Client Copy in BI 7.0 and ERP 6.0


I have done a system copy of both the BI system and it's source ERP system and am following the post copy steps to ensure that the connectivity between the two is maintained. However before I run BDLS to change the logical system names I would like to change the client numbers on both the BW and ERP client. Does anyone know what the implications of doing a client copy in both systems is and then running BDLS for these logical system names? Has anyone tried this and was it successful? Can you do a successful client copy of BI?

Points awarded.
