Deleting a large Client


Why don't you try deleting the client on the OS level and not from
SAPGui (i.e. SCC5)?

Here are the steps. If for example you plan to delete client 30, log
on at the OS level as <SID>OFR and change directory (i.e. chdir)
to /usr/sap/trans/bin. Then using an editor like edtf or any editor
you're familiar with, create a file called delcli (you can use any
name you want), with the following text:


Save the file and execute the command:

r3trans -w delcli.log -u 1 delcli

I have tried these steps a number of times and it's a lot faster and
better then deleting a client from SAPGui. This is how I delete a
client in SAP 3.1H, not sure if there are better ways in the later
