Hi all,

This document is the first part of step by step system copy instructions SCM 7.0 based on NW7.01 (with LiveCache). Linux is x86_64bits and DB2 version is 10.1 FixPack3.

To prevent some misunderstandings and increase readibility, I prepared 3 seperate documents for DB2 restore and LiveCache MaxDB restore.

This part contains sapinst steps from the beginning until the “exit to restore DB2”. Second part contains DB2 restore (from Snapshot) steps and third part contains LiveCache system copy instructions.

For the second part, that contains DB2 restore steps. go to link: SCM 7.0 (with LiveCache) DB2 Linux system copy-Part2/3 (DB2 restore)

For the third part, that contains LiveCache MaxDB restore screenshots and specific LC information, go to link : SCM 7.0 (with LiveCache) DB2 Linux system copy-Part3/3 (LiveCache restore)

IMPORTANT: Get the latest system copy guide from service.sap.com/instguides before you begin to execute the process. This document is designed as a secondary one, besides official system copy guide!

service.sap.com/instguides -> Alphabetical Index “S” ->SCM Server -> Using SCM 7.0 Server -> Installation Guides -> Select Linux and DB2.

SSID=Source SID

TSID=Target SID

Installation DVDs can be downloaded from Software Downloads | SAP Support Portal -> Inst. and Upgrades -> Alphabetical Index “S” ->SCM -> SCM 7.0 -> Installation -> Based on NW 7.01 .

  • Download the latest version of SWPM from service.sap.com. I used this one : SWPM10SP07_6-20009701.SAR . After executing ./sapinst with root, point the path to SCM 7.0 system copy , like in the following screenshot.

  • My source livecache and ABAP instances are on the same server. Below you see the target system filesystems.

  • Enter target SID and FQDN. You can check your FQDN from /etc/hosts file. Then enter master password.

  • Since we use snapshot backup to copy DB, select second option:

  • Enter target DB TSID, ABAP schema user of source system, db2TSID password and other passwords. For ABAP schema user, you can check from source system via SAP GUI: System–>Status–>DB Owner (On the bottom right corner)

  • Provide system numbers and mark “Interrup before start”. I chose this, in order to make some arrangements (eg. removing BTC processes to prevent background jobs to be executed immediately after system start). Provide source system 000 client DDIC password.

  • Provide LiveCache instance essential information. LiveCache user is SAP<LiveCacheSID>:

  • Then you can see the a summary of parameters you have already provided. Have a look and start the process. It runs until “Exit to restore database”:

To prevent some misunderstandings and increase readibility, I prepared 2 seperate documents for DB2 restore and LiveCache MaxDB restore.

For the second part, that contains DB2 restore steps. go to link: SCM 7.0 (with LiveCache) DB2 Linux system copy-Part2/3 (DB2 restore)

For the third part, that contains LiveCache MaxDB restore screenshots and specific LC information, go to link : SCM 7.0 (with LiveCache) DB2 Linux system copy-Part3/3 (LiveCache restore)


After completing DB2 restore, click OK and execute other SAPINST steps:
