Refresh QA from Production

Hi expert,

I have questions regarding client copy as per below detail:-

1. Can we scope the data to be copied ? i.e. scope of data (i.e. document creation date/year), copy only masterdata or transactional data of the specific module  etc.

2. The storage of QA need to be the same size of Production? If not, how to calculate if the QA storage is sufficient for copy data from production since my production has gone live on 2005 and we haven't refresh QA since 2006.

Appreicate your response.

    1. The scope of the copied data in case of client export or remote client copy is defined by the copy profiles which are as follows .

    SAP_ALL

    SAP_CUST

    SAP_CUSV

    SAP_CUSX

    SAP_EXBC

    SAP_EXPA

    SAP_EXPC

    SAP_PROF

    SAP_RECO

    SAP_UCSV

    SAP_UCUS

    SAP_UONL

    SAP_USER

    You can refer to the link http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/99/0a2a887e2511d2a6250000e82deaaa/content.htm

    for details on what is copied for each profile .

    You can influence the client data copy with expert settings by excluding tables and packages .

    Refer SAP note Note 446485 - CC-ADMIN: Special copying options

    2. You need to have atleast the space equal to the size of the source client . Determine the size of the source client . Just for info , the client copy would delete all the data of the target client before importing/copying the data of the source client except for certain copy profiles such as SAP_USER.

    Refer SAP note , for determining the size of the client.

    Note 118823 - CC-ADMIN: Size of a client

    Hi Rujira,

    Your requirement is for copying specific module data only. Now in theory you can achieve this  by either doing a  client copy for selected tables (figuring out those would be a bigger effort) or use TDMS (again for that lot of tables).

    However if you are talking refresh client copy goes out of scope. We are talking system copy here ..entire database or still if selective TDMS. Remember if this requirement is for testing you would want you programs in QA to be same as prod initially (and enhanced afterwards with development transports). Now repsository can't be copied during client copy hence a food for though.

    Regards.

    Ruchit.
