Client Copy from System Copy

Hello all,

We have a three system landscape, plus a Sandbox system (ECC6 ABAP on Windows 2003 and MS SQL Server 2005).

I would like to optimize the process of refreshing the clients in our DEV, QA and Sandbox systems. Below is how we currently refresh the clients; followed by a proposed method. Please advise if the proposed method is appropriate.

Current Process:

============

1) Local client copy of the production client, in the PROD system (i.e. copy 300 -> 310).

2) Remote client copy of 310 to 200 (QA).

3) Remote client copy of 310 to 100 (DEV).

4) Local client copy of 200 to additional QA clients (i.e. 210), if required.

5) Local client copy of 100 to additional DEV clients (i.e. 110, 120), if required.

6) Remote client copy of 310 to Sandbox client.

7) Delete client 310 from the PROD system.

NOTE: The above process requires production down-time.

Proposed Process:

==============

1) Use a Production database backup to restore the Sandbox system (i.e. refresh the sandbox via system copy).

2) Remote client copy of sandbox client (300) to 200 (QA).

3) Remote client copy of sandbox client (300) to 100 (DEV).

4) Local client copy of 200 to additional QA clients (i.e. 210), if required.

5) Local client copy of 100 to additional DEV clients (i.e. 110, 120), if required.

NOTE: This proposed process doesnu2019t require production down-time, or the creation and deletion of a client on the Prod system. Also, we are a small shop so our landscape is frozen during the above processing.

Does the proposed process provide for a stable landscape? That is, will it cause any issues?

Thank you for your help.

Hello Allan,

On your proposed Solution most of the activity are Remote client copy to update your development and quality system update. Its depends on your database size. If your databsase is big then it will take a long time and during this activity your production system will be little slow due to read of tables. So personally i prefer the production database backup to restore the sanbox.

we have tested this and it works fine.

But if your database size is low or medium then u can perform the remote client copy or client export import.
