ECC6.0 System Copy from 32-Bit to 64-Bit



We have a hardware migration project for ECC6.0 production system from windows 2003 32-bit to windows 2003 64-bit .

Here is the systems environments

Production System (Source System)

Component Version

Hardware 32-bit Intel Xeon (x86)

Operating System 32-bit Windows 2003 R2 SP2

Database Oracle 32-bit

SAP Kernel 700 32-bit PL 133

Software Component Release Level Highest Support Package

SAP_BASIS 700 0011 SAPKB70011

SAP_ABA 700 0011 SAPKA70011

SAP_BW 700 0012 SAPKW70012

SAP_AP 700 0008 SAPKNA7008

SAP_HR 600 0015 SAPKE60015

SAP_APPL 600 0008 SAPKH60008

Target System

Component Version

Hardware 64-bit Intel Xeon (x64)

Operating System 64-bit Windows 2003 R2 SP2

Database Oracle 64-bit

SAP Kernel 700 64-bit PL 133

We can do this task using Homogeneous system copy.My question is:

1) The current package Level of source system is 0011. do I have to upgrade the Package level in source system first then start the system copy. As per the Basis guy support package level 0011 is incompatible with Microsoft 2008 64-bit.

and we might face lot of issues while applying support packages, so he is recommending to go for Windows 2003 64-bit.

2) Source system component version is : ECC6.0, so it means the Netweaver version is 2004s or 7.0??

Please share your experiences.
