Upgrade to BOBI 4.0
Hello, I am very new to SAP and I am currently trying to plan an upgrade from Business Objects XI Release 2 SP4 to BOBI 4.0. Our current setup is 1 web/app server running Server 2003 R2 SP1 and a remote database server running Server 2003 R2 SP1 with SQL 2000. Our wish is to replace to replace both servers and I’m trying to figure out the best way to do. Basically, we’re building a new web/app server to to install BOBI 4.0 on and will be wanting to move the existing database to another server that will be running Server 2008 R2 SP1 with SQL 20008 R2. What is the best way to approach this? I’m a little confused on how I should configure the database during the setup of 4.0. Do I point the installer to the existing database and then move it later or do I point the installer to the new database server? Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks.
