Hi Abhijeet,
Better use two different systems. HP recommands that HPOV Application and DB Server should be different.

thanks for your reply,
but my customer need to implement on one server itself... and can you just clear my doubts regarding the issues i can face...and as your are telling OVOW and DB server should be seperate then why the option of local database is given at the time of installation

Hi,

previoulsy with OVO and OVSD 4.5 they shared some of the same registry keys and having both on the same physical server was not recommended by HP.

It was possible to get the two running on the same server but issues were know to arise from time to time.

I think HP will recommend seperate boxes for the installs. It would be advisable to check with HP support to see where they stand on this from a support point of view in case you get it working intially but run into problems later on.
