    Please check installation/upgrade guides and Notes available over SMP as mentioned above.

    Perform upgrade using SUM and Unicode conversion by system copy export/import after upgrade.

    UCCHECK has to be done prior to upgrade.

    • Hi Subbu,

      the effort for doing a combined Upgrade & Unicode conversion highly depends on several different aspects - e.g. for export/import procedure:

      Overall Database size

      Size of specific Tables

      - Size of largest tables

      - Size of cluster tables

      Available Hardware

      - Number and speed of CPUs

      - I/O Performance of disks

      - Separate server available for PRD Unicode system

      - Additional (temporary) hardware available for export and import

      Settings

      - Special r3load export / import options (e.g., unsorted export)

      - Profile parameters (see SAP Notes 784118 and 857081)

      Time and number of tests spent on optimization

      Please have a look at

      Combined Upgrade and Unicode Conversion

      and SAP note 1322715 for details.

      Please also note that a conversion of an MDMP system will add significant effort (mainly in transaction SPUMG).

      Best regards,

      Nils Buerckel
