Automation tool reduces time required to create test environments
Import of delta statuses after SAP system copy / restore
The suite idea has established itself here as well as in many other software areas. And for good reasons. In addition, such automation tools are moving even more strongly in the direction of the IT topic of system management.
An SAP system copy is a process in which an exact copy of an existing SAP system is created. This copy can be used to run tests, perform development, or back up the system.
The database import can be performed using various tools. Sapinstaller provides a working way to import the database cleanly.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
For a heterogeneous system copy and for homogeneous system copies for which there is no special way for the database used, the source system must be exported. This is done with SAP tools (SUM). The export files are copied to the prepared target system and imported again during the SAP installation with SUM. A relatively comfortable way. But it can be even more comfortable.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" you get additional functions for the SAP system copy.
The source of the system copy is a production system.
