For testing purposes it might be useful to have more than one instance of SAP Strategy Management available on the same unix server and, in this case, it becomes necessary to distinguish between the existing lsserver services. For a production environment, it is usually recommended that a separate server is used, to avoid any possibility of errors when maintaining the contents and configurations.
When only one instance of SAP Strategy Management is installed on a unix system, it is not necessary to change the name of lsserver service used by the product and the initial name can be kept. In a test environment on a unix system, it might be useful in some cases to have more than one instance of Strategy Management installed for testing purposes.
There are some specific steps required for this configuration of SAP Strategy Management on unix.
The additional main service of Strategy Management Application Server, usually called “lsserver” by default, needs to be assigned a different name.
To change the name of lsserver service, the lssmap file needs to be edited by adding the entries required to identify the additional service.
The two different “lsserver” services will rely on the same lsstld, which acts similar to the SAP Strategy Management Listener service on Windows system, and needs to be unique.
Because only one version of lsstld can run at a time, the tldgo from the most recent version installed should be used to launch and run lsstld.
Therefore similarly the “lssmap” file from that most recent version should be updated as explained above, so it contains references to both versions of Strategy Management PAS service.
To stop and restart only one of the two environments, it is sufficient to just restart the relevant JPIP. Restarting the listener will have effect on both environments, because the listener serves both; it is not known to cause problems.
An additional activity is then required for the use of the PAS Administrator, because two different entries need to be set in the lsserver.ini file to distinguish between the two SSM servers.
Additional details and explanations can be found in the documentation for Strategy Management product, e.g. in the Administrator's Guide SAP BusinessObjects Strategy Management Application Server 7.5 Series chapter 7.
