BI Platform Support Tool Issue: Corba SSL configuration and BIPST 2.0

You mentioned this for SSL configuration in the past

To use SAP BI Platform Support Tool against a landscape running Corba SSL, you need to edit BISupportTool64.bat and add the below Java properties to the javaw.exe command. Locate the line that starts with start javaw.exe then append the following java properties after javaw.exe but before bitool64.jar

-Dbusinessobjects.orb.oci.protocol=ssl -DcertDir=<SSLFILEPATH> -DtrustedCert=cacert.der -DsslCert=servercert.der -DsslKey=server.key -Dpassphrase=passphrase.txt

**Where <SSLFILEPATH> is the path to where you store the SSL files on the host running the SAP BI Platform Support Tool

For more info, refer to:

However, nowadays BISupportTool64.bat is replaced with BISupportTool64.exe and this one cannot be changed anymore.

How can we add this SSL configuration?

    Hi Janek,

    We will look at fixing and documenting the corba setup (using the exe) in the next patch release. In the meantime, download the zip file from this mobile docs link and extract the batch file to the same directory where you find the BISupportTool64.exe.

    Then edit the batch file, add your corba SSL properties to the following line as per the previous instructions:

    start BISupportTool.exe -Dtracelog.configfile="%cd%\BIST_trace.ini" -Xms256m -Xmx4g -jar "%cd%/bitool64.jar"

    Finally, launch the BIPST using the BISupportTool64.bat instead of using the BISupportTool64.exe

    Let me know if you face any issue.
