Need help with installtion of BOXI


We have recently acquired Business Objects XI r2 as we are in the process of migrating from Business Objects 6.5.1

We currently use BO 6.5.1 on a small scale using Business Query via excel to access a remote Data Warehouse (DW). I beleive we will now use Live Office in the new XI world.

We have acquired licenses for the following components, and I really would like some assistance on how to install them and in which order

Business Objects Enterprise Professional

Business Objects Live Office

Business Objects Web Intelligence

I have a windows 2003 server in place to host the application, but where do I start ? Which component do I need to install first ?

How do I then configure the communication between the the server and DW which is located remotely ?

I have looked through some documentations and

Can someone please help !

Many thanks

    You just need to install Business Objects Enterprise (BOE) Pro, add the keys in the following orders:

    During the install, add the BOE Pro key.

    Once installation is done, add the Web Intelligence key and the Live Office key.

    Live Office consists of a server component and a client component. The server component is automatically installed, activated once you add a key. The client component has to be installed on every machine using Live Office.

    As for you question regarding the DW, I need more information. What do you plan on using for reporting. I presume you will develop universes, Webi reports. If that's the case, your universe will connect to the DW. This is quite simple to implement.
