Client Copy Question


I was going through one of the notes for client export and got a step by step procedure.

Just one confusion is that do I need to create the Client using Transaction SCC4 in source system before starting the export from target system.

Also in the client import step we have to execute the below commands in usr/sap/trans/bin folder

tp addtobuffer PERKTnnnnn <SID> pf=TP_DOMAIN_DER.PFL u18

tp import PERKTnnnnn <SID> client xxx pf=TP_DOMAIN_DER.PFL u18

Please correct if the there any errors in the above statements.

Do I need to execute this statement seperately for the 2 or 3 requests created

    Hi Parvez,

    You dont need to create the client using trx SCC4. The 'target system' field shown in trx SCC8 is for the systems created in STMS. If you want to export you QA client to your PRD client defined in STMS, just choose this system in SCC8.

    Choose the profile you want to use to export your client. Could be for example: SAP_EXBC (cutomizing, master user, clint-independant data).

    After you execute the export client, you will have 3 transport transport request orders (you can see the progress of the process with SCC3):

    <SID>KO<nnnnn> -> client-independant data

    <SID>KT<nnnnn> -> client-dependant data

    <SID>KX<nnnnn> -> client-dependant texts

    and their corresponding cofiles files...

    To import these orders you must follow this order:

    1) <SID>KO<nnnnn> -> client-independant data

    2) <SID>KT<nnnnn> -> client-dependant data

    3) <SID>KX<nnnnn> -> client-dependant texts

    For the 1 and 2 you must use these commands:

    - tp addtobuffer PERKOnnnnn <SID> pf=TP_DOMAIN_DER.PFL u18

    - tp import PERKOnnnnn <SID> client xxx pf=TP_DOMAIN_<SID>.PFL u18

    (for each order 1 and 2)

    where TP_DOMAIN_<SID>.PFL is the name of your domain profile. You can find it here: <drive>:\usr\sap\trans\bin.

    For the 3rd transport request (texts) you can use SCC7.

    Hope this helps you, good luck!

      Hi Jessi,

      Thanks for the support. However as you mentioned that three requests will be created. But after selecting SAP_ALL profile only two requests were created which were successfully exported.
