LSMW cant run in background?

When running an LSMW migration for transaction PO13 to connect positions to role, I can not get it to work when running in background. I get the same error message for every post it tries to run.

RAISE_EXCEPTION

Exception condition "CNTL_SYSTEM_ERROR" raised.

A Raise statement in the program "CL_GUI_SPLITTER_CONTAINER=====CP" raised the exception.

But when running the LSMW in the foreground or "show only errors" it works perfectly fine. Except for that it is running very slow.

Is there any solution for this to be able to run it in the background? Since the time gain of run time is very important.

    What about experience with LSMW keep running slower as time goes. Is there a way to avoid this except for running shorter files?

    When I start my PO13 LSMW it runs 1 post per second, after 30 min or approximately 2000 post it goes with the speed of 1 post per 15 seconds?

      SAP may be calling function modules repeatedly that do not clear memory. This can cause more reads of the same data as processing continues. There are probably lots more reasons.

      Unfortunately, these are things you have no control over and that SAP would not be likely willing to fix.

      As mentioned in the note, try PP02.

      And make sure that note 357080 also is implemented.

    Ok, thanks for that info.

    However there seem to be a speed issue with my LSMW running in foreground "Show only errors" .

    The LSMW recording I use is an older version that has been used before to migrate roles to positions. I checked the Logs and at that time it was 5 times as faster then my test runs.

    I have also done new recordings but can not come up to the same speed as in the logs.

    When I run it does 1 post connection between roles and positions every 2-3 seconds. Before it did 3 posts per second.

    Does anybody have any experience running lsmw:s on PO13?

    Thanks, I did like the suggestion and created a recording on PP02. It works great and is possible to run in background as it says in the SAP Note.

    Cheers!
