Missing SKF Group data upgrade

Hello Experts,

We are in the process of upgrade of client system from 4.6C to ECC 6.0. After go-lve the client has come back and said that they have created some SKF groups in production which they are not finding after the upgrade has taken place.

We have noticed that while configuring SKF groups the system directly saves the data and doesn't ask for any transports. Thus we have to manually create the same in different systems. Another way is by OKE9 we can transport the entire set of SKF group from one system to another. We were fearing that the data got overwritten when a transport like the one mentioned above moved from Mass to Production environment. To test this we are creating a scenario wherein we will create some dummy SKF groups in Mass, move an existing transport from Release to Mass and observe whether the newly created data in Mass is getting wiped out or not. By this way we can replicate the scenario we assume to be taking place in Production. It is found that the data in Mass is still present after the trasnport has been moved.

We have checked the SETHEADER and SETLEAF tables for the missing SFK groups in production but to no effect.

Just wondering if there are any other ways in which data in production can be missed.

Thanks in advance for the help.

    Yes, it could have gone with the transport. That's why I prefer to Export/Import groups and not to transport them. Another reason for missing data would be somehow connected to the upgrade itself, but I didn't encounter such a statement in the past.
