Hello All,

 

I want to do Homogenous system copy to change the SID of our existing PRD Server

 

We have virtulized our current PRD server & its working fine & we need to change the old PRD server as a development

 

hence we need to change he SID of old PRD server

 

Current System DETAILS:

 

Win 2003 SP1

 

Database : MAX DB 7.5

 

SAP : ECC 5.0

 

Please give me some idea how can i change the SID of the OLD PRD System

 

Best Regards

Amol

    Hi Amol,

     

    You may follow the following steps.

     

    1) Take full database + log backup of old production server

    2) Using SAPinst, perform database export

    3) Scrap old production system

    4) Install a new system with new SID you want . In SAPinst select system copy-> Target system

    5) Provide path of the export dump taken in step 2.

    6) Complete the installation using SAPINST.

     

    Above steps can help you achieve the desired result.

      Hi Deepak,

       

      Please tell me

       

      Do i need to do any preparatory task for same or should i directly take export & then import

       

      if any preparation required please suggest.

       

      Cause same procedure that you have mentioned causing error during the import.

       

      Regards

        Hi Amol,

         

        You may refer homogenous system copy guide for pre-migration and post-migration steps.

        In case your export is successful, import should go without problem.

            Hi deepak,

             

            After restoration of MAX db database on new SID i am not able to start SAP. Dispatcher is getting failed to connect database

             

            However i have updated the KERNEL patch level but still is not getting connected,

             

            Task performed :

             

            1. Offline backup of PRD server

            2. Restored successfully that backup on NEW DEV server with new SID.

            3. After restoration complete database is up & running.

            4. R3trans is also working fine.

                C:\Documents and Settings\shdadm>r3trans -d

                This is r3trans version 6.13 (release 640 - 11.05.06 - 13:04:42)

                unicode enabled version

                r3trans finished (0000).
