SAP Database Server

Hi,

I would like to install ECC 6.0 with Oracle 10.0.2.4, but the question is, if is possible to put all databases in one server.

DEV + QAS + PRD (DB) in one server and the SAP would be on other server.

This instalation will be on Linux, and on the SAP Instalation Guides does not any reference to this kind of instalation.

Can you help me?

Kind regards in advance,

Nuno Silva

    Hi,

    It's technically possible but it is, in my opinion, a very bad idea.

    The production system is much more critical than DEV and QAS.

    By definition you will make some tests on the DEV system. You will need much more often to reboot the server. You may crash the production system because of problems on DEV or QAS. And so on...

    Regards,

    Olivier

    You want to consider the impact of database patches. If you have DEV and PRD on the same server you can't test the effects of a patch on DEV without jeopardizing PRD.

    Then there's security. Putting everything together makes it harder to restrict access to just one system but if you're considering do this you probably don't segregate duties between DEV and PRD anyways.

    Hello Nuvo,

    SAP would not recommend this sceanario at all. You need to have a completely seperate Production and QAS system. Otherewise you are not able to successfully test any patching, inclusing a database patch without affecting your PRD system.

    Best practise is to put PRD on a different server

    you can put DEV + QAS on one server and PRD on a different server

    cheers
