How to change name of application server (SAP SID) in the backup restore .


Hi All,

For upgrade purpose, we need to set up a system which will be a copy of development sysetm. Now as decided we will copy database with backup resotre method of system copy and the oracle dba will restore it on a new hardware with different db-id.

But we also need to have SAP application server (ci) on on that new hardware with some different sap id (i.e. different from development system and same as database id).

Can we do it by copy the existing relevant directories from existing development system and then rename the directories and sap sid on the new hardware ? Is it possible ? If yes how to do it and if NO is there any other solution.

Please help.
