System copy tools for SAP Basis 46C.

Hi All,
I need to do system copy for SAP Basis 46c. I have a query regarding the tools used for system copy. It is written in the SAP Documents and we need to use the latest version of the system copy tools (i.e. R3load,R3check,R3ldctl,,R3szchk,R3trans).
I need to do the Heterogeneouse system copy
Source :- Oracle 9.2.0.8 , AIX 5.3
Target :- Oralce 9.2.0.8 (Or 10.2.0.4 if possible) , Sun Solaris
So my question is
1) Am i suppose to use only the tools (i.e. R3load,R3check,R3ldctl,,R3szchk,R3trans) which are compatible to relase 4.6C (Kernel 46D_EXT, latest path level is 2541)  or
2) Can i download and use the Latest version of system copy tools (i.e. Withe release 7.00 for R3load,R3check,R3ldctl,,R3szchk,R3trans) to do the herogeneous system copy of SAP Basis 4.6C ??
Please reply.
Thanks

> Yes we are aware about the certified consultant. But before going for such a big project we wanted to find out the possibilities how we can minimise system downtime and optimize the process therefore wanted to have some information earlier.
Exactly that is the use of that consultant Those are experienced people who have done lots of migrations in the past, they know the possibilities of the tools and versions.
> So now i am very sure that we can use 10.2 while installation of new target system while doing heterogenouse system copy from oracle 9.2.
Correct.
> 1) Migration Monitor (source :-System copy & Migration optimization.pdf)
> The Migration Monitor is downward-compatible. As new features and bug fixes are only implemented in the latest version, SAP urgently recommends that you always use the latest version available.
You can use it of course but support of it is not "built in" - there's no clicker to check as is in newer versions of sapinst. You will need to modify the R3S file at the "correct place" to make use of it.
> 2) Distribution Monitor (Source :- Distribution Monitor (version 1.9.1) Usersu2019 Guide)
> Restrictions:-The following restrictions apply to the current implementation:The DM does not support system copies of releases lower than SAP_BASIS 6.20
So you can't use that option.
> 3) PACKAGE SPLITTING (source :-System copy & Migration optimization.pdf)
> The package splitting option is available and integrated into the system copy tools R3SETUP and SAPinst since SAP R/3 4.0B SR1.
The "old version" is a perl script, you'll need to make sure you have perl installed.
>
> 4) TABLE SPLITTING  (source :-System copy & Migration optimization.pdf)
> AVAILABILITY:
> Table splitting can be used for ABAP systems with SAP kernel 6.40 or above
So that is also not usable.
> 6) R3LOAD OPTIONS - (source :-System copy & Migration optimization.pdf)
> R3load option '-fast' (<= 4.6D) or '-loadprocedure fast': These options are available
> u2022 from SAP kernel release 6.40 for - DB2/UDB - MSSQL - Oracle (see SAP Note 1045847 - Oracle Direct Path Load Support in R3load)
So it's also not built in for Kernel 46D_EX2.
> Request your final comments on the above points and Need to know whether parallel import and export can be done for 4.6C (46D_EXT Kernel)  release using migration monitor. Please reply.
As I said before and as is written in the documentation, it can be used but not "by default", you'll make sure you stop at the right place with your migration to configure it manually (or the consultant will do).

  • Java System Copy tool

    Hi,
    We have an ECC6 on NW 7 landscape and require a tool to copy system data across 2 SAP systems. I have come across this Java System Copy Tool. I have downloaded the packages:-
    Time analyzer
    Package Splitter
    Migration monitor
    OraBRcopy
    read the various documents that came with it and i just wanted to know that does this need to be run with SAPinst or can these need to be run individually? seems a bit confusing as there is no a straight forward document to read. I have read the Oracle Parameters that need to be set so that is one thing to discuss with my team.
    We have a very big database and i wanted to ask if someone out there has used this that how long did it take migrating your database and under what conditions i.e. was database shutdown, done when system least used, etc?
    It seems that Migration Monitor does the job of exporting and importing the packages but i am not sure how Package splitter or time analyzer fits into this?
    OraBRcopy is the same as using R3COPY so that is no problem for me but just these inidividual tools i need help understanding.
    Your help would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks
    Mani

