Installing the BI Content on the Sneak Preview

Hello All,

I have installed the ABAP Sneak preview and have activated the BW on client 001. Now i am trying to install the content for 7.0, but am facing some problems there.

When i try to install the content using tcode SAINT, and try and load packages, the packages are searched for in the directory
<comp name>\sapmnt\eps\in and this folder is not available on my machine.

I am not sure how to configure this on my computer, so that the SAP system recognises the correct folder.

Can anyone help with a detailed step by step ?

Thanks & Best Regards,

Dabre

      Hi Subhash,

      Thanks for the reply ...

      The problem is solved now... In the Tcode SAINT, the sap system was not able to find the path


      <System Name>\sapmnt\trans\EPS\in

      since this folder was not shared, and windows XP was not allowing me to share this folder.

      Solved this by going to Control Panel --> Folder Options --> View --> Uncheck the setting 'Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended)'

      Then right clicked the folder C:\sapmnt on my drive where i had downloaded and extracted the Content CAR files, and then shared this folder, so that it was available now on the path


      <System Name>\sapmnt\trans\EPS\in

      The tcode SAINT recognised the package now and i shall install this and check.

      Best Regards,

      Dabre
