Prerequisite check failed while installing SAP data service

I have installed boe 4.1sp2 on this server.

But while installing BODS 4.1sp2 , the prerequisite checks failed . It said " it can't find boe or ips" .

But I indeed installed boe .

This is urgent. Please help .

Questions :

1,How can bods detect boe ?

2,If I don't install HostAgent , will it affect the integration of BOE and BODS ?

    Before I ignore this problem, but I can't find "data service" in CMC .

    And I'm installing BOE and BODS on redhat 6.4.
