Import of delta statuses after SAP system copy / restore
Shutting Down the Target System
SAP system copies are necessary, regardless of the basic infrastructure. Particularly in the context of automation, preference should be given to solutions that support all relevant types of SAP system operation.
The term "system copy" describes the process of creating a copy of an SAP system on a new server. There are two types to be distinguished: homogeneous and heterogeneous system copy and one can get to the system copy in different ways.
Test and training system: data anomyization, migration of master data, migration of user data / passwords
An alternative to this is a refresh using a client copy. The test environment will then be missing audit documents, among other things, but the development objects will remain untouched. The client copy only works from a running SAP system, but it burdens the system with database queries and transfers data more slowly than a system copy. The affected client is not available during the copy process. Since there are no options within the client to select what all should be copied, the runtime is often unacceptable.
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.
You should also create a delta list for all transports that have not yet reached the production system. Software contained in open transports is lost during the upgrade, which may seem useful for cleaning up the system, but can have dire consequences for development projects. That's why you should take a close look at delta transport lists before proceeding with the upgrade. UC4 Automated System Copy allows you to automate the above steps. If necessary, you can add additional steps without losing testing capabilities.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" provides an automated solution for many of the tasks involved in copying SAP systems by enabling the backup and restore of any table.
The important thing is to think about the target system before building it.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
The typical cloud infrastructures, such as AWS or Azure, are not a hurdle for this service.
