Two NetWeaver ABAP in one server


Currently in our SUSE server exists SAP NetWeaver ABAP server. It's with a single disk, meaning instances, transport directory, oracle soft. and data exists there.

A second NetWeaver is to be installed in the same server, but in the newly attached disk (partition). All new instances, new transport directory, oracle soft and data (one more RDBMS) should reside there.

The installation guide states that I need to set up something manually, because it does not prompt for some things and would install in the 1st partition:

  • The figure below assumes that you have set up one file system for the SAP system mount directory <sapmnt> and one file system for the /usr/sap directory. However, you have to decide for which directories you want to set up separate file systems. If you do not set up any file system on your installation host, the installer creates all directories in the root directory (/ ) . The installer prompts you only for the <sapmnt> directory during the installation.
  • Set up the required file system nodes for the Oracle database before the installation.

How do I create these file systems and not mix them up with the existing ones?

    Hi Nerijus,

    Technically it is possible to install more than one ABAP instances on a single server.

    Point to take care are

    1) usr/sap/trans should be made different

    2) Need to have different file systems like /oracle/SID

    Hope this helps.
