IP11 what is impact if we change strategy?

Hi experts,

What is the impact to be aware of if we change a time based maintenance strategy by deleting and/or creating new package? is it safe to do so?

Do all plans with this strategy need to be rescheduled?

Thanks

    Hi Jeff,

    Adding a Package to Maintenance Strategy, no issues, since it will not added to any of the Task list, which in turn no plans will hold the package.

    Deleting a package in Maintenance Strategy, will subsequently remove the package from the maintenance plans, the calls which are already generated will create the order with the deleted package, you need to re-schedule only those plans to skip the already created calls, so plans can generate with the new set of packages.

    Regards

    • Yes Jeff, True, At the Table level, the system will be assigned with deleted package.

      That is the reason, we need to re-schedule the plan by skipping the scheduled Hold calls, so this impact should not occur.

      Also I have noticed one error, as the deleted packages are still exist even after scheduling, this is a bug, there is a OSS note available. (This is for additional care)

    Hi Jeff,

    You may refer to the following OSS notes.

    Rescheduling of Maintenance Plans After Changing Maintenance Strategy – SAP Note 1554835, 1553174 and 1553173.

    This may be helpful.
