Oracle 10g to SQL Server 2012

Hi,

We are planning to upgrade our SAP. Our environment: Windows Server 2003, ERP ECC 6, Oracle 10g.

Am looking for guides to migrate our Oracle database to SQL Server 2012.

With new server, may I know how to convert our data from oracle to SQL Server 2012?

Thank you.

    Hi,

    First place to start

    https://websmp207.sap-ag.de/OSDBMIGRATION

    Then check PAM to ensure the direction and versions you want to migrated are supported https://websmp207.sap-ag.de/pam.

    Please check link here.

    http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-8324

    In marketplace you can also use the guidefinder, for your versions this should be correct.

    Kind Regards,

    Johan

    Dear ZL,

    This is an OS/DB migration (heterogeneous migration where either the OS or the DBMS or both are changed). As mentioned, such a project must be carried out under the supervision of a certified OS/DB Migration Consultant. You find more information at http://service.sap.com/OSDBMIGRATION.

    Check SAP notes 89188 & 547314 both will clear your queries.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi,

    Regarding your DB migration activity you can find details on the below given notes, links

    http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-8324

    Also before this activity check the per-requisite of MS SQL 2012 in SAP Note 1651862. Check the required patch level in note 62988 - Service packs for MS SQL Server.

    Hi,

    May I know if there's any conversion fee required from licensing wise payable to SAP if we change from oracle to MSSQL?

    the database will be solely used for SAP and nothing else.

    regards,

    zl

    • You'll probably want to get quotes from both and compare total cost. Remember in this equation the cost of support (if you get the license from SAP, then you can get support for it from SAP), and the cost of core-based licenses (your contract terms may differ, but if SAP supplies the license then a typical scenario would be that you can install and use SQL Server as much as you like as long as it's for an SAP system, whereas if Microsoft or a reseller supplies it, then you'll want to look into getting a subscription to install non-production systems without additional cost (if these are still available) and/or face paying for each and every core on every server).

      Since you currently get your Oracle license from SAP, chances are that you can negotiate some kind of migration pricing, which will likely be less expensive than buying licenses outright yourself elsewhere. However, again, you can't know until you get some quotes and compare.

    Matt explained it well.

    If you have license from Oracle then you can get new license from SAP/Microsoft (For MSSQL).

    If you have license from SAP then also you can get new license from SAP/Microsoft (For MSSQL).

    *In second case, it is easy to get because it's just like a replacement from SAP.

    In both the cases you should contact SAP, better contact your account manager.
