Renaming source systems

Hi BW consultants,

We are planning to rename our ECC source systems.

We are evaluating impacts on BW target systems.

Is there a simple way that existing datasources / infosources / update rules (in dev, test and prd) are not lost and that we don't have to recreate them from dev and to transport them again?

Thank you for sharing your experience on that subject.

Regards,

John

      Hi Ravish,

      I understand BDLS transaction can also be run in a productive environment, but carefully.

      Thank you also for the document you suggested, it is full of useful information.

      The documentation I'm speaking about is the standard documentation one can get by clicking on "Information" in the BDLS transaction.

      Regards,

      John

    Hi John,

    As Ravish told BDLS is the tcode being used for this purpose. You can execute this in Dev and check the impact.

    Hi John Iron,

    Make sure you apply all code corrections for BDLS before running it. There is a summary of the latest SAP Notes to correct bugs in this transaction.

    [886102 - System Landscape Copy for SAP NetWeaver BW.|https://websmp107.sap-ag.de/sap/support/notes/886102]

    Just keep in mind that SAP doesn't support BDLS in productive systems. If you face any error, you may not be able to count with SAP Support.

    Kind Regards,

    Paulo Junior
