System copy from Non-MCOD to MCOD system

Hi

We have a situation where we need to do a system copy for the following scenario..

System - 1: Non-MCOD, SID=BW4

System - 2: MCOD, SID=BW1 & BW2

We would like to perform a system copy from BW4 to BW1..

Kindly highlight the steps..

Thanks & Regards

Madhu

    You found one of the many reasons why I would avoid using MCOD at all.

    I prefer having 2 databases on 1 system using their own databsaes... but that's just me.

    I would investigate usage of the homogeneous system copy guide from http://service.sap.com/INSTGUIDES

    this must be your only workaround.

    Good luck.

    Hi

    I have used the FROMUSER and TOUSER option of the IMPORT cmd to perform a system copy like you have described.

    Steps:

    1) Export BW4 (EXPORT USER=SAPBW4 ... )

    2) In MCOD database, delete/drop all objects belonging to SAPBW1. From memory, I think I found it easier to DROP USER SAPBW1 CASCADE and the recreate the SAPBW1 user.

    3) Import BW4 export (IMPORT FROMUSER=SAPBW4 TOUSER=SAPBW1 ..)

    I don't use MCOD anymore because it is such a pain to refresh the systems.

    Regards
