    You don't necessarily have to use the old tablespace layout. Check note [777615 - Incorrect data class/database container assignment|https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/777615] and also the related notes mentioned there. Basically you have to correct the entries in TAORA/IAORA.

    If you want to do the system copy with the old layout, either do a database based copy (backup/restore) or change the DDLORA.TPL file when using sapinst. Use the search function and the documentation for more info on that-

    Cheers Michael

      Dear Michael-san,

      >- temporarily create a tablespace PSAPBTABI, reorg the objects to the correct tablespace (PSAPSR3) after the installation and >drop the tablespace

      I worked to do this, probrem was resolved.

      Thank you for your advance.
