I have installed the crystal server client tools 2013 on the machine where Crystal server 2011 is present. After this Crystal server has started giving error:
The error is:
HTTP Status 500
descriptionThe server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.
What should I do to resolve it? Do I need to reinstall the server.
I am working with BO CMC publications setup. after checking with expertise, JAVA SDK can help in modifying the parameter of the publications like back end processing.
Please guide me through on how to work with JAVA SDK. a walk through document would be much helpful.
I have moved the universe from DEV to PROD insted of copy. after MOVE i have lost the universe from DEV folder then the reports pointing to the DEV are not working . Now my DEV universe is moved , there is no universe in DEV Folder then i have placed my back up universe in to DEV folder and returns with the error named "You do not have the right to access data returned by this universe. (Error: INF )" , If i try to edit the qurey returns with error named "No business layer sent back from server" and i try to change source of my DEV reports but the Change Source option is disabled.
The below options i have tried
1. Refresh Structurre of universe and Exported
2. Request the universe and connection access from BO admin team (They have refused)
Please suggest me if there any work around.
Thanks in advanse.
Need your inputs/best practice approach to move the WEBI Reports which is connected to BW backend in the same and different landscape.
we have the below type of systems
System 1: DEV BO 4.0 connected with DEV BW
System 2: QA BO 4.0 connected with QA BW
System 3: TST BO 4.0 connected with TST BW System
System 4: PRD BO 4.0 connected with PRD BW System
Note: we are using Pre-defined user id and password option in OLAP connection
Q1: Moving the WEBI reports from system 1 to system 2 within the same Landscape
a)we need to move the WEBI reports without any BW dependency connection or WEBI Reports with BW connection?
b) what will happen in both scenario?
c) Is the Connection override option for OLAP connection is the right choice here?
Q2: Moving the WEBI reports from system 1 to system 2 within the different Landscape
a) Are we have only the BIAR option to move the WEBI Reports and BW connection between different landscape
b) how we can change the BW connections for WEBI reports after moving from source to destination,
for my scenario, moving the reports from system2 to system3(both are in different landscape)
c) Required to update manually in the CMC or how OLAP connection will update for all the moved reports
Need your inputs and guidance for this query, it will great help for us.
We use Business Objects XI3 SP5. Our users and the BO server are in Domain A. They log in to Infoview with SSO. That works fine.
Now we want to migrate our users to Domain B. There is a full two-way trust between the two domains.
To accomplish that we added a AD group from Domain B in CMC under Authentication -> Windows AD.
Furthermore we modified the krb5.ini.
When a user now log in to Domain B en open the link to Infoview we see that single-sign-on tries to login the user, but gets the error that the user is not authorisied to use the application.
We checked that the new AD group has the proper right within BO ( CMC -> Applications).
I can see that the user that tried to log in is created within BO.
We used kinit to verify that kerberos works fine from a Domain B account.
When I manual tries to login I get an error that says the Active Directory Groups for the account cannot be retrieved. The same error I gets when I try to logon with the Desktop Intelligence tool on the server.
Since 1,5 year we see an error in the CMS trace log that says:
assert failure: (.\ADQueryEngine.cpp:375). (0 : WINAD: ADQueryEngine::Query() -- No short name!).
This log grows very fast with this error every day (20 MB in haf an hour).
I do’nt now if this has a realtion with our probleem.
We are now out of options. I hope someone can help us.
I have been trying to install SAP BI 4.1 SP2.
I have carried out the pre-requisites - updated user priviliges, DEP Config, UAC updated, Anti-Virus Disabled.
I have also installed - Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64).
I saw a recommendation to install the following but all it did was run and do nothing - i.e. no completion icon appeared so not sure if it did installed. In any case this was recommended with errors when patching rather than full install. Not sure if this is even related but trying anything
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update (x64)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update (x32)?
I still get errors when doing the install - I think it is related to the SQL Server being external rather than on the same box. Is there a way to test the DB for CMS has been setup ok?
Samples of the errors i get are below...

