  1. hi sharma ,

    fristly ,this is a very good site sturctured in very good way .

    i have an issue ,its like i installed BODI on my windows xp , while installation i skipped the step of jobserver creation.

    how can i reslove this problem to make my jobserver run,

    i couldnot find “SERVER manager ” in my “BUSINESSOBJECT Dataintegrator ” when i reach it from “START”-“PROGRAMfile”

    i welcome ur suggestion


    • Thanks for your comments Kiran.

      I think you didn’t select the Job Server component when you install the application. However, go to the LINK_DIR/Bin folder, (\Program Files\Business Objects\Data Integrator/Bin) and search for AWServerConfig.exe.. If you’re not able to find that component then you may need to re-install the application with all components selected properly.
      If you able to see that component in Bin folder then make sure you have a proper license to access that or not. You can verify the license thru license manager component also.

      let me know if this helps!


    • Hello Bujjibabu,

      Thanks for going thru my blog. Well, unfortunately, I do not have DI/DS configured in unix box with me to provide detailed installation steps. However, I would recommend you to go thru DI/DS Technical manuals and there is a chapter called “Installing Data Integrator/Data Servies on UNIX Systems” with step by step bullet points.

      Let me know if you need any info.

  3. Hi Sudheer,

    Do we need to create Central Repository first and then add the repository to the job server, what if create another local repository, do I have to add it to the Job Server?

    Apperciate your help..

    • Create a local repository and attach it to Job server. Central repo is for multi user environment, want to maintain code versoning then central repo is the best option. For this you dont have to attach it to job server, any user can access central repo with appropriate privileges.

      Let me know if you need any help.
