Livecache refresh for diff version on target & source.
We are planning to refresh one of our old test SCM system with production data. Versions are as below.
Target SCM - SCM 7 EHP2. Target LC - 7.7.07
Source SCM - SCM 7 EHP3. Source LC - 7.9.21
For SCM version part I think target will automatically get the source version after ABAP system refresh. But for LC according to note 457425 versions should be same on source & target. I am planning to install LC 7.9 on target server then upgrade patch to 7.9.21 & then restore the backup from production.
So if i follow this course of action still do I need to follow the step1 'Select the menu option Instance -> Install' from DBMGUI or I can directly go to backup restore from production.
Also I am taking a complete LC backup from production using db studio. So I think I need to restore it again using DB studio only. Note 457425 is giving steps for DBMGUI so can I get the simillar steps for dbstudio anywhere?
I am taking a complete backup of production. So is there any specific requirement while taking a backup for LC refresh to restore on other system than the same database.
Kindly let me know if you have any inputs on these queries as I am bit confused at this point for this
