How to change a source system

Hello,

we have just copied our BW productive system on the consolidation system. With this copy on the consolidation system now exist the source system to our productive R/3 system.

I would like to connect the bw consolidation systen with the R/3 consolidation system.

Does anybody now a possibility to switch the existing source system "R/3 productive" to "R/3 consolidation".

All source system related objects (infopackages and so on) should be switched to the new source system too.

Thanks

Frank

    Hi Frank,

    you have to use BDLS transaction, logical system conversion tool...in this way, all your existing transfer structures (and related datasource assignement!) will survive (and you too !).

    However, for more details, take a look to OSS Note 325525 'Copying and renaming systems in a BW environment'.

    Hope it helps (and please don't forget to reward the answer if you like it...)

    Bye,

    Roberto

    • Hi,

      Roberto's answer is correct but it is making the assumption that all the DataSources in R/3 production are the same in R/3 QA.

      Once you have done the BDLS in BW for the source system technical name, you will have to do a source system check and restore. This will check the idoc and low level communication settings.

      As Roberto states, SAP note 325525 is the best source of information.

      Finally, you will have to deal with the data differences. Your data in R/3 QA will not be the same in R/3 PRD. This is a manual process.

      Cheers,

      Mike.
