    Dear Anil,

    If you are planning to perform System copy then you can refer SAP note: 457425 - Homogeneous liveCache copy using backup/restore

    If you are simply want to do backup and restore, then you can do by using SAP Max db command ir DBM GUI for which you can find many of Standard SAP help document.

    I would generally open MaxDB database Studio to run backup for that purpose. Also adding on the above would love to guide you to (which is including the notes no too),

    LiveCache complete data backup on FILE is failing. | SCN

    Backup to Livecache | SCN

    Live cache backup | SCN

    • As you know similar to any database, like in BRTOOLS for Oracle also, you will be able to see the different types of backups taken, like Full Online or Offline, Incremental or Incremental Delta. So based on the kind of back ups you available to restore you can Follow steps to Redirect Restore or Roll-Forward or here can-be a Point-In-Time Recovery. So it all depends what are the backups available to restore because as you know you will do the restore from the available backups. I am sure the team you have mentioned is familiar with these methods because in general, the team which is responsible for taking backup, that same team will only in times of need do the restore/recovery. They are, I think, in your case just handing over the completed backup files for safe-keeping only, so that in case required to restore, you will be able to provide/present those required backup files to them.
