System copy after R3 4.7 to ECC6.0 EHP4 upgrade

Hi All,

I have some query regarding System copy of our upgraded system. We have upgraded our systems from R34.7 to ECC6.0 EHP4.

Below are our system specs


DB: DB2 9.5

Non-Unicode System

We want to now create a new SAP instance on our existing Sandbox system and we are planning to use the system copy method.

1. Is it preferable to use the Export/Import method or the Database restore method of System copy?

2. Is it possible to use the System copy procedure on a ECC6.0 EHP4 Non-Unicode system as I think the new installation masters only allow Unicode installations.

3. As we are executing the System Copy on the same system will there be any issues.

Else can you suggest any other method to create the new instance?

Any help is highly appreciated and we require it asap.
