System Copy from one server to another


I am trying a poc to do a system copy from one server to another.

I have 2 servers say ABC and XYZ (both 7.0)

i took the copy of server ABC and i am using that copy on XYZ.

while doing target copy on XYZ i am using the export of ABC.

i was able to do it successfully, but the issue now is when i open the SLD,ESR,ID,RWB.. etc of XYZ server it opens the link of ABC server and not of XYZ server.

Please tell me how to resolve it.

    So you're talking about a Java instance? If yes, then it's not enough to just copy the database.

    You have to use the system copy procedure described in detail in the system copy guides.

    You will export the content of the database (or use backup/restore) and sapinst will craete a ZIP file with all the settings and then run a migration toolkit to change the values from OLDSID to NEWSID.

    Java instances store lots of settings and information in the filesystem, this must be changed, otherweise you use the settings of the source system.

    Basically below are the post refresh steps for PI

    1) maintain SLD - RZ70, /sld, Visual Admin - SLD

    2) test SM59 PI specific RFC such as CTSDEPLOY, PMIAF_af, INTEGRATION


    4) PI exchange profile ->

    5) VA - SAP XI AF CPA CACHE -> Change to the correct hostname

    6) Delete adapter Engine cache

    7) Refresh system cache

    8) ensure you can open integration builder and integration repository.

    Is not that straight forward task for PI refresh especially changed of host name.

      Issue resolved.

      I had to change the parameter values in Exchange profile. It worked.
