  • Excuse me, but as I knew and as is written in note 1844468 (Homogeneous system copy on SAP HANA) in case of refresh of an already existing SAP System you have to choose “Database Refresh or Move” and not “Standard System” like your screenshot. Why have you chosen it ?

    • Don't worry for being late. Yes, but with "refresh or move" you have to insert less data in SWPM because it reads them directly from conf file like sapservices, etc. But yes, they both works 🙂
