Setting up the relational connection from SAP BusinessObjects BI (BI) to the AP Netweaver Business Warehouse (BW) is a complex configuration. Many errors are encountered, from the initial error attempting a connection from the Information Design Tool to performance or timeout errors in Web Intelligence.  This connection method is not recommended.  You can read about this Here.

To assist in a remedy of these issues I have created a step through guidance to check if your configuration was accurately created and configured on both the BI platform and the BW backend.

I will be adding additional troubleshooting links to this page for the most seen issues for connectivity.

I issues fall into three groups:

  1. Connection Errors

  2. Semi-join Errors

  3. Query Errors


Some issues that have been encountered for Connection Errors:

  • Gateway Refused

  • Host Not found

  • Error Registration of top <program ID> not allowed.

  • JCO_ERROR_ILLEGAL_STATE: Current server state dead.

  • Could not retrieve InfoProvider tables from data source.  An error occurred while trying to ping the server

  • The SAP BW server reported an RFC error:  Error during RFC callback:Function RSDRI_DF_RECEIVER not found.

  • Webi Report on BW UNX has poor performance.

  • Webi Report on BW UNX Error.

  • An error occurred while trying to ping the server: SAP NetWeaver BW has reported an RFC error: Error during RFC callback: Error when opening an RFC connection (CPIC-CALL: ' ThSAPOCMINIT' : cmRc=2 thRc=67.

  • Error registration of DF_JCO_Servername from host ??? not Allowed.

  • Error [Data Federator Driver] [Server] [Connector 'testSourceConnection1234567890'] Timeout expired while testing the connection. Please check the configuration parameters.

  • AdaptiveProcessingServer crashes or Restarts from Multisource BW Reports

For the connection the first step is to check if the configuration is correct with a guided answer
