SM Diagnostics: set up of the BI content


In the frame of Root Cause Analysis Installation, BI content needs to be set up (section 6.2.2).

This can be done by creating a logical system for BI in the Solution Manager System or by using an external BI system?

Any pratical experience for the latter option?

Should client 001 from Solution Manager System be copied to a new client on this external BI system?

Thanks and regards,

    Hi Cedric,

    Diagnostics support 3 cases:

    - Productive & BI on same client

    - Productive & BI on different client

    - Solman & BI on different system.

    I would personnally not recommended a BI on a different system. this would double your needs in host and maintenance operations.

    I would definitivly not recommend it if you want to use a productive BI, that you will like to monitor later....

    BI Client copy may be done by following IMG recommandations. This is like any Abap client copy. This is the solution, I would recommend.

    If this is just for test, 1st option is enough.

      Hi François,

      Thanks for your answer.

      In fact, we have already a running BI landscape, so the additional setup/monitoring effort will not be very high.

      In the case we choose for the option "Solman & BI on different system" I would proceed like this:

      - Copy Solution Manager client 001 to a newly created client on the BI system.

      - Perform IMG activities (section 6.2.2 from "Root Cause Analysis Installation and Upgrade Guide") on this newly created client.

      This option not really being documented in SAP "Root Cause Analysis Installation and Upgrade Guide", is this the correct way to proceed?

      The prerequisites for Managing System (BW SP15 BI_CONT 703 SP07) from Note 1061383 have to be applied to the BI system then?

      I only found one place where the link could be made to the external BI system: Diagnostics Setup -> Diagnostics System -> Setup Wizard -> section "ABAP connection"

      Is this the only place where the connection has to be defined?

      Thank you for your help and best regards,
