    Hi Abhilasha,

    Start profile (called START_INTANCE<nr>_<hostname>) is used to define the "Start_Program_xx" commands that will start different processes needed for the SAp application server to run correctly.
    On the other hand, instance profile (called <SID>_INTANCE<nr>_<hostname>) is normally used to define the value of different
    parameters that only applies to the specific instance to which this profile correspond.

    "START_ASCS00_def100" will start ASCS processes from instance number 00; while PR1_ASCS00_def100 defines different parameters which apply for ASCS. Same explanation for Central Instance 00, running on host abc101, with START_DVEBMGS00_abc101 and PR1_DVEBMGS00_abc101 profiles.

    As of certain kernel version, SAP systems do no longer use separate profiles, and information is merged on one single instance profile.

    Regards,
    Raquel
