BOE XI 3.1 Client Tools

During the BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1 instllation ->Install Type, I selected:
"New" and "Install MySQL Database server". Also check the check-box "Enable server upon installation"
Then continue with the installation. Completed succesffully.
This also means I have installed all the client-tools (Web Intelligent, Desktop Intelligent etc) on the server.
Now if the user need to the access to Webi and create and publish the query into CMS, how do they actually access to the WEBI?
Do we need to install the WEBI again on each of their machine?

Hi Stratos,
Thanks again for you explanation, that really make thing clear!!!
1) Use the web-based version of WebI. Your users will be able to create and view WebI reports using their internet browser.
If I am using this option, that's mean I dont have to install the Webi Rich Client on each users workstation as I have already install them on the BOE Server. All the user need to do is basically logon to BOE InfoView, then create and publish the Webi document on the BOBJ repository and the rest of the user can access them, correct?
2) Deploy the WebI richt client on the user's workstation. This stand-alone client tool allows you to develop and view WebI reports. You can then export the reports to the BOBJ repository and thus make them available for your report consumers, ho will use their browser to view the report (Option 1)
If I choose this option, I still install the Webi Rich Client form the BOE XI 3.1 (Server/client) software , but during the Install Type step, I choose Custom or Expand Install, correct?
Please advise, thank you,.

  • BOE-XI 3.1 Client Tools (SP4) Error

    BOE-XI 3.1 Client Tools (SP3) are installed OK on a Workstation...
    Business View Manager = 12.3.0.601
    Designer = 12.3.0.601
    WebIntelligence Rich Client = 12.3.0.601
    I have downloaded the "SBOP Enterprise Client Tools XI 3.1 ServicePack 4" files from the SAP Support site (ENTERPRISECLNT04_0-10007619.exe).
    When I run the EXE - it unzips the files for about 10 minutes and then starts the install - but quickly throws the error below...
    "The update installation cannot proceed because either the target product is missing or is not the correct version for this update. Verify that the product to be updated exists on your system and you have the correct patch."
    Anyone seen this error before - and know the fix...?
    Thanks in advance for any advice / suggestions.

    Hi Mark,
    This error may show up if have installed the client originally from the Server build, or the other way around.  You may check the registry, if it has key codes for the enterprise it means the client was installed by the server build.
    I have installed BOXI 3.1 sp4 clients on several machines no issue.
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks,

  • Installed BOE XI R3.1 Client tools now I cant open crystal reports?

    After I unistalled the client tools I cant open Crystal Reports from local drives. I can from BOE, but not local or network drives. Plus all the Icons from these drives have been removed. What did I do wrong?

    Need more info and it's not clear what you did or what is left on your PC but typically which ever CR product you still have installed going to the Add/Remove software and doing a Repair install on Crystal Reports Designer should fix the problem.
    Thank you

  • Not able to Install BOE XI 3.1 Client

    Dear All,
    I have BOE XI 3.0 Client tool installed on my system. Now i want BOE XI 3.1 Client Tool on same system.
    We have two server one is BOE XI 3.0 (Developement) and another is BOE XI 3.1 (Production)... So i want two Client in my system.
    How can i achieve this??
    I will really appreciate your suggestion.
    Regards,
    Rishit

    Ok, but I had a test machine with BO version 3.0, and I think I was able to connect to it with Client tools 3.1
    So, did you contemplate the idea of de-installing client 3.0, installing client 3.1 only, and try to access to your 3.0 server ?
    You will only have 3.1 client tools on your machine, and would be easier .

  • SAP BI Client tools are not communicating with BO server

    Hi Experts,
    We've recently installed BI 4.1 . We're having few issues:
    1. When client is installed on different machine then it is not communicating with server. We've already tried few things like untick auto assign from Request server and manually assign static port but it didn't work .
    2. Our BO Server is running on AWS Cloud.
    3. Client is communicating when installed on server machine.
    4. Could you please help our how to resolve this error.
    5. CMC and BI launch pad are installed on server side as they're web browser tool and we need to install these on client machine as well. Qns is Do we need to install them or provide just URL link? If just URL like where to get these URL links.
    6. We can't see SAP Lumira and SAP Dashboard on Service market place to install. Where we can find these software on Service maket place?
    7. Could someone please send screenshot to install Dashboard, Lumira, Analysis office and Crystal report enterprise and crystal report 2013.
    8. Do we need to install all these on client machine?

