10. Enter the SAP System ID (SAPSID) HIA, keep the default value /sapmnt for SAP Mount Directory and click the Next button (Figure 5.9)

Note: SAPSID for SAP S/4HANA Application Server should be different as compare to DBSID (HID) that we used for SAP HANA Database in Part 4 (Figure 4.3) of this Blog. Remember if we will install any other Server in the same Data base, each server should have unique SAPSID, In the next part of this blog we will install S/4HANA Frontend Server so we will have to use a unique SAPSID (HIF) for that one.

Note: I am going to install Application in the same operating system where I have SAP HANA Database so do not need to add the host entry, but if you are installing Application in separate server than you have to add Host Name and IP Address in the hosts /etc/hosts file of application server. Remember for installing Application in the separate system you have create another Virtual Machine by following Part 1 of this blog and have to install the SUSE Linux operating system by following steps in Part 2 of this blog.
