We are trying to restore a SAP S/4 HANA backup (QHA/Q1A) to the same server in a different database (QGA/Q1A).
A backup of October 31.10.2019 was made on source database level 2.0.024. After that, we upgraded source database (QHA) from 2.0.024 to 2.0.044 on 05.11.2019. After this upgrade there were regular backups of the upgraded source database. We tried restoring the backup of October 31.10.2019 into target database level 2.0.024 which doesn’t succeed.
We tried 2 different databases on different hosts with level 2.0.024 both unsuccessful.
We tried restoring the backup of October 31.10.2019 into target database level 2.0.044 which was successful. However this level is undesired as the application is not compatible with level 2.0.044.
The source database was upgraded 05.11.2019. After that the database was on level .044 and regular backups continued. We try restoring a full database backup dated 31.10.2019 into a target DB .024 which fails.
We also tried an older backup to restore but same result.
At this moment when we try to restore, the restorejob comes with below error:
Error Code: [18:146]

Please let me know if additional information is needed.
Thanks in advance!
