How to find data source was migrated or not.

Hi,

I thought to explain how to find data source was migrated to 7.x or not. we have two options.

1. Directly at RSA1–>Data source,symbol at Data source,

2. By using Tables.

At RSA1 –> Data source. Under respective application component

Here i am taking data source : 0FI_AA_12 .

One of my team member was replicated data source into bw side and asked me to continue to develop further data flow. i thought to create info package(because we are on 7.x). when i select data source–> right click, create info package, but i got message like below.

/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/1_264707.jpg

So my data source was in 3.x version. when our data source was at 3.x version, you will be see some symbol before the data source(as shown in red box). By seeing that symbol we can say data source was not migrated. Here DS: 0FI_AA_001 3.x version. DS: 0FI_AA_11(at 7.x)

/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/1_264707.jpg

From above screen my data source 0FI_AA_12 (3.X).

Now i am migrating using normal steps which already explained.

data source–> right click migrate or use Tx – RSDS, enter the data source, from menu bar data source –> Migrate 3.x data source to –> data source. click on it

/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/1_264707.jpg

we will get below screen, Here we will go With Export:

/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/1_264707.jpg

Once it completed the migration, we will get status bar message like below.

/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/1_264707.jpg

Now see the symbol for mentioned data source(0FI_AA_12) at RSA1–> Data source. Once data source was migrated there won’t be any symbol(red mark) before the data source description(0FI_AA_12).

/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/1_264707.jpg

At RSA1–> Data source, by seeing the symbol we can say data source was migrated or not.

3.X data source with symbol

7.X data source without symbol

Using tables:

3.x Data source are stored at table RSOLTPSOURCE.

Here i am taking 3.x data source 0FI_AA_001. If we have multiple source systems then better choose Logsys(source system ID) selection also.

/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/13_269418.jpg

For 7.x Data sources are storing at Table RSDS. So if i enter the 3.x data source name(0FI_AA_001) at  this table i need to get zero entries.

/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/44_269419.jpg

So using two tables also we can find whether data source 3.x or 7.x.

Please  refer below thread about with export or W/o Export usage and How to revert back 3.x


http://scn.sap.com/thread/1558590

Due to the existing 3.x data flow, we will use 3.x as well as 7.x flow. In that cases by seeing the same aymbol at transferrules we can cosnider that as its 3.x flow, it have transfer rules an update rules.

bleow screen shows my flow.

Data source–> DSO1—> DSO2—>info cube –> multi provider

Here upto dso2 my flow is 3.x and dso2 –> cube is 7.x.

See the same blue mark for transfer rules. By seeing that symbol we can consider its in 3.x and rest is 7.x(mean no blue mark)

      Nice document Ram 🙂 but one small addition - mention source system also while finding information from table. Only the data source entry is not sufficient to decide whether it is 3.x or 7x from tables if you have multiple sourcxe systems. Along with that logsys is also required if one has multiple source systems.

      Yes, Accept with you Srikanth. that would be useful when we have multiple source system.Thanks for additional information.i will add.

      Thanks

      Hi RK ,

      Thanks.

      The other way could be to identify from the Object Type 4 digit code from Transport connection . Also think you can get this from ROOSOURCE as well .

      3.x has Object types as 'ISFS'.

      7.0 has Object type has 'RSDS'.

      Regards

      Hi Kamal,

      Thanks for your comments.

      Yes, thru transport might be possible. but once we in production we never think about transport to check its migrated or not. i checked the table ROOSOURCE, i didn't fine any related to this.  if possible pls check  and confirm the same from your end.

      Thanks

      Hi RK,

      In Production we can check transport connection and can get the object type of the data source right. I checked ROOSOURCE it doesn't contain the information on this it does have field datasource type but that's just for Transaciton , Master etc.

      Thanks

      Hi Raman,

      Thanks a lot for sharing this piece of information. I was aware of replicating data source with RSDS Tcode and chcking through symbol but wasnt aware of this Table method. Thanks for increasing my knowledge.

      Thanks for info Rama...Just now we have started migration proj and looking for some docs.

      Its very usefull info for me. Before seeing this doc I am little confusing with the symbols but verifying the same with the back end tables is the perfect confirmation.

      Thanks for the usefull point.
