Overview of Tasks for SAP NW731 System Copy – Java

Below is an overview of the tasks associated with an SAP NW731 system copy for Java on Windows with MS SQL Server (see the ABAP tasks here).  Essentially, this is what I document when I go through the process:

  • Current Base Details (Kernel version etc)
  • Current Profile Files
  • Source Server IDs (Java node IDs)
  • Current J2EE License
  • Current SSL Certificates (export PSEs)
  • Current Database Files
  • Source Database Files
  • Source Disk Usage
  • Target Disk Capacity
  • Current SQL Server Version
  • Current Windows Hotfixes
  • Detach Old Target Database
  • Delete Old Database Files
  • Create Additional Data File Locations
  • Restore Database as Target
  • Rename Logical Files (MS SQL Server)
  • Deploy SWPM
  • Start Java SCS
  • Launch SWPM

Follow standard system copy doc:

  • Adjust server Ids (Java node Ids)
  • Restart Central Instance
  • Remove Old SSL Key Store Views
  • Re-Generate Certificates
  • Re-Configure SSO
  • Database Stats Collection
  • Configure & Schedule Database Backup
  • Adjust Default Database Connection for <sid>adm User
