      Hi Dude,

      Please goto Tx SCC8 ( Export Client ) and select the profile SAP_UCSV ( Customizing, User Master Records and User Variants) or else SAP_UCUS ( Customizing and User Master Records ) then select the Target system (As of DEV) then execute.It has been generating 3 transport request files like RO,RX & RT ( It will be stored in Data & Cofiles Folder under TRANS directory.

      Now you can do the create a New for Target System then manually add the O, X & T transport files to TMS Buffer and do the post installation of Client Import using Tx SCC7

      Please Let me know further doubts.

    If I'm understanding you correctly, then client copy isn't the answer. There is no client copy profile that copies master data but not transactional data. When I need to do this, I copy customising and users using profiles SAP_CUST and SAP_USER, and then use ALE to copy the required master data. Setting up the ALE config the first time is a bit complicated, but you only need to do it once.

    In fact, if all you want to do is copy the data from PRD into an existing client in DEV you can skip the client copy steps and just use ALE to copy the required data directly from PRD. This is a relatively painless way of keeping at least the master data in DEV up to date for testing purposes, without having to do a complete system copy.

    Does that make sense? Is there a better way? If so, I'd love to know what it is!

      I would not look to a client copy to do this since you will get quite a bit more data than what you need.

      To set up transfers via ALE you will have to create ports, partner profiles, RFC's and so on. A description can be found on this website: [SAP-ALE-Tutorial from the SAP-CORE website|]. The process can setup to run either periodically or on an as-needed basis (no pun intended).

      A better long term approach may be to look into one of the client refresh products that are out there. I believe GoldClient, SelectRefresh and others have the ability to copy back sets of master data (TDMS may be able to do this as well) and importantly can mask certain parts of data that may need to be hidden due to security concerns (especially with HR data).

      Hope that is helpful.

    Dear Sir,

    Remote Client Copy process you can do multiple ways.

    Through SCC9 if your database size is small.

    Throgh Export Import process , SCC8 and SCC7 T-codes ..

    I recomment before start all the activity please read the Remote client copy guide procedure. Becasue for this activiy you will require the PRD downtime.

    Please revert for further queries.
