    Hi Daniel,

    Please go through below links on installation and uninstallation of SAP host agent.(You can find more info from the left hand pane options)

    Installing SAP Host Agent Manually - SAP Host Agent - SAP Library

    Uninstalling SAP Host Agent - SAP Host Agent - SAP Library

    Below wiki link should sum-up all, also contains few important sap note.

    SAP Host Agent - Frequently Asked Questions

    AFAIK, as the name suggests HOST AGENT is not for sap, OS instead. The only task of host agent is to collect OS related info for SAP system. So if you have one SAP system or multiple sap system on a single host... a single host agent is all you need (is all you can install).

    Hope this helps.

      Hello Daniel,

      Yes one hostagent on a LPAR with multiple SAP systems will not cause you problems. You only install a hostagent once on a LPAR or any other virtual/logical partition. That's the way it's designed.

      For SolMan you'll deploy a SMD agent and as you have multiple systems you'll configure the SMD agent to use "on the fly".
