Hello Everyone,

SAP BODS (Data Services 4.2 SPXX) can be installed on both Windows and Linux OS.

This Blog will help you to understand what is the correct start and stop order for Data Services

components in case of Windows and Linux OS Environment.

Linux Environment:

Stop Sequence : Tomcat -> DS(Job Server) -> Server Intelligence Agent (SIA)

1. Login to Linux server, where SAP BODS/ Data Services Application is installed.

  • Login to server via Putty.

  • Provide Host Name/ IP and Port 22 and click open


2. Once logged to the server, switch to <SID>ADM user, if not already with help of below command.

  • $ su - <SID>ADM and give the password for this user.


3. Navigate to sap_bobj directory under data services installation path and run below command to stop Apache tomcat server

  • SAP/sap_bobj/tomcat/bin/ ./shutdown.sh


4. Navigate to data services installation path and run below commands to stop the job server

  • $ cd <LINK_DIR>/bin

  • $ . ./al_env.sh

  • $ ./svrcfg



5. Under Enter Option field : select o and click enter

6. New screen will appear with Job Server status as Not Running, now Enter option as q to Quit from this screen.

7. Again Navigate to sab_bobj directory and run below command to stop SIA (Server Intelligence Agent)

  • <BI install dir>/sap_bobj/  ./stopservers


Start Sequence : SIA -> DS(Job Server) -> Tomcat

1. Navigate to sab_bobj directory and run below command to stop SIA (Server Intelligence Agent)

  •  <BI install dir>/sap_bobj/ ./startservers


2.Navigate to data services installation path and run below commands to start the job server

  • $ cd <LINK_DIR>/bin

  • $ . ./al_env.sh$ ./svrcfg



3. Under Enter Option field : select s and click enter

4. New screen will appear with Job Server status as Running, now Enter option as q to Quit from this screen.

5. Navigate to sap_bobj directory under data services installation path and run below command to start Apache tomcat server

  • SAP/sap_bobj/tomcat/bin/ ./startup.sh


Note: Wait to make sure each service is up before starting the next

Windows Environment:

Stop Sequence : Tomcat -> DS (Job Server) -> Server Intelligence Agent (SIA)

1. Login to server where Data service/ BODS is installed

Central Configuration Manager - > Stop Apache Tomcat for BI 4


2. Start -> services -> Stop SAP Data Services



    Service Name May change as per your configuration

3. Central Configuration Manager -> Stop Server Intelligence Agent



Start Sequence : SIA -> DS(Job Server) -> Tomcat
1. Login to server where Data service/ BODS is installed.Central Configuration Manager -> Start Server Intelligence Agent (SIA)

2. Start -> services -> Start SAP Data Services

3. Central Configuration Manager -> Start Apache Tomcat for BI 4

Conclusion: start and stop sequence for Data Services components will not affect based on operating system, it is exactly same for both Windows and Linux Environment .

Take Away:

  • The SIA needs to be the first to start and last to stop as Data Services web services and Tomcat require the EIMAdaptiveProcessingServer be running first.

  • Tomcat should be started last stopped first. We start this last so any Real time services are properly loaded,

  • Data Services (Job Server) gets started and stopped in the middle.
