How to do remote client copy ( SCC8 ) & How to do client transport( SCC9 )

Hope the below information helps.
HOW to do remote client copy ( SCC8 )
1. create the new client in the target system via tcode SCC4
2. log on to the traget client of the traget system with the user SAP* and password PASS
3. for the planned copy run, you must define the RFC connection between the R3 systems as the source client, if this has not already been
4. you should also protect the source client of the source system against changes during the copy. To do this, log on to the source system and
lock the source client : In scc4 (
change mode ), choose the option ” Currently locked Due to client Copy ”
5. you can start the copy in the target system. Execute tcode SCC9
6. using the profile, choose the data to be copied
7. choose the RFC connection. The source system and client are chosen automatically for the RFC connection
8. before the actual copy, test the RFC connection using the RFC system check. In addition to testing the connection, the R3 system releases
are checked.
9. start the copy in background ( in test mode )
10. check the status of the copy procedure from the target system. You can do this at any time by choosing Client Administration..tcode SCC3
11. start the copy in background ( in final mode )
12. check the status of the copy procedure…SCC3
NOTE : with a remote client copy, only the table data is moved, not the table definitions. If user-specific, client-dependent tables were created in
the source client, they are not automatically copied to the target client, and an error may be caused. It is the responsibility of the user to create
the necessary tables in the target client manually via SE11.
HOW to do client transport : ( SCC9 )
prerequisites : the source and target system must have the same R3 release. The R3 system can not checked the R3 release since there is no
connection between the
systems established.
1. create the target client in the target system via tcode SCC4
2. log on the source client in the source system with a user with transport authorization ( Not SAP* or DDIC )
3. using the client maintenance tool ( SCC4 ), lock the source client against changes
4. go to the client transport menu by choosing Tools > Administration > Administration > Client Transport > Client Export or transaction SCC9.
When you confirm your
selection, you are notified of which transport requests were created for this task.
KO – Client-independent
KT – client-dependent
KX – texts
5. check the logs created for the copy run via SCC3
To import the transports created into another R3 system :
1. copy the required files to the corresponding subdirectory of the local transport directory of the target system
2. on the operating system level, from the subdirectory bin of the local transport directory of the target system, execute the commands :
tp addtobuffer <request> <target system> client=<client>
tp import <request> <target system> client=<client>
3. the remaining file with the text elements requires different procedure. Log on to the target client of the target system and access the client
administration tool by selecting
Tools > Administration > Client Administration > Client Admin. Choose client Transport > Post-process Import. Select the request
<SID>KT<number of the request> and
execute it online or in background. This procedure copies and generates the client-dependent text elements.

Client Copy from PRD server to QA server through Export – Import

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.
