Yes, possible! But what is the idea behind?

I would like to have a copy of the environment in Production without the need to let them know that BPC will be off-line


If the users are performing data entry then data copied will be unpredictable...


yes I know, but for me is more important all the structure to be copied like script logic and so on


Just one thing to know:

If you use package links with saved prompts then if you copy the environment saved prompts will be lost in the copy!


I will lost in the copy not in the original, am I right?

so how do you recommend to make a copy?


For sure in the copy! Also Data access profiles will be lost for the copy.

Another way is to use UJBR to backup and restore with different name but I am not sure that saved prompts will not be erased with this method also. Please check yourself and post results!
