Q1. With reference to Work Centres in Solution Manager, which of the following statements are FALSE?
a. Work centers are central work environments that provide access to role-specific functions.
b. You can start the workcenter In the SAP GUI for Windows using transaction SOLMAN_WORKCENTER
c. You can start the workcenter In the Web Browser using the Web Dynpro application AGS_WORKCENTER.
d. You can start the workcenter in the SAP NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC)
Work centers are central work environments that provide access to role-specific functions. The structure of a work center depends on your role. You have access to relevant messages, alerts, reports, and documents for which your role is authorized. The number of work centers assigned to you depends on your tasks.
The role-based work centers of SAP Solution Manager use a common user interface, which has identical basic parts and differs depending on the role and purpose of the work center.
A work center consists of the following basic elements:
Overview of the Structure of a Work Center (when Called in a Web Browser)
You can start all work centers for which you are authorized, as follows:
■In the SAP GUI for Windows using transaction SOLMAN_WORKCENTER
■In a Web browser using the Web Dynpro application AGS_WORKCENTER
Q2. The Landscape Management Database (LMDB) of SAP Solution Manager is the central landscape information repository. With reference to LMDB, which of the following statements are true?
a. The LMDB uses the same standard (the Common Information Model) as the SLD to represent system information.
b. ALL information in the LMBD is provided by synchronization with a System Landscape Directory (SLD)
c. Logical landscape information about product systems is provided to the LMBD by technical systems.
A system landscape description is required by different SAP Solution Manager applications, like Monitoring and Alerting, diagnostics, and for calculations of updates and upgrades with the Maintenance Optimizer.
The Landscape Management Database (LMDB) of SAP Solution Manager is the central landscape information repository. The LMDB uses the same standard (the Common Information Model, CIM) as the SLD to represent system information.
Logical landscape information about product systems must be created manually because this information is not provided by the technical systems and the SLD.
The majority of system information in the LMDB is provided by synchronization with a System Landscape Directory (SLD) in the system landscape, which continuously gathers data sent by the SLD data suppliers, which are installed on the technical systems.
Smaller amounts of information in the LMDB are created manually or provided directly by data suppliers like Outside Discovery.
Q3. In the enhanced Change & Transport System (CTS) within Solution Manager, it is possible to transport Java & ABAP objects together.
The enhanced Change and Transport System enables you to transport Java objects and SAP- related non-ABAP applications in your system landscape, alongside ABAP objects.
You can also administer non-ABAP systems in a CTS transport domain in SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP.
The aim is to have one transport tool that supports all development workbenches and applications with one tool. The tools for creating applications and content remain the same. The different workbenches of the applications offer options to attach your objects to a CTS transport request.
The level of integration depends on the particular workbench.
In this way the enhanced Change and Transport System provides a unified transport tool and makes the work of administrators easier when executing imports.
You only need access to one tool to execute imports for different backend systems. The deployment tools are called automatically. CTS allows you to monitor imports and analyze errors.
The queues and history in CTS give an overview of imports that have already been executed or which are planned.
You can use CTS to transport the following additional objects:
■Java-based and J2EE/JEE-based objects
■Software Component Archives (SCAs)
■Enterprise Application Archives (EARs)
■Software Deployment Archives (SDAs)
■DTR activities (DIPs)
Q4. Which of the following is required when implementing Customer Code Lifecycle Management?
a. Authorization for transaction CCMS
b. At least one solution with logical components and systems.
c. Note assistant should be active
This application is the central point of access for all functions that you use to manage the lifecycle of custom developments (from creation to deletion). The custom developments that you manage with this application are programs, transactions, and other objects.
The application provides an overview of all the custom developments in your systems. You can identify changes and manage your developments more effectively. You can also perform upgrade tests more efficiently by identifying the custom objects that are currently in use.
– You are authorized to use transaction CCLM
-You have created at least one solution with logical components and systems.
– SAP has provided a technical implementation that ensures that the required settings have been configured in your SAP Solution Manager system.
– If you want to use the Analysis and Reports views, a BW system must be integrated and configured accordingly as part of the Customizing project. This function must also be activated (it is not activated by default).
– You have configured EarlyWatch Alert for the systems. The data collectors read the usage statistics from the EarlyWatch Alert download.
Q5. With reference to end-to-end trace analysis, which of the following statements are FALSE?
a. It enables a complete Browser to Disk analysis.
b. Data recorded by the Introscope byte-code morphing agent are transferred directly to the Introscope
c. Dot Net functionality is not currently supported by the Introscope
d. Systems that need to be traced have to be enabled explicitly.
The figure below shows how the Browser to Disk analysis is enabled.
Traffic between client and server
At the client, a client-independent proxy and a client-dependent plug-in are installed which provides unique correlators for scenario, click, and request to the traffic between client and server. Client-side trace data is transferred from client to the managing system via HTTP upload.
Data recorded by the Introscope byte-code morphing agent are transferred directly to the Introscope Tracer database.
An Introscope proprietary protocol is used which can be tunneled via HTTP. The Introscope trace summary is transferred to end-to-end trace analysis via the API. Currently Java and .NET components are covered by Introscope tracing capabilities.
Traffic to retrieve trace summary data
Non-Introscope trace data is written locally in database and file systems. Relevant trace summary data is retrieved by RFC protocol for ABAP-based components and P4/RMI protocol (used by Solution Manager diagnostics agent) for non-ABAP components.
The systems which need to be traced have to be enabled explicitly. The time for automatic disabling the tracing can be set in the ‘Options’ tab.
Q6. With reference to the SLD, which of the following statements are true?
More than one answer may be correct.
a. All system configuration data, which are used in the Solution Manager System, are stored in SLD
b. Information in the SLD can be accessed using transaction SLDY
c. You can connect the local Solution Manager SLD to a central SLD.
To work with the tools of the Solution Manager we need technical information about the connected systems in the Solution Manager System landscape (SMSY).
All system configuration data, which are used in the Solution Manager System, are stored in SLD. Transaction SMSY gets all information on system data from SLD.
To avoid manual maintenance, the Solution Manager uses its local SLD to read systems information like servers, databases, system component levels, application servers, support pack levels etc.
You can connect the local Solution Manager SLD to a central SLD, which is the central information source for the system landscape.
But the Solution Manager should be independent of the central SLD, to be available in the absence of SLD.
Q7. SAP Solution Manager functionality can be extended using adapters for third party applications. Some of these applications are?
More than one answer may be correct.
a. SAP Quality Center by HP
b. SAP Central Process Scheduling by Redwood
c. SAP Extended Diagnostics by CS Wily
a, b, c
The figure below explains ways in which the SolMan functionality may be extended using adapters.
