Compatibility of SOO with LINUX BO 4.2 with ECC 6.0

Hi Gurus!

I need to validate and verify the compatibility of the versions of our systems are correct before configuring SSO with kbr5.0. My current system is:

1.- System to configure: BO4.2 on LINUX

2.- UME: ECC6.0 EHP7 on AIX7.2

According guide {1}, on page 211 point (Single Sing-on support) it says: "BI platform services need to run on a Windows server." but I have Linux!

I checked notes, but does not indicate about this.

Did anyone have this scenario? Can anyone confirm before configuring it?

{1} Business Intelligence Platform Administrator Guide - SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform Document Version: 4.2 – 2015-11-12

Thank you in advance...

    If you want AD SSO then the BI AD plugin is only available when BI is installed on a windows server (more specifically the CMS) in order to integrate with the windows OS API's. We still can offer SSO depending on what you are trying to SSO to. For instance you mentioned ECC you can setup SSO between BI and EXX for reporting and that is not OS dependent. We also offer trusted authentication for logon to launchpad via SSO which can work with various schemes. LEt us know more details abiout how you are trying to setup SSO