    10. As i know there is life cycle management tool but it is not even available from server side not even on client side. Could you please recommend how it can be installed??
    Thanks in advance.

    1. When client is installed on different machine then it is not communicating with server. We've already tried few things like untick auto assign from Request server and manually assign static port but it didn't work .
    Could you confirm that you are able to ping the BO server from Client machine. Also use telnet command from commandline of  CMD in client machine. It will help to confirm that port communication is successful. Use ipaddress:cmsport for the system while logging into the client software. Update the hosts file entries at client machine with BO server name and ip address. Create an exception for BO installation location at client machine and check the results

    Check on the server side first where your web server is installed (I am assuming tomcat in your scenario). Use http://serverame:8080/BOE/BI and http://servername:8080/BOE/CMC (8080 is default port. If it has been changed use the correct port).
    If its working well. Perform the same activity using ipaddress:8080 at server. Next chek whether using the same URL you are able to get BILaunchPad and CMC pages and able to login from the same.

  • BusinessObjects 4.1 Sp2 Client Tool setup Installer will not Start

    Hi Everyone
    Have installed BOE 4.1 sp2 server platform on a virtual machine running on Windows Server 2008 R2.  When I  tried to install the Client tools,   I execute the setup.exe program, it launches the run, when I click on  runs, nothing comes up.
    Any suggestion I will really appreciate it.
    Thanks 

    OK.  I think I may have misled you.  We tried installing BI4.0 on SQL Server 2012 and that didn't work (not supported according to the Supported Platforms documentation).  I just looked at the Supported Platforms document for BI4.1 and it shows the Client Tools should be supported on Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 and Server 2012.
    I'll try installing them and let you know.  We would like to have them on the server also.

  • Https call from SAP SOAP client tool

    Hi,
    in order to call a webservice via https using the SAP SOAP client tool, I've done the following:
    1. The Client cert field filled with my personal certificate from IE (pcert.pfx)
    2. The Trust store field left as it was (cacerts file of the jre).
    When calling the service I am getting
    javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: No trusted certificate found
    Very likely this is caused by setting 2.
    Could anybody advise how to get an X.509 certificate of trusted root CAs? Any chance to export from IE or would one have to get that from a CA? File types required are ppfx or p12, which is strange since these contain private keys.
    Much appreciated.
    Rene Funke

    Hi Rene,
    You need to include the full certificate chain in the p12 file. i.e. private cert and root CA cert.  IE will not export the full certificate path with the private certificate unless it was imported into IE with this flag set. You could use Firefox to generate the pks12 file. It will include the full certificate path.
    This private certificate (p12 file) should then be added to the truststore in XI.
    Also, .p12 (pkcs#12) file format defines a file format commonly used to store private keys with accompanying public key certificates - not just private keys.
    Hope this helps.

  • Edit .app file in excel and then open it in client tool?

    Dear Gurus,
    I am very new to HFM and would like to know what practice a HFM consultant will use in editing the metadata.
    My boss recommend me to edit metadata( .app file) in excel and save it into a format that can be read and opened by client tool.
    However, I find no way to achieve this.
    How can i edit metadata in excel and then open it in HFM client tool?

    Good morning,
    I think the best way to do it it's working with macros. You can work with an Excel file and then, convert it to the .txt format by using macros. A .txt is more suitable to be later worked as .app.
    However, you can also do it by using Copy/Paste.
    1. Open the .app in a Note Pad, so you can work with .txt file.
    2. Copy the .txt data in the Excel file.
    3. Then, it's just working with Data > Text to Columns to format the file. Then, you can work in Excel.
    Then, you will have to put the Excel file in a .txt, so you will have to follow the data files requirements. You still can do this manually, but you will have to pay attention to the format (FILE_FORMAT=11.1.2, !VERSION=11.1.3609, !CUSTOM_ORDER=Custom1;Custom2;Custom3;Custom4, !APPLICATION_SETTINGS, !CURRENCIES, etc., as it is the Admin Guide). It will also depend on the HFM version you're working with, specially when working with customs.
    I received a good document about a couple of months ago that can be helpful, so if you send me an email address, I'll forward it.

