Reuse existing MaxDB datafiles during migration


Hello all,

We did test heterogeneous migration of the SAP system with MaxDB 7.7 using SAPInst together with Migration Monitor. Now we are planning to proceed with productive migration.

Creating of datafiles during test run took 4 hours, so I am interested if there is some how to reuse existing datafiles and logfiles of MaxDB. Because when I configure SAPInst and I define number of log volumes which I need, SAPInst is asking if I want to reuse the logfiles (I respond "OK"). But when I configure number of datafiles which I need, I just receive input error regarding not enough of free space.

Is there any way how to reuse these MaxDB datafiles and not deleting and recreating it ?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Best Regards,
