Change SAP SID

Dear Experts,


We have two identical SAP R/3 systems (same SAP SID, same database name). We use the first one as production and the second as quality. Since we want to correctly configure the landscape, we must rename the second one (i.e. from PRD to QAS).


We have decided to change only the SAP SID from PRD to QAS (no change to DB) manually.

This means that we are going to change the profiles, filesystems' names, userids.


The result will be:

1. One production system (as is) SAP SID= PRD , DB_NAME=PRD

2. One quality system SAP SID=QAS , DB_NAME=PRD

3. Configure the TMS in order to import requests from QAS to PRD.


Do you think that this is going to work?

Any suggestions please?
