system copy and upgrade questions

dear gurus

i have one production box

R/3 version 4.6c

kernel 4.6D sp 1913

DB version Oracle 8.1.7.4.0

OS version Solaris 9

1st QUESTION

if i want to do system copy to new box

with

R/3 version 4.6c

kernel 4.6D sp 1913

DB version Oracle 8.1.7.4.0

OS version Solaris 10 (changed from solaris 9 to 10)

do i need to do homogenous system copy or heterogenous ?

is there any issues between 4.6c and solaris 10 ?

2nd question

if 1st question above is not possible, I want to do homogenous system copy with

R/3 version 4.6c

kernel 4.6D sp 1913

DB version Oracle 8.1.7.4.0

OS version Solaris 9

after that i will upgrade Oracle to 10 and SAP to ECC 6, is it possible to use ECC6 and Solaris 9 ? or do I need to upgrade to Solaris 10 ?

thanks

    Hi,

    If you have already installed SAP in your new Box, configure RFC and copy the client u required.

    Hi,

    can we run ECC 6 on Solaris 9 ?

    You can run ECC6.0 on solaris 9, it is possible.

    can we run 4.6c on Solaris 10

    You can run 4.6C on Solaris 10. It is possible.

    Please let me know if you need more information on the same.

    Thanks

    Going from Solaris 9 to 10 is considered by SAP as homogeneous system copy so you should have no problem at all.

    Just do the Homo system copy in Solaris 10 and then upgrade Oracle to 10 preparing for the upgrade process.

      Hi AC,

      thanks for the reply !

      since we already decide to use the approach below (for system copy)

      -


      source system

      R/3 version 4.6c 64-bit

      kernel 4.6D sp 1913

      DB version Oracle 8.1.7.4.0 64-bit

      OS version Solaris 9 64-bit

      target system

      install Solaris 10 64-bit + patches

      install Oracle 10.2.0.4 64-bit + patches

      install R/3 version 4.6c 64-bit (central instance)

      update kernel to latest 4.6d_EXT or 4.6d_EX2 before installing DB instance

      install db instance (using R3load dump from system copy

      start SAP

      upgrade to ECC6 sr2 + patches (sr2 because we dont want unicode, sr3 installation must be unicode)

      -


      I have another question.. where to download latest r3setup ? i read in note that we must use latest r3setup for solaris based system.

      the path in service.sap.com/swdc a bit confusing 😔

      thanks !
