Support for SAP Integration Kit on Linux in XI/R2 or XI 3.0?

Hello all,

I cannot find the proper information in the "supported platforms guides": do we support SAP Solution Kit on Linux servers? Where can I find the correspondig document for XI/R2 and XI 3.0?

A customer wants to set up BOE on Linux and integrate with SAP systems (SAP BI), both for reporting with Crystal reports AND WebIntelligence, so WebI OLAP universes must be supported. Is this possible with any one of the XI releases?

Any information appreciated,

Walter

I know the documentation, but it does not say anything about the support of WebI-Olap universes on SAP BI...

Hello all,

I just had a phone talk with someone from the product management: it seems as if the information in the PAR is right: WebI on Linux only available with V 3.1 (GA in Oct)...

Only Unix platform with WebI on top of SAP/BI and XI 3.0 is Sun solaris.

Sorry, Roland you are right: AIX and SOLARIS are the 2 UNIXes which support Webi ontop of SAP/BI in BOE XI 3.0

3.1 will bring the rest of the platforms...

Hello Walter,

the SAP Integration Kits for Linux for BOE XI/R2 or XI 3.0 can be downloaded from the ESD site.

The Kits are supported for all supported Linux versions.

Best regards
