      Hello Bala ,

      I one case it is possible to move (Expert Basis guy can take this task ) , still if you are changing the Hardware of the system the SAP license will get expired / void as hardware ID change .

    Hello Bala ,

    I guess you are talking about System Copy , using Homogeneous System Copy ( Same Database / Same Operating System ).

    You can take backup of existing system and restore the same on another system .

    You can install the new ( Temp ) System using the data of existing system .

    Please refer for Homogeneous Installation Guide for specific Release + OS + DB on http:
    service.sap.com\instguide.

    Regards ,

      Hello Bala,

      Yes it is kind of possible. What you are talking about is what happens in High Availability environments. But yes in this case you need to copy the disk contents and then make sure the hostname settings for both App and DB server remain intact.

      Hello Bala,

      In your case it may not be possible. What I was talking about was cluster set up but with SAP disk having crashed and SAP not running it may not be possible. You need to install SAP instance with the same SID and then restore the backup as suggested by Santosh. That is only possibilty in my opinion.

      Regards.
