Hi Experts,

I have here a situation wherein a background job is currently active and that specific background job is not present in sm66 transaction.

Could you tell me how that happen? And to what specific workprocess does the background job runs?

    - start SM37

    - select the job

    - use the menu to "Job - Check Status"

    This may happen when the system crashed or is shut down when the job is running.

      System will check if the apparently running job is really there or if it is a ghost (job is not running anymore, work process died or whatever) and will correct the display in SM37 if necessary.

      Might take a view minutes/couple tries.

    Hi,

    I recommend to use

    a) the Job Status analysis in CCMS (http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/EN/c4/3a8090505211d189550000e829fbbd/frameset.htm) or

    b) he Background Job analysis of transaction ST13 (requires Add-On ST-A/PI)

    Kind regards,

    Martin
