Many of the notes I have read are circular references and never really give a nice step, by step installation. I have read 1067221, 531069, and many more. They all point to each other but never a guide. Looking through the archives people have done it. I just have not been luck enough to stumble upon the right combination of notes/docs/guides. Someone MUST have something like a guide to install Linux App servers for a CI on HP-UX. Please share of you do!

Hi Vince,

This is rather simple..

In an homogeneous system you share the the /sapmnt directories from the CI or ASCS host (depending if its a distributed system) because all the systems use the same kernel, in an heterogeneous system you don't, as they are different. You only share the /sapmnt/<SID>/global and /sapmnt/<SID>/profile, the /sapmnt/<SID>/exe should be a local directory.

Other than that they are only a handful of other minor differences in setup.

In fact you need to get the /sapmnt/<SID> mounted on all Linux servers where you are planning to install the App servers. There will be no change to the global, profile and exe directories as there will be separate directories for each architecture in the exe directory. For systems running on HP-UX there will be a separate directory to put the kernel for HP-UX and the same applies for AIX, Linux and Windows.

Eg: uc/hpia64 for HP-UX Itanium
