Job logic instead of customizing
Planning Guide for the Connector for SAP Landscape Management
Partial copies from SAP systems with the help of tools open up potential savings and in many cases make system copies and complete client copies superfluous. The ability to anonymize data reduces the effort required to comply with data protection regulations in training systems, for example. In addition, up-to-date, consistent test data improves the flexibility and quality of development and test environments. Users save money through reduced resource requirements.

For a long time, manual procedures dominated, supported by SAP (guidelines), in particular by predefined procedures and a large number of checklists. In many places, this was supplemented by scripts created in-house, which, however, only automated partial tasks/processes of an SAP system copy.

Unicode conversion: During the copy, the system is converted from non-Unicode to Unicode. This happens in the context of a homogeneous or heterogeneous system copy. In connection with Unicode must be differentiated between the system copy of a Unicode system and the Unicode conversion.

After shutting down the target system, the technical system copy for upgrade 1 can be created at the infrastructure level. To automate the creation of the technical system copy for upgrade, HP System Copy can be used for the following steps.

"Shortcut for SAP Systems" offers the possibility to backup and restore any tables. Not only those that are considered in the PCA tool (Post Copy Automation) but also self-developed tables. Thanks to the simple and clear interface, backup and restore of self-developed tables can be integrated quickly and easily. The command line interface can also be used to automate the process: for example, a simple line command can be used to perform a complete backup of table contents before the system copy, and a simple line command can also be used to restore these tables after the system copy. This means that the complete backup or restore process can be integrated into any automation software.

A disadvantage, however, is the high storage space requirement of such a test system, which corresponds to that of the productive system.

Due to the large amount of data in an SAP system, the individual steps can take a long time to complete.
