2285859 - MSCS: SWPM Homogeneous System Copy in MSCS Environment


There are two general problems during SAP MaxDB homogeneous system copy in the MSCS environment:

1. During Database configuration (‘MaxDB Database’ installation service) the installation dialog asks for the export medium 'EXP1' however during homogeneous copy there is only database backup as export medium available


2. While Executing ‘Database Instance’ installation service the installation stops in the step 'Alter database schema'
