System Copy with Changed SID

Hi,

I am trying to change SID during the system copy of CRM 5.0 using NW 7.0 SR3.

I have the DB from source with DB SID 'ABC' with the SAP SID 'ABC'.

Now, I am trying to copy 'ABC' system to 'XYZ' system with keeping same DB 'ABC'.

I have the DB attached with SQL server, but when I run target systme installation using SAPinst, it gives me this schema related error and wouldn't take go forward from stage 2: Define Parameters.

The error is:

INFO 2009-05-22 12:06:39.802

Execute step dGetSchemas of component |NW_Doublestack_OneHost|ind|ind|ind|ind|0|0|NW_Onehost_System|ind|ind|ind|ind|2|0|NW_CreateDBandLoad|ind|ind|ind|ind|10|0|NW_CreateDB|ind|ind|ind|ind|0|0|NW_MSS_DB|ind|ind|ind|ind|2|0|MssSchemaInfo|ind|ind|ind|ind|0|0

ERROR 2009-05-22 12:06:40.505

FCO-00011 The step dGetSchemas with step key |NW_Doublestack_OneHost|ind|ind|ind|ind|0|0|NW_Onehost_System|ind|ind|ind|ind|2|0|NW_CreateDBandLoad|ind|ind|ind|ind|10|0|NW_CreateDB|ind|ind|ind|ind|0|0|NW_MSS_DB|ind|ind|ind|ind|2|0|MssSchemaInfo|ind|ind|ind|ind|0|0|dGetSchemas was executed with status ERROR .

Please help with any suggestions and ideas on what I am missing here.

Thank you.

    Hello,

    In this case, you have to choose the option for 'custom' installation

    when running Sapinst. This option will allow you to, for example,

    specify which is the correct database instance. If you choose the option

    for 'standard' installation, then the Sapinst will take the very first

    SQL Server instance because in a standard installation, normally

    there's only one instance.

    regards,

    John Feely

    G'day - I just encountered exactly same error "FCO-00011 The step dGetSchemas with step key <etc>" when system copying a BW system (NW 7.0 SR2 on MSSQL Server 2005)

    Here was how I got around it:

    Production is being copied back to a different SID on a test server, into an existing database that already contains another, ECC6, SAP database.

    I tried typical vs custom parameter settings in sapinst - still stopping with this error.

    Resolution was to come out of sapinst, restore the database -> the new SID name, then rerun sapinst & continue the old installation.

    This time no problems, it didn't stop at the 'create & load database' phase to ask for restore, saw it was already there & carried right on.

    Did you try using the advice in note : 551915.

    I have tried this a while back, it worked perfectly.

    But i am 99% certain it was not dual stack system.

    If you have time and resources, take a backup and give a go.

    Dear,

    You can use follow r3load process for system copy. You can use Sourse system option running Sapinst.exe run. When you set target system at time YOU HAVE TO SET NEW SID I.E XYZ.

    this process is helpfull fo you .

    Thanks,

    I was having the same error when doing system copy from the backup of SAP production system to create a sandbox system,

    Following worked for me: -

    I stopped the sapinst at error,

    deleted my earlier restored database,

    restored the database,

    restarted sapinst for system copy at target system,

    carried on with old installation.

    This way error did not reoccur.

    Thanks,

    Rajeev Sharma.
