Source System in an ABAP Landscape

Former Member
0 Kudos

We are relatively new to SAP. Back when we initially architected the landscape we had many consultants in, including several Platinum consultants from SAP. At the time they emphasized the special nature of the "source system" in an ABAP landscape, and how it should never be refreshed and how we should not change which system in considered the source in our landscape. "Once the source always the source."

Now we are being asked to change the source system, but we do not have the background as to why the source system is so special and why it should not be refreshed or changed.

Would you be willing to share your opinion on the matter? Pros/Cons/Costs of Changing/Costs of Refreshing.

Thank you very much.

There is a SAP Note 130906 for this. Pasting few lines from note for your referance. Please ref Note for details.

Symptom

You want to copy the versions of the repository objects from one R/3 system into another, for example because you are planning to copy your production system to your development system.

Such a procedure does not correspond to the strategy recommended by SAP, to always retain the development system.
