DI Installation without shared storage????



Firs of all, excuse my poor english! I'll try to explain our problem correctly, but please let me know if you can't understand me!

We have a complex network architecture and nfs traffic is not allowed between different network segments (all our servers are UNIX, but with x86-windows, the problem would be the same).

Untill now we had no problem because there was a single SAP server for each environment, DEV, TEST & PROD.

The transport system was configured normally, except that the transport file exchange was done asynchronously using intermediate servers with rsync.

Now, we have to add two additional "Dialog Servers" on different network segments, so they won't share the storage with the "Central Instance". Is this possible?

Which are the specific needs of real time file sharing between Dialog Application Servers and Central Instance Application Server? Can they be overriden with a similar rsync strategy? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
