dual maintenance/transportable objects

Hello,

We're looking at transport strategy. We will have the same concept of a parallel landscape on DEV and QUAL systems to avoid any freeze during upgrade, as described in thread 'dual maintenance'.

- does the dual maintenance means 100% of changes applied in DS1 has to be 'manually applied to DSA? If not which one can be transported from 46C to ERP Unicode and which one need to be applied manually?

- how did everyone convert and maintain their ABAP? Some 7.0 functions are not available in 46C and vice-versa. Was the Unicode-enabling code changes applied in DS1 then transported to DSA? Did anyone use utility upload/dowload and if so, which case?

- how about programs created in DS1 after the DSA creation/upgrade. At that stage they are still non-Unicode? Was it converted then transported to DSA?

Thanks and regards,

Terry

    The times I have upgraded, we also had parallel landscapes. We always manually performed configuration changes in both landscapes, maining a Parallel Transport Control Log to ensure no config from the old landscape was forgotten in the new.

      Hello,

      Thanks for that very informative reply. I would like to extend this scenario.

      In addition to the DS1/DSA system, we will have a production-copy sandbox. I am aware that there are codes that are available in 46C and not in ERP, and vice-versa.

      I'm sure others also had this production-copy sandbox, so how/where did they 'convert' programs?

      Thanks,

      Terry
