BI BOP V4.1 Minimum configuration/servers/common services configuration


Hi All,

Apologies if this has been asked before. I have done some searching for the above topic but haven't run into a something or a document that outlines what exactly is required for our use in BOP V4.1.

Frankly, we as a company under utilize BI BOP. However, there are no plans to expand its usage as far as I can tell. We migrated from Crystal Enerprise to BO BIP v4.1 and were surprise how much more resources (server) are required from the platform. However, it has so many bells and whistles that I wish to consolidate it to just features that we need.

Basically I am looking for documentation that will let me know what common services/servers are required to run in order to use BOP like we did in BOE. We use the Open Document to navigate users to reports for external apps, and we use email/pdfs for scheduled reports. All the reports are based in Crystal Reports. Now a few users might use the BOE/BI launch pad as well but I dont think it is used by many anymore. Most use the opendocument or the scheduled reports or just the CMC for running reports.

Of course, not knowing everything about BI BOP, I let it configure the setup and we have everything running BUT it is problematic. Memory becomes an issue on the 8GRAM 1 CPU server. Can anyone please point me in the right direction where I can find the documentation?

We currently are using BI BOP V4.1 SP6 p2 Enterprise edtion....
