Friends:

When running SAP_BW_COPY_INITIAL_PREPARE and SAP_BW_BASIS_COPY_REFRESH_CONFIG, both will stop at a point to wait for the database export to be done, then continue.

Per my experience, the DB export that SAP_BW_COPY_INITIAL_PREPARE is waiting for is an entire original DB export using SWPM. While the DB export that SAP_BW_BASIS_COPY_REFRESH_CONFIG is waiting for is a target client export using tcode SCC8 with the profile for user master and configuration data.

Task list

What is it waiting for

Method

SAP_BW_COPY_INITIAL_PREPARE

Export entire original DB

SWPM->export

SAP_BW_BASIS_COPY_REFRESH_CONFIG

Could any friend confirm this? Thanks!
