we have a NetWeaver 7.0 + ERP 6.0 system with MaxDB 7.7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 on VMware ESXi 4.1. Everything is on a NetApp storage system.
The database and LOG are on separate iSCSI LUNs, the operating system and SAPEXE are on separate virtual VMware hard drives (vmdk).
I want to install a new test system (system copy). With the NetApp system, it is possible to clone the database and LOG LUNs on storage level. I want to clone the database and LOG LUNs from a existing system and use them for the new test system.
Is that possible?
Can I clone a database and LOG on storage level and use it for a different system?
What is necessary after cloning? Change SID? Other tasks?
Thank you very much
