This is the second Part of the Blog - On the Road to BW/4HANAfirst stage accomplished

Now we have to go back to the Solution Manager and make sure that the correct data is synchronized from the SAP BW Backend with the BW/4HANA Starter Add-On is replicated first to the SLD and then to the LMDB of the Solution Manager.

If you are struggling here, see the

Resynchronize Technical System from SLD into LMDB

Upload the correct data from the Solution Manager to the SAP Support Portal

Log on to the Maintenance Planer and select your SAP Backend System

Check that your system data is replicated to the Maintenance Planer (this might take a few minutes)

Continue with the Maintenance Task ...

Download the Stack XML and push the files to your Download Basket.

If the needed software component SAP_ABA 75A was not selected by the Maintenance Planer, you can also download the necessary files manually and add the files to the import queue.

Now we can continue with the technical migration to BW/4HANA.

Run the BW/4HANA Migration

The migration can be done without the software update manager (SUM) directly in the SAP BW system via Transaction SAINT. Make sure that your SAINT version is recent (7.50/0063)

Choose your created Stack XML File

Additionally you have to select the SAP_ABA 75A component in the selection here as well.

The technical migration to BW/4HANA is running now.

After the Implementation is finished, run Transaction SPAU to reset everything back to SAP standard.

Once the SAINT procedure is finsihed, you can continue in you new system with BW/4HANA specific settings. Check the Document - SAP First Guidance – complete functional scope (CFS) for SAP BW/4HANA

If you are not yet using the BW Modeling Tools (BW-MT) now it is the time to activate them - see SAP First Guidance – Implementing BW-MT as the new SAP BW Modeling Experience

Congrats, your System is now migrated to BW/4HANA!!!
