As part of ActiveControl 9.00 (August 2022) release, the way in which Basis Technologies deploy ActiveControl changes significantly.
Prior to 9.00, the same “Server” transport was typically deployed into all of a customer’s SAP ystems – ie the Domain Controller and all Satellite systems. This was a little bit inefficient, as the reality has always been that the majority of ActiveControl functionality exists in the Domain Controller, with a small subset of this in the Development Satellite systems, and an even smaller subset in the non-Development Satellites.
As a result, ActiveControl Upgrades and the deployments of Cumulative Patches could sometimes become more time-consuming and onerous to deploy for our customers than was really required. In addition, customer systems often ended up with more ActiveControl /BTI/ objects in their managed satellite systems than was really required.
