SRM 7.0 Database Refresh

Hi everyone,
We are going to be performing a database refresh from our production system down to our development system.  We would like to maintain the current org structure that is in development though.  Does anyone know what tables we would need to export / import during the refresh to keep the org structure the same?  Also, do we need to worry about the product category replications?
If anyone has had any experience with this your advice would be very appreciated.
Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Nikhil,
Ok thank you.  Do you know anything about maintaining the same org structure that was in place already in our Dev system?  It is different than our production system as we do not have all of the users setup in Dev.  Also we have some test ID's in Dev that we would like to keep.  Do you know how to maintain the same org structure?
Thanks,
Jeff

  • Risks associated with database refresh.

    Hi experts,
    I need to clarify a  doubt .I have a cloned SAP BW system (from another system i.e SAn to SAN copy)and then after few months after the first clone I need to refresh the database(Oracle 10 G).The reason being I will have some changes in data at the source system from where it was copied earlier.I shall be applying the application changes by tracking the transport requests(from the original system).
    I need to clarify if we don't refresh the whole system again  by SAN to SAN copy and then do  a database refresh will there be any problem .Is there any risk associated with it.
    Will the requests be available to me on the monitor with the new data or there will be some issues.
    A quick response shall be very useful.
    Shailja.

    Hello,
    Orders for Production , Maintenance, Deliveries, Transfer Order  etc. are created according to the factory calendar .
    You must be sure that all operations can be carried out in the seven days of the week (e.g. deliveries), because SAP can be scheduling aTransfer Order for a Sunday and somebody can be calling you for fixing the issue!
    The normal case is that some operations can take place in the weekend (Production, Maintenance) but other Logistic Operations ( Deliveries) are done only from Mo to Fr. If this is your case, I would create an additional seven days calendar and assign it to the work centers in Production and maintenance, but the Plant would remain linked to the old five days calendar
    Hope this can solve your issue.

  • Database Refresh From ASM Filesystem to Local Filesystem

    Hi ALL,
    I am performing a database refresh from production server to a demo server. Our Production database is 11.2.0.1 and it is using ASM filesystem to keep the data, redo and other files in ASM disks.
    On the other hand demo server is not having ASM, all the database files are stored in a local filesytem.
    I have taken a fresh backup of our production database, but I am not sure to perform the restore part as the demo server is not having ASM.
    Can anyone suggest me how to perform this, I mean datafile restore from ASM to local filesystem.
    Any usefull links will be helpful.
    Regards,
    Arijit

    Hello,
    You can restore the backup of your Production database which is using ASM to your demo server (using file system).
    Make sure that the control_files parameter in the pfile/spfile is pointing to the file system location where you want to have contol files located on the demo server.
    Next, before you use the restore command to restore the database, provide the location of the datafile where you need to restore using the "set newname" clause.
    run
    set newname for datafile 1 to '<file-system-location-on-demo-server>';
    set newname for datafile 2 to '<file-system-location-on-demo-server>';
    restore database;
    switch datafile all;
    recover database;
    }

    Hi,
    When you copy files of standby server to another target server ? - Yesterday.
    Is standby is SYNC with primary? or MRP is still running? - ---------yes, standby db is running fine .
    Even you can open database with resetlogs after recreating controlfile, no need of recovery too -- >I was unable to open . So went to apply arch files.
    Do you have archive of thread 1 is in sequence #57887, -- No , Because sequence 57887 yet generate. I have applied all recent available archive log files.

  • Database refresh dependency for iBot

    I have an iBot which uses a conditional request which checks if the database refresh is complete. All this does is that the report does not run. How do I make it such that the iBot keeps trying until the database refresh is over & once the refresh is over, it does not run again.
    Thanks,
    Dinesh.

    I had a similar requirement, send an email once a day, as soon as something is ready, but then once it has run once, then dont send it again.
    I created a REPOS variable and pulled in the date from the ibot job table as follows :
    select max(convert(DATETIME,left(END_TS,11),102)) "DATE"
    from
    S_NQ_INSTANCE I,
    S_NQ_JOB J
    WHERE
    J.JOB_ID = I.JOB_ID AND
    J.NAME = 'ibot_last_run_date' and
    I.EXIT_CODE > 0
    Then build an answers request to return a row when this variable value is less than today. That should do it (works for me).
    My Repos variable refreshes every 10 mins, the ibot is polling every 10 mins on an off-set schedule.
    Only one ibot is run daily, and it runs within 10 mins of the data being ready.

  • Database Refresh error

    Hi John,
    I have multiple queries now
    1. I pushed the account hierarchy using ODI. Capex and Wrkforce have been initialised on my application before pushing the hierarchy. In the log it show that member 'buildings' already exist. When i checked the hierarchy there are other members with 'buildings' as part of them like AFE-Buildings.
    2. Also, when the database refresh is run the capex default account members are not visible in the hiearchy. They are seen in the planning applcn but not in the EAS console
    3. Can we de-initialise workforce and capex?
    Edited by: Sravan Ganti on May 18, 2009 8:23 PM

    Hi,
    I am not sure what you mean in question 1, if there is a member in any of the dimension called "buildings" then it will fail as it is a duplicate.
    If you see the members in planning and refresh from planning with no errors then it is more than likely they in exist in one of the cubes, make sure you have the plan types correctly set up in planning and are checking the cube that relates to the plan type.
    Cheers

  • Database Refresh:  Save Job Components?

    Our DBAs will be performing a database refresh of our dev/test environments based on a current Production model. To account for differences in our existing jobs/chains between Production and our other environments, it would be ideal to save off the existing objects in dev/test before the refresh. Once the refresh is complete, we could then restore the jobs/chains.
    Has anyone experienced similar?
    - If a schema refresh is done of the particular owner of the jobs, will the underlying jobs, chains, programs, steps, etc. be included in the schema refresh?
    - If not, where, specifically, are the scheduler objects stored so they can be copied?
    Any insight would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the caution. After we performed the export I removed the jobs owned by that schema user and was able to rebuild using the DDL. I did notice that when the chain rules were created, the 'condition' syntax was converted. For example, instead of my first rule having a condition of 'TRUE', Oracle converted it to 1=1. Instead of 'STEP_1 Completed and STEP_2 Completed' it converted to
    ':STEP_1.STATE = 'COMPLETED' , etc. I don't think this should really be an issue.
    However, the real kicker is that the chain rule 'action' came back null. This includes removing actions such as 'START "STEP_3" ', and even my 'END' action. Is that to what you are referring? Not sure if this is a bug and/or if there is a workaround?

  • Database Refresh Query

    Hi,
    A Very Happy New Year to all !!
    We want to refresh our Test system database with Production data.
    ECC 6.0 ABAP + JAVA system.
    We will be using Backup-Restore method (BRTOOLS) for the same.
    However, the problem is, our Production schema for ABAP and JAVA are SAPMI3 and SAPMI3DB resp. and that for Test are SAPMI2 and SAPMI2DB.
    After the database refresh, the schema of Test server will be changed to that of Producion.
    We can make the necessary changes for ABAP schema (ops$), however, would like to know, what changes (If any) are to be made for Java schema.
    Request your suggetions.
    Regards,
    Kiran Pol

    Hi Kiran
    The JAVA schema can be set in the configtool -> secure store -> jdbc/pool/<SID>/User
    However i am not fully sure, if you have to change it, i think the information is stored in the database already, so it will be already fine when you do a backup/restore.
    Do the test and prod system have the same instance numbers? Otherwise you will have the additional struggle with the ports. For example the dispatchers http/https ports.
    Don't forget to change the sidadm env variable dbs_ora_schema as well.
    Best regards, Michael
