client deletion

Hello all...

I'm now recreating our development system from an offline backup of our production system.

I have created a new client (150) and I'm currently deleting client 100 to get rid of all its data (almost 3TB) and leave the DEV system with only the customizing.

However, this process is taking too much time and after almost a complete day is still on the A* tables.

Is there a way to speed up the process? For example, delete all contents of some huge tables "where MANDT = 100" on the OS database level?

Thanks

Antonio

    Hi,

    As you said Client data have 3TB..so client deletion will take long time (atleast 3 days).

    If you have only ABAP....Why don't you user database refresh concept?

    Thanks and Regards,

    Jibin.

    Is there a way to speed up the process?

    You can maintain the RFC Groups(RZ12) to take advantage of the maximum amount of processes to increase the performance of the Client Deletion as well as client copies.

    Still 3TB is quite a bit of data so its not going to be quick,
