HANA Sidecar ECC data replication - Unicode question
We're looking at setting up a HANA sidecar instance for doing data replication from our current ECC system (running on Oracle). The existing ECC system database is NOT Unicode compliant. Question: will we need to perform the Unicode database conversion on our ECC system before we can do sidecar replication? In other words, is a Unicode compliant ECC system required for HANA sidecar data replication?
to be able to replicate the data form Oracle to SAP HANA you need SAP SLT. For the replication with SAP SLT the target System (your Oracle DB) doesn't need to be Unicode compliant.
