Rename of any SAP SID on HANA – Step by Step procedure before moving to suite on HANA

Hello SCN Technical Members,

During HANA Migration using DMO process, we renamed SAP Netweaver SAP SID to avoid any conflict with existing landscape to run both BW Portal in parallel after migration. First step was to split ABAP+JAVA running on BW 7.01 then renaming ABAP and JAVA SIDs as per technical and business requirements. We captured details steps by step guidelines for helping other member out working on similar scenarios.

      Thanks for the useful blog.  Would like to understand the runtime of below tasks for your environment.  (FYI, we have a 400 GB BW 7.3 system on HANA database, being proposed for SID change).

      • Database Instance rename
      • PAS rename

      Any feedback would be appreciated.
