WWI Server Installation – Local vs Centralized


Dear SAP Gurus,

I have a more complex question to ask but am hoping the response to this seemly simple question will alleviate me from discussing all of the complexities Iu2019m encountering.

My question is we had a set of people that setup a centralized WWI Server to support a SAP ECC environment. They also loaded it locally on our users PCu2019s. Is this setup on the local PC necessary? Should a centralized WWI server negate the need to have WWI setup on each personu2019s local PC? Iu2019m thinking that no installations should occur on a user PC as the centralized WWI server should be handling all of the report generation requests initiated from CG02. It should be one or the other and not both. Please advise!

Thanks u2013 Richard.

PS: I have since de-installed and found out the report generation does not work if the WWI Server is removed from the local PC. I had to re-install the WWI Generation Server on the local PC to make it work again. I will now have to post the more complex question that I was really seeking an answer for.
