Could I mix multiple instances of cluster and noncluster SAP?


Hi experts,

I want to build a cluster system - DEV on two servers. Also, I want to install another standalone system - QAS within these two servers.

I ran this configuration before(ECC6 sapinstall/Win2008/SQL2008) without any problems. However, with new SWPM/Win2012/SQL2012, it seems to be troublesome.

1. I install a standalone system first but when I install a cluster system using SWPM. "It will show /sapmnt is in local disk" and stop. I think it should be ok because the first /sapmnt is built in physical server for standalone server and I want to create another /sapmnt for virtual cluster host.

2. I re-install the whole system and I create a cluster system first and then standalone system. The installer is finished without errors. However, when I failover to the second node with standalone system. The central service always start failed.
