Another project have been completed by me this year.
Since the sister company (formerly I maintain) moved to hyperconverged Nutanix and used Acropolis as its hypervisor, there is a SAP R / 3 4.7 ext 200 system running on HP rx4640 machine with HPUX 11.23 OS and Oracle 9.2 database server that must be migrated to a Nutanix machine . HP rx4640 machine is not extended maintenance support. While the system, SAP R / 3 4.7 ext 200 is also not supported by SAP both SAP instance and database server.
Target using Linux OS SLES 11 SP4 and DB2 database server 9.7 FP 5.
Broadly speaking the migration process is :
– Export existing data in SAP R / 3 4.7 ext 200 on HPUX source machine
– Install DB2 9.7 database server on target Linux
– Install Central Instance on Linux target
– Install Database instance in Linux target by selecting System Copy and export result (process no.1) as imported data.
The export process runs smoothly. Problems begin to emerge during process no.4 of them:
The process of database load had stopped because the file system is full sapdata. Solution: extend the sapdata partition and the file system
The database load process was stopped again because the file system is a full archive log. Solution: extend the partition and add the number of LOGARCHIVE second files.
After the import process is complete, there are still more problems that arise, the SAP kernel 6.40 used does not recognize the linux 3.0 kernel (used SLES 11 SP 4) and DB2 9.7 database. The solution is download the latest version of SAP kernel 6.40 EX2 patch (version 414).
Project un-official SAP OSDB migration done by un-certified Base like me
Lately I have upload some video on how to install SAP NetWeaver 7.4. I am using DB2 10.5 FP 3 as database server and using SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP 4.
Preparation check before installation.
This video show you on how to step by step upgrade SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP 4 (with SAP ERP 6 EHp 5 on it) to SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 12.
There are few problems especially on uuidd (UUID daemon) and libuuid1 but it all solved. You can check it out.
Happy watching !!
I have installed SAP ERP 6 EHp 5 on SuSE Linux Enterprise Server SP 2. Then I need to upgrade my OS from SLES 11 SP 2 to the latest version of SLES 11, which is SLES 11 SP 4.
Here are the video.
I also have uploade a brand new slideshow video on step by step on how to install SAP NetWeaver 7 EHp 2 Process Integration (formerly known as SAP Exchange Infrastructure a.k.a SAP XI).
It’s really easy to follow.
Happy watching and enjoy !!
