I am trying to configure DDF in SAP Customer activity repository system. Prerequisite for DDF is to configure DRF replication for master data from SAP ERP system to SAP CAR DDF. we are already using SLT replication for master data from ERP to CAR, then is it necessary to have DRF replication again to configure DDF module in CAR? If DRF replication is required then is it necessary to have PI system? Few of the DDF configuration steps are mentioned below

Define the custom settings for data replication (transaction DRFIMG).

  • Define Technical Settings for Business Systems

    Assign a business system, a logical system, and an RFC destination to perform the initialization of data transfer.

while assigning business system in DRFIMG t-code, I am getting below error message.

Internal error in SLD API

Message no. LCR010

Diagnosis

The application programming interface of the System Landscape Directory triggered an exception.

Procedure

Contact SAP Support.

Please help me to resolve this issue. If possible please provide the documentation on DRF replication from SAP ERP to SAP CAR.

Regards,

Nitin

HI Nitin

Yes you would require DRF replication for DDF configuration. STL is needed because you must be having your ERP and CAR on different HANA database. It is more like replicating database instance so that CAR views can consume it. It won't update anything in CAR application tables.

For DDF to work you will need DDF tables to be populated which can be done using DRF replication. I don't think it will require PI system.

All the required configuration would be available in R80 document which you can download from SAP best practice website using your S user id.

Thanks

Vibhor.

Hi Vibhor,

Thanks for your reply. I checked with my basis team. Our CAR and ECC system are on same HANA instance. While configuring DRF replication in ECC system using DRFIMG t-code, , DDF configuration step has mentioned to define business system in "Define Technical Settings for Business Systems". Is this step mandatory? Do we have alternative like RFC connection? Also I am unable to find R80 document on SAP best practice website. Can you please share the direct link to download this document?

Nitin

Do you mind me asking, If your ERP and CAR are same HANA instance then why you are using SLT? I believe you just need schema mapping??

Thanks

Vibhor.

We are not using SLT replication as well. Both CAR and ECC are same HANA instance. I have configured DRF replication and replicated master data from ECC to CAR DDF. This data has been replicated in staging table in CAR DDF. Some of the data still has not replicated like sales price, moving average price and plant hierarchy. It has to be replicated through change mode only, but unable to do so. Also I need to move the data from staging table to production table using standard report /DMF/PROCESS_STAGING_TABLES. When I run this report and select master and transaction data to process inbound staging table, then it does schedule a background job, but nothing happens. I dont know where to check the master data and transaction data in production table in CAR DDF. Do you have any idea on this? Please advice.

Regards,

Nitin

Hi,

I want some information regarding DDF. After data replication from ECC to CAR, all production table contains data. Now, what is the future use of all data of production table?

Thnaks,
