SAP Jobs at Auckland Council

Things are pretty frantic at Auckland Council. Since we merged all the local councils of Auckland together in November last year we have been struggling to keep up. Now we're finally doing some recruitment.

The first position we're looking to fill is in our logistics area.  This role is focussed on the support and development of our purchasing solution (using SRM PPS (Procurement for Public Sector) and MM).  Ideally you'll have several years supporting and developing an SAP Purchasing solution with SRM as part of it.

Next up is a position to fill a gap created by a project that's already in flight.  We're doing a massive consolidation of our asset maintenance functions using SAP Plant Maintenance and Real Estate.  So we're looking for someone with these skill sets to step onto the project and then transition it through to support and ongoing improvement.

Finally, we're looking for someone to bolster the ranks across the board.  Someone who is happy to "float" between various modules.  The work will range from purchasing to finance to HR and even include elements of workflow, performance management and workload management (queue monitoring) for the team.  The key to securing this role will be proving a depth and breadth of SAP experience and a willingness to be flexible and agile in supporting the rest of the team.

R/3 and AS/400: Changing Administrator Passwords

Ready-to-Run R/3 comes with predefined administrators and other users, at the network domain level, locally on the servers, and within the and R/3 Systems. All these users are delivered with standard passwords.

To make sure that the security of your system is secure, you have to change all the standard passwords as soon as you have finished setting up your R/3 Systems. Thereafter, you should change them at monthly intervals, with the exception of R/3 service accounts and R/3 internal users. You should not change the passwords of these users.

The following tables show the predefined users and their passwords.
