Copy MS SQL database to a new host server with a different SID (ABAP 700)


I'm going to copy a MS SQL database from a host server to a new server (Homogeneous SAP Systems) but with a different SID (old server - ER1 new server - ER2).

I'm using SAP ECC 6.0 with SAP_ABA & SAP_BASIS with 700 Release and according to note 683447 I cannot use SAP tools for MS SQL Server because it is not for this release:

"You cannot use this SAP tool to copy ABAP systems based on release 7.00 or later."

Is this true? Can any one confirm that I really can't use this tools with ABAP systems on release 700? If yes, can some one tell me what is the best practice ("step by step") for copy a database (Homogeneous copy) to a new server with a new SID.

    check 151603 :Copying an SQL Server database (homogeneous system copy)

    once you change SID you need to execute script which is attached to following note.

    551915 - R/3 won't start after database restore or database copy
