External Operating System Commands

Postby Outlaw » Mon Oct 21, 2002 3:49 am

I have set up a command in SM69 that calls a shell script.
When I test run my ABAP to call this external command using SXPG_COMMAND_EXECUTE I get a "NO PERMISSION" exception.

The permissions on the shell script have execute for all users.

My question is : Does the external operating system command get executed by R3 Admin even though I am logged onto R/3 myself ?

Dear Outlaw:
I think, the whole shell is executed under <sysid>adm, the R/3 admin user ID. If you write files under UNIX, you see that ID as the owner. To prove this, you could use a 'call system' command from ABAP and issue a 'whoami'.

Hi guys,

if you run RSBDCOS0 from se38 and try "set" command under Windows or "env" under UNIX you can see, that the user name is SAPService{SID} even in the header it is {SID}adm.
The same method used in SM49/SM69.
