    You should follow this approach:

    1. Move all SLD content from the old to the new SLD by a full-sync

    2. Change all RZ70 and SLDAPICUST settings of all systems connected to the old SLD to the new SLD

    3. Change the SLD client and SLD data supplier connection on PI to the new SLD

    4. Deativate the old SLD or create a snyc from the new SLD to the old SLD to keep this updated if required.

    Best Regards

      1. Correct. If you only want to move a subset of objects, then you need to do this manually not via sync.

      As soon as you have changed all data supplier settings of connected systems to the new SLD the technical systems should be updates accordingly.

      2. Ok, then just deactivate or leave the old SLD as it is.

      Best Regards

    You need to do settings in SLD datasupplier also, which you have missed in your points.

    Thanks and Regards,

    You also need to cleanup your local PI SLD, just in case it was used at some point in the past. Importing SLD will add/overwrite information, but will not delete the old information if the source doesn't have them. If you don't, you may end up with unnecessary and possibly conflicting components in your PI domain. Here is a blog on on SLD migration in case you need a quick reference: Migrating SLD Server on SAP XI | SAP NW Newbie

      I have exported successfully from source system (Solman).Then configured a local SLD on target xi system.Also made the levels of SAP_CR and model version in target system the same as that of the source by importing SAP_CR (in many steps ) and cim.SAP_CR is at 9.9 and model versio at 1.6.36.After this I tried to import the exported file in target xi system but it fails during the initial checks and gives the below message.

      "The selected ALL 1.0 full import belongs to the export line ALL which is not compatible with the export line(s) SAP_CR of previous imports. The data of the selected import may possibly interfere with the previously imported data."

      The equal level condition of SAP_CR mentioned in the note 1540435 ("Initially the target SLD should contain the same version of SAP CR content that is delivered with the initial full export " ) is fully satisfied.Then what went wrong in my case ? i have to do import of LD+NR export (in two steps seperately) and leave import of ALL export file ? Kindly reply.
