System copy of a DEV system on the same server

Hi experts!

In our company, we have a 2-systems landscape, DEV and PRD, and we are working on the system together with another organization of the same company. Now, they want me to "split" the systems, one for each organization, making a copy of the systems. In other words, they want to completely split the systems, running on the same server, development server will have 2 systems, DEV and DEV' and so on in production server.

The doubt is in developments, as I don't know how to face the CTS and TMS setup to provide 2 different development environments, without losing the actual change requests for both systems. As you know, I have to change the SID, because the copy will be in the same server, so what happends with change requests?? Do I have to make a copy of DIR_TRANS and set up a new DIR_TRANS for the new system???

Thank you in advance!

Fran.

    Hi,

    With different SIDs you can have 2 Development systems in a single server, But need some clarification in detail.

    How you are planning to implement this scenario? I mean if you have DEV and DV1 as different development systems configured in one server, what would be the target server of the changes of DEV and DV1, same target ?

      Hi William,

      I guess I did not explain it properly.

      Now we have:

      1. System DEV in DEV server.

      2. System PRD in PRD server.

      Transport later ZDEV from DEV to PRD.

      And we will do:

      1. Homogeneous system copy from DEV to DEV' in DEV server, so we will have DEV and DEV' on the same server.

      2. Homogeneous system copy from PRD to PRD' in PRD server, so we will have PRD and PRD' on the same server.

      Sizing is good, servers are very powerful.

      The doubt is configuring the TMS, as we will have two different development environments on the same server. How do I have to set up the TMS properly???

      Thanks!!

    Hi,

    First I have to tell you that - It would be a clumsy configuration.

    Technically this is possible by creating new DIR_TRANS directory and by giving different SIDs for new DEV and PRO systems.

      HI

      Now I understand.

      It is not problem, perform a homogeneous system copy in your same server. When you installed your new copy, put new SID a new system.

      For the transport. Do you want put all system in the same TMS??

      TheOlder transport request preserved in transport directory with the SID, you can set a new transport domain in the same server without problem.

      The new transport request will create with the SIDK9XXXXX. in the transport directory.

      I hope. I have been clear.

      Regards

    Yes, You can perform homogenous system copy to get the second landscape (DEV' and PRO').

    After that you can use second trans directory for the new landscape.

    New requests will get created based on their SID (DEV and DEV'), Old requests you can change the extension (SID from DEV to DEV') to import them into new PRO' (As N When required, if)

      Granted your post is quite old, but wondering if what you found out in the end. What happened to open transports in the tartget development system.

      - Do they remain open or close/release automatically?

      - Do they become inconsistent or invalid?

      - Are the object locks released consistently?

      Thanks & Regards.

    what is the purpose of double development system? will your transport route like Dev-> Dev1->PRD?

    Then need different system id of DEv1 and it will work like QAS system.
