IDT - Multi Source Data Foundation Error

Hello Experts,

We have BI 4.1 SP01 on windows 2008 R2 server with Tomcat on the same server.

When I try to build a single source universe using Information Design Tool, then I'm able to do it.

When I bring in two secured connections into my Project and while building data foundation layer when I select multi source enabled, then I can chose the two connections and it opens up the tab for the Data Foundation layer...But when I try to bring tables from any of the two connections then I'm getting error message "Conversion from UTF8 to charset failed : Encoding not loaded". I have attached a snapshot the error message.

I'm not able to find much help on google...any idea how can I fix this issue?

Thanks for the help in advance.

Hi Lzak,

Give a try by making few changes to the PATH environment variable.

  1. Add "C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win64_x64" to the PATH environment variables on the SAP Business Objects Enterprise server.
  2. Restart the SIA

NOTE: Modify the path in case the SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise is installed in different folder.