As I could not login to the CMS i restarted the BI Box. Then i login as admin and for some reason i can create folders but cannot delete them. I cant assign access rights to anything. Really weird...
I have copied a custom logo to "S:\SAP BusinessObjects\tomcat\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\eclipse\plugins\webpath.CmcApp\web\images" directory. I restarted the tomcat and it all works fine and I see the new logo at logon page.
My issue is that I had to a run a Wdeploy and that has replaced the custom logo back to SAP logo.
So I had to redo it. Is there a permanent place where I can copy it so that Wdeploy does not overwrite it.
Thank you for reading this and thank you in advance.
This is pretty new to me, I have installed Crystal Server several times before but never had to do much with it and the person that looked after it left a year ago.
So I have been tasked to migrate all the data from our current SAP Crystal BO 4 server to another.
It gets slightly complicated, the company I used to work for was recently acquired and now they want me to move the BO server across to their data-centre on their domain but keeping all the data intact, more the reports not the historical data. I understand that I might have to change a few things but don't want to recreate all the reports and dependencies. At the same time the IT team will now have to look after the reporting.
The new company doesn't currently have any reporting system in their environment and thus want to use ours going forward.
I have read several documents and forums but just can't seem to find a method that will do the trick.
The new BO 4 server is up and running at the same function level/SP as the current production server.
So I have tried Promotion Management, I added pretty much everything needed, then managed the dependencies and exported without any errors, on the new server I get an error(in the background) straight up when importing, although it sits and spins around for ages but nothing come from it.
I looked at using Crystal Reports to save the reports and then import them but after speaking to the person that managed it back in the day she advised me its not just as simple as that, there is a few things that needs to be done to make the report work again.
I read about coping the input data folder and importing the DB directly but figured that would not have a good outcome in the end.
Is there anyone that had done something similar, or know how to get it across with the least amount of trouble. Even if it's a bit of work as long as I can get it across, that will be great.
The last resort will be to learn how the entire system works and at least get the reports across but then fix up all the dependencies, schedules etc.
Just not sure where to start to be honest.
Thank you again.
I built Infoset Query on top of table HRP5125 via T.Code SQ02.
The problem happened when I retrieved data in IDT but the odd thing was that not all data cannot be retrieve. Some columns I could retrieve the data while the other I could't during loading data in IDT. However, when I viewed all data via SQ01, I could see all of them and none of them got any problem.
Below is the error when I retrieve data from column ORGID in IDT.

With focus on my research (have checked and tested with soapUI), WSDL interface of BO seems not to be sufficient to fullfil the upper requirements, so I have to use BO Java SDK, which is powerful enough. Am I right ? Can you provide insights how to fullfil the requirements with the web service interface ? Would make whole implementation simpler (invocation from Tibco, ESB implementation).
I'm looking for a way to upload an SDK-Extension to BI platform without using Design Studio and haven't found any yet. Does anybody know whether that is possible in general?
I developed application in design studio including an extension component, published it to my bi-platform and installed this extension there too. It runs in my environment smoothly. Now I have a challenge to transport this application to other BI platform and to get it to work. On the other BO -environment there are none BI tools besides CMC and BI-Launchpad. The transport with CMC Promotion Management is done and everything runs well without extension. If I start the ds application including extension, I get follow error:
Web Item with name “COM_SAP_SAMPLE_TIMER_TIMER” could not be found in current Web Application.
That’s because the extension doesn’t exist on the BI platform.
Do you have any idea, how can I handle it?
we have BusinessObject 4.0 SP2 PL 12.
My director asked me to close export on web server.
we remove export authorization from user, the export bottom became deemed.
