Retrofit Configuration Issues

Hi All,

I am configuring retrofit for dual landscape and want to test transport mechanism from DEV [Maintenance Landscape] to D01 [Implementation landscape]. I have some doubts regarding the configuration.


DEV - Maintenance Landscape

SM1 - SolMan 7.1 SP 12

D01 - Implementation Landscape


1. Does all systems DEV, QAS & PRD needs to be configured to test retrofit or just 3 systems[DEV, SM1, D01] will be enough?

2. Does transport routes should be configured between [DEV, SM1, D01], I have created RFC & domain links between solman and two landscapes (maintenance & Implementation). Also, if the system already contains domain transport routes assigned do I need to create a new transport group specific to retrofit configuration?

3. Logical components should be assigned to new maintenance project and logical component should have product assigned. How can we assign two product systems to logical component to assign ECC & Retrofit systems.

Please help

    1. The only system you need for retrofit is D01; the point behind retrofitting is to avoid an overtaker transport from the implementation landscape to your production system.  This syncs a maintenance transport into D01 and when that gets promoted to Prod it ensures the latest version of the object( s ); then you refresh your system back on to DEV to keep objects in sync.

    2. You will need a transport route from some system back to D01; this 'system' will vary depending on your business some want a retrofit after a QA transport releases as Prod is the next system.  Some businesses say it doesn't happen until Prod has been verified and didn't cause a problem.

    3. You need to create a logical component that has all systems you want to participate in change mgmt.  So you would include all of your ECC systems if you want it handled from a centralized system.

      Glad to hear you got D02 resolved via SAP support.

      As for PRD:100 perhaps a new thread would be best as it's a different system from the original issue.
