SAP NetWeaver 7.0 Dual Stack Refresh Procedure -Part 4
8.1.5 Export Java using SAPINST from Source System
Run the Java export at same time as standard database backup if possible
Ensure the latest SAPINST is available.
login as troot
su – sroot
Optionally, copy Master DVD to local file system – There have been issues in the past running SAPINST over an NFS mount. This may or may not still be the case. Also, if SAPINST crashes, a core file cannot be written over the NFS mount, so some details will be missing during diagnosis of the problem.
export DISPLAY=<IP of local PC>:0.0
cd /<DVD path>/IM_AIX_PPC64
Run the Database and Central Instance Export step
Netweaver 7.0 SR3 discs do not prompt for Typical or Custom apparently based on the latest execution.
sapr3 for BW systems
sap<sid>db for most systems
Ensure the checkbox is selected for “Stop running system”. I have not been prompted to stop the source system. It is unclear what this is actually for, but all documentation requires it to be checked.
Remove the pack directory if it already exists. The SAPINST process attempts to create it and throws an error if it already exists. The pack directory exists under the /usr/sap/<SID>/<INSTANCE>/SDM/program directory. There is a prestep to cover the removal of this directory, and should have been completed at this point.
The export steps should run about 40 minutes to an hour.
8.1.6 Copy export files to target system
cp -r * /<NFS mount accessible on target>/
If the Master DVD was copied to a local file system, remove it at this time.
