Can Datasynchronizer run on top of OES11?

As the title suggest I would like to run DS on a single box together with an OES11 server. Have tried to to add OES11 add package onto a working SLES11 DS setup, turning it into an OES11 server.. and the DS stopped working.

Guess it's not supported and we still need a separte SLES 11. But has anyone managed to get this working? Can it co exist? A seperate server for just an single iPhone sync is a often to much for our precious small business customers.

Cheers.

Maybe with some effort you could get it to work, but it's definitely
not supported. I would think that as long as you didn't have any OES
services running on any of the ports used by Mobility it could probably
work.

How about virtualization? A small business customer could use SLES 11
with KVM or Xen as the host & hypervisor, or use ESXi (free or paid)
from VMware. Then setup one OES11 VM for file, print, etc and have a
separate SLES 11 VM for Mobility. That way you still use just one
physical box for the customer. Plus you now have the flexibility to
setup other "servers" (VMs) as needed without having to worry about
additional physical boxes.

If I was going to attempt this I would bind multiple addresses to the
server. I than would customize so it listens on its own address instead of
the default address of the system. I would bet it can be done that way. Just
have to find everywhere that has to be implemented.

That should also work, but again wouldn't be supported. Mobility is
only supported on a standalone SLES 11 server. That's why I suggest
the virtualization route. That would be fully supported.
