Installation of J2EE Adapter Engine with DB on different host
I don't know if this is the right thread, but hopefully it is.
I have got following assignment:
I have to install NW70 PI/XI J2EE Adapter Engine. The trouble is, that due to a CI and DB hosts politics it's necessary to have database on different host than the central instance is.
But unfortunatelly the "SAPINST" program and its choice of J2EE Adapter Engine installation doesn't offer the possibility to install the product (J2EE AE) as a distributed system. SAPINST simply installs J2EE AE on one host including database. I've not succeeded the find a work-around.
I got two ideas, but I would like to confirm them:
1) Instal full SAP Java AS as a distributed system. After proper installation and patching I would use a SDM tool and deploy all necessary components to get a J2EE Adapter Engine "like" system. The only problem is that I don't know exact difference between normal SAP Java AS and SAP J2EE Adapter Engine and I'm not sure where could I get all necessary .SAR files.
2) Make a installation of SAP J2EE Adapter Engine as SAPINST allows. After installation and pathing, shutdown the system and move database to desired host, change all settings and start SAP J2EE AE as a distributed system. Only thing I'm not sure about is, if the J2EE AE would run in such a landscape.
Could anyone help me to get out of this deadend ?
