the command line of the operating system of the hosts. This really helps to simplify and accelerate the entire upgrade process.
The last feature I would like to mention is the SAP Kernel Update. Besides the possibility to view the current Kernel release, you can now perform an update on a single system as well as on multiple systems. The old kernel is backed up and can be restored if there’s an error.
We’re very proud that we could release these new features and improvements to you and look forward to delivering even more innovations in 2021 and beyond. We encourage you to get in touch with us if you have ideas how we can support you even further with SAP Landscape Management.
As already stated, please find the feature list of LaMa 3.0 SP17 and additional info below.
