DB Connect in BW(IBM System i) for an external Oracle(non-SAP)


Hi All,

Our BW (SAP EHP 1 for SAP NetWeaver 7.0) system is running on IBM System i. We have two requirements for importing data from non-SAP database. One is MSSQL and the other is Oracle. In order to do this, we had to install a Windows Dialog instance so that the MSSQL Mgmt Studio could be installed for the DBConnect configuration (for the MSSQL connection) as well as dropping the dbssslib.dll in the kernel .

I am ready to configure the Oracle connection now. Can I just utilize the existing Windows Dialog instance and install the Oracle client software on it and drop the dbsoraslib in the kernel as well?
