May I know that Why do you recommend a database data backup/recovery before activating physical clustering?
Thanks in advance.
The recommendation that you carry out a full data backup ("Save Data") followed by a recovery applies only to SAP MaxDB Version 7.6. < 05.
In these old SAP MaxDB versions, a data backup/recovery is used to allocate the tables evenly to the volumes in the best way possible. Fact table clustering can then be optimized.
As of version 7.6.05, the new FBM is used and the data backup/recovery action is therefore obsolete.
