Dual Stack Split

In case you update your CTS system to a release which requires a Dual Stack Split (or if you do a split for any other reason), you have to do follow-up activities for your CTS+ configuration. For Details, refer to https://support.sap.com/sltoolset →  System Provisioning →  Split a System using Software Provisioning Manager 1.0 → Dual-Stack Split Guides (SAP help page). Choose the guide which fits for your System (based on SAP NW 7.0 or 7.1 and higher). Choose your operating system and then read within the chapter on 'Follow-Up Activities' (currently chapter 6) the sub-chapter 'Follow-Up Activities for the Enhanced Change and Transport System'. Check also SAP Note 1823824 - CTS+: Moving the CTS Deploy Web Service host.
