Copy Background jobs to another systems.

Hi,

can we copy SAP Background jobs from one system to another system.

I do not want to create it again from SM36, instead if we can export to a text file and make some changes and import to another system.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Venkat.

    Well you can achieve this only by third party tools like Redwood or any other third party tool.

    Where you can export the job definition then change it and import to the next system.

    Thx

      Hey Venkat,

      Thats great you managed that, as I figured out that in addition to those tables, what we also need to ensure is that all reports have been moved to the target system by transports.

      As far as datapump is concerned, its a feature of Oracle 10g which is used for bulk data transfer in parallel.

      Thanks

    Hi,

    As far as I remember, I think this is possible (if am not wrong). There is one table which keeps the background jobs information. I would update you at the earliest.

    Pls refer to SAP Note 31503 - FAQ: Background jobs

    -


    6. Q: Can job definitions be transported into other clients or systems?

    A: No. Job definitions contain system specific parameters (target host, user, program, operation mode, ...). Therefore it wouldn't make sense to develop a transport tool. .

    For similar reasons, copying a job across clients is not foreseen. The following trick, however, is possible: Login to the target client (the one, where the job is to be copied to). The user must have job administrator authorizations. Then using transaction SM37 all jobs in all clients can be displayed. With the "Job > Copy" option a job can now be copied from the source client (only steps, no start time).

    cheers !
