System rename procedure now also available for systems based on SAP NetWeaver 7.3x and higher


After the last versions supported the system rename of systems based on SAP NetWeaver 7.0x (and of SAP Search and Classification (TREX) 7.10), the latest version of the system rename procedure available with Software Logistics toolset 1.0 SPS 08 now also supports the rename of systems based on SAP NetWeaver 7.3x and SAP NetWeaver 7.4 – for more information, see SAP Note 1619720. That is, you can use the tool to perform the following procedures:

  • Changing the SAP system ID (SAPSID), database ID, instance number, or hostname (or any combination of these parameters) for existing SAP systems
  • Based on:
    • SAP NetWeaver 7.0 , SAP NetWeaver 7.0 including EHP1, EHP2, and EHP3
    • SAP NetWeaver 7.3, SAP NetWeaver including EHP1 and SAP NetWeaver 7.4 (new with Software Logistics Toolset 1.0 SPS 08)
    • SAP Search and Classification (TREX) 7.10 on Linux and Microsoft Windows

As a consequence, the system rename tool is now offered via two archives, both available for download today via

  • For systems based on SAP NetWeaver 7.0x, download: 
    70SYSRENAME10SP<support package number>_<patch level>*.SAR
  • For systems based on SAP NetWeaver 7.3x and SAP NetWeaver 7.4, download:

      Hello Boris,

      thanks for sharing the Information's with us.

      I see in the note 1619720, that the "MCOD System renaming is not supported"

      We have a MCOD System, which I want to rename it until End of Nov.2016.

      Is it possible, that a new version of SWPM comes out until End Nov.2016, which also support MCOD renaming?

      If Not, Do you know, which method is the easiest and best way to rename a MCOD System? Just a Note, we can not use LVM because of company restrictions.

      Thnaks in advance.
