Good day experts,

I am trying to install 2 independent SAP platform installs, but the second override the first. Here is the application architecture target:

Server 1:

SAP BI Platform 4.2 sp03

SAP Data Services 4.2 sp08

Server 2:

SAP IPS 4.2 sp03

SAP DS 4.2 sp08

SAP IS 4.2 sp08

Server 3:

SQL 2012

BI DB's : BI Repo CMC, BI Audit CMC


The first install on server 1 finishes 100% and tests are all successful. However, when installing IPS on server 2, it overrides the CMS password and cluster key when specifying during the IPS install, and cannot log into CMC anymore. Therefore, when IPS is installed successfully, the BI CMC cannot be opened.

How can i install IPS without it interfering with the BI config?

IPS install screens are all left default : (BI install on server 1 also followed default)

1 Install type = Full

2 Config existing DB(IPS own DB)

3 MS SQL Server (CMC)

4 MS SQL Server (Audit)

5 Default tomcat install

6 Config and install subversion

7 SIA info (default - Server name example SERVER2, port 6410)

8 CMS Info: 6400

9 Configure CMS (Password for Admin = CMS Cluster Key)

10 CMC DB (ODBC connection to IPS DB)

11 Audit DB (ODBC connection to IPS DB)

12 Config Tomcat (Default ports)

13 Conf subversion (Repo port default and repository acc passwrord)

14 Do not config SMD agent

15 Do not config connectivity to intro scope

16 Begin install

17 Complete successfully.

Then, this install overrides the server 1 BI CMC/CMS. Please can you advise to ensure the two installs can exist independantly?Is it because the two share a SQL instance?

this can only happen if the IPS install is using same CMS DB as the BI platform install.
Most likely your System DSN's on both servers point to the same DB.