    > We use the database copy procedure and apply redo logs after to a level the apps poeple want it, but recovery takes a long time and it requires lengthy file checks as some are missing so we were investigating alternative methods available one of which was this SAP tool.
    You never do full backups?
    > My understanding of what you are saying and please correct me if i am wrong.. is that sapinst can copy either java content (assume you mean the java database schema??) or ABAP schema or both. export the java contents and continue using the normal database copy/redo logs method?
    Yes. You would
    - take a backup of the source database
    - execute "sapinst", select system copy and select, that you're doing a "backup/restore" procedure
    - sapinst will put all the Java parts together and create a dump of it
    - you start sapinst on the target system, select system copy and that you're doing a "backup/restore" procedure
    - sapinst will install SCS/CI and stop then asking you to recover the database
    - sapinst will continue and setup the Java part
    What you encounter is one of the major drawbacks when using DualStack instances. I would, if it's possible, separate the two instances so you can copy them independently of each other.

  • PI 730 - XI Content for SAP BASIS

    Dear Support,
    When I searched the SAP Marketplace for "PI 730 - XI Content for SAP BASIS", I have found the files which has .SCA extension instead of .tpz or .zip file extension.
    Am I looking into a wrong directry if so, could you please help me in pointing to the correct directory?
    Otherwise, could you please let me know the way to Import the Design Objects onto PI 730 system?
    Thank you,
    Nikee

    Hello
    The 7.30 SAP Basis content is delivered as a *sca file. You need to extract the *tpz file from this and import into the ESR in the normal manner. See the kba #1637955 PI ESR Content for SAP BASIS 7.30 for further details.
    P.S. point 6 of the previous post is incorrect - "Under this you can get XI CONTENT PI_BASIS". It is available under XI CONTENT SAP_BASIS (not PI_BASIS)

  • System copy guide for Solution Manager 7.0 SPS15

    Hello,
    a new hardware is needed for our SAP Solution Manager 7.0 SPS 15. I will install a new SAP Solution Manager and do a system copy from the old hardware to the new one. There is no migration neccessary, because OS and DB will be the same.
    Now I'm searching for some informations and guides to do a system copy of a SAP Solution Manager. All I found was a system copy guide of Netweaver 04s SR3/SR2 with informations about Java Usage Types but not for Diagnostics.
    Are there any guides or howtos to do a system copy with SAP Solution Manager ABAP+JAVA? Does anyone have experiences and advices?
    Kind regards,
    Sascha Piotrowsky

    > Looking forwards to this event I'm afraid of forgetting some dependencies or configurations which have to be changed also, like SMD-Agents configuration,s trusted connections, wiley introscope, e2e and so on.
    Wily is not part of the copy - you will need to copy this "manually". The connections et al must be re-done...

  • Can anyone help with a good system maintenance tool for ML

    Does any one have any suggestions for a good dependable all-in-one system maintenance tool for ML and is it straight forward and easy to use?
    Thanks in advance .....

