SAP Basis Automation with SID-Refresh

UPDATE: As of February 2018, we have superseded this Windows-only version with a Java version for all SAP platforms on Windows/Linux/Unix.  It is offered as a subscription service included in our monitoring or via a paid SID-Refresh subscription.  If interested, please visit announcement SAP Basis Automation with SID-Refresh Now Supports ECC/CRM/BW/GTS/SCM/EWM/Solman


For years, as a Basis consultant managing SAP landscapes and performing SAP OS/DB Migrations, I always wished for some SAP Basis Automation, especially with tedious and repetitive processes such as System cloning, migration, and refreshes especially in the pre and post copy steps.  At OZSoft, we built checklists and runbooks long before there was SAP Landscape Virtualization Manager (LVM).  Those checklists and scripts are still useful and worked well, but they are manual, and while SAP LVM Post-Copy Automation (PCA) improved those basis tasks - it's still a costly licensed product from SAP (enterprise license needed for PCA) requiring yet-another landscape.

The most simple tasks, if not automated, can become complex and error-prone when they are frequently repeated especially by different team members.  At IT-Conductor, we're all about simplication so we decided to automate this as SID-Refresh tool and release it as Freeware (credit goes to our Super Basis consultant Vladimir Mokrushov for taking on this challenge), with the goal of saving our Basis community members endless hours over and over again.  Afterall, we believe Automation is the only way to efficiently manage the ever growing complexity of SAP ecosystem.
