Client copy to create a new production system

Hello, I am aware that system copies or client copies are generally used to create test systems or training systems as part of regular operations.

However i wanted to ask on this forum, would there be any issues to use such a copied client to create a NEW production system. We have a requirement to use customizing copy to create a new client which is expected to be used productively.

Are there any issues with this approach?

Would this copied client have somethings missing or may be something extra that would not make it suitable to be used productively?

Thx

Chandrakanth

    Dear Chandrakanth,

    please find SAP Note 489690.

    A copy of a production client created through a client copy must never be directly used for production.


    Best regards,

    Andreas

    We have done roll-outs using this method. We exported the existing production system (customizing profile) and created a new production system for a different region.

    Hi,

    Good Day!

    I think there's no problem using it. As long as the requirements are in that client and just make sure to use correct profile for your requirements. and also don't forget about the QAS/DEV it must be paralleled from PROD.

    Hi Chandrakanth,

    One thing you don't get with a cross system client copy are customer developments. Even including client independent data only gives you client independent customizing but not the ABAP coding in customer namespace (nor the modifications done to SAP coding).

    Kind regards
