Abstract: IBM Tivoli® Storage FlashCopy® Manager software provides fast application-aware backups and restores leveraging advanced snapshot technologies in IBM storage systems. Starting with version 2.2, FlashCopy Manager also supports the cloning of an SAP database. In SAP terms, this is called a homogeneous system copy. Using the FlashCopy Manager cloning feature for SAP, the effort of creating a system copy can be reduced from two days (or more) to just a few hours. These papers cover the installation and configuration of FlashCopy Manager 2.2 for SAP on an IBM DB2® or Oracle® database. Operating systems are IBM AIX® and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server® (SLES). Used storage systems are IBM DS8000® storage server, IBM Storwize V7000 and IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller, In November 2012 we successfully tested the current FlashCopy Manager version 3.2 on IBM Flex System® V7000 Storage Node which integrates into IBM's PureFlex® System. The third addendum outlines the test environment.
