EHP4 - tricks to minimize run time?

I have requirement to build many new ECC6 EHP4 systems (new implementation).

Steps taken:

1. Install new ecc6 ehp1

2. Upgrade using sapehpi to ehp4

Question:

1. How can I clone the first system already in ehp4 to avoid the above steps?

2. How to avoid re-extracting SP by utilizing the /EHPI/abap dir from previous installation?

3. Can we utilize the xml file from previous installation to skip mopz selecting the SP again? (the optimizer is still presenting all SP from all components, meaning I have to compare & select based on the first system), is it as simple as copy & modify the xml file?

Thanks

    If the target system is not a production system you can simly use the system copy procedure:

    System Copy and Migration

    Not tried that but according to the documentation it should be possible. Neverless, the extraction procedure is not something that is significant for the total runtime.

    If you selected the new target system during your MOPZ run, yes. If no, then you need to recreate the XML. The XML does not only contain the SID but also installation numbers etc. You may, however, be able to change that all manually.
