BOE XI 3.1 SP3


We wanted to installed the new BOE XI 3.1 SP3 on our new Window 2008 Server.

The BOE will then be connected to our SAP BW 7.

If I recall correctly, we only need the following to be installed on the Window 2008 Server:

1) BOE XI 3.1 SP3

2) SAP Int Kits XI 3.1 SP3

3) SAPJCo (sapjco.jar needs to be copied to the shared library path of the application server. In the case of a default Tomcat deployment the path would be C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Tomcat55\shared\lib. The librfc32.dll and sapjcorfc.dll need to be copied to the Windows\system32 directory.)

Do we also need to install the SAP GUI on the BOE Server too?

Please confirm.

the Installation Guide clearly explains which files are needed and you do not need the complete SAP GUI.
