Here i am explaining how we can perform the SAP OS DB Migration. Here we are briefing the complete steps as part of the SAP OS DB Migration

SAP OS DB Migration – Source System Steps – Export

  • Export of source system Start with a procedure document to record process.
  • Run pre-checks and setup steps per migration guide
  • Any upgrade post processing must be complete (ex. ICNV)
  • SAP data dictionary and database data dictionary must be consistent
  • Database statistics must be up to date Remove failed updates
  • Delete TEMPSE inconsistencies
  • Suspend batch jobs (BTCTRNS1)
  • Run selective business reports (finance, inventory, etc)
  • If SID changes, all transports must be released!
  • Run migration utility to export source database
  • Review export performance – re-run if necessary

SAP OS-DB Migration – Target System Steps – Import

  • Import of target system Use SAP Migration Utility (similar to an installation)
  • Install the database software
  • Install the SAP instance

  • Review import performance – re-run if necessary

SAP OS DB Migration – Post Migration Steps

  • Check for missing objects

How you can make the migration faster?

Export and import can take a very long time – tune and re-run those steps until timing is satisfactory.

Database statistics are important to both the import and export processes. Statistics from previous migrations can be exported and imported to save time.

  •  Package splitting
  •  Table splitting
  •  Migration Monitor
  •  Distribution Monitor.
