How & Where is SAPinst ?

Application Team
Currently Being Moderated

I am going to use SAPinst to export my existing SAP R/3 Enterprise (Oracle 9i, HP-UX) and import it into a new machine with Oracle 10g and HP-UX.

 

Now I have the following questions :

 

(1) Which DVD should I use first ?

(2) Is SAPinst a GUI program ?

(3) If yes, do I need to install X-Windows on my HP-UX ?

(4) Or it has already been installed ?

(5) Or, I should put the starter DVD on a Windows machine and then logon the HP-UX machine remotely ?

(6) Or SAPinst is not the best choice and you have some better ideals ?

    Hi,

     

    What you are planning on doing is a Homogenous System copy, refer to the System copy guide.

    These can be found at

    service.sap.com/systemcopy

     

    SAPinst is a GUI Program. You can find this file in the Installation master DVD.

     

    Doing the export and then importing using R3load is a database independent method,

    is used more often.

     

    Refer to the system copy guide and you can decide for yourself.

     

    Regards,

    Vishnu

    1. You need to use the SAP R3 Enterprise Installation DVD.

    2. Yes SAPinst is a GUI.

    3. Yes you need to install X-Windows or use X-Manager

    4. Check in ur OS

    5. You can install Xmanager on a Windows PC and use it to access Unix machine.

    6.  No better ideas
