Deleting a large Client


Why don't you try deleting the client on the OS level and not from
SAPGui (i.e. SCC5)? I always delete my SAP client from the OS level
and the performance is a lot better.

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 3.1H, not sure if there are better ways in the later
