Configuring Thick Clients + BO Mobile on SSL

I have configured SSL successfully on Tomcat and SIA.

And i can login properly through CMC and BI Launchpad as well.

Next step was to configure Thick clients to use SSL.

I executed the sslconfig.exe on the server at the following command prompt:

C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win64_x64

using the following command:

sslconfig.exe -dir C:\SSL -mycert servercert.der -rootcert cacert.der -mykey server.key -passphrase passphrase.txt -protocol ssl

and it executed successfully and shows the proper files associated with each category:

even after this the thick clients like webi rich client and dashboard design are not able to logon to the server from client machines.

I copied the same C:\SSL folder from the server to my client machine and ran this command locally but it was not successful:


1. What should i do to make the thick clients logon to the server.

2. For IDT i edited the informationdesigntool.ini file and it worked fine but what to do for webi and dashboard design.

3. Will the SSL files from server work on the client machine or int his case i need to generate new ones. If i have to generate new ones then have all of them to be generated for the client machine or only some of them and how.

4. What should i do to be able to logon from iPad using https://<server>:8443 (which i currently cannot) after doing the SSL configuration and given that i am able to logon to cmc and launchpad using https.
