Hi All Experts,

I am pretty much new to SAP..I am working on SAP BW . I had problem in how to enable SAP BW Web functionality. Can anyone give more details regarding the follwing step:

Perform the following check (in order!) to

configure the correct fully qualified host

name. Retest after each change with the

above function module.

Note: BW will have to be stopped &

restarted after applying any changes

identified below:

1. Check your DNS entry

2. Check your hosts file

(e.g. /etc/hosts file)

3. Consult SAP note 434918 for more

options (and potentially use the parameter


4. If you plan to use addition security

hardware/software options like reverse

proxies please consult SAP note 561885

how to make changes for host file....
