On the Road to BW/4HANA – second stage finalized
This is the second Part of the Blog – On the Road to BW/4HANA – first stage accomplished
Now we have to go back to the Solution Manager and make sure that the correct data is synchronized from the SAP BW Backend with the BW/4HANA Starter Add-On is replicated first to the SLD and then to the LMDB of the Solution Manager.
If you are struggling here, see the
– SAP First Guidance – SEM/BW Modelling in SolMan 7.x with MOPZ
If there are Problems with the needed Attribute Change Packages, see the
– SAP First Guidance – complete functional scope (CFS) for SAP BW/4HANA
Transaction RZ70 in the SAP BW Backend
Resynchronize Technical System from SLD into LMDB
Upload the correct data from the Solution Manager to the SAP Support Portal
Log on to the Maintenance Planer and select your SAP Backend System
Check that your system data is replicated to the Maintenance Planer (this might take a few minutes)
Continue with the Maintenance Task …
Download the Stack XML and push the files to your Download Basket.
If the needed software component SAP_ABA 75A was not selected by the Maintenance Planer, you can also download the necessary files manually and add the files to the import queue.
Now we can continue with the technical migration to BW/4HANA.
Run the BW/4HANA Migration
The migration can be done without the software update manager (SUM) directly in the SAP BW system via Transaction SAINT. Make sure that your SAINT version is recent (7.50/0063)
Choose your created Stack XML File
Additionally you have to select the SAP_ABA 75A component in the selection here as well.
The technical migration to BW/4HANA is running now.
After the Implementation is finished, run Transaction SPAU to reset everything back to SAP standard.
Once the SAINT procedure is finsihed, you can continue in you new system with BW/4HANA specific settings. Check the Document – SAP First Guidance – complete functional scope (CFS) for SAP BW/4HANA
If you are not yet using the BW Modeling Tools (BW-MT) now it is the time to activate them – see SAP First Guidance – Implementing BW-MT as the new SAP BW Modeling Experience
Congrats, your System is now migrated to BW/4HANA!!!
It is now possible to activate the BPC standard/embedded models again in BW/4HANA for the usage of BPC for BW/4HANA (Version 11.0)
– with SP10 is it possible to activate the BCS 1.0 for BW/4 HANA Add-On
