What is the procedure for importing a client that was exported with SCC8?
The exported client (via SCC8) is now available in the form of transports at the OS level and it's also available for import via STMS or TP IMPORT. If you are using R/3 4.5 or higher, use transaction STMS to import the client. Simply go to the Import Overview in STMS of the system where you want to import the client into. Then, highlight the first transport created as a result of the export and click Import. The import will take a while. Depending on the size of the transport, it may take several hours. Once the import is complete, you need to log in to the target client and run transaction SCC7 to perform the post-client import, which normally does not take long at all.
