client copies for XI and BI Netweaver 4s

I'm in the process of building our development ECC 6.0 environment. The environment contains BI, XI, EP, ERP and Solution Manager each on seperate physical systems. We are building an ABAP and Java stack on BI, XI, ERP and solution manager. Our SAP consultants are informing me that the initial installation of client 001 (which is a copy of client 000) is configured during the installation on XI and BI systems. Creating a new client has no value and requires most of the configuration to be redone. Since both systems can only use one client, is there any value in performing this client copy other than standardizing the client numbers?

    Hi Lee,

    You can do a client copy and create a specific client for the PI (formerly XI) and BI capabilities or just use client 001 for both.

    Obviously the latter option is the easiest one. 😉

    The only benefit is that security might be easier with a separate client for each but that is a pretty weak argument in my opinion.

    BTW: You can't share a client for PI/BI with an ERP client.

    Cheers,

    Mike.

    What kind of security advantages do you think there could be for using a seperate client?

    I will use 000 and 001 clients for my XI and BI environments.
