Recommended Install of Data Services

Hi Experts,

I have a few questions. We have some groups that have requested Data Quality be implemented along with another request for Data Services to be implemented. I've seen the requested for Data Services to be installed on the desktop, but from what I've read, it appears to be best to install this on the server side to allow for more of a central benefit to all.

My questions are:

1. Can Data Services (Server) install X.1 3.2 be installed on the same server as X.I 3.1 SP3 Enterprise?

2. Is the Data Services (CLIENT) Version dependent on if the Data Services (Server) install is completed? Basically can the u201CData Services Designeru201D be used without the Server install?

3. Do we require a new License key for this or can I use the Enterprise Server license key?

4. At this time we are not using this to move data in and out of SAP, just using this to read data that is coming from SAP.

From what I read, DATA Services comes with the SAP BusinessObjects Data Integrator or SAP BusinessObjects Data Quality Management solutions. Right now it's seems we dont have a need for the SAP Connection supplement, but definetly something we would implement in the near future. What would be the recommended architecture? A new Server with tomcat and cmc (seperate from our current BOBJ Enterprise servers)? or can DataServices be installed on the same?

Thank you,

The solution is in SAP Note 1690203.  You have to install APS Services and the Management Console from the Data Services installer on your primary server, then you can do a full Data Services install on your secondary server.
