SU25 after an SAP upgrade to EHP5

We have recently upgraded from SAP ECC 6.0 to ECC 6.0 EHP5.

We are in the phase of SPAU. In that our Basis Administrator told us to perform SU25 for authorizations update.

I have gone through the documentation abt SU25 in the SAP help portals, but have not yet clearly understood it.

Can you please help me answer some queries.

1. Since we were previously using PFCG, we have to skip Step 1 (Initial Filling of Customer Tables) and directly execute Step 2a ??

2. After executing Step 2a, will the new default values deliverd by SAP be copied into the customer tables (USOBT_C & USOBX_C)  or will it only compare the SAP delivered & customer tables and not overwrite the customer tables???

3. After the Step 2a to 2c is over, do we have to execute Step 1 (Initial Filling of Customer Tables)??

4. After the customer tables are populated with the new check indicators, do we have to manually go in to each and every role & add the additional checks or will they be automatically reflected in the roles & one has to just maintain values for them??

5. Once we copy the customer tables with the new SAP delivered values, is it possible to revert back to original values???

6. Is this the correct procedure to be followed for post processing?

I am doing it for the first time, so asking in details to avoid any mistakes.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Sagar

    Hi Sagar,

    You are right, Step 1 is only for newly installed systems where PFCG has not been used. You can start with step 2a in your case.

    2. After executing Step 2a, will the new default values deliverd by SAP be copied into the customer tables (USOBT_C & USOBX_C)  or will it only compare the SAP delivered & customer tables and not overwrite the customer tables???

    No. Step 2a only updates the SAP delivered tables USOBT and USOBX with the new objects and values of the upgraded version.

    For any customization done to SAP default check indicator status/ values, i.e values stored in profile generator tables USOBT_C and USOBX_C, SAP gives you an option to either adopt the new suggested value or continue with the old check indicator status & values after doing a comparison. This happens when you run Step 2b.

    3. After the Step 2a to 2c is over, do we have to execute Step 1 (Initial Filling of Customer Tables)??

    No. It is only executed one time via DDIC when a system is newly installed or you are upgrading from a pre-3.1h SAP system where PFCG wasn't used.

    4. After the customer tables are populated with the new check indicators, do we have to manually go in to each and every role & add the additional checks or will they be automatically reflected in the roles & one has to just maintain values for them??

    Newly added/changed check indicator status/values for all SAP delivered transaction (added in PFCG role menu) are adjusted in the role & profile generated during Step 2c.

    5. Once we copy the customer tables with the new SAP delivered values, is it possible to revert back to original values???

    You will have to do it manually via SU24 or restore the system backup from a previous date which should be prior to running SU25 Step 2b.

    6. Is this the correct procedure to be followed for post processing?

    You will not have to revert the customer table updates if you perform Step 2b judiciously. Goodluck!

    Hope this helps. Should you have any questions, please do let me know.

    Thanks

      Hi Sagar,

      For your first question, I would recommend you to go thru' this thread where your question has been answered.

      For the second, Step 6 won't be required unless you are migrating from a 3.1F or earlier SAP release. Starting release 3.1G, manual profiles have been replaced by PFCG role.

      P.S: Sorry for the typo in my earlier post!

      3. After the Step 2a to 2c is over, do we have to execute Step 1 (Initial Filling of Customer Tables)??

      No. It is only executed one time via DDIC when a system is newly installed or you are upgrading from a pre-3.1h pre-3.1G SAP system where PFCG wasn't used.

      Thanks
