    Hi Chandresh ,

    Yes You can do this .

    You can install different SAP instances each on its own database. Also keep your Listners different too.

    Hope this is useful.

      Hello,

      I confirm this is possible but I would not advise to do it if possible to avoid it.

      You're looking for weird problems...

    Yes its possible, we have SRM, R3 and XI all running on a development server.

    No problems, just when the installer prompts you, remember to give a different Oracle listner port number, as stated previously.

    yeah, it can be done, I have SAP enterprise 4.6 and 4.7 installing in the same machine with different version of oracle database.

    both of it running on it's on and cause no problem at all.

    as mentioned above, just pay extra careful when setting the listener.

    Hi,

    Installation:

    )Create separte file systems for each instance

    Specify sepate Listner (port ) e.g if you used 1521 for first listner then use 1522 for second listner . you also have a option of using the same listner but i suggest to use separate .

    2) Also distribute the physical memory wisely i.e. considering the user load on each instance etc.

    Post Installation:

    When shutting down the server make sure that you have stopped the other instance properly.

    hope this is useful

    Regards

    Umesh
