C4C lifecycle - Working with only 2 tenants

Hi experts,

I am writing you in order to get further advice from other consultants regarding a scenario where I would need to introduce several developments (not a lot, but still some) which consists ONLY on 2 tenants (TEST, PRD).

My first answer would be: SAP requires an additional tenant for DEV. However, I will have to advance with this scenario, with only 2 tenants.

Based on this, is there any advice you could provide?

Regarding quarterly upgrades, I do see a main risk which is that a PDI solution can only be deployed into a tenant with the same version (or up to 2 higher versions) which means that if we have our PDI solution in 2008 (in TEST), we can move it into PRD only if it is on versions 2008, 2102 or 2105. But, the issue is that when SAP provides quarterly updates, it does update the TEST tenant 2 weeks prior to doing this on PRD. This means that we will coexist having TEST in 2011 while PRD is still on 2008 (this will happen for a 2-weeks window where deplosy are not possible). What do you think?

Any additional comments, tips and tricks are very welcome.

    Dear Alejandro,

    This is current limitation with upgrades, as there is no possibility for deploying neither in 3 tier landscape as well. Only absl changes can be done to pre-production or production during these two weeks.

    I dont think we have any other recommendations on the above scenario.

    Hello Alejandro,

    What landscape does the back-end have? 2, 3 Tier?

    I am intrigued from a training/testing (SIT, UATs, regression testing for new upgrades, back-end upgrades and so on) point of view how this would work and I suggest that this is planned ahead really well.

    From the tech point of view, please have a look at this: (especially phase 3).

    Kind regards,
