To install SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 or SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1

  1. Extract the files that you downloaded from the BMC EPD page.
    1. On a Microsoft Windows operating system, copy all the files (.exe and .rar) under a single directory. For example, SAP_BO_LINUX.

    2. Double click or run the .exe file.
      All the SAP BusinessObjects installation related files and the contents of all the .rar files are extracted in a single directory with the name of the directory in digits format. For example, 51046779.

    3. Transfer this directory to a Linux system.

      Note

       Do not copy the .exe or .rar files again to the Linux system.

    4. Navigate to the \<directoryOnTheLinuxSystem>\ DATA_UNITS \ BusinessObjectsServer_lnx\ directory. For example, \51046779\ DATA_UNITS \ BusinessObjectsServer_lnx\

  2. Start the installation as follows:
    • (UNIX or Linux) Run ./setup.sh.
    • (Windows) Double-click setup.exe.

      If you are copying the installation files from a Microsoft Windows computer to a UNIX computer, the execute permission on the setup.sh file might change.

      • chmod 755 `find ./ -type d --name “*”`
      • chmod 755 `find ./ -type f --name “*”`
