Precaution: Customer must be aware and accept full responsibility for cleaning table contents in the refreshed system.

Can E2E System Refresh Automation support my system applications deployed in Linux/Unix?


Can E2E System Refresh Automation support my system applications deployed in Windows?


Can E2E System Refresh Automation support my system applications deployed in the cloud?

Yes. Regardless of where your environment resides, you can use E2E System Refresh Automation to simplify your system refresh process if your systems are enrolled in IT-Conductor.

What are the most common factors affecting the application performance?

The automated process executed using E2E System Refresh Automation remains consistent without miss regardless of system complexity, provided instructions are followed properly. However, system complexity affects the runtime of the export/import/cleanup together with the degree of parallelism and the number of components you selected for the export/cleanup/import process.

How long does it take to perform the export/import/cleanup process using E2E System Refresh Automation?

The entire process may take from a few minutes up to several hours depending on the same factors mentioned in the previous question. On average, it would take 4 hours to complete the system refresh process end-to-end.
