We are planning to do system upgrade (to EhP. 5) soon. In our all past, we have never directly carried out a SPDD and SPAU transactions to adjust customer modified SAP objects. What we did was to, after the upgrade completed, test each business transactions and fix any problems found or re-transport the prior modifications as necessary.
This time we are going to carry out the SPDD and SPAU transactions for the very first time during the upgrade. Here are my questions:
The question is: before starting our next upgrade, what should we do with these objects? Should they all be “Reset to Original”?
The question is: Why they are different in SPDD/SPAU? TRN displays less modified objects than PRD system, does it mean that PRD system will have more objects to adjust during upgrade than TRN system?
The question is: Do authorization objects or SAP enhancements adjustment also included in SPDD/SPAU? What issues are not included in SPDD/SPAU and these issue must be resolved through user testing after upgrade?
You can reset the old objects to original during the SPDD/SPAU phases. These objects may no longer be modified in the system.
Go through the links below.
It may be so that PRD has more objects modified than TRN.
Always perform SPAU/SPDD in 1 system and move the adjustments using a transport request.
Any upgrade/EHP upgrade may include new authorization objects and enhancement adjustments.
