BOE XI 3.1 Client Tools

During the BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1 instllation ->Install Type, I selected:

"New" and "Install MySQL Database server". Also check the check-box "Enable server upon installation"

Then continue with the installation. Completed succesffully.

This also means I have installed all the client-tools (Web Intelligent, Desktop Intelligent etc) on the server.

Now if the user need to the access to Webi and create and publish the query into CMS, how do they actually access to the WEBI?

Do we need to install the WEBI again on each of their machine?

The best practice depends on the use-case.

Normally most of the users will be happy with option 1 and for sure your admins would like to have less to do. But if you want that your users are able to create reports offline or report on local (ie residing on the user's workstation) excel sheets the WebI rich client is the tool of choice.

Keep in mind that the persons in your organization, who are supposed to create the universes, will probably need an installation of the client tools on their local workstations.
