      Hi Yogesh,

      Since I am not expert in Solution manager, i need some further guidance.

      1) Disconnect DAA

      Do you mean to disconnect erp agent as shown in below screen

      2) Wha does Clean system in SLD (CIM content only) mean? RZ 70? where do i find.?

      3) Clean system in LMDB :remove from LMDB?Right.

      Thanks Yogesh

      Hi Yogesh,

       

      I am about to decommission an old dual stack system. As I've only done this once for simple systems, I searched online and came upon this blog entry.

      I have 2 doubts:

      1. You start by entering transaction SM_WORKCENTER, but the screenshot you posted afterwards resembles what I get when I enter SOLMAN_SETUP (my SM_WORKCENTER is a quite different FIORI-ish interface). Which one should it be?
      2. Should I start by decommissioning the JAVA instance or the ABAP one? Does it make a difference?

       

      Kind regards,

      tao

      Hello Tania Oliveira,

      1. You start by entering transaction SM_WORKCENTER, but the screenshot you posted afterwards resembles what I get when I enter SOLMAN_SETUP (my SM_WORKCENTER is a quite different FIORI-ish interface). Which one should it be?

      You are correct, You will be seeing new version. This blog was written with Solman 7.2 SP3 (I believe)

      There is lots change in look and feel but here what you suppose to see....

       

       

      1. Should I start by decommissioning the JAVA instance or the ABAP one? Does it make a difference?

      I recommend you to decommission your user source system at second. If user source is ABAP please decommission JAVA first.

       

      Thank you

      Yogesh
