Logical system name to be updated while client copy--URGENT HELP REQUIRED

Hello All,

I have a query regarding the "Logical System name" updation during Client copy.

When we make a client copy(SRM Masters) for the Production system(SRM),the Old Logical system name for backend(which is attached to the SRM masters) gets copied to the new Client (Copy) which needs to be updated.

There is a std transaction BDLS through whcih w e can change the current Logical system name to a new one but this seems to work fine for System copy but not for Client copy.

So when i make a client copy of SRM masters for Production system,is there any other std way wherein i can change the "Logical system name " for the backend or do i have to write a CUSTOM program wherein entries for the Backend Logical system name in tables like CRMMLSGUID will be updated with the new Logical system name?

Any help on this is appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

    Hi BDLS converts the logical backend system name in tables. There are some references to logical backend system that doesn't get updated. There are few areas to look at :


    Logical back end system in SPRO

    these are to the best of my knowledge manual tasks but there are not to many of them that need to be done. You will also have to check your idocs, distribution models etc...

    All in all the manual tasks should not really take more than an hour or two after a client copy.

    I don't know if you can write a program that will do these for you.

    Sorry but as far as I know after a client copy there is always going to be some manual tasks to complete.

      Hi Tracey,

      Thanks for the quick response...Even i feel that BDLS should work for our problem of "Logical System" but just wanted to know the opinions of the Experts in this forum who have already implemented SRM and might have come across this issue....

    Hi Disha,

    from my customer site, I set "same" logical system name for DEV/QAS and PRD system.

    for example,

    logical system name for SRM DEV/QAS and PRD = SRM

    logical system name for R/3 DEV/QAS and PRD = R3

    But be carefully if you went to change your "exist" in <SCC4> insert of <BDLS>.

    best regards,

    • Hi Guy's We have same issue. And seems like to change logical system, Guid etc should be okay. However what happens to the transactional data. As in our case the test client is refreshed every 3 weeks. In this case will we loose the linkage to the trn data?.Please can anyone shed some light.
