Question about options System Copy Sap NW 7.0

I have read the Guide System Copy 7.0 and I have a question. Imagining that in the target host, there is a SAP installed in Cluster, before system copy. In the import phase, would like to execute only the option import the database (option Database Instance )? Or Is it possible for the target host to perform only the import database or is it mandatory to perform the SAP installation again? Is there restriction or any tips?

    In case of system copy, and you want to use same SID , then you will have to uninstall the instance already there on target host & perform system copy with import database from export. You will have to install Central services separately.

    Hi Antonio,

    if you have a fully running HA system with ASCS, ERS, DB, PAS and optionally additional application server then it is fine to take the export dump and only perform the "database instance" step.
    During the SWPM run you have to choose "remove database and recreate".

    Your new system will run with the old ASCS, ERS, PAS and so on and the new database with data from the export dump.

    Best regards,
    Andreas

    To be more specific I have this situation below

    if I have a fully running HA system with ASCS, ERS, DB, PAS ( eg: NW 702 ABAP layer / Oracle ) on the target host with success !!!

    But I would like just to “export” a DB from HP-UX and “import” this DB on Linux (Heterogeneous) with the same SID.

    I wouldn´t like to fix/change anything in the SAP installation.

    1) Is there any option in SWPM to execute just this import task ?

    2) In the SWPM 1.0 SPS18, for the import on target host, has the option Database Instance (inside HA).

    Is it possible to execute only this option for the import data

    Any sugentions ?

    If the source and target systems are on the same release then it should be enough just to perform the import on the target node.
