Hi, I need to know if somebody have experience with Data Movement (Shadow Copy) from a server to another server, between two SAP IQ instances, if it work successfully? I´m asking this because we have problem starting the IQ after the shadow copy.

Thanks for your help

    Leandro,

    Yes, it works quite well and has for 15 years. When things fail it usually has to do with running the wrong kind of backup, not running an IQ based backup, or not moving over all necessary files.

    What was the process that you used? Send your IQ and OS commands so that we can debug.

    Thanks Mark, we could finally start the IQ after the shadow copy but copying manually a few files (.db and .log), that according I read to must be in FS. Actually we thought it might be more direct, so we 'll see if we handle some other options as DS or log shipping.


    Thanks.
