Enabling and Disabling Shared-Disk Mode

Turn on or turn off shared-disk mode, which allows you to run multiple SAP Control Center agents and servers from a single installation on a shared disk.

Install SAP Control Center on a shared disk. See the SCC-product-name Installation Guide.

Shared-disk mode affects the entire installation; do not enable or disable individual instances.

Disabling shared-disk mode leaves the instances’ file systems intact under <SCC-install-directory>/instances, but the instances cannot run. If you reenable, the instances are able to run again.

  1. Change to SCC-3_3/bin.
  2. Enable or disable shared disk mode.
    To enable shared disk mode:
    sccinstance -enable
    To disable shared disk mode:
    sccinstance -disable
