How to Install HCI?
Installing HCI means installing SAP Data Services Agent

Where do we install HCI?
While the SAP Data Services Agent is based on SAP Data Services technology, the two are not interchangeable. Additionally, for Windows host systems, the agent cannot be installed on a host system where SAP Data Services has already been installed. (This restriction does not apply to Linux host systems.)
