Homogenous system copy on NW 7.4

Hi Experts,

I have a basic query. The constraint of performing System copy with Oracle DB can be done only if the backup is taken using brtools?

If the backup is of native Oracle backup taken using RMAN and TSM can we perform the System copy using backup/restore method.. Please clarify..

Also in Netweaver 7.4 with Oracle DB 11.2.0.4 SSFS is been implemented so what will be the post installation procedure to update/maintain the password of SAPSchema SAPSR3 user similar to updating OPS$<sidadm>, I am aware that SSFS the password of SAPUSER is stored in file system but how does the connection get established and what post installation step must be done after System copy on the target system.

Please share your experience..

Thanks

    Hi,

         No. You can do it using Oracle specific Backup tools as well.

         Best & Recommended is to use BRTools, which will make your work easier in Backup-Restore-Recovery.

    If the backup is of native Oracle backup taken using RMAN and TSM can we perform the System copy using backup/restore method..
            Yes.

         1. Select "Homogenous System Copy(Backup-Restore Method)" while performing system copy on Target Sys.

         2. When it prompts for restore - use your backup tools to restore and open the database.

         3. Continue with the rest of the part.

    thanks,

    Hi

    please find the below answers

    - yes you can use Oracle tools but it is always advisable to use Brtools.


    If the backup is of native Oracle backup taken using RMAN and TSM can we perform the System copy using backup/restore method.. Please clarify..


    yes


    using SWPM there are special options to handle such scenarios and  it will automatically take care of OP$ and SSFS mechanism. so dont worry


    select homogenous copy .. while selecting database select appropriate tools and it will take backup of the same and performs the same.
