SAP system clone and copy
Re-import backup transports (exports), set up locally in 000 client for isolated systems (sandbox)
Today, thanks to tools for creating SAP system copies, it is possible to create such system duplications practically at the push of a button, and that too in a very short time. Even several at once.
A non-production SAP system should also have the same repository status as the source system, regardless of the data transfer method chosen for the refresh. All the data that makes up an SAP system is stored in the repository. This includes, among other things, the definitions for the database fields and tables for master and transaction data.
Companies with backup systems can use these for a client copy and thus save on the computing power of the productive system. However, the burden of copying falls on the SAN. Because the reliability is limited by the misuse of the backup system and the storage network is additionally burdened, users should keep the runtime of this refresh variant as short as possible.
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.
Also of increasing relevance to companies is the rapid provision of test data or systems in different data centers or in the cloud. A modern test data solution can implement these requirements in a largely automated manner, reducing manual effort, lowering the susceptibility to errors, and saving time and money.
The tool "Shortcut for SAP Systems" is excellently suited to complete an SAP system copy easier and faster.
The steps to be taken before shutting down the target SAP system can be summarized as follows: Well before performing the upgrade, inform the target system users - especially project managers, developers, and testers - about the planned maintenance work via e-mail, SAP system messages, and/or a message at the system logon.
Heterogeneous system copy: As the name suggests, the operating system and/or database on the source and target systems are different.
