How do I upgrade my EP hardware from single server to a cluster?



We are on EP6.0 SP11, which contains Portal and KM.

I have two J2EE server processes running on the same machine in the Production environment. The database is also running on the same machine.

Now, I have two objectives:

1. I want to separate my database and put it on a separate server.

2. I want to add dialog instances to support and load-balance the current central instance.

Here are my questions:

1. Can I separate my database and put it on another separate server without affecting my current installation? If yes, how? If no, what is the alternative? Do I need to do a fresh "distributed" installation?

2. Assuming that I have separated my database server, do I just go on adding dialog instances to my current installation for load-balancing? The SAPInst gives us the "distributed" installation option, but that would mean that I will have to start the installation of WebAS from scratch.

3. If I do add dialog instances to my current installation, how do I replicate the KM content (that resides on the central instance) onto the dialog instances?

Kindly assist me in this regard. I promise to assign points to all those who can help me find the best solution to achieve my objectives.

Thanks and Regards,
