End to end configuration of BI platform 4.0 Integration with Information Steward 4.2


BI Platform 4.0 is installed in one server

IPS/DS/IS is installed in different server

IPS Version 4.1 SP2

DS/IS Version 4.2 SP2

Installing IS remote server on BI 4.0 Platform server

  1. Copy MMRemoteJobserver folder from Utilities
    directory from Information Steward Install package to BI Platform server. Note:
    not from IS install location. Above folder exists in IS software install
  2. Unzip to C:\Program Files
    (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects
  3. Open Command Prompt. Enter the following command:
    cd C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\InformationSteward\MM\bin
  4. Run the following command: wrapper.exe –i C:\Program
    Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\InformationSteward\MM\config\wrapper.conf


Note: As per SAP guide, we are supposed to run, Installremoteservice.bat,
but since it is bug in 4.2 SP2, we have to use wrpper.exe to install the remote
service. This bug is expected to fix in next SP or patch.

When promoted, provide the following


  1. BI Platform Information (CMS name,
    Authentication, username, password
  2. Remote server (IS server) – (CMS Name, Authentication,
    username, password)
  3. Remote Job server listening port (Make sure the
    port number is not being used, default port number is 5050)
  4. Enter the JDBC path – if your repository DB is
    oracle – D:\oracle\product\11.2.0\client_1\jdbc\lib\OJDBC6.jar

5. Will see remote service is installed.

6. After the successful installation of the remote service,
open command prompt. C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\InformationSteward\MM\config\
and Run admin.bat to check if the information is configured correctly.


8.  Make sure the Service status is running. If not
     click on Start button to start the service.

9. Login to CMC of IS server

10. Open InformationSteward. Click on Manage – New –
     Integrator source

11. Enter the below information

  1. Select Integrator type : SAP Business Objects
