    Hi

     

    This is normally a system sequence , or the alingment.

     

    As a practice during SAP implementation we need to defile a Landscape for the request generated . Like

     

    1. Development client (Also called as Golden Client , All configuration and Request will be generated Here)

    2. Quality Client (All testing Will be done here)

    3. Pre-Production (This can be skiped if required)

    4. Production server.

     

    So if you want to define landscape, then this can better undestood as the sequencing of the server.

     

    Development-->Quality Client--->Pre-Production client--> Production Client.

     

    So we call the above as 4 system Landscape.

     

    Request generated during the configuration will be Transported according the shown landscape to have consistency among servers / clients.

     

     

    Thanks

    hi devendra

     

    Land scape northing but system.

     

    ex : generally early company's are having 3 system landscape.

     

    development

    quality

    production

     

    but in development we have another system we call that system as sandbox or golden what ever the customization configuration will do in sandbox. you can use the sand box as roughf purpose.

     

    ex: Development client (200)

          sand box client (220)

          quality ( 300) is nothing but a testing client. 

          production( 400).

    Hi Devendra,

    System landscape basically is the set-up or arrangement of your SAP servers. Ideally, in an SAP environment, a three-system landscape exists. A three-system landscape consists of the Development Server, Quality Assurance Server and the Production Server.

     

    In some Projects, they may maintain pre-production server also.

     


    Development Server is where the consultants do the customization as per the company's requirement. Once the BBP gets signed off, the configuration is done is development server and saved in workbench requests, to be transported to Quality/Production server.

    Quality server is where the core team members and other members test the customization.

    Production Server is where the live data of the company is recorded. This is the last/ most refined client where the user will work after project GO LIVE. Any changes/ new development is done is development client and the request is transported to production.

     

    Transport management system is the coordination of the movement of objects and configuration changes from the development system to the Quality Assurance system and then to the Production system.

    Best practise for transporting is, configuration/changes are first made in the Development system, thoroughly tested in the Quality Assurance system before been loaded into the production (Live) system.

     

    ----It is important to state that a test system - Sandbox can also exit separately. The essence of the sandbox is to test the configuration of the business processes of a company, especially at the inception of the project (before the Business Blue Print is signed). It can also serve as a practice environment, even after go-live. Whatever you do in the Sandbox doesn't affect the other servers or clients.

    Note: IDES is purely for education/demonstration/training purpose and is NOT INCLUDED in the landscape.

     

    Regards,

    Anand.

      Hello Anand

      This is a beautiful explanantion, but I have a controrary question to your statement

      "It is important to state that a test system - Sandbox can also exit separately. The essence of the sandbox is to test the configuration of the business processes of a company, especially at the inception of the project (before the Business Blue Print is signed). It can also serve as a practice environment, even after go-live. Whatever you do in the Sandbox doesn't affect the other servers or clients."

      Do u mean we can have a sandbox (Say DEV 120) under DEV instance in the same landscape were we Have DEV 100(Goldent Client) DEV110 (Development client for Developers) etc? Is this really possible?

      Or u mean to say that we should have a sandox outside the system landscape? What is the normal practise?

      Include sandbox within DEV instance of designed landscape or Sandbox in seperate Box outside the system landscape.

    Landscape : is the arrangement for the servers.

     

    DEVELOPMENT ---> QUALITY ----> PRODUCTION

     

    images.jpg

     

    DEVELOPMENT : is where the the consultants do the customization as per the company's requirement. Development would have multiple clients for ex: 190- Sandbox, 100- Golden, 180 - Unit Test.

      

    QUALITY : is where the core team members and other members test the customization. Quality may again have multiple clients for ex: 300- Integration Test, 700 to 710 Training.


    PRODUCTION : is where the live data of the company is recorded.  Production may have something like a 200 Production.
