Reconnect BW to new R/3

We had an old R/3 Test system (call it DEV) and we recently created a new Test R/3 system (call it TU1) from our Production R/3 system (PU1). Our old R/3 (DEV) system was connected to our Test BW system (TU3).

Is there a way to rename the RFC connection (and source system name) in BW so that DEV becomes TU1?

We would not like to recreate all our infopackages from scratch. We know we will have to reinitialize the cubes with data. We are on 3.0B.

    hi George,

    2. Change OLTP logical system name.

    - Logical system name maintenance in TC SCC4

    - Mapping from old logical name to new one in BDLS

    3. Review RFC Connections in OLTP & BW

    4. Restore settings for new logical systems. This has to be done in

    order to get all communication parameters (partner profiles, ports

    definition, IDOC Type etc.) TC WE30, Consistently set-up versus new LS name.

    Go to Source System in AWB

    - Right click on OLTP source system & restore

    - Right click on BW system & restore

    hope this help

      Qandeel, thank you for your help. For some reason I cannot give you any more points.

      In any event, I am updating this post to let others know what our solution was. We found a document on the SAP Support site on "<b>How to... System Copy in SAP BI System Landscapes</b>". This document was extremely helpful.
