BW - Creation of Source system (ODP - SAP (Extractors)) while Traditional connection is existing


We were just upgraded to BW 7.5 on HANA from BW 7.3. We are trying to create

ODP - SAP (Extractors) source system. Since our system is already connected to ERP system ( Deltas are running), while creating new source system on ODP-SAP(Extractors), it doesn't allow to create with same logical name which being using in existing connection.

Should we delete existing source system ( SAPI) before creating new source system (ODP)?

Is there any other way to have both ODP and traditional systems for the same logical system(ERP)?

Thanks in advance...

    hi Raju,

    your source systems must have different technical names. Thus, supposed, your original SourceSystem is called NNNCLNT100, the ODP may be called NNNODP_100.

    Also create new users in the RFC-destination for both ECC and BW Systems. Just copy the existing ones (like ALEREMOTE...)
