Build a new system shell quickly
You need a new clean system (with minimal effort)
Whether it's a new sandbox or training system you're after, or whether you're looking to realign the non-production repositories with production, building that new system usually implies lots of time and effort, not to mention extra disk space and careful transport management. Not so with System Builder!
Our solution is to build a new non-production system, with a repository exactly the same as that of production, but without the production client. DSM System Builder provides a standard, extendable solution for making a complete copy of all repository objects and client-independent data in production. The extract can be created quickly and has a small footprint.
Use this export to create a new non-production system 'shell', with client 000 (contains the basic client-dependent customization supplied by SAP for new clients), client 066 (used by SAP for support) and optionally client 001 (customization copy of client 000). You can use the standard SAP tools (sapinst) to do this.
The new shell will be in sync with production and is the perfect target system for a Client Sync . You can then use Object Sync to add only the specific data relevant to your purpose (such as training or testing). The result is a system with a smaller footprint and up-to-date data.
System Builder benefits
- Create a new SAP system shell using a fraction of the disk space of a complete copy.
- Export the complete repository of your system in minimal time, using parallel processing and table-splitting techniques to improve performance, if necessary.
- Include Client 000 and 066 and optionally Client 001 – this means that the system shell is ready for use.
- The repository objects and client-independent configuration of the new system are in sync with production.
- Add up-to-date data with Client Sync or Object Sync.
- You can test or train on the program versions used in Production.
