Post BI System Refresh steps- RSA1 issue

Hello All,

I am doing the post system copy for BI system. We did our system copy for both BI and ECC in parallel.

Now I am unable to Restore the Source system in RSA1 by right clicking, when i do that it i can get upto the steps where it prompts me to log in as admin to the source system which is fine, checked rfc is also fine. In the final step i get a message that says "Source system does not exist" . All the logical names have been changed using BDLS and RFC connections are reconfigured too.

This is what I have done so far:

-Ran BDLS (both in Target EEC/BI) , same in ECC.

-Changed Source system logical name for Mysource.

-I also changed the entries in Table RSLOGSYSDEST in Target BI.

After doing some research I found that table RSBASIDOC table in Target (ECC) system, there are still entries copied from u201CSource u201D systems , and we need to deleted those old source system connections by running RSAP_BIW_DISCONNECT functional module with the following parameters in ECC (target ECC):




I tried doing this .....when i execute this FM in ECC (target system) it prompts me to log on to the Source BI system , is this normal? I am little hesitant about this if it would delete some tables/objects in BI sytems.. can anyone pls tell me if this is normal?

Since there are stilll some entries in RSBASIDOC in Target ECC systems with old connections entries, could this be the reason why I am unable to restore the Source system in Target BI system in RSA1.? if not what else could be the issue here?

Please suggest...i would appreciate your help...

    I am not sure if i did in the correct sequence :

    - Should i have ran the RSAP_BIW_DISCONNECT first ? and then should i proceeded with other steps such as BDLS, RFCs, partner profiles? When i ran the BDLS it also changed the Source system names but i still need to restore source system i beilieve. Can I delete the existing source system and create a new one or do i have to restore it?

      AS per note 886102 - I user FM RSAP_BIW_DISCONNECT to delete entries from RSBASIDOC table. But this also deleted the source system node form RSA1.

      Can you please tell me if it is okay to recreate this sources sytem manually? if so what is the impact? thanks
