Data Service/ SAP BW Shared directory setup issues


Hi All - We are facing issues with SAP Shared directory setup for BODI source datastores.

  • Our SAP BW server is on Unix box, BODI is on Windows 2003 server.

  • SAP BASIS team created a shared directory for BODI on SAP BW server(unix).

  • While executing the BODI job,we are getting the open file error.

  • My guess is, the windows service account is not able to read the .dat file created by ABAP program on the unix server.

  • We are planning to do a ftp from unix server to BODI windows server after job execution but I doubt this approach because the BODI will not wait for this manual process.

My question is what are all the different options available to get this done. Please help me with some steps.
