2259615 - ChaRM/QGM: Correct Procedure of Refreshing a System Managed by a SAP Solution Manager System


  • A Development (DEV) system needs to be replaced/refreshed
    • New DEV system will replace the original one
    • Production (PRD) or Quality Assurance System (QAS) will be copied to overwrite DEV system
  • A non-source system needs to be replaced or refreshed

CAUTION!!!: ChaRM application does NOT recommend the copy of DEV systems, because many system specific attributes will be overwritten during the copy and that will lead to inconsistencies after copying. It is possible that your system and ChaRM/QGM project cannot be used after the copy, so please consider this warning before performing any system copy.
