as you know sidadm is the UNIX/ LINUX user to do the admin of SAP ABAP server for example.

But in my team we are a lot of SAP ADMIN and we want to create a user for each of them as a clone of sidadm so having the same rights.

Does anybody cope with this ? is there a WIKI or a BLOG ?

Thanks a lot.

Cloning the user would not be the correct approach.

What can be done is to add / edit the profile parameters "service/admin_users" or "service/admin_groups", including a list of users or groups (respectively) that are authorized to administer the SAP system.

You can read the SAP Note 927637 for more details (S-user required).

You can also read the documentation of those parameters through the transaction RZ11.

After maintaining the parameter, restart the sapstartsrv process with "sapcontrol -nr XX -function RestartService" (XX = the instance number).

Best regards,
