Install Data Services(DS) 4.0 on IPS4.0 SP2, DS icon not visible on CMC


Here is the issue we are facing:

1. Installed IPS 4.0 SP2 on Server #1. Installed tomcat as well on the same server.

2. Login to CMC to verify. It looks good.

3. Installed DS 4.0 SP1 on Server #2.

4. Use server#3 with MS SQL Server 2008 DB for creating CMC and DS Repos.

5. Login to DS Designer successfully.

6. Login to CMC.

7. You should see a Data Services icon in the CMC. BUT the Data Services (DS) icons not available

When you install IPS4.0 and DS4.0 on the same server, it works fine. We have done this.

I have been told that this is a IPS4.0/DS4.0 bug and that SAP is working on it. I haven't seen a solution anywhere for this yet. Has anyone faced this issue and what did was done to resolve this?

Any help is appreciated.

    Resolved it with SAP's help.

    We had to run DS 4.0 installer on the IPS (so that CMS is local) server

    and install the DS EIM APS + Management Console on the IPS box.

    I have attached the screen shot of the features to install.
