The client itself is about 40 GB. The complete PRD DB is about 73 GB. Whenever I try to run in test mode, it fails because it says the source client was not specified. I specify the source client every where I can, including the remote log on to the source client. However when I get to the last screen (after print parameters and after it's already submitted) the source client is blank. My entries from sm59 are the same. I am perplexed. Thanks, Rick

Is the client istself 40 GB, or is the complete SAP PRD DB 40 GB? Our DB is about 145 GB with several clients. I don't know how big the copied client was, but it took 6 hours to copy from a 830-8 way to a 720-2 way. Copying to a new client is faster than overwriting a current client.
Can you not yust try it out to a test client, and see how long it takes? (don't forget to reorganize the SAP DB after the client delete afterwards)
