SAP Solution Manager 7.2 AIX to Migrate Suse Linux

Hello SAP Experts,

I am supposed to install a new Solution Manager on Linux. Since I am still new to the SAP Basis environment, I am not quite sure how to do it best way.
I tried to plan the system using the Maintenance Planner. But the MP only gives me the opportunity to update the software via the SUM.
I can't plan a new system either, because this system already exists.
I could now download the SWPM and try to start the installation over it. But I don't have all the related packages there.
Which option would you best suggest to me?

Many thanks for your support.

Mario

    Hello Mario

    the heterogeneous system copy based on export/import is the preferred option.

    the system copy of a SAP Solution Manager 7.2 is the most complex copy scenario, as the instance is an MCOD (multiple components one database)

    another option is to separate the ABAP export from the SolMan JAVA Instance.

    Please Note that the Task List SAP_SOLMAN_BASIS_SETUP (Task List Group - SAP_SYSTEM_CONFIGURATION) is not compatible with the Task List SAP_BASIS_COPY_INITIAL_CONFIG (Task List Group - SAP_SYSTEM_REFRESH) and other Task List's from this Group.
    So make sure, you use the Task Lit's from the suitable Task List Group, otherwise you have to manually to the System Copy Post work.

    Hi Mario,

    You could consider export-import for changing the Operating System. You may check this for better understanding - https://blogs.sap.com/2019/10/31/sap-os-upgrade-from-aix-to-linux-part1/
