System copy with active CUA
We have our CUA landscape as follows:
Central System is Solution Manager 4.0 (SM2)
Child Systems are ECC 6.0 systems DV2, QA2, and SBX
Central System is Solution Manager 4.0 (SM1)
Child Systems are ECC 6.0 systems DV1, QA1, PD1 (Production).
Other systems in our landscape which are <b>not</b> connected to CUA:
ECC 6.0 systems UPG and TS1.
We are about to perform a system copy from our production system (PD1)
to TS1 (not in CUA) and DV2 (child system of different CUA).
My Questions are:
1. What are the pre and post steps to be performed for the system copy?
2. For the copy from PD1 to DV2, after the system copy, DV2 would be pointing
to the wrong CUA parent system. How can we avoid (handle) this?
3. How should we handle the User Master Records during the copy?
4. Does SAP suggest any particular method for doing the system copies with active CUA ?
The concern is we do not want to disconnect our production system (PD1) from CUA
during this process. (Though we can do it for any other system)
Please comment on this.
