DISCLAIMER: The purpose of this blog is to provide guidance to fast track your SANDBOX conversion. Tool parameters are for shortest overall run time with maximum downtime. The author will not take over any responsibility of the consequences this may cause. Please use the blog for sequence of the process after going through the latest GUIDES.
The Source System is ECC6/EHP5/mss
TIP: If you get error in phase PREP_INPUT_CHECK/SUMCHK! – Source release 731 SP 0 needs at least SP 1 for update scenarios with target ‘753’. The 1809 Release Note 2625407 states that min in NW for EHP3 is EHP3 for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SP01.
Also note that you will have to create stack.xml after the stack level has been upgraded to the min level.
STEP 1: SOURCE – OPERATING SYSTEM
You can use PAM tool – Product Availability Matrix to determine if OS meets the requirement prior to system conversion.
Please refer note below for recommended Application Server Platforms:
2620910 – SAP S/4HANA 1511, 1610, 1709 and SAP BW/4HANA 1.0: Recommended Application Server Platforms
TIP: For S/4HANA 1809 FPS1 conversion, customers had to upgrade Operating system from Windows 2012 to Windows 2016, and even though the source system will be decommissioned. This is because the client of HANA 2.0 db needs Windows 2016.
STEP 2: SOURCE – UPGRADE DATABASE
Upgrade database to MS SQL 2012 or higher.
as per Note 2644872 – Database Migration Option (DMO) of SUM 2.0 SP04
1651862 – Release planning for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 <== min SAP Netweaver SPs
1676665 – Setting up Microsoft SQL Server 2012 <== min SAP Kernel Levels
1684545 – SAP Installation Media and SQL4SAP for SQL Server 2012
If your SQL Server release is SQL Server 2008 R2, make sure that you apply SP1 to the system before you upgrade to SQL Server2012. Please find the key screenshots of the upgrade process from SQL Server 2008R2 to SQL Server 2012R2.
Stop SAP and then run setup.exe as administrator
Run SWPM to finalize SQL Server upgrade. Use SWPM10SP24_-20009707.SAR or later.
Ref SAP Note 683447 – SAP Tools for MS SQL Server The tool performs post-upgrade steps automatically.
Start SAP system
Connect with dba login to SQL Server 2012 Management Studio. Open Query window and run commands while SAP system is online:
use E6M go EXEC sp_updatestats go use master go alter database E6M SET PAGE_VERIFY CHECKSUM; go
STEP 3: SOURCE – CONVERSION USING DMO
Please note that in this blog we are covering scenario of DMO with System Move as shown below. The scenario of DMO with System move is used when you move from one host to another for hardware change, TDI or VM within same data canter. It is also used to move from one data center to another or from On-Prem to Cloud (IAAS). This scenario requires New installation of S/4HANA on target prior to SUM.
This option allows to switch database host only, while keeping the same application server host. It requires HANA DB install on Target host prior to starting SUM tool.Please extract DMO tool as below 2 commands:
Login as e6madm in Powershell Run As Administrator execute:
cd E:\usr\sap\E6M sapcar -xvf E:\sapmedia\download\SUM20SP03_1-80002483.SAR cd E:\usr\sap\E6M\SUM\abap .\SUMSTART.BAT confighostagent
TIP: Please check that your c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\host file contains entry with IP address mapped to hostname vhcalabaci. c:\users\mahesh>type c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts 10.20.130.140 vhcalabaci vhcalabaci.dummy.nodomain vhcalabacs vhcalabacs.dummy.nodomain
Open Google Chrome browser (latest version recommended) Enter URL:
In case you get screen below please click on Advanced and then “Proceed to vhcalabaci(unsafe)”
TIP: If you get message that Page is Unresponsive just click on Wait.
Enter e6madm/(password you used before) in the screen below
TIP: SUM MailNotifier can be used to get notified by eMail/SMS when SUM displays a dialog so you don’t have to frequently check it for long running phases. It can be configured at PREPROCESSING PHASE later when you have a break. You need a sender email account like email@example.com with password, recipient email like firstname.lastname@example.org or SMS text like email@example.com After this you execute command as root:
vhcals4hci:~ # java -jar MailNotifierApp.jar properties=MailNotifierApp.props I had to add parameter mail.smtp.starttls.enable=true to the above command for gmail account. Also I had to login to gmail account and then execute link to allow less secure apps. Refer Boris Rubarth’s blog at end of this blog for more info.
TIP: If you get error manifest signature revoked download latest crlbag.p7s. Do not use old downloaded file crlbag.p7s. Refer SAP Note 2491577 – SUM fails at phase PREP_EXTRACT/SCAN_DOWNLOADDIR with error message “SIGNATURE: manifest signature is revoked”
At 0%) Current Phase PREP_EXTRACT/SCAN_DOWNLOADDIR enter the Download Directory E:\sapmedia\download and click on Next

If the Simplification Item Check inconsistencies are not resolved you get above error. More details are found in file /usr/sap/E5O/SUM/abap/log/S4_SIF_TRANSITION_CHECKS.E5O.
One of the items is as per Simplification Item List, Check the note applicable is 1484142 – MRN1: Incorrect Customizing entries deleted As per the note, run report S4SIC_TNIW5CORR in client 000 once.Once you have fixed inconsistencies as shown in SI-Check, please rerun the job and check Results and confirm to continue…

At this point you need to transfer the content of SUM to target host.
TIP: if the target hostname is same, SUM cannot determine, whether it is running on the source or the target host. Having the same host name for source and target is not supported.

=====SWITCH TO TARGET HOST======
STEP 4: TARGET – PREPARE TARGET SYSTEM
Please prepare target system as per blog in New Installation of S/4HANA 1809 FPS0 – Part 2 – Installation
STEP 1: OPERATING SYSTEM
STEP 2: NEW HANA DATABASE (OPTION 2)
STEP 3: S/4HANA INSTALLATION USING SWPM
TIP: In step 3 or the blog, it is not necessary to create a stack file in Maintenace planner and install addon using STEP 4: ADDON INSTALLATION USING SUM, just the base install of S/4HANA 1809 is enough as the schema content will be replaced by DMO tool.

Install using command below:
./sapinst SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME=vhcals4hci SAPINST_ACCEPT_INTERNAL_SIGNATURE=true SAPINST_SLP_MODE=false
STEP 5: TARGET – CONTINUE DMO
First copy the entire SUM directory structure from Source to Target, doesn’t matter the platform.
Since SUM is copied from Windows platform to Linux, there is an additional step to be done. After copying all the files, extract the SUM SAR file of the Linux platform over the source files. The same is applicable if you move SUM files other than Linux as source so linux files overlay the Source platform files.
vhcals4hci:e6madm > cd /usr/sap/E6M vhcals4hci:e6madm > SAPCAR -xvf /sapmedia/download/SUM20SP04_0-80002456.SAR
Check that entire filesystem under SUM is owned by e6madm:sapsys
Upgrade hostagent to latest:
vhcals4hci:# /usr/sap/hostctrl/exe/saphostexec -upgrade -archive /usr/sap/DMS/SAPHOSTAGENT190_190-20005731.SAR
TIP: Target hostname has to be different – DMO does not support having the same host name for source and target. Check that command hostname gives the target hostname which has to be different form source. SUM does not use virtual hostname.
Start DMO. SUM will detect that there is hostname change and will continue:

Enter Host name as vhcals4hci and Instance number as 00 and click on Next
Enter INSTANCE PROFILE as E6M_D00_vhcals4hci and click on Next

At (89%) Current Phase MAIN_UPTRANS/STARTSAP_PUPG there is issue with system start.
TIP: Ref Note 2312315 – SUM fails to start an instance in phase MAIN_UPTRANS/STARTUP_PUPG – INTERNAL Resolve the issue after checking profiles and then start
