Can all MDM Catalog 7.02 components be installed on one server?

We are upgrading an SRM-MDM Catalog 2 system (MDM 5.5) to SRM-MDM Catalog 7.02.  The 7.02 release requires MDM 7.1, which has been redone to use the standard SAP startup framework.  We want to install all of the components required to run SRM-MDM Catalog 7.02 (MDM 7.1, Oracle database, WAS Java instance and the actual Catalog) on the same Unix server in our development and qa environments.

Both Java and MDM will use the same Oracle database, and we know this will work because we are doing it now in our current 5.5 implementation. However, since MDM 7.1 now requires an installation with sapinst, MDM 7.1 will require its own SID, its own instance number(s), and so on. The diagrams in the SRM-MDM Catalog 7.02 component installation guide indicate that all of these components can be installed on the same server.  A new SID for MDM 7.1 would make it unique on the server; the only exception would be the the sapservices file in the /usr/sap directory, since there is ony one of them on the server.  That is what concerns us.  .

Can all of these components be installed on the same server?  Have any of you installed it this way? Any guidance will be appreciated.

    Hi Colm,

    Yes, it is possible to install and run all of the components on one Unix server.  The new installation requires another SID and instance number on the server, but that did not cause us any problems.

    We are now running the Oracle database, the NW WAS java instance, and SRM-MDM Catalog 7.02 all on the same Unix server in all of our environments (dev, qa and prod).  The Catalog installations include the mdss (syndication) server as well as the mds and mdis (import) servers.

    So far, no issues.

    Regards,

    WL
