Client Copy Hanging When Try to Start Immediately in Background (TIME_OUT)

Hi Gurus,

We want to perform local client copy from client 100=>101

However, the client copy is hanging when we want to kick start immediately in background.

Reproduction Steps;

1. Login to newly created client 101 by SAP*, pass

2. Call T-code SCCL. Click Schedule as Background Job

3. Check 'Immediately' box, then press 'Schedule Job'

4. Screen is hanging, then give us TIME_OUT after sometimes

5. Increased parameter rdisp/max_wprun_time=>7200 (2 hours) in instance profile. Restart SAP MMC

6. Still hit the same TIME_OUT error after 2 hours.

Could you please advise

    Hi Iqbal,

    If it cancels out after 2 hours and your parameter rdisp/wp_max_runtime is 7200 seconds it means it is actually kicking it off in the foreground.

    First check if you have any background processes free at the time and that jobs/are not in suspended mode. If background processes are available select background server and click on start immediately.

    You have two option either by increasing your BG work process to 6 or more and then try to run your local client copy.


    Changing the parallel process to 3 or 2.

    Default client copy parallel process has 6.
