            I agree with Denis, this tool is recommended for novice admin.  You need to have very strong understanding of the BI 4 Platform, Server Sizing, Server roles and their functions.

      This blog should have disclaimer before using.

      SJ - what is the purpose of increasing the history size? is this related to how many historical activities will be recorded?

      Hello all,

      I've created probably the most thorough documentation for the webiadmintool to-date.

      Please see WebiAdminTool - Business Intelligence (BusinessObjects) - SCN Wiki

      Comments are welcome

      I didn't see a spot to comment on the blog, so I figured I'd note it here... Your blog was VERY helpful - thank you! Especially appreciate the details on the Plugins Perspective and clarifying some of the views/uses.

      Many thanks Missy.

      Not easy to comment on the wiki, but it should be easier on this blog post: Looking inside the Web Intelligence Servers with Webi Admin Tool

      This blog post also handy for an overview!

      Thanks again
