Connection Error in CR using a universe to SAP BI


Hello everyone,

I just tried to create a report in Crystal Reports 2008 SP1 using a universe to connect to a SAP BI System. As described in this thread (Error on Installation of CrystalReports 2008) I had to install CR in a virtual machine.

As the connection was no problem in the past through this virtual network based on a shared connection I am now struggling with connecting to a universe based on a SAP BI InfoCube. When I want to create this universe as a connection in CR it is possible to choose it and to arrange the dimensions and measures. Klicking "Next" is then showing an error: "Error on Logon".

There were no troubles while creating the universe and exporting it to the BOBJ Enterprise server. It is also no problem to use this universe with BOBJ Web Intelligence. I also reinstalled CR, the BOBJ Integration Kit for SAP and the BOBJ Client Tools.

Hopefully there is somebody out there with an advice to solve my problem 😊
