Solution Manager 7.1 renaming by SWPM

Hi Experts,

Recently I was given with Solution manager 7.1 image taken from another system. The system was renamed using SWPM. When I started the configuration I was plagued with lot of errors. I was wasting lot of time in troubleshooting the system. Is this method of renaming a Solution Manager using SWPM is a proper way? or Is there any SAP snote which has information on using SWPM for Solution Manager. The Solution Manager has lot of residue values like old SID and hostname.


Suresh Daniel.

    That is where the System Rename option comes for in SWPM. Now to understand your scenario a little bit better, would like to know the following,

    1. You said image, was it server imaging, if that is the case then that scenarios are totally non-SAP & are carried out by the following vendors, say like HP is providing an system-imaging process for SAp, then that matter HP will resolve at their own risk, not to be alerted/bothered SAP even for that.

    2. The renamed system was running fine or not, as you mentioned Renamed, in 2nd Sentence.

    3. Or in the new system you are renaming everything?

    4. What are those errors? example

    5. Required follow Installation & System-Copy Guides.

    6. If in the new system its installed & Up for activity, then initially we would do a post-task for installation like cleaning up buffers & temp-files like through using Note 1610716

    7. The Export dump was generated for that? If this is the case then any issues during dump generation, did you use the latest SWPM with higher than NW7.0x or used the 70swpm for that?

    8. What was the used kernel during those processes?

    8. Lastly for getting the systems corrected, we are getting paid by our correspondence companies, so for those post tasks only we are assigned to this kind of jobs

    Can go on.. but would love to hear 1st from your side.

    Hi Suresh,

    At present there is no specific note/option for renaming/system copy of Solution Manager. It needs to be done like any other dual stack system but considering all the configurations/connections it won't be easy task.

    After system copy/rename there will be lot of residual configuration left with old SID, etc..

    Better to install altogether new system and perform the configuration from scratch.
