Can we restore the system?

Dear All:

The system is CRM5.0 Unicode based on JAVA+ABAP stack. When we get

the backup files, it contains DB files (SQL Server detach files)

and whole copy of \usr\sap\<SID> folder (including DVEBMGS51,

SCS50, SYS). And we also get the info that the source system is

Windows + MSSQL.

We tried to use Homogeneous system copy method to restore. The DB can

successfully attached.

We tried to select: Target System -> System Copy-> Java + ABAP

but we don't have the Java Export file.

We tried to select: Target System -> System Copy-> ABAP,

in step: CreateStdSchema, report error.

Here we are wondering if we still have chance to restore the system

with those files, maybe partial is OK, such as only ABAP part.

You help or any info will be highly appreciated!

Thanks a lot!

Best Regards,

D.H

    Systems copies of systems with Java (may it ABAP + Java or just Java) must be done using sapinst.

    An ABAP system stores all information in the database, there it´s enough to copy the database.

    A Java instance is different. Many necessary files are stored on the filesystem - including configurations on how to access the database and depending which software is installed on top a lot of properties files. You can also not just copy those since they will contain references to the original instance (hostname, SID etc.).

    An export done by sapinst and later re-imported by sapinst has the "magic" to change all those system dependent things for the target system.
