S4hana Client backup

Dear Experts,

I have a small doubt regarding backup and restore of two s4hana systems.

We have installed the S4HANA Demo server and created a new client (suppose 500) for the configuration purpose.

So now all the configurations has been done completed.

Also we have implementing a fresh S4HANA server on premise edition (not demo).

So the Query is after implementing s4hana server is it possible to take a backup of that 500 client of the demo server and restore it in the freshly installed s4hana server.

IF so how can we do it ?? Please help !!

    Hi @John Varghese,

    Adding the points just like @Kumar Atul mentioned, you can do a system copy which is what we do for copying the Production data to a QA system, can be generate export-dump or database-backup restore. Else after installing on the same patch level, client copies like Remote client-copy or Export-Import methods are enough. Just the thing is you have to make a note of all background jobs & RFCs to reconfigure properly after doing this activity, just another BASIS simple task.

    Just so that you know you are supposed to read the documents for System-copy,

    System Copy and Migration

    I think in your HANA case the most & Best option available here:-

    Export and Import feature in HANA Studio

    Also there is a standard guide pdf provided from SAP itself for this System-Copy purpose.…
