Hello,

We have just had SAP installed, by a third-party, and we have two batch jobs that automatically cancel every night :

SAP_REORG_UPDATERECORDS
SAP_WP_CACHE_RELOAD_FULL

They seem to run for no more than 30 seconds and then cancel. I've checked SAP Notes, done various Google searches and tried many SAP help sites but have been unable to find anything relative to these batch jobs.


Thanks for any help you can offer,

Mark.

PS. I set new jobs up, for the above batch jobs, to run at earlier times but these cancelled as well.

Is there anything in the job logs ?

We don't have those jobs so i can't find out what they do.
What are the programs that they run ?

Are these jobs trying to lock a table to allow background processing? Remember if SAP needs to lock a table and the table is in use it cannot lock it and will cancx the job.

Also look at the warnings below


SAP_REORG_UPDATERECORDS
Deletes old completed update records (automatic delete deactivated); deletes incomplete update records (automatic delete deactivated)



Run this job ONLY if:

·      You have deactivated the default automatic deletion of update records once they have been processed. This function is controlled by the system profile parameter rdisp/vb_delete_after_execution

·     You have deactivated the default automatic deletion of incomplete update records (records that are partially created when an update header is created and saved but the generating transaction then ends abnormally). This function is controlled by system profile parameter rdisp/vbreorg

·     You have deactivated processing of V2 update components after the processing of the associated V1 updates. This function is controlled by system profile parameter rdisp/vb_v2_start.

Hi,

regarding the job SAP_WP_CACHE_RELOAD_FULL:

The job SAP_WP_CACHE_RELOAD_FULL is normally used to update data from the workplace component system to the workplace server.
This job can only be run on a workplace server, otherwise it will terminate. In the future, this job will no longer be delivered as a standard job.
If this job has been scheduled for your system, but you do not need it, delete the scheduled job in transaction sm37.

Regards,
Bert.
