Is it ok to install the HCI DS agent in the same box as our S4 instance. We have confirmed that it do not have any Data Services install running? Does it need to be in an independent box ?

Hello Rahul,

Based on our experience working with SAP for HCI DS. Agent is just a software to bypass the firewall and connect your on-premise with Cloud. You can install the agent in any machine. It is always good, if you get it installed in an independent machine or a non critical app server and in the same location data center where the ECC, BW or APO system is installed, so you have advantage of faster transfer of data through network.

if you have any constraints, then you can get installed in any server you prefer.

with regards,
