    Hey folks,


    So here is the conundrum -  we are in a situation where we have to move to a new server.

    We intend to build it out in parallel and the switch over.


    We have spent a few years on 4.1 and have the server and settings tweaked to our needs.


    SAP Support has said that the best is to do a CMS database copy as long as both environments are levelled to the same SP/Patch level.


    What about all the BOBJ Stack server settings? Are they stored in the CMS database or are the definitions/command line settings stored in

    a local profile?

    I have migrated older reports into a new Crystal Server installation. We are experiencing a problem when printing and since I'm not getting any errors on the server nor the client computer is becoming difficult to solve. When printing multipage documents the browser closes the session and we are only getting a partial print from the job.

    May be related to the Activex print control but it is getting difficult to trace as we do not get any error messages.

    Any guidance will be appreciated.

  • 07/16/15--09:28: Unsupported SSO Scenario
  • I am attempting to achieve end-to-end SSO from SAP BI Platform 4.1 SP6 and SSAS using Kerberos.  Following steps in KBAs 1631734 and 1688079 have got me to the point where SSO into BI Platform works (yay), and we can browse SSAS cubes with A-OLAP when Authentication is set to "Prompt".  But when I set Authentication to "SSO", A-OLAP displays "Login failed. Invalid user name or password" and in the logs I find the following:


    |E7260689FE274592AE7DBF2ACB23D2071d|2015 07 15 22:31:31.413|+0000|Error| |==|E| |BIlaunchpad| 4404|  46|http-bio-8080-exec-3| |16|0|0|0|BIlaunchpad.WebApp|BA0922:4404:46.523:1|-|-|BIlaunchpad.WebApp|BA0922:4404:46.523:1|CuxftZ0580H7oeCneiACA.s246|||||||||com.

Caused by: Unsupported SSO scenario.


    I've checked and double-checked every related setting on the servers and Active Directory.  Clearly I'm missing something.


    Does anybody know what "Unsupported SSO scenario" indicates?

    (I am not sure why my discussion thread was deleted as I COULDN'T FIND WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR in this Community Network) and the moderator implied that I did not search!)


    I'm re-posting in hopes that the moderator is not going to remove again without showing me where the discussion thread is as I can't find any!



    Hopefully someone can assist.  I need to create a new Security group that belongs to Administrator that would only allow that group (as far as administrator rights are concerned) to reset passwords but still able to run/view  reports?


    In another words, what is/are the granular permissions that I need to set for BI 3.1 SP1?


    In my case, we're also running CE10 so I'm not sure if this is possible for this version too as it doesn't have options to set permissions at the granular object level.

    Hi all,

    We are currently running a clustered environment and are using Websphere7 as application server for our BO 4.0 server. we currently have all these installed on four servers



    server 1: web application server (Websphere 7)



    server 2: CMS and some Webi processing servers



    server 3: Webi Processing servers and Olap servers



    server 4: Crystal Servers and Other remaining servers



    we updated the servers with BO 4.0 SP8 service pack recently and now I'm looking to redeploy war files to websphere 7 server.

    To redploy war files, where do I run WDeploy WEBSPHERE7 predeploy? I am thinking

    step1) I should run this on server 2 (where CMS is) and package them and copy it over to web sphere 7 server (server1) and

    step2) using web sphere 7 admin console, I can deploy these applications. is my understanding correct?



    any details steps I'm missing or corrections would be very helpful

    You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

    You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest


    It appears that this is a 32bit library. I tried to complete  the install, but it fails at the Prerequisite check.  How do I work around this?

    Hi Experts,


    I encounter a problem when trying to add multiple sources of 2 HANA Systems, both of which I have already created some HANA Models(Information Views) that are to be consumed by a BO universe. To make my point more comprehensive, let's say I have 2 HANA systems: HDA and HDB. And I have created views named CV_1 in HDA, located at _SYS_BIC schema, and CV_2 in HDB, also located at HDB. When I drill down to see the CVs in the _SYS_BIC schema in BO IDT, I can only see them in the first system, in this case HDA, but I can't see anything in HDB's _SYS_BIC schema. If I put HDB ahead of HDA, I can see views in HDB's _SYS_BIC schema but this time I am not able to see anything in HDA's _SYS_BIC schema. 





    The privileges of which the HANA users(both named SAPBO) that IDT connections using are guaranteed to be correctly assigned.


