My customer is looking to re-platform their SAP onto FlexPod, and to switch from Oracle to DB2. They use SMSAP today but clearly that's no longer an option once Oracle is out of the picture. I'm fishing to find out how close to SMSAP functionality we can get today, using SnapCreator with relevant plugins (either built-in or community), when using SAP with DB2?
Snap Creator integrates with DB2 or any SAP database but not with SAP directly. For MaxDB there is additional integration but that is because SAP provides that DB and has some added features to integrate better with SAP.
Where SC differs from SMSAP
1. No BRtools integration
2. SC can restore data but doesnt perform recovery for DB2, recovery is manual...but most people actually prefer this.
3. SC can clone data and mount file systems on same host or a clone host but it wont perform any DB2 related steps. You need to change sid or whatever on your own.
Both 2 and 3 can be automated through the framework, just not handled out-of-box.