    You really have no need for one. That said:
    Kappy's Personal Suggestions for OS X Maintenance
    For disk repairs use Disk Utility.  For situations DU cannot handle the best third-party utilities are: Disk Warrior;  DW only fixes problems with the disk directory, but most disk problems are caused by directory corruption; Disk Warrior 4.x is now Intel Mac compatible. Drive Genius provides additional tools not found in Disk Warrior.  Versions 1.5.1 and later are Intel Mac compatible.
    OS X performs certain maintenance functions that are scheduled to occur on a daily, weekly, or monthly period. The maintenance scripts run in the early AM only if the computer is turned on 24/7 (no sleep.)
    If you are using a pre-Leopard version of OS X, then an excellent solution is to download and install a shareware utility such as Macaroni, JAW PseudoAnacron, or Anacron that will automate the maintenance activity regardless of whether the computer is turned off or asleep.  Dependence upon third-party utilities to run the periodic maintenance scripts was significantly reduced since Tiger.  (These utilities have limited or no functionality with Snow Leopard, Lion, or Mountain Lion and should not be installed.)
    OS X automatically defragments files less than 20 MBs in size, so unless you have a disk full of very large files there's little need for defragmenting the hard drive. As for virus protection there are few if any such animals affecting OS X. You can protect the computer easily using the freeware Open Source virus protection software ClamXAV. Personally I would avoid most commercial anti-virus software because of their potential for causing problems. For more about malware see Macintosh Virus Guide.
    I would also recommend downloading a utility such as TinkerTool System, OnyX 2.4.3, or Cocktail 5.1.1 that you can use for periodic maintenance such as removing old log files and archives, clearing caches, etc.
    For emergency repairs install the freeware utility Applejack.  If you cannot start up in OS X, you may be able to start in single-user mode from which you can run Applejack to do a whole set of repair and maintenance routines from the command line.  Note that AppleJack 1.5 is required for Leopard. AppleJack 1.6 is compatible with Snow Leopard. (There is no confirmation that this version also works with Lion or later.)
    When you install any new system software or updates be sure to repair the hard drive and permissions beforehand. I also recommend booting into safe mode before doing system software updates.
    Get an external Firewire drive at least equal in size to the internal hard drive and make (and maintain) a bootable clone/backup. You can make a bootable clone using the Restore option of Disk Utility. You can also make and maintain clones with good backup software. My personal recommendations are (order is not significant):
      1. Carbon Copy Cloner.
      2. Data Backup
      3. Deja Vu
      4. SuperDuper!
      5. SyncTwoFolders
      6. Synk Pro
      7. Synk Standard
      8. Tri-Backup
    Visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQs on maintenance, optimization, virus protection, and backup and restore.
    Always have a current backup before performing any system updates or upgrades.
    Additional suggestions will be found in
       1. Mac Maintenance Quick Assist,
       2. Mac OS X speed FAQ,
      3. Speeding up Macs,
      4. Macintosh OS X Routine Maintenance,

      6. Essential Mac Maintenance: Rev up your routines,
      7. Maintaining OS X,

      9. How to Speed up Macs, and
    10. Myths of required versus not required maintenance for Mac OS X.
    Referenced software can be found at CNet Downloads or MacUpdate.
    Be sure you have an adequate amount of RAM installed for the number of applications you run concurrently. Be sure you leave a minimum of 10% of the hard drive's capacity or 20 GBs, whichever is greater, as free space.

  • How to perform system copy using standard sap method (sapinst)

    Hi guys
    pls tel how to perform system copy using standard sap method (sapinst) and to perform enterprise portal RESTORSTION.
    thanks
    kamal

    Hi Kamal,
    I have done a system copy of the production portal to a sandpit system before. The system copy export import method works very well, and is easy. For my portal, the whole procedure took me less than 6 hours.
    1. Go to this page: System Copy and Migration
    2. See the videos "Demo: How to Perform a System Copy Export" and "Demo: How to Perform a System Copy Import".
    This should give you the basic idea.
    I did a systemcopy using sapinst. If I remember right, this is the steps I performed:
    1. On target host, Installed a new Central services.
    2. On source host: Ran sapinst system copy export for Central Instance and Database instance. This created two export files (depending on your database size).
    3. Used the export files created in previous step to run the import step in target host.
    4. Some post processing steps, like configuring sso, creating systems in system landscapes, configuring WD JCos etc.
    Let me know if you need more help.
    Cheers

  • Web page composer (CMS) tool for SAP Netweaver 7.1 CE?

    Hi All,
    Can some body help me out finding the WPC tool for SAP Netweaver 7.1 CE version? All i can find in SAP portal is for WPC tool for SAP WAS 7.0 (2004s) version.
    Thanks,

    Hi,
    No you would find that business package also for 7.1. I doubt if SAP has released any business package for 7.1. CE 7.1 was especially meant for building and deploying composite applications. For all other usage types you would have to go for NW 2004s Portal aka EP 7.0

    Hi,
    For SAP R/3 we use CATT and ECATT tools.
    Both are very useful tools and generally used for automated functional testing.Reduces a large amount of cost and human effort.
    Even you can convert or call external tool scripts like mercury QTP etc from ECATT and run from ECATT itself.Also you can use these tools with solution manager to get awesome effortless testing and test plan management.
    Check my weblogs.
