Pre-requisites :

Banking services from SAP is a SAP NetWeaver add-on that uses functions from the components FINBASIS and SEM-BW. You must install the following components before installing banking services from SAP 9.0 (FSAPPL 500):



The Bank Analyser system consists of atleast two logical clients and SAP recommends to setup two clients as below

  1. One Tool BW client

  2. One of more Bank Analyzer clients.

The Tool BW client provides services to the bank analyzer clients, such as characteristics repository or index function for primary objects in the source Data Layer and bank analyzer client uses the function offered by Tool BW.

note: As several bank analyzer client uses single Tool Bw client, the data stored in tool BW has to be assigned to source clients and this can be done using the source system ID (Characteristic 0SOURSYSTEM) .


Below are the main post installation steps once the bank analyzer addon installation is completed.

  1. Namespace settings

The following namespaces are used for operating the tool BI system and must be set to changeable since no other objects like key figures and characteristics can be generated and activated (see also SAP Note 1375827):
• /B20/
• /BA1/
• /BA1C/
• /B20C/
• /BIC/

2. System Parameters
Change the following system parameters:
• abap/shared_objects_size_MB to a value of 500 or higher
• enque/table_size to a value of 10000 or higher
• rdisp/max_wprun_time to a value of 3600

3. Implementation of Notes
Implement the following SAP Note: 1529649 Factory Calendar expires in 2010


4. Setup the Tool BW client using client copy and 000 as source client (use SAP_All or SAP_CUST profile)

creating background user and assigning appropriate roles and profiles as per note mentioned above

create RFC destination using the same which is assigned to tool bw client

In RSADMINA table create new entry and make sure the user created above, client ID, the RFC destination name are entered.


5. Initialize the BW client using RSA1, make sure the Myself connection (which is created above is active) and proceed with below step for activating the Infoobject catalogs for BI content. You can activate the BI_Cont as following.

  • Select Financials Management & Controlling → Financial Accounting → General Ledger Accounting (0FIGL).

  • Drag the FIGL: Characteristics InfoObject catalog into the right-hand window (choose Sourcesystem Myself when asked).

  • Mark InfoObject Catalog 0FIGL_CHA01 and all InfoObjects of FIGL: Characteristics for installing.

  • Check that InfoObject 0BAL_DEPEND is also marked for installing.

  • Activate the BI content by choosing Install.

  • If the activation log shows the error message “InfoObject 0BAL_DEPEND is not available in version A”, activate InfoObject 0BAL_DEPEND manually via transaction RSD1 and repeat the Installation step.

  • Check that InfoObject Catalog 0FIGL_CHA01 is active and that it contains InfoObject 0GL_ACCOUNT via transaction RSD1, function All InfoObjects of an InfoObject Catalog.


6. Setting up the Bank Analyzer client.

  • Create new client and assign logical system and perform client copy using SAP_All or SAP_CUST profile using SCCL tcode

  • Regenerate the BDT screens: To do so, start transaction BUSP in the new client. Enter the values “BACF” and “BAMD” in the Application Object field and start the report.

  • Create new background user and an RFC destination using above logical system

  • Assign the bank Analyzer client to Tool BW client and this can be done using SPRO as below. Create new entry and enter required details.

  • Next perform the initial configuration using start the initial configuration in Customizing for Financial Services under Bank Analyzer → Basic Settings → Global Settings → Run Initial Configuration.


Activating the Business content - The business content activation can be performed using ASU tool box and below are two important steps which need to be followed in sequence for business content activation and which can be done by XML files

  1. Prepare bank analyzer client - ASU_INST_500_SETUP.xml

  2. Installation of business content - ASU_BC_INST_GLOB_Vxx.xml

Activation of business content

  • download the xml files from SAP note 2232655 and extract it (It is important to keep all extracted files in one single folder)

  • execute the tcode /n/asu/start in the bank analyzer client

  • Upload the xml file first ASU_INST_500_SETUP.xml by choosing "Import New ASU content definition"

And perform the relevant steps manually first under manual preparation steps and then perform the Manual steps under follow-up Steps.

Also we will have each manual step procedure described in the same page as well.

After each step is performed successfully, you need to set the status of each step to "Processing checked and ok" .

The installation will be completed when last step is completed successfully .
