Livecache refresh for diff version on target & source.

Hi Experts,

We are planning to refresh one of our old test SCM system with production data. Versions are as below.

Target SCM - SCM 7 EHP2. Target LC - 7.7.07

Source SCM - SCM 7 EHP3. Source LC - 7.9.21

For SCM version part I think target will automatically get the source version after ABAP system refresh. But for LC according to note 457425 versions should be same on source & target. I am planning to install LC 7.9 on target server then upgrade patch to 7.9.21 & then restore the backup from production.

So if i follow this course of action still do I need to follow the step1 'Select the menu option Instance -> Install' from DBMGUI or I can directly go to backup restore from production.

Also I am taking a complete LC backup from production using db studio. So I think I need to restore it again using DB studio only. Note 457425 is giving steps for DBMGUI so can I get the simillar steps for dbstudio anywhere?

I am taking a complete backup of production. So is there any specific requirement while taking a backup for LC refresh to restore on other system than the same database.

Kindly let me know if you have any inputs on these queries as I am bit confused at this point for this

    Hi Amar,

    I understand that you're taking care of making your SCM and liveCache on target being at least the same version of your source. This is good, because it is the only way it would work (supported).

    Now about the restore process, the central note for this is:

    886103 - System Landscape Copy for SAP SCM

    And for the liveCache part of the copy:

    457425 - Homogeneous liveCache copy using backup/restore

    For the backup/restore process you can use the Database Studio. Maybe we need to update SAP Note 457425 to put this in context. Thanks for bringing to attention.
