BI 7.0 client-copy for customizing data

We have heard that using client copy to bring over BI configuration to another system's client using SAP_CUST

is NOT desirable.

We have searched the internet for this topic but failed to find any explanation on this.

Could anybody help explain this?

Thanks a lot!

    Hi Helen,

    If you copy with SAP_CUST only customizing is copied. All master data is


    It's only the SAP_USER profile that won't overwrite customizing or data,

    other than the user master data.

    All the other profiles will delete everything from the old client and be

    overwritten by the new client.

    Best Regards,

      Hi Helen,

      As per SAP's recommendation - a BW client copy between two different systems is not supported completely: Note 965206

      Even if a client copy is performed it is recommended to be used for non-productive usage. Best option would be to perform a system copy. Note 886102 could give you more options for the planning the copy.
