Homogeneous System Copy:- During the system copy you use the same operating system and database platform as the original system.
Heterogeneous System Copy:- During the system copy, you change either the operating system or the database system, or both. Heterogeneous system copy is a synonym for migration.
Source System and Target System:- The SAP system containing the original database is called the source system and the system to which the database copy is to be imported is called the target system.
Their SAP system names are abbreviated to SOURCE_SAPSID and TARGET_SAPSID (System i: source_ and target_). The terms source database and target database are also used in this description.
System Copy:- Duplication of an SAP system. Certain SAP parameters might change in a copy. When you perform a system copy, SAPinst installs all the instances again, but it uses a copy of the source system database to set up the database.-
Database-dependent part of the system copy.
Placeholders:- Placeholders such as are used in commands. They are used in the same way as in the SAP system installation documentation. You must replace them with the values valid for your site.Download attached file:
