AD SSO with entry point for SAP users....

A client would like to use Active Directory (AD) Single Sign On rather than SAP for authentication purposes. There are two potential scenarios we would need to support:

Scenario 1, access to SAP BW (General Ledger, Profit Centre Accounting) and relational systems. There would be no security restrictions at the database level (OLAP and relational). The majority of users would access data from this scenario.

Scenario 2, access to HR SAP BW OLAP cube. SAP Security roles would be enforced.

Scenario 1 user and a scenario 2 user are not mutually exclusive. Therefore an HR user could have the rights to query a relational system or a non HR SAP system. Second, not all users in Scenario 1 will have an SAP account, but they will need to access non HR SAP data. Valero does not want to create new SAP accounts for these people.

I see two possible solutions:

1. Create two infoview entry points (eg different ports). One for AD SSO, the other for a SAP challenge and response. We used to have two infoviews in XIR2 when we deployed the SAP integration kit. How would I do this in 3.1?

2. Use Server Side Trust and SNC.

Can anyone offer any opinions of ideas?

    The passwords don't match between SAP r3 and SAP BW. This means that server side trust and SNC is the only option.
