With the zip distribution, you can install multiple distinct installations of the component products within a single operating system instance. You can even install the zip distribution on a system with an existing directory server packaging installation. The following constraints apply when installing multiple installations on a single system:
Each instance must be configured so that the total resources (RAM, CPU, and disk) that are consumed by the sum of all instances on the server do not exceed the available resources.
Each installation must have its own distinct installation path.
Each installation must have its own agent port.
With the introduction of Solaris 10 zones, you can also install different versions and installations of the package version of DSEE. In this case, each installation must be contained within its own unique Solaris 10 whole root zone.
