Automate SAP system copies
The target system
Strategy as of NetWeaver 2007: Prerequisite: in the case of a Unicode conversion, conversion must be performed during export. If the target database can be built with unsorted unloaded data, all packages are automatically unloaded unsorted. R3load ensures that tables that must always be unloaded sorted are unloaded sorted.
Installing the Connector for LaMa enables a Cloud Manager feature for Google Cloud in SAP Landscape Management. This guide does not provide instructions for installing, configuring, or operating SAP Landscape Management. For information on installing and configuring SAP Landscape Management, see the latest SAP documentation on the SAP Help Portal.

This is why companies need professional test data management
This means that the time required to create an SAP system copy - be it for providing a system copy for training purposes, be it for testing purposes or whatever - is drastically minimized. Instead of several days, only hours are required for system copying.
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
When executing a system copy, all tables, processes, databases, etc. are taken into account when copying. Logical system names must also be converted (using the BDLS trasaction code). The process of a system copy usually does not change. If no structural changes have been made to the SAP systems involved, the process is even 100% identical. Due to the very high repeatability of the nevertheless complex process, it is advisable to automate it to a large extent.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems", a mature and yet very cost-effective product is available that offers useful functions for system copies. For example, SAP system users can be backed up and restored. Likewise, system-specific tables can be backed up before the system copy and restored after the system copy. And all this can also be automated.
In addition to the regular SAP infrastructure, the system copy solution requires a central management server for updates, on which the following software is installed: - HP System Copy - UC4 Automation Engine - UC4 Template libraries for UC4 Automated System Copy and HP System Copy The central management server, which can be a physical or virtual server, must be running Microsoft® Windows® Server 2003/2008.
Scenario: We assume that a new training system will be created from the productive system.
