Could not find the “Generic Installation Options” in SWPM?

After performing a system copy, you must perform the post steps but could find the “Generic Installation Options” in SWPM?


Check note 1890950! 🙂

Checking SAP Note 1680045, you notice there are two different versions of the SWPM:

  • 70SWPM*.SAR

Checking SAP Note 683447, you can see the tools are only available in the SWPM*.SAR (not 70SWPM*.SAR):

o Run the SAP Tools for MS SQL Server on the central instance host.
You have to use the SWPM for 7.3+ (SWPM.SAR, not 70SWPM.SAR) in
all cases – even when you are performing the task for a SAP
NetWeaver 7.0x system (e.g. SAP EHP4 for SAP ERP 6)