  • Change SAP BI Password from BO Client Tools / Infoview, SAP Authentication

    Hi,
    We are using SAP BI BO Integration Kit (BO XI 3.1, SAP BI 7.0) & able to use SAP BI Queries with WebI, Xcelsius etc.
    For a user group, we would be providing only Infoview access (using SAP Authentication). This means we would not want to install any BO Client Tools, SAP GUI or SAP Integration Kit Client, on user desktop.
    We are faced with a issue - How does the user change password from Infoview (this is an SAP BI User ID used to login from Infoview).
    Initial Password of SAP BI User cannot be changed from Infoview, since it doesnot prompt for changing the Initial Password.
    Any ideas how to handle this situation.
    regards,
    Rajesh K Sarin

    Hi Erwin,
    no. Also within BI4 you are not able to change your SAP password.

  • Management and maintanence of 2008r2 developments with 2012 client tools

    Hi eb
    I need to manage and maintane sql server 2008r2 developments like databases,ssis packages,ssrs reports,ssas native cubes
    and at the same time start developping in 2012 tools for 2012 servers with thier own version of client tools.
    Questions:
    Can 2008r2 and 2012 client tools co-exist on the same development machine?
    Are there any known issues with development of any of the sql server 2008r2 components after instalation of the 2012 client components?
    I guess it is not possible to uninstall the 2008r2 client tools alltogther because managing 2008r2 developments from within 2012 client tools would automatically upgrade them to 2012 version (as was the case with the 2005-2008 versions before)?
    Last and not list do 2012 client tools require windows 7 OS?
    TIA for your attention

  • Unable to install Client Tools for Sybase ASE 15.7 on Windows Server 2012 64-Bit

    Hello Folks,
    I just downloaded the client tools package from https://support.sap.com/swdc --> Installation and Upgrades --> A-Z list --> SAP ADAPTIVE SERVER ENTERPRISE --> SYBASE ASE 15.7 --> Installation --> Microsoft Windows --> 51044415.zip
    I'm trying to install the client tools for a newly provisioned Windows 2012 64-Bit machine. After unzipping the folder and running autorun, the installation does not proceed. When I go to pcclient64 and run either setup.exe or setupConsole.exe, I get the error "This Application has Unexpectedly Quit, Invocation of this Java Application has caused an InvocationTargetException. This application will now exit. (LAX)". I stumbled across various posts on the forum, and it appears that the installer is not certified for Windows Server 2012. I tried using the compatibility mode for Windows 7, and it proceeds further and launches the SAP GUI; however, it closes afterwards.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    51044415 is a PC-Client 15.7 refresh.
    You are using a version that was not certified with Windows 2012. Get the most current version PC-Client 15.7 SP130 or SDK 15.7 SP130 or SP132.
    If your looking for PC-Client5.7 SP130 look for EBF23439
    We didn't get certified with Windows 2012 until SDK 15.7 ESD#6 even with that I reported a few minor issues.
    You need the following on the machine before the installation.
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64)
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) (or dsedit and ocscfg will not work)
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x64) (or dsedit and ocscfg will not work)

  • Client tools not  authenticating via Windows AD after upgrade to SP4

    We recently upgraded our test environment to SP4 to correct a problem we were having with Windows AD authentication from InfoView.  The upgrade to SP4 and JDK 1.5 solved our InfoView problem, but our client tools (Designer, Desk, Crystal Reports) can no longer login to our test environment using Windows AD authentication.
    The error message we get when trying to connect to the SP4 instance using Designer or Deski  is as follows:
    [repo_proxy 13] SessionFacade::openSessionLogon with user info has failed(Internal error.(hr=#0x80042a01)
    Enterprise authentication continues to work as normal.  My first thought was that my client tools are at the SP2 level and they are trying to connect to an SP4 instance.  Therefore, I need to upgrade the client tools to the SP4 level as well in order to get Windows AD authentication to work.  Is this correct, and if so what is the proper way to upgrade the client tools to SP4? 
    On the SAP download site you can download the SP4 Full install, but when you run it says to uninstall the existing version first which I haven't tried yet.  Does the SP4 full install give the option to do a client install versus a server install like previous SP2 install?

    While we always recommend matching versions I have rarely seen a problem with client tools and AD using different versions. I think you may have a different issue.
    If your clients were installed from a deski/designer ONLY install then you can use a client version of SP4 that is much smaller. There should also be a server version that can be installed on top of deski/designer+ client tools (this should not require an uninstall). Finally there is an integrated build which includes the full XIR2 product with SP4 built in(it sounds like you downloaded this).
    If SP4 does not resolve I'd suggest opening a message with support and packet scanning the client with netmon or wireshark.
    What's the error you get with crystal using AD? There was a known issue on SP3 client patch that made all clients fail with AD/LDAP.

    Tim
