Take a full DB2 offline backup of the source system. To obtain an offline backup, you must: Shut down SAP R/3.
Check that no applications are connected to the database. Do this by entering the command db2 list applications. This command must return with:
 No data was returned by the database system monitor.
Stop DB2 by entering the command db2stop.
Run the backup:
  db2 backup db <SID> to <backup directory>  
See the backup database command in the DB2 online documentation for more information about the backup database command.  
If your target system is 4.6x or earlier, follow these steps: Follow the installation instructions in the document SAP R/3 Homogeneous System Copy provided by SAP. (Instead of CENTRDB.R3S or DATABASE.R3S, use the templates CEDBR3CP.R3S for a central and database server, or DBR3CP.R3S for a database server.)
The installation assistant will ask questions that you must answer according to your system's configuration. For guidelines to answer these questions, see R/3 Installation on UNIX: IBM DB2 Universal Database for UNIX and Windows.
R3SETUP will stop at step EXITR3COPY_IND_DB6. Modify and run the redirected restore script to fit the specifications of your target system. (More details and a sample script are provided in the download.)
Complete the installation as described in the SAP R/3 installation guide.
After the installation is complete, complete the following steps:
 Report loads in an SAP system are OS-dependent; you must delete these loads to complete the System Copy. The system will automatically re-create them at first access. To delete the report loads, enter the following commands from the operating system using the SQL command line processor (CLP): For 4.6x or earlier:
db2 "delete from sapr3.d010l"
db2 "delete from sapr3.d010q"        
db2 "delete from sapr3.d010y"        
db2 "delete from sapr3.d010linf"
For 4.70:
db2 "import from /dev/null of del replace into <schema_name>.repoload"

The DB2 event monitors keep information on owners and permissions, which are kept in the database system catalog. To avoid having the event monitors connect to the owner of the source system (rendering them unusable in the target system), drop and recreated them with the instance owner of the target system (follow the instructions in OSS note 95282).
