We need to build a BI Platform landscape which will include Dev, VAL and PRD environments. Each environment will have number of BO machines. Each machine will have BI Platform 4.x with bundled Tomcat installed on it. We are building our landscape of VM.
My question is will it be possible to Build these BO machines using Image copy i.e. Create an Image of BO machine and create copy of image everytime we replicate a BO machine for above mentioned environments.
I understand, it may not be simple process as during default installation BO will create SIA, Tomcat, registry entries, configuration files on file system, and entries in CMS DB. Replicating the same from same image may mean that these things will be repeated every time and may need to be manually changed on number of locations.
Have any one done such installation ?
Is there a list available for changes need to be made to avoid conflict of replicating names?
last but not list will such environment will be supported?
