Regardless of what usage scenarios and platforms you may choose for your Solution Manager 7.2 (Solman), you need options either now or in the future to be able to migrate it either for performance, capacity, or licensing reasons. For example, if you choose to deploy Solman 7.2 on Windows and MS SQLServer because that’s what you currently have for Solman 7.1, then later you want to get some experience for SAP HANA with a free DB license, you can migrate it to HANA on Linux.
This cookbook is one example performed with SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SPS5 on SAP MaxDB migration to SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE), which can be similarly applied to any SAP-supported platform. It assumes you have already sized the target environment using SAP Quicksizer or T-shirt sizing estimates.
IT-Conductor monitors and manages many SAP platforms agentlessly from the cloud, and we encounter many customer Solman deployments. We also maintain several Solman landscapes in our R&D lab for SAP integration. Thus with our OS/DB migration experience and Solman expertise, we hope this document will help you with your Solman if you are planning a similar migration.
