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 Option. 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 chapter 6.3 'Follow-Up Activities for the Change and Transport System'. Check also SAP Note 1823824 - CTS+: Moving the CTS Deploy Web Service host.
