    Now whatever you do in the Sandbox doesn't affect the other servers or clients. Whenever you think you are satisfied with your configuration and you think you can use it moving forward, you RE-DO it in the golden client (remember, this is a very neat and clean client and you cannot use it for rough usage). As you re-do everything that you had thought was important and usable, you get a transport request pop up upon saving everytime. You save it under a transport request and give your description to it. Thus the configuration is transported to the Unit Test client (180 in this example).

    You don't run any transaction or even use the SAP Easy Access screen on the 100 (golden) client. This is a configuration only client. Now upon a successful tranport by the Basis guy, you have all the configuration in the Testing client, just as it is in the Golden client. The configuration remains in sync between these two clients.

    But in the Testing client you can not even access SPRO (Display IMG) screen. It's a transaction only client where you perform the unit test. Upon a satisfactory unit test, you move the good configuration to the next SERVER (DEV). The incorrect or unsatisfactory configuration is corrected in Golden (may again as well be practised in the sandbox prior to Golden) and accordingly transported back to 180 (Unit Test) until the unit test affected by that particular config is satisfactory.

    The Golden client remains the 'database' (if you wanna call it that) or you may rather call it the 'ultimate' reference client for all the good, complete and final configuration that is being used in the implementation.

    The Development Client is also the Golden Client because it

    has all the correct configuration settings which have been

    tested and are error free. The Golden Client is taken a

    reference while performing some other configuration

    settings.You cannot change any settings in the golden client.

    Golden client is the productive client in SAP system landscape...for example if you have DEV,QA and PRD system then as per procedure you have a maintain same productive client on each

    system.That client is called golden client.

    Hope it helps...

    Hi,

    In Golden client,Configuration is only allowed.

    You are not suppose to create any Mater data or transaction data.

    After makin in Golden client,it will be released and transported to testing client where integration or unit testing takes place.

    Regards

    Hi,

    The Golden Client is a very neat and clean client and you cannot use it for rough usage. This is a configuration client only [no master data created here or available] and taken as reference while performing some other configuration settings or checking. You cannot change any settings in the golden client (regarded as correct configuration settings which have been tested and are error free).
