Use report SAP_RSADMIN_MAINTAIN to create a new RSADMIN parameter with the values OBJECT = 'RSDA_ADD_ARCHIVE' and VALUE = 'X'. You can use the new RSADMIN parameter to specify a near-line connection, even though data has already been archived.
Make sure that all archiving requests for the InfoProvider have one of the following statuses:
Deletion Phase Confirmed and Request Completed (Status 70)
Reload Ended Successfully (Status 80)
Request Canceled (Status 99)
You have already archived data from an InfoProvider using ADK-based archiving and now want to connect near-line storage. You can also move the archived data to near-line storage.
- You are in editing mode in the data archiving process. Enter the near-line connection you requre and reactivate the data archiving process.
- Run report RSDA_ADD_ARCHIVE and select the corresponding data archiving process.
- By choosing
Parallel Processing, you can configure the maximum number of background processes and the job class. This setting applies for all copy processes independently of the data archiving process.
- By choosing
Selection, you can limit the number per data archiving process of archiving requests to be be copied using the DAP time slice characteristic. If you do not make a selection, all data in the ADK archive is copied to near-line storage. You can also run the copy process in simulation mode to start with.
- Once you have activated near-line storage for all required InfoProviders and synchronized them with the data in the ADK, use report SAP_RSADMIN_MAINTAIN to reset RSADMIN parameter RSDA_ADD_ARCHIVE to VALUE = ' '. This prevents the
Near-line Connection field in the data archiving process from being modifiable. It also means that report RSDA_ADD_ARCHIVE cannot be run anymore.