But when try to print, we received the following error:

I work on an application Java which connects to BO 3.1 and posts all the webis of the reference table, extracts the requests, the universes and the objects of a report Webi I want to migrate to the version 4.1 of BO, I have to use the jars of the version 4.1 but I have the following exception :
Exception in thread "Thread-4" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.rsa.jsafe.CryptoJ.isFIPS140Compliant()Z
Exception in thread "Thread-3" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class com.businessobjects.bcm.BCM
There are the jars I use:
Hi everyone, I have been working with Mutli tenancy management tool in BO 4.1 SP4 , which is a very good tool , let's you automate Tenant creation easily. However, I have seen few issues with this tool
1) it doesn't create Top Level Security (Manage->Top Level Security-> Users/Groups/Events etc.)
2) It doesn't create Security on Applications and we have to Manually add security on each and every application for each group , kind of makes this tool redundant
3) it doesn't create Users or add Sub groups under one Main group
eg: under Root Groups I have a Group like "Audit Group" and want to create all tenant groups under this group, which is not possible. But the same is possible with Folders (as you can add this in Template.properties file) but same is not avaialable for Groups
Did anyone run into these issues and found any solutions? These limitations makes this tool useless (well not entirely, but ...) and you still end up setting up all these access on top level manually for all the groups you have.
I called SAP Support and the reponse I got is, since it's not working and not mentioned in document, that is expected behavior and I can add these in Idea place. But Me thinks these shortcoming are bugs and not "Intended behavior" of this tool.
So, kind of reaching our to everyone to see if you all faced these issues. Let me know if you have any kind of info regarding these..
We are currently testing DCP on BI4.1, in CMC we have set permission access on Desktop Intelligence Application to "View on Demand". Using this permission setting, we can open Deski Client and import/refresh Deski report from BI4. However the issue we have is that the "schedule" icon is disabled and cannot be selected.
When the permission access is changed to "Full Control", the "schedule" button is enabled.
I wanted to know if anyone knows which precise subset of Deski rights that will enable or disable the "schedule" button in Deski Client.
None of the rights selection have schedule in the description, so not exactly sure which one enables it.
I have recently installed Power Query for Microsoft Excel in MS Office 2013.
I can connect successfully to the all the BI Universes, create queries & design reports in Excel.
The problem that I have is that I can only do this with the Administrator account. The Admin account is the only account that can connect successfully to the BI universes.
I have created test user accounts,test groups and assigned security to basically reflect the same rights as the Admin group, but to no avail.
I have also assigned security to these users & groups on the application level (RESTful Web Service, Universes, Connections) , but no luck.
It constantly says : "Access to the Resource is forbidden"
The last thing I want to do is make the users part of the Administrator group. I'm sure you guys would agree that that would be like opening Pandora's Box
Can anybody explain the procedure for enabling SAML 2.0 SSO in SAP Business Object 4.0 SP5 in Detail?
I have gone through the Admin Guide of SAP BO 4.0 SP5. Page no. 219 - 221 explains how to enable Trusted Authentication and how to enable SAML using Trusted Authentication but that information is not very helpfull.
Also explain what information SAML passes exactly while doing SSO? Can we pass windows AD credentials for SAML SSO? If yes, then how?
Any help on this, will be appriciated.
I have SAP Business Objects BI Platform 4.1 running on window servers and sql server database. We want to migrate this to AIX and oracle.
Can you please share what should be the best approach to carry on this migration?
We are facing a slowdown in BO server often where the BI launchpad is unable to be opened in browser. 'Page not responding' message is dispayed.
In the event logs we found the following :
Server Intelligence Agent: server IRLSAPBOPROD.WebIntelligenceProcessingServer is being recycled.
The default web application server being used in Tomcat 7.0.32. Inspite of the tomcat service being running most of the time in CCM, we can witness that the BI launchpad is not opening. The only option to recover from this is manual restart of Tomcat service and we are looking at a preventive measure. Please help in tracing the root cause.
We have done a side by side installation of BO4.1, with BOXI3.1 sp5.
Via BOXI3.1 sp5 we are able to run webi based reports, but we unable to do the same from bo4.1.[Attached Error]
We have made the necessary changes in the odbc.ini & .profile file to point to the proper drivers
below are the entries made in the ODBC.ini file
The .profile also has the below entries in the library path
