I am getting following Error

Warning 2005:There are no BI systems defined in the order to use the Bi Integration Wizard,You must first define atleast one BI system based on BI XMLA,BI ODBC,BI JDBC or BI SAP Query Connector.

But i am already publishing some BW queries in Portal using WAD...BI system is connected to porta

Same problem faced previously, and the solution given was

Check whether one of the systems in the portal has the flag BI directory provider. If not, create a new one and it will work.Also make sure that you maintain the user mapping for that system.
