SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform 4.0 in HA environment


Hi Experts,

I need to understand how high availability is achieved by installation of BOBJ 4.0 on Windows in a cluster.

I have installed a "Full" installation type on my windows server1, and chose to perform "Custom/Expand" in windows server2. I had provided the details of CMS installed in server1 when prompted. Now the installation is complete.

When I open the CMC from server2, in the system tab i need to type server1 details (I read in admin guide that by default, a cluster name reflects the specific name of the first CMS that you install, so i understand this).

Inside CMC, in Servers tab, I see all the servers of server1 and server2, but the Server2.CentralManagementServer is not and will not start and Server2.CrystalReportsCacheServer and Server2.DashboardDesignCacheServer is started with config errors.

Here I fail to understand how the application is highly available . In case my Server1 is shutdown for some reason, nobody will be able to login to CMC. My Server2.CentralManagementServer is not starting at all. Am I missing something? I did not do any config work yet on either of two servers

Please clear my doubts.
