    Dear,

    client is highest organisation unit in sap. client has its seprate master records and its own costomization setting. In real time we have three servers DEVELOPMENT, TESTING/QUALITY, PRODUCTION. for each server we can create one or more client. client could be same in all servers but usually we don't do in real time because it is confusing in real time, so we assign different name to each client.

    Hi,

    Client is the highest organisational unit in SAP. So client equals to Company. You can create any number of company codes under client (company)

    a self-contained unit in an SAP system with separate master records and its own set of tables.

    Within one server (sometimes called box or instance) you can have more than one client. Usually, in a simple R/3 environment, you have development, Quality and production server.

    Within Development server, you can have a golden client and a unit test client and a sandbox client. Golden clients is where the any development is entered to get into a transport request to be taken to QA server, and then after test, moves to production server.

    Sandbox client is open for config changes, to play around for developers and consultants.

    Ususally the production server QA server have a client called playpen or production support, where, the production is copied periodically, for the users to play around/rehearse with various transactions.
