Client Tool not logging onto BI4.1

Hello Experts,

I have recently installed BI4.1 SP1 on Win 2008 R2 server and implemented Windows AD authentication along with Single Sign On.

I'm able to logon to the BI LaunchPad and CMC using Win AD authentication/SSO from the server as well as client machine.

I'm able to logon to the server through the client tool using Win AD authentication/SSO when I'm on the Server.

But when I try to login to the Client Tool on the Client Machine, I'm not able to login using Win AD authentication.

I'm not able to understand why. I follow the Win AD and SSO steps from the Admin guide. What else do I need to configure to connect to the servers using the client tools?

Thanks in advance.

    1. Edit the file: install_dir\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86\InformationDesignTool.ini.

    2. Add the following lines to the end of the file:
      -Djava.security.auth.login.config=path-to-bsclogin/bscLogin.conf
      -Djava.security.krb5.conf=path-to-kerberos/krb5.ini

    3. Copy the two files bscLogin.conf and krb5.ini from the server or the other Working Client Machine.

    4. Now try login to IDT with AD Authentication.

    This post should be closed. What this user wants is SSO with IDT and as mentioned above by myself and supported by Arvind this is not possible currently as of SAP BI 4.1 SP1.

    Mr Izak, could you please mark the replies as correct answer so this post can be closed?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Which client tools do you have problem with?

    Some are JAVA: IDT, RCT, more

    Some are Web Services: Widgets, QAAWS, Live Office, more

    Some are Windows: Designer, more

    If they all fail they I agree with Arun, it's likely a firewall issue.

    If some do work, then let's take it from there!

    Thanks,

    Pat
