    1.1 Introduction

    Overview

    You can copy your SAP NetWeaver Identity Management Identity Center from a source database system to a target database system, where both source and target database systems may be one of the following:

    Microsoft SQL Server Oracle IBM DB2 (only as target database system)

    This results in the following combinations/scenarios being possible for the system copy:

    The system copy, where both the configuration and data are copied, is performed using a set of jobs (and the corresponding repository, scripts and constants) that are collected in an export file (MCC file) and imported into the Identity Center of the source database system. Each of the system copy scenarios mentioned above will have its own set of jobs in separate export files.

    Prerequisites

    The following prerequisites need to be fulfilled before copying the database system:

    Both the source and the target database system must have the same database schema version. All SAP NetWeaver Identity Management components on the source and the target database system must be

    on the same patch level. All current/existing dispatchers and event services must be stopped (in both source and target database

    system). A new dispatcher, running only the system copy jobs, needs to be created and configured in the source system. See Creating Dispatcher for the System Copy Jobs.

    NoteThe dispatcher created and configured to run only the system copy jobs should be the only dispatcher running in the source system. No dispatchers should run in the target system.

    The source database must be IDLE, meaning that the dispatchers must be stopped and no tasks or jobs are running (that is, it is important that there is no activity in the database during the system copy process.

    Remove the access to the Identity Management User Interface to prevent changes during the copying of the database system. This can be done in several ways, depending on the version of the SAP NetWeaver AS Java. For instance, for EHP 1 for SAP NetWeaver CE 7.1, you can stop the IDM_DataSource from the SAP NetWeaver Administrator.

    SAP NetWeaver Identity Management Virtual Directory Server should be stopped. Back up the source system's Identity Center database. Although not necessary, it is highly recommended that the target database system is a completely new

    installation (empty) before the system copy.

  • 1.2 Importing the Jobs

    To perform the system copy between the database systems, a set of jobs is available on the SAP Community Network (SCN) along with this guide.

    The file __SYSCOPY.mcc (for example, ORACLE_DB2_SYSCOPY.mcc) contains the necessary jobs, and each system copy scenario will have its own set of jobs in such separate export files.

    A zip file will contain all export files. Download the ZIP file from the SAP Community Network and extract the export files into a suitable folder.

    This section covers the following steps:

    Creating a dispatcher for system copy jobs only. Importing the job folder (containing system copy jobs and the corresponding repository, scripts and

    constants). Configuring the imported repository.

    1.2.1 Creating Dispatcher for the System Copy Jobs

    Context

    A dispatcher, running only the system copy jobs, needs to be created and configured in the source system. This is the only dispatcher that should be running in the source system during the copy of the database system.

    To create a dispatcher for system copy jobs, proceed as follows:

    Procedure

    1. In the console tree, select the Identity Center's Dispatchers entry and choose New Dispatcher from the context menu.

  • 2. A dispatcher named idmdispatcher is inserted in the console tree. You may rename the dispatcher on the Options tab of the dispatcher properties pane.

    3. On the Options tab, create the dispatcher scripts by choosing Create dispatcher scripts.4. After the scripts are created, you should test the dispatcher before installing it. Choose the Test button. If no

    error messages are displayed during the test, stop the test (by pressing CTRL + C ) and choose Install to install the dispatcher.

    5. Choose Start to start the service.6. Select the Policy tab and make sure that only options Run jobs for Java runtime engine and Run regular jobs

    are selected before choosing Apply:

    7. On the Options tab, make sure that the dispatcher status is Running threads: JOBEXECUTE. You need to choose the Refresh button to update the status. It may take at least 30 seconds (by default) before the options selected in the previous step are applied.
