SAP BOFC 7.5: Incorrect identity and wrong DCOM configuration



The following problem occured after the server installation of SAP BO Financial Consolidation 7.5:

When I try to migrate an existing database I receive this error:

Migration failed on data source ...

The server process could not be started because the configured identity is incorrect. Check the username and password.

When I try to start a data source I receive this error:

Failed to start data source...

Failed to start server instances on machine...

Could not start the server because your configuration is incorrect. Please check your DCOM configuration.

I worked with the confirgarion of the BOFC 7.0 and with the SQL Server 2005. The services for the SQL Server are started and I can build up a connection to the SQL server.

I checked the installation guide and the administration guide already.

Because of that I changed the DbConnectionString from Provider=SQLOLEDB to Provider=SQLNCLI.1

Further on I checked the LocalPolicies.

Then I checked the properties of the service CtBroker: There are other tabs as in the admin guide mentioned. There is no security tab as a example.

I also noticed that the service CtServer is not listed in the overview of the services.

Because I'm not familiar with the SQL Server, BOFC or securtiy settings I don't know what I should do next? Could you help me?

Thanks. Fabian.
