Migration 7.5 to 10.1 and backups enviroments

Hi,

I'm planning a migration from 7.5NW to 10.1 and "2 backups enviroment". I think it's neccesary, beyond to migrate the enviroment in use, to do a restore of 2 backups enviroment and then run program migration, but is this true? if I perform these steps it is as if I did migration 3 times. Are there other way to perform this?

Thanks in advanced.

Regards,

Fernando.

Hi Vadim,

Thanks.

What for do you need this files?

It's a requirement of client => "Migrate Appset in use and 2 more (Backup)", I think they (client) be afraid  about migration and they want to be assured that they will have "all" in 10.1 version. But really it's neccesary? What do you think?

Thanks.

Sorry, but "It's a requirement of client => "Migrate Appset in use and 2 more (Backup)"" - absolutely unclear, you have to discuss reasons with the client!

May be they have some old backup different to current system setup and they want to look on data in this backup. Then you will have to migrate it or keep 7.5 on some server just to view this backup...

Yes, really I need more information regarding this requirement. I will update this discussion in next days. But a priori, I think that if they need the 2 backups migrated to 10.1 version, the effort regarding migration project will increase almost x3..

Thanks.

"will increase almost x3" - it depends... if they only want to view some reports then it will not take a lot of efforts!

Hi Fernando,

It is pointless to migrate the 2 backups as you stated, it will be x3 effect.

it will be dependent on how much change you made during the migration.

Hi,

Sorry, I said to it was neccesary to migrate 2 backups, but actually I need to migrate 3 various Environment (AppSet).

Thanks.

And what? What is the business case?

Hi Vadim,

The business case is:

     - I have 1 main AppSet (connected to R/3, reporting, BPF...)

     - I have 2 secondary AppSet (used only to consult historical data)

I guess I will have to do the migration process x3. The first step will be migrate the main Appset and then I'll migrate the 2 secondary Appset trying to take advantage of the manual task (E.G. Reporting).

Thanks.

Regards,

Fernando.

It will not be an x3 job!

Historical AppSets do not need any input forms! And reports for the main Appset can be used to view historical data with 99% probability.

You also don't need to check any script logic in historical Appsets...

Don't need to configure data load...

Yes! Thank very much.

Just agree with the customer the number of reports that has to work on historical data (may be the list will be very short!) And after main environment conversion just test current reports on the historical data. Also ad hoc reports can be easily generated for historical data...

P.S. If answer is helpful or correct - mark it helpful or correct, don't use like!

Hi Fernando,

Apart from UJBR backup,I think you have DB2 backup also right?
