Installing Additional Instances:


  1.   /sapmnt directory is mounted on pofapp02

When we get SWPM home screen we need to go to this path for installing the additional instances:

Software Provisioning Manager 1.0 SP22 –> SAP NetWeaver 7.5 –> Oracle –> Installation –> Additional SAP System Instances  –> Additional Application Server Instance


Also when giving the instance number for additional instances specify other than the one we specified for PAS in the below screen shot:
