Hi…Today I am going to view about Client Copy using Client Export and Client Import procedure. It’s easy and safe way than direct client copy.

Client Export:
1. Run SCC8
2. Select Profile for desired copy type (Usually All SAP_ALL or user master only SAP_USER. You will need direction from the requester as to the correct selection here. Use Profile -> Display Profile to display profile details.)
3. Select target System (or group)
4. De- Select “Test Run” (If selected)
5. Run Export
– Up to 3 requests are created, depending on the data selected and available:
1. “SIDKO00353” for transporting client-independent data, if you have selected this
2. “SIDKT00353” for transporting client-specific data
3. “SIDKX00353” for transporting client-specific texts, provided texts are available in this client
6.Monitor TP logs for errors and export files for growth
Client Import:
1. Create client (scc4)
2. Login to client (sap* – pass)
3. Manually add “O” transport then “X” then “T” to TMS buffer
4. Highlight #1 and use “Request -> Import” to launch import tool
5. Monitor “I” file in OS “/usr/sap/trans/tmp” dir for progress info
6. After Import is complete perform “post processing steps” from client tool (SCC7)

So if you have 3 transport requests and the data has been exported successfully then go for an import in quality system

I hope this could help to refresh QA server with PRD server data and settings.

    Dear Ardhian,
    About client copy from PRD to QAS through export-import, is possible to do it in office hour (while all users are still active) and do I have to lock them first? Right now I have 164 GBs of data in the database, how long does it take. I use SUSE Ent v10 as the OS, what command should I use to increase the FS just in case the space is not enough.
    Thank you for your help.

    @Ananto Nugroho :

    You need un-peak hour to do client copy since this process would take most of your server resource.
    I didn’t know how long it going to take time since it depend on your server hardware specification and your SAP config.
    If you are using LVM and using ext3 or reiserfs than this would be simple step.

    using reiserfs :
    #lvextend -L +size /dev/volume_group/logical_volume
    #resize_reiserfs -L +size /dev/volume_group/logical_volume

    using ext2/ext3
    #lvextend -L +size /dev/volume_group/logical_volume
    #resize2fs /dev/volume_group/logical_volume

    Just make sure you would contact your OS and hardware vendor before resizing of fs.

  3. Hi Ardhian,

    Is there a way of having only the Master data to be overwritten on QAS client without affecting the transports present in QAS?

    Thanks for your help.

      Hi Ratha,

      AS of 3.5 release you dont need to add the O, X and T files manually. just select one of them, select import. The other Transports are automatically added into the buffer and are imported in the order.

      To monitor the progress , go to transaction AL11, double click on DIR_TRANS which points to trans folder, double click on tmp file, sort the last changed column in descending order, you should find a file Innnnn. (where SID = SID of source system and SID2 = SID of target system )that is being updated.

      Please let me know if you still need help
