SAP BO Explorer 4.1 - Cluster Questions

Dear all,

In our environment we have a BO Cluster which runs on two dedicated servers (Windows 2012 R2, 64G RAM) with the following components:

  • SAP BO BI 4.1 SP06 FP02
  • SAP BO Explorer 4.1 SP06 FP02
  • Tomcat 7

I would like to ask the following regarding Explorer:

1.) Should we still disable IPv6 on both servers as per SAP Note '2078091 - Explorer Master Server stops unexpectedly'? The Note was last updated in 28.05.2015.

2.) Should we move the Explorer Index Files Directory (%DefaultDataDir%/Polestar/index) from each node to the common storage alike Filestore for SAP BO BI 4.1? Is there any recommended practice about the index file directory when we have a clustered environment?

Thanks for any answers,

ilias

    Hi,

    1.) Should we still disable IPv6 on both servers as per SAP Note '2078091 - Explorer Master Server stops unexpectedly'? The Note was last updated in 28.05.2015.


    If you are not getting any error message then this is not required.This note is valid upto for BI 4.1 SP03. Your env is already on SP06.If you are getting same error then you can test with these steps.


    2.) Should we move the Explorer Index Files Directory (%DefaultDataDir%/Polestar/index) from each node to the common storage alike Filestore for SAP BO BI 4.1? Is there any recommended practice about the index file directory when we have a clustered environment?


    Check this SAP Note.

    1469161 - Should Explorer directories be shared by multiple Explorer servers when they are installed on a clustered BusinessObjects Enterprise environment?
