Configuring after installation

In versions 8.9.02, 8.9.02.001, 8.9.02.002, and 8.9.02.003, User Role Group (URG) Mapper does not populate the BusinesObjects Business Intelligence (BI) server with the reports data and user accounts from the reports data warehouse, as done in 8.9.02.004, 8.9.02.005, and 8.9.01 and earlier versions. Therefore, you need to create user accounts manually in Central Management Console (CMC).

The following table provides information about the tasks that you must complete after running the Content Deployment utility for versions 8.9.02, 8.9.02.001, 8.9.02.002, and 8.9.02.003.
