      Hi Abhinag,

      thanks for sharing this information with the community.

      Love it. Great to see that it is accesable.

      I would thought recommed users to stop the service and change the instance type to just 30.5 Gb memory. For the integration part it seems to be running fine, I'm not sure how the OPI will work.

      Hi,

      just wanted to try it out. However, among many informations, the user name in the Getting Started Guide are missing. Instead of the Information there is an "Error. Reference source not bound.

      Who could provide the correct Getting Started Guide?

      Thanks a lot!

      Michael

      Hello Abhinang,

      thanks for your fast answer. I just wanted to make the screenshots of the PDF-Document with the missing information, but now it is there. So the problem disappeared 😉

      Hi,

      Thanks. I am looking to try SAP Process Intelligence and got the instances up and running. I am unable to locate Administrator passwords to remotely logon using RDP or NWA. PDF documents refer to changing the SAP passwords but do not mention initial passwords to use. Can you please advise?

      Hi Shehryar Khan,

      Initial passwords for Administrator user or SYSTEM user would be the password which you would have provided as "Master Password" while creating an instance.

      Hi,

      Many thanks for the response. Yes, I have seen this statement in the FAQs and the relevant guides also but the activation process for the instance did not ask for a password. The activation worked in the background. Did I do something wrong?

      Hi,

      In actual, it should ask you for master password. Since the instance creation is on SAP Cloud Appliance library, you can post this question in SAP Cloud Appliance Library (CAL) .

      Hope this helps!

      Hi All,

      Is it possible to extend the licence as either free of paid for developers?

      I would like to use this as a personal dev box for prototyping.

      If paid, what are the estimated license cost(AWS cost excluded)?

      If anyone know answers to these, please share.

      Cheers,

      Vikas

      Hi Abhinag

      My email bounced. Maybe this mailbox is SAP internal.

      Do you have an external facing email id?

      Thanks in advance.

      Hi Abhinag,

      Could we also have a similar trial system for HANA Cloud Integration. Would be useful.

      Thanks.

      Hi,

      Are you trying to setup PI connection using Swing Clinet? If so, it is not supported in AWS. Please see Question 4 in FAQ page (FAQ -Intelligent Business Operations: SAP Process Orchestration 7.4 SPS 11 and SAP Operational Process Intelligence 1.0 SPS 09). You need to use Netweaver Developer Studio to access PI.

      Hope this helps!

      Hi,

      Two changes.

      1. Uncheck "Secure Connection (HTTPs)"

      2. Provide -1 instead of 50001 against ESR Https port

      Username would be "Administrator" and password would be the master password you provided while creating the instance.

      Hi Abhinag,

      NWDS is not allowing to enter "-1" as ESR Https Port parameter. Its throwing error 'Enter a port number within.....ange (between 80 and 65535)'. I have unchecked 'Secure Connection (Https)'.

      Please help. I am not able to connect PO sever from NWDS. http://bpmhost:50000 is also not opening (connection has timed out). Is the Server down?

      It took hours to figure out "Administrator" would be the Userid. 😐

      It would be helpful if we can update the FAQ and Getting Started documents.

      Regards,

      Nabendu.

      Hi Nayan,

      Ping to bpmhost from windows host is timed out. It means the linux instance isnot up and running. 

      Please start a discussion in http://scn.sap.com/community/cloud-appliance-library/content?filterID=contentstatus%5bpublished%5d~objecttype~objecttype%5bthread . This is monitored continuously and someone from SAP would contact you soon.
