I would like to skip R3COPY(it made me a few grey hairs 3 years ago)

I have an R/3 4.7x2 Solaris/oracle system. Basically I have an consolidation system (3 years old).made by R3COPY.

Is there a shorcut to avoid R3copy procedure with installation..(some procedure of copy only...)

    R3COPY is a relic from R3SETUP. Nowadays, installation of 4.7 are done using sapinst and the corresponding ORABRCOPY.

    Check the system copy guides at

    http://service.sap.com/systemcopy, they have at least two procedures to copy a system.

    consider using a system copy using the backup/restore method, it is much easier and less hassles.

    the following doc gives you a good idea of the procedure:

    If I understood correctly “http://www.basisconsultant.com/docs/handbooks/homcopyv1.pdf” not being familiar with Oracle online/offline backup. Instead usually I stop SAP and database and copy :

    /oracle

    /usr/sap

    /sapmnt

    /usr/users/ recover database using backup controlfile until cancel;

    • Tina,

      those are basically the steps.

      this procedure does not take JAVA stack into account, you are probably just using the ABAP stack now, so this ain`t an issue.

      if your system is using schema SAP[SID] instead of SAPR3, you wil lstill be using the original SID... same goes with tablespace names.

      so, if you started with SAP R/4 4.6c or below, and then upgrade to 4.7, this won`t be an issue.

      by the way, read the following topic:
