Client copy (export/import) from ECC to BW

It is technically feasible to import a client exported from a NW system installed as ECC 6.0 into a NW ABAP Stack (designed to be a BW system)?

    Please elaborate your question. What the Client copy profile are you planning to use ?

    If your requirement is to copy client from ECC6 to BW then not possible.

    You can only do client copy in same SAP applications (ie. ECC6 to ECC6 systems, and BW to BW)

    Hi,

    1. SAP_ALL profile would not copied using export/import method (SAP ECC --> BW ABAP) as most of the tables of ECC are not present in BW (mismatch of data dictionary structure).

    2. You can copy SAP_USER (user master record)

    3. If your ECC and BW systems are not in same transport landscape/shared transport directory (trans group), then copy/ftp the export files from ECC (data and cofile) to BW system (same path - usr/sap/trans) and add the transport requests manually to import buffer of target system/client.

      It's better not to go with client export/import (any profile) methodology. Either save the customizing in a transport request and move to BW or do it again in BW.

      Thanks,
