Hi Gurus ,

We plan to upgrade ECC 6 from R/3 4.7, I have one doubt in this,

can we upgrade R/3 4.7 PRD system to ECC 6 DEV system.

If it is possible, kindly give the procedures involved in it.

Hi Sunny ,

Thanks for your reply , I read the guide , Kindly as for your concern shall i correct .

STEP 1. EXPORT the Data using Installation Master in the Live Production System as SID PRD

STEP 2. IMPORT the Data using Installation Master into the test system as Development system DEV .

The above steps are correct for changing our Productio System to Development System ?

First thing I want to make aware about is you will not be able to change database schema...after copy database schema of DEV environment will also be of production...

Then Steps:

1) you have to export Java if it is double stack system..

2) database export and other things that you have to follow from SAP guide

also, if you want that after system copy same configuration your DEV system have (configuration means RFC's, logical systems etc..) then before system copy you have to take backup of these configurations...

after that you have to import Java, restore database and perform other steps..

For details I will suggest you to follow SAP System copy guide...
