System Copy with the db up and SAP down



The last time I had run a system copy on source system (export),

I was able to perform it with the db up and sap r3 down.

Is it still possible to perform the same way with SWPM?

If I run the following:

-> SAP Business Suite 7 SR1

--> Enhancement Package 4 for SAP ERP 6.0

---> SAP Application Server ABAP

----> Software Life-Cycle Options

-----> System Copy

------> Oracle

-------> Source System Export

--------> Central System

---------> Based on AS ABAP

----------> Database Instance Export

I have the following error:


An exception occurred while connecting to the message server instance PRD/DVEBMGS00 on host xxx, port 13900. DIAGNOSIS: The original exception was: Connect to message server (xxx/13900) failed: MSENILAYER.. SOLUTION: Make sure that the message server is started.


Thanks in advance for your answer.
