Last updated on JULY 30, 2018

Oracle Communications IP Service Activator - Version 7.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


We would like to install and run 2 instances of IPSA on the same host at the same time but the installer fails when installing the second instance.

We have tried the following options to install the second instance in same Solaris box.

1) IPSA Instance is installed in one mount point (/app1)
2) Installing second IPSA instance in different mount(/app2)point with different OS user.

While installing we are getting error " already IPSA home directory is installed in /app1/OracleCommunications" It specifies either to upgrade or uninstall that and try to install.
