2.4 Activate Business Function Set

It is important to activate the Enterprise Business Functions after installing SAP S/4HANA ON-PREMISE, but before creating the client in which the content delivered with the SAP Best Practices for SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition shall be activated.

2.5 Language Installation



  1. 1.   

Before copying customer tables from client 000 to the new client, the import of required languages has to be complete.

For technical reasons, it is required to install the complete scope of released languages for the SAP Best Practices for SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition in order to avoid errors during content activation.

Check the blog for information on how to import a large number of languages efficiently.


  1. 2.   

Run report RSCPINST from Tcode SE38

  1. 3.   

Click on add language

  1. 4.   

Select all the language and Set Filter by right click.

  1. 5.   

Select all and click tick.

  1. 6.   

  Check and Activate

  1. 7.   

Now execute tcode :SMLT

Add all the 38 languages one at a time

2.6 Setting up a New best Practice client

The best-practice client setup is the prerequisite to successfully activate and deploy the SAP Best Practices content. Setting up a new best-practice client requires the configuration content from client 000 and the activation of the SAP Best Practices content depending on the selected business scope. The new client shall only contain the minimum required settings from client 000; all other settings shall be created by activating the SAP Best Practices content and match the business scope.

2.7 Carrying out setup for implementation

This section describes preparatory tasks which need to be carried out in order to use the implementation tools.

  1. Provide users for content activation.
  2. Prevent out of memory dumps

2.8 Preventing out of Memory Dumps

Some activities like the upload of installation data or defining the scope of customer solutions might cause a high memory consumption. Problems can be prevented by setting the memory to 6 GB.

The following options for creating the required clients should be discussed:



  1. 1.
  1. Open the transaction RZ10.
  2. Set the parameter abap/heap_area_dia to 6 GB.
  3. Make sure that the parameter PHYS_MEMSIZE is set correctly.
  4. Restart the server.

This concludes the post installation activities.
