TARGET VERSION FOR FIX
JIRA ID#

2739532 - BI Platform Support Tool 2.1.x will not launch and is stuck in dialog "BI Platform Classpath Relaunch"

https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2739532

2.1.x2.1.5 
On some Windows clients, the sapclientplugin cannot be launched from E2E Trace Wizard because binary is not code signed and causes UAC pop up2.x2.1.4 
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
