The Client Copy tool is use to copy selected components of an existing client to another
client. The target client can either be in the same R/3 system or in another R/3 system.
For copying clients, R/3 offers copy profiles that make it easier to select and combine the
components you want to copy. SAP delivers the following copy profiles:

 Copy profile             Description

 SAP_USR                  Copies user master records and profiles only.

 SAP_CUST                 Copies all Customizing tables, including user profiles.

 SAP_UCUS                 Copies all Customizing tables, including user data and user profiles.

 SAP_ALL                  Copies all data belonging to a client.

Copying clients requires a large amount of system resources. To avoid premature
termination due to bottlenecks, you should ensure that enough resources are available.
We can copy clients either online or in the background, but SAP recommends that you
schedule client copies as background jobs.

Procedure of client copy:
First of all we create a new client in the system in which we want to perform client copy.

Client Creation:
    1. Logon as sap* in the client 000 in the target system.
    2. Call transaction SCC4.
    3. Click on the change icon button to change the display mode.
    4. Enter the three digits client name which (i.e 800, 900 etc) and fill other fields in
       the screen.
    5. Enter the description of the role of the client in the system.
    6. Specify one of the following changes and transports for client specific object:
           a)      Changes without automatic recording
           b)      Automatic changes of recording
           c)      No changes allowed
           d)      Changes without automatic recording, no transport
    7. Specify the change option of the data and objects (No Transport allowed, No
       Changes Allowed, Automatic Recording of Changes and Without Automatic
       Recording of Changes)
    8. Specify Client Independent Object Changes
           a)      Changes to Repository and Cross-Client customizing allowed
           b)      No changes to cross-client customizing objects
           c)      No changes to repository objects
           d)      No changes to repository objects and cross-client customizing
           Changes without automatic recording is suitable fro demonstration and
           training client.
    9. Also specify one of the following protection attributes for a client:
          a)      Protection level0 (No restriction)
          b)      Protection level1 (No overwriting)
          c)      Protection level2 (No overwriting, no external availability)
          A client with protection level 1 and 2 cannot work as target client.
    10. We can further restrict the access to the client by selecting one of the following:
          a)      Starting CATT process allowed
          b)      Protect against SAP upgrades
          When the client is created an entry is added in the table T000.

Copying the data in the client:
After creating client we fill up the client with the data. A client can be filled with data with
various ways:
    1.      Local client copy
    2.      Remote client copy
    3.      Client transport

Procedure for Local Client Copy:
   1.    Logon as sap* in the new client, run the transaction SCC4
   2.    Select profile for client copy
   3.    Specify the source client

Procedure for Remote Client Copy:
   1.    Logon as sap* in the new client, run the transaction SCC4
   2.    Select profile for client copy
   3.    Specify the so system and client
