Packages are deleted during installation in Leopard

  • I have two packages which are related, but not the same problem. A
    server component and a client component. I have configured the
    packages to use different package identifiers however as soon as I
    install one package any previous installation of the related package
    is removed. It seems like the Installer is finding the related package
    and considers the install to be an upgrade and removes any previously
    installed files. The result is that I can only have one or the other
    package installed at any point in time.

    Looking in the installer Log shows:

    and when I install the server again :

    The documentation mentions that the package identifier should be
    unique however it still seems to be able to construct a match for it.

    Any suggestion on what I need to configure for both packages to be
    installed at the same time.

    Kind regards
