Activation of bc-set SALM_TESTSUITE_SP05-SP06 while implementing note 2910105

Introduction:

 

After support package upgrade to SP11 in SAP SOLMAN 7.2, while Focused Build set-up in Solution Manager, then we need to implement a mandatory collective note for Focused Build 2910105 – Focused Build: Technical collective note for ST-OST 200 SP06, as the part of the guided procedure given by SAP in SOLMAN_SETUP.

The manual activity of the collective note 2910105 says to download and activate bc-set SALM_TESTSUITE_SP05-SP06, but till SP11 you will not find this bc-set in your system.

 

The manual activity mentioned in note as below:

 

The bc-set SALM_TESTSUITE_SP05-SP06 is not present in system (t-code:SCPR3):

 

So, the question is what should we do at this point of time?

Because as mentioned in the collective note 2910105, the manual activity is mandatory but the bc-set mentioned in the manual activity of the note is not present in the system.

 

So I have tried to share my experience on how to do the needful at this point of time and what are the challenges one will face while doing so.

 

Solution:

In place of bc-set SALM_TESTSUITE_SP05-SP06, you can activate bc-set /SALM/TESTSUITE in your solution manager system. Both bc-set works the same and served the purpose.

 

Steps to download and activate the bc-set /SALM/TESTSUITE:

  • Run T-CODE: SCPR3 and click as indicated below and select “All BC Sets”:

  • Scroll or search to the bc-set /SALM/TESTSUITE and double click it to download.
  • Go to T-Code SCPR20 to activate it. But at the time of activation, you may face below error:

 

 

How to Remove the below error while activating bc-set /SALM/TESTUITE:

 

1. Start transaction SCPR20

2. Navigate over the menu Utilities -> User *

3. Navigate to tab General Settings

4. Tick Use User *

5. Untick German

6. Press icon Copy Settings (Enter)

7. Enter BC Set /SALM/TESTSUITE

8. Activate the BC Set with icon Activate BC Set (F7)

9. Start transaction SCPR20 again

10. Navigate over the menu Utilities -> User *

11. Navigate to tab General Settings

12. Untick Use User *

13. Press icon Copy Settings (Enter)

 

Conclusion:

For set-up of Focused Build in Solution Manager system in SP11, the implementation of collective note 2910105 – Focused Build: Technical collective note for ST-OST 200 SP06 is mandatory and so is the manual activity as mentioned in this note.

But when we are not able to find the bc-set as mentioned in the note(SALM_TESTSUITE_SP05-SP06), we can implement bc-set /SALM/TESTUITE , but even at the time of activating this bc-set we may face error as mentioned above.

So in this case, I have tried to demonstrate how to deal with these two challenges:

  1. Which bc-set is the substitute of bc-set SALM_TESTSUITE_SP05-SP06?
  2. How to activate the bc-set /SALM/TESTUITE successfully?

 

I hope this blog post will help people who are implementing focused build in their landscape.

 

Thank you.
