SAP BI 4.2 SP5 : Web Intelligence is hidden !

Dear all,

I have installed SAP BI 4.2 SP5 on RHEL7.3, a new installation

I have not imported yet any content. I have not yet setup any security.

Logged on as Administrator, I notice that "Web Intelligence" does not appear in the Applications :

Same issue in BI Launchpad, "Web Intelligence" does not appear in the list of Applications :

The folder "Web Intelligence Samples" seems to be empty.

What could be the issue ?

Many thanks

Hans

  • Hans - how about applying "patch 100" to BI4.2 SP05, just released this week?

  • Hi Tammy,

    can you give us some Information about the "patch 100" and the "hotfix 2" that are available?

    I can not find anything about it/them? And we are short for Installation of 4.2 SP5.... would be great to know what These are for

    Hi Hans,

    What about Web Intelligence processing servers?

    Do you see those in the servers list?

    Regards,

    Was webi selected during install ?
    Does your license include webi ?
    Are you sure this is not Crystal Server ?

    What do install logs say about webi ?

    Problem solved, I modified the installation :

    I installed the BI Platform on 2 machines, as a distributed deployment. I ran a Custom Installation (not : Full Installation)

    Initial installation :

    Box A : Management Tier : installation of Web Tier + CMS - IFRS - OFRS - Event Server

    Box B : Processing Tier : installation of all Processing Servers, for example the Web Intelligence Processing Tier

    --> result : "Web Intelligence" does not appear in the list of applications in the CMC

    Solution :

    Box A : Management Tier : Web Tier + CMS - IFRS - OFRS - Event Server + Web Intelligence Processing Server

    Box B : Processing Tier : all Processing Servers

    --> result : Web Intelligence appears in the list of applications in the CMC
