Parameters for the tp Function PUT

·        lockuser

Default: 1

Value range: Boolean

During a tp put call, various users can log on to the SAP System at three different points. If the parameter lockuser is set to 0, nothing happens at these points. Otherwise, an indicator is set in the database at the beginning and in the middle of a tp put call, which only permits the users DDIC and SAP* to log on to the SAP System. Users that have already logged on are not affected (this would be the only reason for activating the parameters startsap and stopsap). The indicator is deleted at the end of the call, allowing all users to log on to the SAP System again. To find out the exact locking and unlocking locations, enter the command tp put without any arguments.

·        lock_eu

Default: 1

Value range: Boolean

When tp put is called, the system change option may be changed at two locations. If the parameter lock_eu is set to 0, the system change option remains unchanged. Otherwise, the system change option is set to Objects cannot be changed at the beginning of the call, and is reset to its previous value at the end of the call. To find out the exact locking and unlocking locations, enter the command tp put without any arguments.

·        startsap

Default: Space (Windows)

Possible values: Text

tp uses the value of this parameter to start an SAP System. It interprets the value as a complete path specification for a program that is able to start an SAP System. For the customer, however, it is not necessary for tp to start (or stop) an SAP System. Therefore, SAP has defined the default value of the parameter so that the SAP System is not started at the customer.

·        stopsap

Default: Space (Windows)

Possible values: Text

tp uses the value of this parameter to stop an SAP System. It interprets the value as a complete path specification for a program that is able to stop an SAP System. However, it is not necessary for tp to stop an SAP System at the customer. Therefore, SAP has defined the default value of the parameter so that the SAP System is not stopped at the customer site.

If you want to activate the parameters startsap and stopsap, set them as follows:

·        UNIX

STARTSAP = startsap R3

STOPSAP = stopsap R3

·        Windows

STARTSAP = \\$(SAPGLOBALHOST)\sapmnt\$(system)\sys\exe\run\startsap.exe
name=<SID> nr=<SYSTEMNR>
SAPDIAHOST=<HOST>

STOPSAP = \\$(SAPGLOBALHOST)\sapmnt\$(system)\sys\exe\run\stopsap.exe
name=<SID> nr=<SYSTEMNR>
SAPDIAHOST=<HOST>
