Installation of SAP Data Services Designer – A Great Challenge
in this blog I would the errors with the relative solution that occurred during the installation of SAP Data Services Designer 4.2 on my workstation.
1) This was the first error message after the first logon to SAP Data Services Designer:
That I solved, specifying in etc/hosts file the name of CMS server.
Check that if you can communicate with CMS server using telnet
2) Error message:
To solve this error it was necessary, to:
– install Oracle Client version 64 bit, the same of SAP Data Services Designer ( Very important )
– insert the path of BIN folder of the Oracle Client installation in the env. variable PATH
3) Error Message:
To solve this error, it was necessary instead to :
– copy the file “tnsnames.ora” from SAP Data Services server and move on these folder: /admin/network of oracle client installation
To solve this one, it was necessary to uninstall my current release of SAP Data Services Designer , 4.2 SP4, to install the version valid for the data services repository : 4.2 SP1.
It was very difficult to complete the installation of this BO client tool and I hope that in the future won’t be necessary to install an client to use SAP BO Data Services.
