BW system copy in MSCS


Dear gurus,

we would like to copy our BW (NW 7.0 EHP1 system, Abap+Java) with Sapinst system copy procedure. Source system is a Windows MSCS environment with Oracle For dabase export we use backup/restore specific tools. We try to use Sapinst in source system for the export of Java file system resources, so we use "central instance export" from "High-availability system/Based on As Abap and As Java" folder. We start Sapinst with "sapinst.exe SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME=<virtualhost_of_CI>". But:

- we don't get option for "use database specific tools"

- Sapinst only require profile directory and export location

- In phase "execution service" we get only 3 steps: "central instance export", "update system dlls", "prepare to export java"

- Sapinst ends with no error and in the export location we have only subdir Java with 3 files (LABEL.ASC, LABELIDX.ASC, SOURCE.PROPERTIES).

Any idea?

Best regards
