    Hi,

    Not sure what are you talking about.

    CI -> as far as I know this is <b>C</b>entral <b>I</b>nstance

    Therefore, I assume that you want to know the difference between a Central Instance and a Distributed Instance.

    The simple explanation -> on a central instance you have SAP and a Database. On a distributed one, the SAP instance is in one server and the Database in a different one.

    Hi satish

    Central CI is when u have CI and database instance combined on one machine

    Distributed CI is when you have CI and database on two different machines

    But I am not sure about the terminology whether they are of SAP standards

    Thanks

    Hi Satish,

    I think you are interested in knowing the difference between Central and distributed Instances.

    Central Instance: Is an SAP Instance where you find Enques and the Message Services together with other (dialog, background....) services of SAP.

    Distributed Instance: Here SAP Instance, Enque service and the message service can be located in different servers.

    FYI: A system with CI and DB on the same server is called Central System and not Central Instance.
