Heterogeneous System copy allow Upgrade to 64bit o/s and Oracle 10G


Hello All,

What is the best way to upgrade from 32bit to 64 bit os environment for 4.6 - ECC 6.0?

My approach would be:

I want to upgrade from 4.6 to 4.7 Enterprise. 4.7 is still a 32 bit environment right, so I can do a

System Copy using R3Setup and R3Load procedure within set up.

First I will upgrade Oracle to Oracle 10G, on new 64 bit indows OS, then I will do a system copy

from 4.6 System , export to a directory, then use R3Setup /R3Load on new machine to import.

Then on new machine I need to configure new instance, install Liscense as it is new machine etc.

If I want to upgrade from 4.6 to ECC 6.0 I can use the R3Trans to do a system copy on from 32bit

to 64 bit, again I set up O/s and DB first on target machine and then import via R3Load.

If I want after I can use the Sap upgrade program to do a combined Upgrade and Unicode conversion of

the system from 4.6 to ECC 6.0.

Your input would be greatly appreciated.
