Remodelling Advanced DSO

Remodelling of Advanced DSO works little different. I did not find any content on SCN so writing in this document. I am just sharing steps to activate advance dso to take effect of changes once remodelling id is created. There are plenty of documents that covers how to create / change advanced DSOs so not duplicating.

When any Advance DSO is created and data is loaded to the ADSO; and then later if it requires to remove any field or change partition criteria (like I did – changed the Hash Partition criteria in Advanced DSO); the advanced DSO does not get activated and a message shows as “Remodelling rule <rule number> <dso name> has been created instead of activation”.

See below where I tried to change to Advanced DSOs ZGLD_AD24 and ZGLD_AD37 and got below warning messages.

– hash definition has been changed

Remodelling rule 20160822  ZGLD_AD24 has been created instead of activation

– hash definition has been changed

Remodelling rule 20160822  ZGLD_AD37 has been created instead of activation

Now to run the remodelling rule – go to transaction RSCNV_MONITOR.


Here in transaction – you will see all the remodelling rules and their steps will be marked as “Step  not started”.

Select the Modelling Rule and “Start Request” – this will start the processing and the step status will be changed to “Step  running”. Once all the steps completed under one Advanced DSO – it will be active again and step will be marked as “Step  completed successfully”.

Following are the steps under the remodelling:

     Checking InfoProvider

     Saving InfoProvider

     Converting InfoProvider

     Activating InfoProvider

     Cleaning up

Once the remodelling job is completed all the steps will be marked green. As in below screen shot – remodelling for ZGLD_AD24 is completed where as ZGLD_AD37 is still running at process of converting infoprovider.Remodelling Completion.jpg

      While we run remodelling rule, does aDSO remain offline i.e. users can't report?

      The aDSO is offline. After remodelling the aDSO is available for reporting again.

      suppose I developed an ADSO with 10 keys.

      Now I have data in it and we need a further key.

      I have two questions:

      Can I simply move the info object (e.g. plant - used in existing data already) so that it is a key now?

      Or do I first have to clean the ADSO? A normal DSO would require this (I tried).

      Or is it even better: The ADSO allows and uses the key also for historical data?


      Thanks a lot for tips

      Hello, I have deleted a remodeling rule as it was failing continuously.

      Now, DSO is not allowing me to activate again unless that remodeling rule is run successfully.

      Even deletion of data in DSO and trying to re-activate is also not helping here.

      Can you suggest here?

      Hi Suchen,


      once you have deleted a failed remodeling run, you should reset the ADSO to the state as it was before you applied your changes. Then, you might have a chance to reactivate it. If it still doesn't work, create a copy of your ADSO, apply your changes there, activate it, delete the old one and copy the new one with the technical name of the deleted. Of course you have to release all dependencies of the old ADSO (Queries, composite providers, aggregation levels etc.) before you can delete it...

      If your ADSO is planning-enabled, you must switch it to "Loading mode" before you change anything on its characteristics and mustn't change to planning mode, unless the remodeling job was finshed successfully

      Hi Maik,

      Thanks for your reply.

      RSPM_MONITOR  - transaction has the log of all the requests.

      There is a pending request which is corrupted. I have deleted that remodeling request and DSO is activated successfully.

      Quick update:

      Apparently the transaction is now RSMONITOR running program RSCNV_MONITOR.
