Scope of the SAP system copy
On the other hand, such a tool must ensure that traceability or transparency is always available. What happens in the smallest detail during an SAP system copy creation must be visible in whatever form in order to be able to track down possible errors, but also, for example, to optimize the actual copying process or to accelerate it even further, for example by using log files and more.
The database import can be performed using various tools. Sapinstaller provides a working way to import the database cleanly.
SAP system deployment scenarios
With TM-TMS, an SAP add-on is offered that largely automates manual user interventions during a system copy and thus relieves the developers/customizing users. Cross-user developments are processed in one package, ensuring consistency. The entire process consists of three areas.
The freeware Scribble Papers puts an end to the confusing paper chaos. The tool is also suitable for storing, structuring and quickly finding text documents and text snippets of all kinds in addition to notes.
Unicode conversion: During the copy, the system is converted from non-Unicode to Unicode. This happens in the context of a homogeneous or heterogeneous system copy. In connection with Unicode must be differentiated between the system copy of a Unicode system and the Unicode conversion.
Powerful and sophisticated automation tools for the creation of SAP system copies provide a remedy here and, in addition to time and cost savings, demonstrably also make it possible, for example, to increase the process quality in system copying or to maintain it at a consistently high level. In effect, they free up SAP Basis. With "Shortcut for SAP Systems", you can sustainably relieve your administrators of the time-consuming routine activities of an SAP system copy.
Complete shutdown of the production system is best avoided altogether.
