Help me with Custom Installing the SAP BusinessObjects


I have been trying to make a cluster environment using 5 systems.

What I want:

System 2: CentralManagementServer, Event Server, AdaptiveJobServer

System 3: AdaptiveProcessingServer, CentralManagementServer, CrystalReports-Servers

System 4: AdaptiveJobServer, CrystalReports-servers

What I am getting:

System 2: CentralManagementServer, Event Server, AdaptiveJobServer, AdaptiveProcessingServer, WebApplicationServer
System 3: AdaptiveProcessingServer, CentralManagementServer, CrystalReports-Servers, WebApplicationContainerServer
System 4: AdaptiveJobServer, CrystalReports-servers, Web Application Container Server, AdaptiveProcessingServer

My issue is that on system 2,3,4 while installing the product using custom method, I am getting unwanted servers.

How to avoid WACServer and APServer.

Help would be appreciated.

    I am a consultant who has installed BOBJ for well over 100 clients in the last 10 years. We always install everything (except, for example, the BW integration features when the client doesn't have other SAP software) on every server, no matter what its purpose. We then stop and disable any server processes that we want to run on each server, turning off the "auto-start" property. You can even delete them if you'd like so that they don't cause confusion. This way, if we need to "turn on" a server process for any reason, we don't have to do an update install to get it on the server before we can turn it on.
