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.
What is it waiting for
Export entire original DB
Export target client’s user and configuration data
Could any friend confirm this? Thanks!
