I am working as System Admin for SAP Souring Sytem. Currently our SAP Sourcing application is Hosted on SAP Hosting service. Now we are moving the SAP Sourcing application to an another Hosting environment provided by Secure-24.
Since I'm very new to this role, I would request suggestion/advises, precautions to be taken while the migrating the application to a new enviroment.
During our Kick-ff call, Engineers from Secure-24 have asked me about custom jar files, which I'm not aware. but we have customized certain features in the application through Scripting, I'm not sure whether he is talking about that, if not how to handle custom scripts during migration.
I would request all of you to provide your valuable inputs, suggestion to smooth migration. Please do let me know for any additional information if required.
Thanking you inadvance.
Mostly you'll have to keep a close contact on effects of architectural changes:
For the data itself it's just a dump-import, and that should not pose any types of issues.
Your team at Secure 24 is well versed in the application. The question about custom jars is valid as they would need to be reviewed and supplied as part of the migration. You should be able to file a support message asking if there are any custom jars in the deployment of your system. This is possible but not common. If they were to exist it would have been for some custom development in java to add functionailty to the system. This is not the same as scripts. Scripts are custom java beanshell scripts that are supported nataively within the application. All ypou need to do is determine if they exist. Your hosting partner will determine how to deal with these at migration time.
