First off, I am real new to this whole product, so please bear with me. I have searched the forums for assistance, but have hit kind of a wall on this one.
I have installed Crystal Server 2013 - I didn't use the bundled Tomcat, I went with the bare-bones Web Application Container Service. Maybe a mistake, but that remains to be seen.
All went well on the installation, and I actually have configured LDAP authentication now too. So, when I log into the CMC at
http://myserver:6405/BOE/CMC , I see an authentication drop-down with options Enterprise, LDAP Windows AD and SAP. Enterprise works, and LDAP works, so I'm happy about that.
Now, when I go to the BI Launchpad at http://myserver:6405/BOE/BI I get a login page, without a drop-down, so I can't choose LDAP, and it seems to be using Enterprise by default.
By searching these forums (and other places), I am instructed to create a file "BIlaunchpad.properties" in the
<INSTALL_DIR>/<ENTERPRISE_DIR>./warfiles/webapps/BOE/WEB-INF/config/custom directory. I've done so, and have the following text in there:
Now, according to the README I find in this directory, I am to:
Add custom configuration files to the <BOE_Install_Dir>\<Enterprise_DIR>\warfiles\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config\custom folder, and then run wdeploy.
This is where I'm having my trouble....I have NO idea how to run wdeploy...as a matter of fact, when I search my system for wdeploy, I don't even find it! Is this a result of my not using the bundled Tomcat installation - the WACS that SAP provides does not somehow support wdeploy, and therefore I won't be able to make this customization, nor even use LDAP for authentication?
Note that I have no real qualms about redoing this, and using the Tomcat if I have to, I'm just wondering if it's because Tomcat isn't there that I'm not able to customize this.
I have put this properties file in place and reboot both the application first, and then the entire Windows server, but to no avail :-(
Anyway, there you have it - am I missing something real basic here? Is what I'm trying to do even possible?
As always, any help very much appreciated..
