ESS from ERP 2005 installation with EP 7

We are planning the implementation of the ESS from ERP 2005. We know that ESS has to run with EP 7 (nw2004s). But does it have to be running in the same physical server as EP7? Or they can be seperated (i.e. EP7 on one box, and ESS/ERP with WAS 7 on another box). Is such distributed scenario supported?

Thanks a lot,

ESS is a business package that needs to be deployed in the Portal. There is no question of separating ESS from the Portal. Let me add some clarity here:

1. You install Portal.

2. You deploy ESS BP in the Portal.

3. You create a back-end connection say ER1 to your ERP

system in the Portal .

4. You assign the ESS system alias to the ER1 system object in your Portal. That is how ESS communicates with your back-end system.

5. You can only have distributed installation for your Portal. For instance: You install the CI and DB on separate servers.
