Can SAP HANA system replication be used for system copies?
Thanks in advance.
The normal reason for SAP HANA system replication is high availability and disaster recovery, but it can also be used for system copies. Once the initial synchronization has happened the replication side can be used as copy system by executing a takeover. It is much quicker to establish the system copy based on an existing replication than doing the same with traditional approaches like backup and restore. If the SAP HANA database has to be renamed for the system copy, the hdbrename tool can be used.
Be aware that the number of working hosts on the copied system needs to be identical to the original number of working hosts (standby hosts can vary).
