      Nicely presented Naga.

      Also as an add on info, before logging in to the new client :-

      Please set login/no_automatic_user_sapstar = 0 parameter in default profile so that we can login ino the new client with sap* and password as pass.

      Hi Buddy,

      Just a suggestion:

      Pre-requisites -

      1. You need to monitor Log area continuously else Client copy will be failed once it is full.

      2. Also take care of Temp Table space if you are working in Oracle Database.

      Enjoy Posting

      This document is quite generic, for a ERP based system a client copy should include the creation of and RFC for FINB_TR_DEST

      Good post.  Many people need help with client copies.

      One suggestion:  use t-code BD54 to go directly to logical systems rather than use SALE.

      HI Naga,

      Nice document, but it is not discourage you. Why I need to create SALE for local client copy. It require only for Remote client copy

      Each Client in the system must have a logical system name if you are linking to BW or any other SAP system.

      Hope that helps

      I cannot believe that this blog was written in year 2013.

      This kind of blog should have been written in year like 2003, we teach client copy to the person in first week who joins Basis.

      Blog on SCCL?

      Dear All,

       

      Can anyone share SCCL help link with newer releases, its not that easy doing it now due to unnecessary authorization build up. I mean in a new system built on NW 755 , when you do SCCL when you create a new user with sap_all , it says "sap_all profile does not exists"

      Needless to say The new tool is a pandoras box and so much complex.