    BO system version: 4.1 SP3

    HANA system version: HDA Rev95 and HDB Rev82


    My question is, does IDT not support the same type of DB system when using multiple sources? Or does is it because of the version mismatch of the 2 HANA systems?


    By the way, can we change the runtime objects location(schema) of which the HANA models will reside from default _SYS_BIC to another?


    Thanks a lot in advance for any inputs.

    We've requirement to configure the SSO for the SAP BO 4.1 SP04 Patch 5 system using the SAML and Shibboleth.


    We've SAP BO Enterprise users and REMOTE_USER with the same name. We need to bypass the BI launchpad login screen while users login using the Remote_User id.


    I've reviewed the BO admin guide on the "Trusted Authentication for SAML single sign-on" and few other forum topics. But it gives me very less clarity on fixing this. Could anyone, please help me with step by step process.


    Environment : SAP BO 4.1 SP04 Patch 5

    Web Application Server : Tomcat 7


    Thank you.

    Hello All,


    I have requirement where I need to build a summary report based on a detail report, which includes RunningSum. The requirement in terms of EFashion is something like:- For each store, I need to identify the count of SKUs which contribute to top 50% of my Revenue.

    I want to have Summary Report that shows Store and SKU count, and a detailed report which shows Store, SKU, Revenue, Contribution, etc.


    I have attached the detail report. For this store the summary report should show SKU count as 3.

    Any suggestion on this? My problem is that Running Contribution uses RunningSum which is based on result set in the block and won't give required result if I remove SKU dimension. So, in nutshell, I need to apply RunningSum at SKU level without actually showing SKU dimension in the block. Hiding SKU dimension won't help, as it won't aggregate and still show individual rows.


    Any suggestions?

    Hi Experts,


    We have currently migrated from Business Objects 4.0 to 4.1 SP5 . What we are observing is a lot of reports are showing incorrect formula outputs because the formulas were designed based on UK date format dd/mm/yyyy however in 4.1 they are appearing in 4.1 SP5 in yyyymmdd format .


    I tried changing the date format in  \dataaccess\connectionserver\oledb\extensions\legacy\oledb.prm and also played around BI launchpad preference from browser locale to English(UK) but nothing worked .


    I observed GetPrferredViewingLocale() is returning EN_US .


    Kindly suggest what to do here .

  • 07/17/15--06:11: redirecting HTTPS for BO

  • Hi All,

    I am new in installing BO and I have found a problem while redirecting HTTPS for BO.

    IIS redirect for HTTPS is too slow for the BO 4.1 webi reports specially for the reports which has long query. It takes 1 hr and then hangs. If we run same report on tomcat on http it works perfectly in 4 mins but if redirect it through iis server it hangs and never refresh.We ran IIS without HTTPS (on port 80) and there wasn’t any issue with the timeouts and slowness. When we switch to HTTPS (on port 443), we were experiencing the issue. Configuration of both ports is the same, both ports are communicating with Tomcat on same port with HTTP. This points out that issue is really in HTTPS. we tried to install apache web server and redirected the ssl it has same slowness for reports.

    I am wonderig if the refreshing timeout is hardcoded somehow with HTTP in the version SBOP BI PLATFORM 4.1 SP05 SERVER WINDOWS (64B)?

    Any suggesiton is welcome.

    I've made some changes (Changed some variables) in a BEx query, which gives me a new prompt and prompt text.


    I can see the changes in BW->RSRT and in the query designer, but if I use the OLAP connection on the BO Platform, I only see the old prompts.

    If I add another dimension to the free characteristics, I can see and use it, but I still get the old prompts.


    I've tried the following:

    • Changed the OLAP connection (To another query and back)
    • Created a new OLAP connection (Here I see the right prompts...)
    • Added an object to the BEx query
    • Tried to remove and re-apply the variable


    I am using BW 7.3 and BO 4.1 SP 4 Patch 2.


    I consider this an error, which I will report to SAP, but until this has been fixed I would appreciate any help I can get.


    Thanks in advance!

  • 07/20/15--07:31: SAP B1 SLD Appdata Logs
  • Hi all,


    I've noticed that one of my user's local Windows profiles is pretty large.


    Digging down, I've found that they have nearly 11Gb of "log" files in:

    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\SAP\SAP Business One\Log\SLD\


    An example of the "log" file is "sldService.log.2014-02-05"


    Is it safe to delete these files?


    Thanks to all in advance.
