Portal SID Change

Hi

We have Enterprise Portal 7.x with Oracle 10.2 on AIX servers. This is a pure J2EE instance. Our current portal SID is "DEV".

We need to change this SID to "DMT".

Could anyone help us with the steps for changing the Portal SID (for a pure J2EE instance) ?

P.S: We do not have ABAP stack.

    Hi Aditya,

    Since the EP runs on a JAVA-Stack and it has a lot of information on the file system level - it is not easy to do it by maintaining properties or variables in files or in the JAVA-Stack. And even if you do this - you can never be sure that the EP system will come up properly after you have done this.

    The best approach will be to export the Enterprise Portal System using Jload (which is called via SAPINST) - this procedure not only takes care of your portal database but also the portal components at the file system level (used by SDM).

    Then use Jload (again called by SAPINST) to import the database into a new SID.

    The details are in the system copy guide at http://service.sap.com/instguides

    Let me know if this is sufficient or else I can elaborate.

    Please award points if this is useful.

    Thanks, Dibya

    There's lots of work to change the System ID of an j2ee-installation.

    You have to change windows services, environment variables, default/instance/start-profile, .properties-files etc.

    The far easiest way is to perform an system copy using the System Copy Guide.
