SAPINST is asking for a migration key in homogeneous system copy

Dear Experts,

I have R3 4.7 Extension set 2 SR1 Unicode system installed on AIX 6.1 and DB2 9.7 FP5. When i tried to do a homogeneous system copy (export/import)(I have installed Central instance successfully, got the error during Database instance installation), I got a pop up with below error message during Database Load phase.

when I click on OK button it is asking me for migration key.

Why SAPINST is asking for migration when I am performing homogenous system copy?

I have chosen below option while installing Database Installation.

I tried generating the migration key, restarted the SAPINST & entered the migration key but no luck. Got the same error message again.

I have downloaded the latest R3load from SMP & placed it in the Kernel.

I have restarted the installation by giving 777 permissions recursively to /backup/temp/sapinst_instdir, got the same error again.


My source has Kernel 640 version patch 390 & target system has Kernel 640 version patch 21. Is the lower kernel patch causing the issue?


Actually I am planning to update kernel patch to 390 on target system, does it help?



I am pasting MIGKEY.log, testMigKey.log, sapinst.log, sapinst_dev.log below. Can someone please check & suggest.

The migration key for a heterogeneous system copy is wrong. Try again.
