clients are missing in scc4 after migration

Hello all,

I migrated an SAP R/3 Enterprise with no error, but I noticed that some clients are missing. Could it be because they were protected for copy? I just allowed them in scc4 and started the export again, to see if the export folder is bigger than the first one. If this does not work, both export folders have the same size, the previous exported folder and the new exported folder, should I try to do a remote client copy in scc9?

Pls advise

Thx

Chris

    Hello,

    Clients which are protected from export will not be copied during upgrade.

    You need to to change the client settings of the clients which were missed out last time and do a export/import again.

    If that was the case you should be able to find a reference for the skipped clients on the logs of the first export but no necessarily lead to an export error, I think.

    In regular circumstances an export should be a plain dump of the DB contents so all clients should be included. Did you try to recreate the clients in SCC4 and see if the data was there?...

    Let us know how does the second export goes.

    Hello

    If I were you I would first query the T000 table from the DB level before doing something.

    select MANDT from SAPSR3.T000;

    Hello all,

    Thx for the help. I did a standart migration (export/import), using sapinst (51043575_13). The source is a Win2003+Oracle9.2. The target is Win2008R2+Mssql2005. I faced no error during migration, just I dont have all the clients after import. Looks like the DB is empty. I will try today a remote client copy with scc9, but I have a doubt it will work.

    Pls advice

    Thx

    Chris

      Hi Chris,

      Please let me know whether you have chosen the below method for setting up target system.

      Software Life-Cycle Options->System Copy<database>Target System<Distribution option: Central System / Distributed System / High-Availability System>Based on <Stack option> AS ABAP and Java / AS Java / AS ABAP>

      Database - Select the Database Instance Installation Method

      Standard System Copy/Migration (load-based):

      When you choose Migration it will asks for the Migration export CD image which you have exported during abap DB export which you have to provide here.

      Thanks and Regards,

    I just noticed that also some packages are missing after import. This means, even if I did not got any error on export, my export was not OK. Could it be because of the installer? I chose 51043575_13 and chose NW 04Sr1>system copy>...

    Pls advice

    Thx

    Chris

    Chris,

    I have MSSQL 2008R2. what the command for mssql

    Don't have experience with MSSQL, so it is difficult to give you the correct format.

    Also try updating all the R3* kernel files and see if that helps.

    Regards

    RB
