Replication : 3.x datasource

Hello

I am having a strange problem. When I try to replicate a data-source from application hierarchy, it sometimes gives me an option if I want to replicate it as 3.x datasource and at other times it does not give me the option, simply replicates as 3.x

I do not want 3.x datasources, so not sure what to do with it. I can offcourse migrate after I replicate but that does not seem to help because there are number of issues with that approach.

Is there a global setting which is replicating most of my datasources as 3.x?

    Hi,

    There are no global settings. The only option you will get that you can replicate them after choosing the option.

    Hi Matt,

    I don't think there is any global setting for that, what you can do is, if your data source is already replicated then just delete it form BW system then go to transaction RSDS put the name of data source and respected source system and from the menu select the option replicate data source.

    This time it should ask you whether you want to replicate it as 3.X or 7.0

    Hi,

    Post 3.x TO BI7 upgrade while working with replication of datasources you will come across these options.

    One is to replicate the datasources as RSDS or old WAY..

    If you select RSDS you can use latest BI7.X functionality of datasources in SAP BW.

    aGAIN In RSDS transaction you can see option to convert datasource from 3.x to BI7 and from BI7 to 3.x

    but again all the objects may not convert related to this flow. You can see some documents as well on this.

    Thanks and regards
