I am doing a database migration from the existing Production to a new server with same OS,DB and SAP ERP version. The new server type is also same with more memoryand HDD resources. The OS is windows 2003 server, DB Oracle 10.2 G and ERP version is ECC 6.0. I am planning for an homogenous copy using sapinst. My plan is to export the database using sapinst from the current production server and import to the nerserver using sapinst. Pls clarify the following points before doing the the export/ import and help me to do this activity with out much issues.
1. What are prerequistes to be carried out before doing this activity.
2. While importing whether we have to create the central instance creation before importing the database.
3. What are post installation activities.
4. Is there any other better method to carry out the server migration.
