MDM 7.1 installation / system copy

Hi,

New to MDM administration here so please help. I have a MDM 7.1 Production system running on windows and ms sql. Now i need to create a new QA system as a copy of this prod system. I am confused as to whether i should use the archive/unarchive procedure to move the repository content or shall i use the SQL backup/restore to copy the DB. I have about 8-9 small DBs in my MDM system -- around 1 GB each and I have one big DB around 200 GB that I believe has all the master data.

Shall i first copy the DBs and then do MDM installation or shall i only do a fresh install and then archive/unarchive the repositories ?? will archive/unarchive bring over all my data and configuration like connections to PI, ECC system etc ?


Also, i would like to know how to modify the connections etc in MDM to point to the correct QA systems after a system copy ?


Thanks,


BV

    Hi,

    You may refer to refresh steps explained in the thread

    Even though it is for 5.5 but it should work.

    Additionally refer to Admin guide for MDM 7.1

    http://www.packtpub.com/sites/default/files/2145EN-Chapter-3-Accessing-the-MDM-System.pdf

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

      Deepak, the link that you are referring to talks about refreshing an existing system. Also, it does not clarify as to what all Databases need to be refreshed.


      For me, this is going to be a new QA system and I am trying to understand the sequence of steps involved.

      Thanks RB and KJ.

      I am a little confused about the different databases that come into play in a MDM system ? Is it correct that there are following 3 DBs involved:

      1. Main database that we use during the installation

      2. DB that holds master data or is this the same db as # 1 ?

      2. Repository databases


      Also, do we have to export any JAVA SDM data using sapinst like we do when we copy other JAVA systems like portal, bw etc ?
