Need/Want to perform a System Copy but


Hi everybody,

We are preparing our upgrade from 4.6C Win2K/SQLServer 2k to ECC6 Win2k3/SQLServer 2k5.

Got new HW, our landscape is still productive.

We thought about making an homogeneous system copy of our Prod to one of our new HW

then perform/test the upgrade.

But there are some troubles :

-according to the HSC docs we'll need the source CDs - unfortunately no way to find them

Support Package CD OK - Docs CDs OK but not kernel

-the kernel is not any more a 4.6c but a 4.6d

So here are my questions :

- will I need an installation kit for 4.6c ? How to get it ?

- does a copy of the usr directory will be enough ?

- does the difference between kernels versions will make troubles ?

- how many time (hours / 100Gb ) should I plann for the copy
