System copy - copy from Production but target has different DB version

Hi guys,

We need to perform system copy of our S4HANA and CRM systems but the source DB has different version.

Source CRM DB version: HANA 1.00.12227

Target CRM DB version: HANA 2.00.06300

Source S4HANA DB version: HANA 2.00.04801

Target S4HANA DB version: HANA 2.00.06300

Do you think it is possible to perform the system copy having CRM has HANA 1.0 DB as source while target is already 2.0? While S4HANA system has Rev 48 as source while target is Rev 63?

Hi,

I think this other question already answers yours.

target is in higher version. The problem is we cannot upgrade the DB of the source (PRD) yet.

It is not possible to perform a system copy from a CRM system running on HANA 1.0 to a target system running HANA 2.0. The same applies for an S/4HANA system copy from a source system on revision 48 to a target system on revision 63. This is because the system copy process involves copying the entire system, including the database, and the different versions of HANA and S/4HANA are not compatible with each other. A system conversion or migration would be required to move to a different version of HANA or S/4HANA. Please follow the blog Nicolaas shared.

amin_omidy - how about a remote client copy? Is it required to have the same DB version?

Hi Philip,

To me if you check step 6 they basically copied/restored from older version into a new version of the DB this is your intended action with the System copy correct??

Kind Regards.

Hi Philip

If you want to perform the client copy source and target system versions should be the same version.

Hi Philip

You can do the system copy from production to the target system with the same DB version and then perform the DB upgrade to HANA 2
