ABAP+JAVA system copy using 3rd party export/import tools


Hi all,

I am trying to do a homogenous system copy. I am following the syscopy guide for SAP NW 7.0 SR3 ABAP+JAVA systems

We are running AIX 5.L and Oracle.

My question is this. We are using an IBM XiV system for our disk storage, and we are able to restore from "snaps" which is their version of images. Does anyone know if it is possible to restore or "import" the data in a system copy using an outside tool like this? If so, do you have any information on how to?

I know it is possible to restore the database from an offline backup using BRTools rather than r3load and jload, and I just wanted to see if I can restore from a snap as it would save a lot of time in the procedure.

Any help or ideas would be much appreciated.
