Adding another application server.
My company is having 2 system landscape.
DEV & QAS in one and PRD in one server.
in recent years, my company is growing faster.
i.e increasing number of End users and database growth.
and now the task is to add 2 or more application servers.
my doubts about application server are as follows:-
1 *Deploying application server means is tht installation of sap central instance in
new server or installing an Dailog instance ?
2 *How to add new installed application server to the existing land scape ?
3 *how to group up the added application servers in to a group , so that the
user will get connected to sap by tht group of application server?
requesting you to give some inputs on adding new application server and
solution for database growth ?
I am guessing that you wish to add extra application servers to PRD.
1.That being the case, you need to install Dialog instances on the new servers.
2. They do not need to be added to the Landscape in terms of STMS (transport system), they just appear as application servers on the PRD system
3. Use transaction SMLG to create a Logon Group and add in the new application servers to that group. Then the users need to access that group rather than the Central Instance, which relieve load. See the SAP Help on Logon Load Balancing for this.
