MSSQL Homogeneous System Copy


We are deploying a Production CRM Distributed System on SQL Server. We did a fresh install back on 2013 of the development system, and after applying SPs we took a DB backup of the updated system. We save that backup for deploy QAS and finally PRD.

Now, we are installing PRD System with Homogeneous System Copy and distributed installation. The problem is that the Software Provisioning Manager we use for the other two installations don´t let us choose the destination drive for the Kernel files of the Database Instance. It seems that the sapinst is choosing a drive letter by itself. I need to change that destination drive and the sapinstgui don´t show me the option!!!

I´, using SWPM1.0 sp3. New SWPM (SP07) doesn´t have EHP3 for CRM 7.0 component and the option for destination drive is not shown anyway.

Is there any way to choose destination drive by modifying some xml control file, o something?

I managed to solve the problem with Benjamin Reagan suggestion. It seems that spinst chek for biggest drive and then picks up that drive as "Destination Drive".

I modified keydb.xml and inifile.xml.

In keydb.xml you need to modify this values:

- "saploc" and "sapmnt" in t_NW_Options section.

- "sapDrive" in t_NW_Systems

- "sapdrive" in t_pd

In inifile.xml you need to modify "sapdrive" value in t_pd section.

Thanks for all of you.
