Transport RFC destinations from one system to other systems

While there is no SAP-supported way to do so, learn how to transport RFC destinations from one system to other systems with this tip from Basis expert Giovanni Davila.

Hi. I would like to know if there is a way of transporting RFC destinations from one system to multiple other...


Good question! As far as I know there is no way to do this. However, I will share with you a method I've used successfully for my systems. Please note that this is an undocumented technique and it's not supported by SAP!

Export the RFC destionations stored in table RFCDES into a flat file and then import them into the destination system.

In a SQL Server environment you can easily use BCP (Bulk Copy) to extract only those RFC definitions you want and then load them into a new system.

See the following example:
Export all RFC Type "3" from system "sapdev", database "DEV" into flat-file "rfc.txt" via BCP: c:>bcp "select * from DEV.dbo.RFCDES where RFCTYPE='3'" queryout rfc.txt -c -T -S sapdev

Please take caution when using this technique and please do so only at your own risk.
