Installation issue in BOBJ XI 4.0 while specifing existing DATABASE for CMS

Hi SDN users,

we are in the process of installating SAP BOBJ XI 4.0 on windows 2003 and SQL 2008. We have created new datasource ( CMS and Audit database) and performed the necessary settings in system DSN in ODBC Data Source Administration.

Test datasource connection was successful.

During the installation, we have used the option use existing database ( microsoft SQL server using ODBC). the database which we have created are not populating to specify in the screen. we are not able to proceed.

Could anyone let us know why the database are not apearing.

Thanks & Regards,

    Not via a forum post.

    You may wish to open a support case with SAP.

    Note that the CMS database must be on the 64-bit, and not 32-bit, side with BI 4.x
