The client copier can copy a client into another system. The systems can be on different platforms. You can change the client number.


When you copy a client from one system to another, the data is transferred directly via the RFC interface - there is no intermediate storage on hard disk.


Codepage conversions are performed automatically, as far as technically possible.


Do not use the same client as the source for several copies or client transports at the same time.
