HI Nitin,

System copy is much easier to be done and takes less time compared to the other.

System Copy does support your requirements

But, You need install DB

You need to export your existing system SDM information

Then install fresh in your target system ....using the exported CI Content.

And post-install steps as usal.

Please refer SAP Note 870863
