eSourcing Windows system copy

Hello Experts,

We have an eSourcing environment set up on a Windows server that is running the Oracle database for Netweaver, Netweaver, and the eSourcing application (the database for eSourcing is on a different server).

We would like to clone the entire Windows server to set up another instance of eSourcing for development, without having to reinstall everything (Oracle, Netweaver, etc).  If the server is cloned, there are things that have to be changed like anything that references an IP address, the SAP ID of the instance, and any server specific information in the Netweaver database.

Does anyone have information on how this can be done without having to do a full reinstall of the software?

We are on eSourcing version 9, SP18.  Netweaver 7.3.

Thank you,

    Hi Phil,

    I recently worked with a customer that had tried to do something similar only to run into many issues.  After two full weeks of trying to correct specific issues that we identified, we suggested to the customer that they should do a re-install.  They were back up and running successfully and within 24 hours.  My recommendation, based on this very recent experience, would be to do a full reinstall.  Although it might seem to take a little longer, in the end, I think it will be faster, less risky, and fewer corrections to be made.

    Thanks much,
