R/3 4.6c NUC on AIX 6.1/Oracle 10.2.0.5 upgrade to ECC 6 EHP7 NUC on SLES 12/Oracle 12.2.01

Good day

We are running R/3 4.6c NUC on AIX 6.1/Oracle 10.2.0.5 which we want to upgrade to ECC 6 EHP7 NUC on SLES 12/Oracle 12.2.0.1 and would like to test the upgrade/migration procedure. DB size is 6 TB.

Complication/reason behind the move is that our company was divested and now we need to migrate the system from being hosted by our former parent company (in the US) to a local hosting solution in South Africa.

What would be the cleanest approach to achieve the above steps also considering the needed transfer of 6+ TB database over the Atlantic?

Best regards

Ruan

    The best approach is to use the SWPM Tool and execute a heterogen system copy. But to transfer the 6TB database you need a very good network or export the data in disks and transfer these to onsite for the import.

    Also in any case I would not use NUC anymore as on one hand it is outdated and on the other hand SAP supports new installations only in UC.
