Query - Installing SAP on existing database
We have a requirement to install Solution Manager 7.0 on a host where PI 7.1 is already installed.
What would be a good approach to install? (MCOD, multiple ora homes etc..)
1. Both are going to be used as test systems.
2. We would like to have the facility of using the systems independent of each other ie. only one system will be "ON" at a time
3. As per installation pre-requisites, the OS (Windows) and DB (Oracle) versions are compatible with both systems.

I woudl go with multiple ora homes.
MCOD is putting both of your eggs in the same basket and can be a pain to administer. If you ever plan on splitting those 2 instances and you have chosen MCOD, it will be a pain.
2 ORACLE_HOME is the best way to go.
