SAP heterogenous system copy over Oracle RAC 10g


I'm planning to do an export/import (Heterogenous copy) from Linux Suse with SAP ERP 6 and Oracle 10g to IBM AIX 6 with SAP ERP 6 - Oracle Rac 10g.

My first test export/import was done sucessfully using export/import migration monitor.

The problems are the post activities.

SAPinst doest not recognize the Oracle RAC. During the import, it is necessary create new tnsnames and Listener, drop the existing Database.

For SAPinst it only exist one database instances. The second instance of the Oracle RAC is empty, like Logs (Mirror and ORILogs) are not created during the import.

Is anyone there with this experince?

Thanks a lot

Nuno Almeida

    Hi Nuno,

    Check the statement in the note 527843 - Oracle RAC support in the SAP environment,

    You cannot currently use the SAP installation tool 'SAPINST' to perform a direct installation in an RAC configuration

    Best regards,

      Hi again,

      I already have this manual.

      The first instalation was based on this document and it was sucessfully.

      If I have undestood, the only way to use SAP with Oracle RAC is with a fresh installation.

      The last test that I have done, was:

      Export / import (Hetero) import on Oracle RAC ( recreate tnsnames, listener and INIT.ORA)

      Post activities

      SAP Works, with cluster IBM and 2 DI and Oracle RAC only works in one node.

      I will try to recreate the second node, manually or with CRS tools.

      Thanks a lot
