Client Copy From PRD to DEV

Hi All,

I am a BW functional consultant and am facing a situation wherein the BW PRD client needs to be copied to the BW DEV. My query is what are the prerequisites for this in terms of hardware and s/w ? is it possible to perform this w/o copying the extracted data from PRD to DEV- that is i only need to copy the modelling in PRD to DEV- is it doable ? Plz note that the PRD is a very active system and is being extensively used.

Regards,

Saurabh Diwakar

    I do not recommend copying BW-PRD to BW-DEV, you will lose version management in BW-DEV.

    Also BW-PRD is probably much bigger than BW-DEV, so, this will use much more disks space.

    a client copy is meaningless in BW systems, go for homogeneous system copy instead.

    all in all, ask your BASIS to do this kind of analysis for you.

    What's the "situation"?

    Please explain your scenario in detail... most likely is something that can be fixed without a regresh.

    Technically this could be (easily) done using a systemcopy:

    You can "just" import an offline or online (more work) backup from the production system, no necessity to touch the PRD system.
