About global setting
Before I adjusted spdd modification, I log on ecc60
with Client 000, user: DDIC , use tr-code: se03 to change the global setting , I changed all namespace to modifiable.
now, I have finished spdd modification work, my question is : should I reset those namespace back to old(default) status???if the answer is : Yes. when should I do the resetting job?
please give me some idears.

maybe its the best i explain what upgrades i've done and how the settings in the systems were:
First i made a copy of our productive system (ECC 5.0) and made the upgrade in the Copy (to ERP 6.0). In the shadow instance i set all (global, software and namespace settings) to modifiable/restricted modifiable. This does not affect the real system and the upgrade sets the settings back after SPDD automatically. For the SPAU i had not to change the settings. Thats maybe because the global setting is modifiable, the software settings are modifiable/restricted modifiable and half of the namespace settings are modifiable and the other are not modifiable.
After that i've done the upgrade in the development system. During that i recorded the SPDD and the SPAU changes each in one change request and marked them for further upgrades.
Now I'm on upgrade of the QA-System where i told the upgrade to use the both transport for SPDD and SPAU. So we save time because of no need to do the adjustement manually again.
The documentation says that for modifying a repository object you have to set the global, the softwarecomponent and the namespace settings to modifiable. For the SPAU i think you can wait wich Objects have to be adjusted and then make the according settings. But i'm quite sure the the global settings must be set to modifiable.
Maybe this helps a bit.
