SAP on HP-UX Hardware.

Hi,

I want to know is it possible to have only Production Instance running on HP Itanium architecture hardware and DEV/QA instance on PA-RISC architecture hardware. Will there be any problem with testing for e.g. if some testing has been done on DEV/QA and later if we transport those changes to Production will it work? Or will be there any other problem?

Thanks,

Narendra

    Yes,

    As mentioned by Micheal - It creates lots of issues which you cannot even identify and reproduce in your test environment

    Just use same architecture for your entire landscape.

    Transport request is a hardware independent issue. You shouldn't face with a problem.

    Hello,

    The only issue would be with kernel updates.

    They use different kernels. Would have different ct_run directories

    to apply kernel patches

      Theoretically possible, but you should never do that:

      - different SAP Kernels (as mentioned)

      - if the DB runs on the same server, different DB software

      - 11.31 does not run on all PA-RISC hardware

      - not possible to compare application performance before running in production

      You will encounter situations where a problem occurs only on the prod environment and you definitely don't want this to happen. Always try to keep your landscape simple and homogeneous. This saves you a lot of trouble in the long run.

      Cheers Michael
