Mixed (Java & ABAP w/different sources) System Copy Failed- NW 7.0 SR3/SP14

Hello SAP Friends! Our NW admin did a dual stack system copy where the ABAP server came from system 1 and the Java server came from system 2. This worked fine for ABAP (duh it was installed first), but the Java system copy was a disaster. the server started but many key services did not.


Many of the configuration entries were not generated properly. For example, a new, unknown SID was created, and many entries referenced System 1 (the ABAP source, not even the Java source). We were able to find and fix some incorrect config entries, but we still couldn't get all of the services we needed to work.

I think NW is so complicated that such a configuration is probably impossible, but maybe I am wrong.

Does anyone have tips? Or can confirm that this would never work?

The current plan is to install the Java Server from scratch as an add-in, which is less effort than searching through all the config files without any certainty that it will work. Hopefully it will work.

Many thanks in advance.
