Should we use multiclient on APO?

Hi,

We are having SCM 4.1. I have been generally advised not to create multiclient on same APO system. We have SCM 4.1. I am not convinced why?

Do you know technical/business reasons why SCM APO imposes such restrictions.

thanks in advance,

regards,

Vithal

    When you do the RFC connection from R/3 to APO ther one to one relation and SAP has recomand that you should not assing more thatn one client in RFC fo rsame system.

    Specify SAP APO Release

    Use

    In this IMG activity, you specify the release level of the SAP APO system

    that is defined as the target system.

    Requirements

    The target system must be defined under Name Logical Systems.

    Activities

    1. Under LogSystem, enter the target system defined under Name Logical

    System (for example, AP4CLNT000).

    2. Under System Type, enter SAP_APO.

    3. Under Release, use input help to choose the relevant release.

    Further notes

    Note that the setting(s) that you make in this IMG activity are dependent

    upon the target system concerned. For this reason, there is no transport

    to the production system. As a result, you need to also make the settings

    for the relevant target system in the production system.

    Set Up RFC Destination

    Use

    In this IMG activity, you create the connection between the SAP R/3

    system and the target system. The name of the RFC destination has to

    match exactly the name of the logical system that was already specified.

    Requirements

    The target system must have been defined under Name Logical Systems.

    Activities

    1. Open the R/3 Connection node.

    - Client: Use input help to choose the relevant clients. The client

    that needs to be set depends on the current authorization profile

    of the user (Customizing).

    - User: User-selectable. The user entered here must also be created

    in the target system (SAP APO) with a corresponding authorization

    profile. If you want to carry out cross-system debugging, the user

    has to be also be created in the target system as a dialog user

    with debugging authorization.

    - Password: User-selectable. Default setting at system delivery:
