User export / import with a CUA system



I was wondering if it were possible to re-import users and their authorisation roles after a system refresh.

I ran SCC8 and did a SAP_USER export from our QA system. The system was then refreshed using the system copy/restore method, SID changed etc. Unfortunately because the source system (PRD) was also the CUA system, the refreshed system 'thought' it was the CUA system and the only way I could get CUA happy again was to delete the CUA entries in BD64 in both QA and PRD and re-add QA as a child system using SCUA.

The problem is that all the QA user - authorisation mappings in the CUA system have been lost.

Could I re-import the user export? Or would this only work for non-CUA systems? I tried importing the transport into QA and got a multitude of errors...!

Many thanks
