2259615 - CharM: Correct Procedure of System refresh or copy regarding DEV system in Charm Project.


DEV system in the project will be replaced or refreshed.

Usually it could happen in following situation:

1. DEV system needs to be copied to a new DEV system with a different SID. New DEV system will replace the old one.
2. PRD or QAS system will be copied to overwrite DEV system.

If you would like to refresh your development systems by copying from another system, please be extremely careful.
CAUTION!!!: SAP does NOT recommend the copy of development systems, because many system specific attributes will be overwritten during the copy and that will lead to inconsistencies after copy.
It is possible that your system and ChaRM/QGM project cannot be used after the copy, so please consider this before you really perform the system copy.
