Monitoring SAP Initial Consistency Check

The purpose of this consistency check is to determine inconsistencies in your system.

When logging on to the system for the first time after finishing the SAP installation, you need to trigger a consistency check manually. The function is then called automatically whenever you start the system or an application server.

The initial consistency check will determine whether:

  • The release number in an SAP kernel matches the release number stored in the database system
  • The character set specified in the SAP kernel matches the character set specified in the database system
  • Critical structure definitions that are defined in both the data dictionary and the SAP kernel are identical. The structures to be checked include SYST, T100, TSTC, TDCT and TFDIR.

To perform SAP Initial Consistency Check you do the following step.

1. From SAP Menu -> Tools -> Administration -> Administration  -> Installation Check  or go to transaction SM28 or SICK (SAP Initial Consistency Check.


2. There will be message “no errors reported” if there is nothing wrong in your SAP System.
