We are into implementation . We are planning to install two instance in one server. Dev & Qas in one server. Is there any standard procedure to be followed for it. when i tried the same in normal system i can install the first instance properly. But when i install second instance am ending with errors . I install the second instance when the first instance was up & running is it ok.

My platform is

SAP Ecc6 Ehp4

Windows 2003 server

Db2 9.5 Database.

Kinldy help me did i have to follow any standard procedure to follow in installing second instance with different SID & Sys no.

Can the first instance be running during the installation of second.

Thanks in advance!!!

    First instance doesn't create any problem but better you keep it down if possible.

    BTW, what kind of problem/error you face during second instance installation ? I hope you did go for separate DB2 software installation for second/QAS instance ?

    I read you are into 'implementation'. Unless there is a compelling reason, you should go for latest OS/SAP Release/DB release supported.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You need to install SAP with SIDADM so that it will use it own env. and correct system variable etc...

    So first through SAPINST create the users and than logoff and login with the SIDADM and continue the installation.

    It should not create any problem.

    Hi,

    For installing the second instance ensure that you keep SID, db ports, dbhome different from the 1st installation.

    This will ensure that 2nd installation does not interfere with your first instance.

    Ideally there is no need to stop the first instance. But keep separate drives dedicated for 2nd installation.

    Hope this is useful.

    > Windows 2003 server

    I would not use Windows 2003 for new installations, use Windows 2008 or Windows 2008 R2.

    If you use Windows 2003 you will not able to upgrade to EHP6 next year, Windows 2003 is no more supported.

    And:

    this is the same thread as in /thread/2100780 [original link is broken]
