DataSource in BI7 upgrade

We upgrade (techincal upgrade) the 3.x Version to BI7, it is true that we must have to Replicate and Activate all the existing Data Source again in BI7? i.e. go to RSA1 ->DataSource ->Right click on each Applicatioin Component and select Replicate Metadata?

Please advise...Thank you.

    How to upgrade:

    1. Identify the Root-InfoProvider

    2. Create Transformations based on existing UpdateRules below the Root-InfoProvider and

    all other InfoProviders below.

    3. Refresh the tree in the DWB if the newly created Transformation can not be seen immediately.

    4. Check syntax and recommendations and activate the Transformation.

    5. Check if all TransferRules which have to be migrated are active and all required source system releases are connected

    6. Create Transformations based on existing TransferRules below the Root-InfoProvider and all

    all other InfoProviders below.

    7. Test the new objects

    8. Delete the UpdateRules

    9. Delete the TransferRules

    10. Check if there are still TransferRules referring to the DataSource. If so, the dataflow containing these objects has to be migrated as well.

    11. Delete the 3.x InfoSource. If there are still UpdateRules referring to the 3.x InfoSource you will

    be informed via popup. Cancel the deletion in this case.

    12. Migrate the DataSource.

    Undo Migration of DataSources

    Use transaction RSDS for recreating the 3.x DataSource (see note 945229) for details.

    Best regards,
