restoration of deleted delta queues in RSA7


Hi BW experts -

Our delta queues in R/3 PRD source system were accidentally deleted in RSA7. Although no data was lost between the BW PRD instance and R/3 PRD instance I am unsure as to the best way of:

a) re-establishing the delta process,

b) ensuring that no delta updates are lost between R/3 and BW

Some BW admins say to simply run "Delta Initialization" Infopackages for all Infosources in BW (using the "Initialize without Data transfer" option)

Others cite that this process does not guarantee data consistency (in that certain delta information in the source system may be lost - depending on the datasource) and that the only foolproof method for guaranteeing data consistency is to blow away data from BW targets and re-initialize delta's from scratch (including data transfer).

Can anyone please point me in the right direction? Thanks!
