BITBITOOL-1796

Communications analyzer fails for HEC systems

Communications analyzer will now check if there is assigned IP or Hostname on the BI server and perform connection test on that. If it's auto assigned, then will check server hostname (as it was done previously).

2.1.11

BITBITOOL-1792

Communications Analyzer takes long time to export

Previous Save to Excel was performing the same connection tests again which causes long delays when there are any failed ports. Now it will simply copy the values from the table to excel. Also made the output much easier to read.

TARGET VERSION FOR FIX

JIRA ID#

Webi Doc Masker is not working with newer versions lower than BI Platform 4.3 SP01.
WebI Doc Masker now works for the BI Platform version that the SDK is being used.
-BIPST 2.1.10, 4.2 SP06 SDK was used.
-BIPST 2.1.11 to BIPST 2.1.12, 4.3 SP01 SDK is used.
2.x2.1.12
On some Windows clients, the sapclientplugin cannot be launched from E2E Trace Wizard because binary is not code signed and causes UAC pop up2.x2.1.5
Hardware Summary Analysis report not working when BI is running on AIX platform. This is a limitation of the SAP Host Agent. ETA for a fix to the SAP Host Agent is unknown at this point.2.xUnknown

E2E Trace Wizard : In some cases, using a domain user from a different domain (not the domain of the user currently logged on to windows) causes the SAP Client Plug-in Administrator logon to fail. (this logon allows the SAP Client Plug-in to start under local administrative access).

Workaround: Use a local administrator account instead of domain account with local admin access on the BIPST client. Or, use the domain\user of the account that is currently logged on to Windows (assuming this user has local admin rights on the BIPST client)

Workaround 2: Uncheck the option to Use Integrated SAP Client Plug-in and on step 3 manually launch the SAP Client Plug-in from the location:

<BIPST_INSTALL_DIR>\BISupport\bin\sapclientplugin
