Offline distribution wizard with "Schedule" mode

Hello experts,

We are currently working with the "Offline distribution wizard" tool. We have successfully generated several reports using the "Distribute Now" mode. Unfortunatly, we have failed to generate those reports with the "Schedule" mode.

Our platform architecture :

BPC 7.5 for NW SP08

- .NET on Windows server 2008 R2 english

- BW 7.0 EhP1 SPS10 on Itanium HP-UX 11i v3, Oracle

- client, IE8 and Excel 2007 on Windows XP SP3

Q1 : Has anyone found the documentation on how to distribute offline reports with the "schedule" mode?

Q2 : In the screen "Manage offline schedule", there is a "System password". Does anyone know what accounts it refers to?

Q3 : We wish to schedule the reports with our enterprise sheduling tool (Autosys). Does anyone know if there are any process chains/data packages generated that we can hook to?

Thank you and best regards,

    As far as i know there is no separate document for offline distribution wizard . Wizard is self explanatory .

    Q2) System password is your laptop/desktop password . Logged on windows user and BPC user should be same ,in that case schedule works .

    have a look at this note 1619106

      Thank you Pkrishnas for your answer.

      My problem was caused by the fact that I was using a PC attached to a different domain (for testing purposes) and the user account used to open the Windows session was not known to BPC. I was logging into BPC using the "log in with a different user account" option and that is not supported by the "offline distribution" in schedule mode.

      Thank you and best regards.
