SAP SYSTEM COPY - A BEFORE AND AFTER GUIDE
SAP system/instance move
For some time now, SAP customers have been supported in system copying by very powerful automation tools that can be used as needed. In addition to this area of activity, additional automation tools are also available, for example up to the creation of sandboxes, which provide valuable services.
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.

Partial copies from SAP systems with the help of tools open up potential savings and in many cases make system copies and complete client copies superfluous.

In addition, up-to-date, consistent test data improves the flexibility and quality of development and test environments. Users save money through reduced resource requirements.

If necessary, the system is copied incrementally, table by table, on weekends and at night. Complete shutdown of the production system is best avoided altogether.
