Copy VMWare image of Java only system


We are running an SAP Java only System (NW 7.0) with a MSSQL 2000 DB on Windows running VMWare. We are trying to create a clone of that server to create another JAVA only SAP system.

We have changed the Computer Name in MSSQL and that is up and running. We have also changed the instance profile paramters to point to the new Server name.

Couple questions:

1) Is this possible to do with a JAVA only system?

2) The JControl process keeps failing. I've changed the file to point to the new server host and when I start the system it keeps pointing back at the old one. Is this file defined somewhere else?

Has anyone done this before or tried it? If you have, can you provide any tips or tricks on how to accomplish this.

For copyng systems, you need to use systemcopy procedure,

is fully supported : --> System Copy and Migration

P.S. in your situation i'm think good to read -->
