Information Steward 4.09 installation scenario


Hi experts,

I am given 3 servers to deploy the following products:


SAP Data Services 4.0

SAP Information Steward 4.0

My main objective is to distribute the work load evenly into 3 servers. FYI, the BIP server will be handling thousands of concurrent users when it goes live.

These are the summary of the deployment into 3 servers so far.

Server 1 (Repository Server)

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2

- SAP BO BIP CMS Repository and Audit database (BOE)

- SAP Data Services Repository

Server 2 (BIP/CMS)

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2

SAP BO BIP 4.0 (BOE) 4.0

SAP BO Data Services 4.0

- DS EIM APS services

- DS Management Console

Server 3 (Data Services)

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2

SAP BO Data Services 4.0

- DS Job Server

- DS Access Server

My initial plan was to have Information Steward installed on Server 3 but it's not possible based on the installation guide page 14: u201CThe Information Steward web application must be installed on the same web application server as that of the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform.u201D

I am now planning to have it install on Server 2 but the I can't proceed as well, since I've configured the DS Job server and DS Access Server in a separate server.

So what should I do now?

Any comment on how I've deployed the BIP and Data Services?

Where and how should I install Information Steward with minimal impact on the Server 2?
