MaxDB Backup restore from 7.6 to 7.9

106 Views Last edit Oct 23 at 08:03 PM 4 rev

Hi Experts,

Currently we are having an non-sap application which is running on the MaxDB 7.6 version and recently we have decided to upgrade the database and move to the AWS from our physical server. So, as per the SAP suggestion in the note 129352 we have tried restoring the lower version backup on to the higher version target system. But unfortunately we have ended up in the error below error while restoring the backup file on the target system. The size of the backup is around 2.2 TB.

-3068 Mismatch of parameter configuration between backup and instance OData recovery failed 2W36,Parameter

UseMuItiVersionReadSupport not found Servertask Info: because Error in backup task occured Job I (Backup / Restore Medium Task)

[executing] WaitingT22 Result: 5224 Error in backup task occured. Error code 5224 "wrong_configuration"

On the target system:

The parameter UseMultiVersionReadSupport was set to NO.

The param_checkall was ok.

Can you please let us know if it is possible to restore the 7.6 backup on the 7.9 version MaxDB system which was already build on the AWS machine with the same OS and architecture? If Yes, how can we bypass this error?

Also let us know if there is any way to download the 7.6 MaxDB software just to build an test system (so we can also test the in-place upgrade) as we only have the prod system as of now and dont want to do any changes there directly.
