install two content servers on one machine

i want to install two content servers on one machine,

one content server for test and one production content server

according to the faq of sap content server this is possible

Can I run several instances of SAP Content Server on my machine?

Yes, you can.

If you create several websites pointing to copies of the Content Server software, you can run all these copies of the software - that is, multiple servers - on one machine. Note that all the websites must run the same version of the Content Server software and each site must have its own parameter file (ContentServer.ini).

You can also install several SAP DB instances on one machine.

A combination of both SAP Content Server and SAP DB on one machine allows you to use one machine for content servers for several SAP systems. This helps prevent duplication of repository names or backup schedules.

but i cant find how to do it. the installation guide doesnt mention anything of it. how should one go about it.

    Depends wether you run the CS installation on Windows or Linux.

    Basically you need to install a content server plus the storage in question.

    It seems you want to go for DB based storage.

    All other database instances have to be installed as separate content server database without any content server installation.

    sapinst provides this option. Of course you have to plan your disk layout and ressources ahead before doing this step.

    So after initial setup is finished, you install the next DB and nothing else. Repeat this step until you reach the desired number of DB installs.

    Which database instance is used on repository will be defined in cs.conf.

    Simply copy the block from the initial install describing your first repo and change the relevant parameters like Name and DB SID.

    Repo names must be unique to work all over your landscape.

    Just a sample cs.conf below last block pointing to a second database storage. Initial part as pre-configured by sapinst, second block from defining first repo in OAC0 on DEV-system. Beware: Additional repos must be defined here in cs.conf, not OAC0!
