New Client creation using SAP_CUST v/s SAP_ALL profile post installation


I have a conceptual query as follows:

After new SAP system installation we create a new client copying 000 using SAP_CUST client copy profile as per SAP Note 550894 - CC-ADMIN: Setting up a new client

I have read through the SAP Note but still fail to understand technicality in terms of comparing the same against using SAP_ALL profile.

My understanding is using SAP_ALL profile would bring in some more client specific data (application data), consistency of which cannot be guaranteed as per above SAP Note.

Understanding the above risk are there any other reasons considering which SAP_CUST must still be used for copy and not SAP_ALL ?

Thanks & Regards,

    The reasons already been mentioned in the SAP note that you mentioned about number range and application data consistency.

    But as per my personnel experience, I did a lot of copy with SAP_ALL profile and did not face any error. Just my personnel experience and does not have any recommendation that you also follow the same.
