OLAP Connection failed - SAP BW to SAP BO 4.1

Hi everyone,

i want to connect our SAP BW system via BICS to SAP BO. Unfortunately it doesn t work and i don t know how to fix this.

I created and tested in IDT an OLAP Connection - everything is fine,everything works. Then i published it to the BO server and when i test it there i get the following message:

"Failed to get connections for connection [server.adress] using session locale [English]. Connect to SAP gateway failed Connection parameters: TYPE=A DEST=custom_Session-7:server.adress:user:EN:SAPBW7.0:CREDENTIALS ASHOST=server.adress SYSNR=00 PCS=1 LOCATION CPIC (TCP/IP) on local host with Unicode ERROR partner 'server.adress:3300' not reached TIME Tue Jan 13 RELEASE 720 COMPONENT NI (Network interface) Version 40 RC - 10 MODULE nixxi.cpp LINE 3286 Detail NipConnect2: server.adress:3300 SYSTEM CALL connect ERRNO 10060 ERRNO TEXT WSAETIMEDOUT: Connection timed out COUNTER 8.

Can anyone help here and give me a hint. I don t know where to start looking.

Thanks alot in advance for your help

    Christopher - did you create an OLAP connection in the CMC?  Please see this tutorial Central Management Console 4.0: Create OLAP Connections to BW

    • Hi Victor,

      to your points:

      • Can you ping the BW server from the BO server?

           what do you mean with "ping". i don t know how to do this in BO and i couldn t find this via google

      • In case of windows on the BO Server: Did you install SAP GUI and can you access BW?

           Yes SAP GUI is installed and i can access BW. I created there Multiproviders and queries which      i wanted to connect to bo. So from this side      everything is fine.

      • Are you trying with an application server or message server? (For a test try with app server and/or IP Address)

           i m trying with app server (with its ip Address)

      Thank for your help
