ActiveControl offers a Dual Domain Controller concept that allows customers to manage ActiveControl within their organisation via more than one Domain Controller.
This Dual Domain Controller architecture was originally built in 2014 to support a larger SAP customer that wanted different System Integrator partners to be responsible for managing different parts of their SAP landscape within ActiveControl. More recently, it is also commonly used by Basis Technologies’ customers performing cloud migrations of their on-premise SAP estate, to mitigate the limitation within ActiveControl whereby it is only possible to manage one SAP system of a particular System ID (SID) within a single Domain Controller.
Whilst using Dual Domain Controller setup to manage cloud migrations, customers often need to deploy changes made in their on-premise Development system (SID = DEV) into a new equivalent cloud Development system with the same DEV SID. Deploying a transport into another system of the same SID was not possible via the existing out-of-the-box Import Methods, and required the use of a special Import Method that was not part of the standard product and resulted in Basis Technologies regularly needing to deliver a standalone transport to customers wanting to use ActiveControl to manage their cloud migrations.
To avoid the need for this seperate transport, ActiveControl 9.10 brings this capability into the standard product to help support SAP customers performing their cloud migrations via ActiveControl.
Please refer to this online Knowledge Article for details on how to enable this specific feature.
Please contact your Basis Technologies’ Customer Success Manager if you are about to embark on your cloud migration and would like more information on how ActiveControl can help with this.
