Copying users & roles across system

I have a ABAP based demo system and a development system.. I had created a couple of users and roles in different clients in the demo system. I need to transfer all of them to the development system and scrap the demo system. The development system does not have any users / roles at this time. These systems are not configured in same transport domain either. I have created same clients in the development system.

What is the best way to transfer roles & users across the system for all the clients or if I'd want to do selected clients ? Would it be best to

- configure a virtual system in stms for demo system and

- then export SAP_USER..

- carry the data/cofiles to the development system and

- import them there ?

OR should I import/export roles from pfcg for all clients individually ?

Also, is it possible to assign them a common password once they are transported ?

Thanks

    Hi Jay,

    You perform Client Copy with SAP_USER, where all the details would be copied.

    Thanks,

    Hi Jay,

    You plan is not bad, you can use CATT scripts to mass reset passwords

    Remote client copy would make sense and it would be easier than copy data files and co-files using export/import method.

    Use eCATT for mass password reset.

    Hi Jay,

    If you want transfer only roles and users then remote client copy is also a good method through SCC9. select the SAP_USER profile and copy. You need o create a RFC between demo and dev seystem

    Another process is - Do a MASS DOWNLOAD for all the roles in your machine and upload on DEV server.

    The other process is NO need to create a virtual system. You just create a Transport request for all the roles and users in DEMO system. copy the cofile and datafile for that perticular transport in your dev server in the usr/sap/trans directory. And add that perticular request number in dev server through STMS and try to Import.

    Warm Regards
