    This is how you should proceed.

    1. Take a full backup of your production - make sure it is successful.

    As you cannot use the sql server detach/attach from production - you will have to do a backup and restore.

    2. Uninstall your quality - the uninstall steps are there in the installation guide.

    3. Install your QAS using SAPINST as per the homogeneous system copy installation guide. And select the option db using "backup/restore" when SAPINST asks for it.

    4. Restore the database using the production backup and logs via the SQL Server Enterprise Manager.

    5. You will have to change your schema names by following the sap note 551915 - this is only needed if your SAP system uses the MCOD convention of the form SAP<SID>.

    Also, check these SAP Notes 151603, 193816for a SQL Server Copy.

    Hope this helps.
