Setup Remotecube requirements


I had a request to set up a remotecube on BW (connecting to a non-SAP R/3 external system using Teradata). All I have is very general on-line documentation as the following:

To report using a RemoteCube you have to carry out the following steps:

1.In BW, create a source system for the external system that you want to use.

2.Define the required InfoObjects.

3.Load the master data:

•Create a master data InfoSource for each characteristic

•Load texts and attributes

4.Define the RemoteCube

5.Define the queries based on the RemoteCube

In Step #1, external system is a non-SAP R/3 I'm not sure what requirements for RFC connection to define a source system?

I appreciate if anyone can share some info (better than the on-line doc) if you already successfully setup remotecube.

      I have done exactly what you have described, "with a twist". Please let me know how I can help. Teradata offers an outstanding connectivity tool/solution designed exactly for this purpose. Teradata's solution works seamlessly with 3.1 and 3.5. However, if you are using a BW 3.5 system, I recommend you use UD Connect. You can contact Todd Hayes directly at Teradata for more info. or feel free to contact me.
