Archive(Sara) another content repository

Archive - SARA

I have already done archive runs for e.g. archvie object FI_DOCUMNT.

Write - Store - Delete.

Now I want to change to content repository ( external archive system ).

I know that I can retrieve stored files back into the exchange file-system.

But it's possbible to store again into another content repository  ( transaction OAC0 ).

I tried the retrieve, but for SARA it's alway's a complete session.

Of course, there must be updates in table ADMI_FILES.

    Hi Reinhard,

    What I can understand is that you want to change the content repository and want to store/archive at this new CR.

    Now at this point:

    1. If you want to store the data, that you already stored in the old repository, you can, provided if you have not run the DELETE jobs, because the delete jobs must have deleted the data from the DB. Now here you can retrive the data back to the database by using the old repository. Then, you change the CR and store it back again with the new CR.

    2. If you have not done the DELETE, then life's simpler. Invalidate (or make it to be archived) the incomplete sessions under the MANAGEMENT tab under SARA. Re-run the WRITE jobs.

    NOTE: In all the cases, you need to make sure that the CRs are maintained properly. Not only with OAC0, but in SARA as well. It is maintained in SARA-->Customizing-->Under Archiving Object specific customizing click on Technical Settings and maintain it there.

    Hello Avishek,

    thanks for quick answer.

    I have already a complete archive run ( deletion as well ).

    Have retrieved the data file.

    Now, after change of customizing settings I want to re-store into another content repository.

    If this possible.

    There is no SAP standard functionality to reload data back into database for


    Regards, Reinhard
