TIP: How to stop OS/DB Migration before Import Phase?
If you’re doing a migration to a database which is installed by SAPINST (like Sybase ASE), and you need to apply certain patches and kernel updates before import, then you’d better to stop process before ABAP/Java import phase.
Here, if the case is kernel application and the minimum required Kernel Patch is supplied with packaged Kernel Patches (SAPEXE…..SAR, SAPEXEDB_…SAR), you can modify the kernel DVD and add latest kernel packs into DVD. But if the latest pack not enough and you’ve to apply the latest disp+work (dw_….sar) and database library (libdbsl_…sar) you’ve to stop the import before abap/java import.
It is very easy to stop import 😆
Just enter a wrong migration key during SAPINST configuration steps.
Here I used hedehode which has a similar meaning to blabla 😉
