SAP BW User and Enterprise User - Alias Usage

Hi,

I try to do add an alias assignment to a SAP BW User (7.3) with an enterprise user on SAP BI 4.1 SP2 and I cannot find the enterprise user. Should this be possible?

I am am able to add a LDAP user to a SAP User so tried logging in as the LDAP user. Then I tried connecting to a BICs connection which had the setting SSO.

I got the following error - the items below in bold i have replaced to not show the sever details used at my client:

com.businessobjects.sdk.core.server.CommunicationException$UnexpectedServerException: [[error.openSapBwBrowsingSessionFailed] 0] <<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><ConnectionString>

   <Properties>

      <Initial Catalog>CUBE</Initial Catalog>

      <Initial Cube>CUBE</Initial Cube>

      <TargetProvider>SAPNETWEAVER7X</TargetProvider>

      <NetworkLayer>SAPBW_BICS</NetworkLayer>

      <Authentication Mode>2</Authentication Mode>

   </Properties>

   <ExtendedProperties>

      <JCO_ASHOST>SERVER</JCO_ASHOST>

      <SapLoginMode>0</SapLoginMode>

      <JCO_R3NAME>SERVER ID</JCO_R3NAME>

      <JCO_CLIENT>CLIENT</JCO_CLIENT>

      <JCO_SYSNR>00</JCO_SYSNR>

      <JCO_LANG>EN</JCO_LANG>

   </ExtendedProperties>

</ConnectionString>>

I have not setup any further config between BI 4 and BW yet. i.e. SNC / STS but will plan to. Based on the fact i can run report successfully if I log in directly as a SAP User I would assume this should work?

Any ideas?

Cheers

If logging in as an LDAP user you need SNC/STS (BICS is STS). Also enterprise accounts cannot be added as aliases to other accounts, they can only be created new.
