    After you have checked http://service.sap.com/swdc if your OSS user does not see required software you should contact your sap responsible to get authorization for the software required. This is the case usually with BO products.

    hi,

     

    BO supports support oracle, mssql , db2, maxdb as its database.

    it depend on you want to keep the database as ECC system or any DB.

     

    BO system have mainly 2 database- 1.)  MSSQL ( that is its internal database that is install during installation) 2.) depend on your requirment ( any database or any ECC or BI system)

     

    there is no rule that u have to install Netweaver you can use the database as oracle also in place of any NW system.

     

    for Oracle to work with BO system  you need to install JDBC driver for the communication

     

    regards,

    Meenakshi

      Thanks Meenakshi,

       

      so as per my understanding i can install BO on any server which is having SAP( ECC or BI) or even if not having SAP also i can install( oracle db is must be install).

       

      BO system have mainly 2 database- 1.)  MSSQL ( that is its internal database that is install during installation) 2.) depend on your requirment ( any database or any ECC or BI system)

       

      will BO installation install MSSQL db?

       

      If you give some major steps that could help me a lot.

      for BO components please see above my requirement.

       

      Thanks,

      Venkat

        Dear Venkat,

        You can even install SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0 to your laptop nowadays. I have tried with windows 7 x64 4gb ram it worked but performance issues. So having installed on Windows 2008 Server with bundled Microsoft SQL Server would be a choice.

        Oracle db is not must and after you have installed with default bundled database you can always migrate easily from MSSQL to oracle or any other DB.

         

        BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0 contains bundled MSSQL you can choose this while installing.

         

        Please check SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0 PAM for more compatibility options.

        Please refer to following link for BO installation and integration with BW  http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/BUSINESS+OBJECTS+INSTALLATION+%28BOXI+%29+and+INTEGRATION+WITH+SAP+BW

         

        I hope this would be useful.

        Best Regards.

          SAP Business Objects Information Platform Services 4.0 (IPS)

          SAP Business Objects DataServcies (Server + Client)  4.0

          Hi Gurus,

           

          Now i got some clear idea and going to install BO.

           

          but i have another doubt.

           

          As i mensioned above i want install different BO components, suppose i want go with below steps.

          Install JDK 1.5

          SAP Business Objects Information Platform Services 4.0 (IPS) with inbuilt bundled Microsoft SQL Server.

          for next installation of SAP Business Objects DataServcies (Server + Client)  4.0 which database do i need to use earlier bundled SQL server?  or do i need to select any other difference?

           

          suppose in sap we can install multiple components on one DB with different dbSID.

          but here how can i go ahead?

           

          Please help me.

          Thanks in advance.

          Venkat

            Dear Venkat,

            Jdk installation would not be required. You can install SAP Business Objects with bundled MSSQL or you can select any other database during installation. For SAP Business Objects DataServcies you can  use the same database by simply creating new schema in that database but please consider RAM within the OS since SAP Business Objects best works with 6 GB or more RAM. Dataservices also need around same.

            For this questions you urged me to create a installation steps guide for both BOE and dataservices.

            I will be posting soon than you can have more clear idea in the pre installation installation and post installation phases.

            Best Regards.

              Dear Said,

               

              Thanks for your help.

               

              i have done my first SAP BO Information Platform Services 4.0 installation successfully.

               

              Now am going for remaining components. but having one doubt(how to use one db for all components)

               

              For SAP Business Objects DataServcies you can  use the same database by simply creating new schema in that database ----> could you please explain me how do i create schema?

               

              am using existing MS SQL server 2008 R2 as db.

               

              Thanks,

              Venkat
