We have a non-SAP system (that is not being retired) where pre-production material numbers are generated for opportunity work.
(They are not initially ECC)
We are migrating our current opportunity system into CRM, and approach is the non-SAP system will start to send the pre-production materials into CRM (as products). To support opportunity creation.
However, when the materials do go into production, we then will set up the material numbers in ECC to support quotes/orders.
The material numer will be the same as when it was just pre-production status.
However, we are concerned with middleware replication...
What happens if we directly create a product in CRM, and then xx months later create the same product in ECC.
what happens when that material number tries to replicate to CRM and the number already exists?
