Workflow

1) In the CCM, change the default location of the FRS to a share.

2) In the CMC, update the Input and Output FRS servers on the BI platform servers to the shared location.

To change the FRS location in the CCM

By default, the FRS is located here C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\FileStore. It needs to be moved to share on the WINFRS01 machine.

1) Log in to the machine Vantgvmpb04 using an administrator account.

2) To open the CCM, click Start > All Programs > SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4 > SAP BusinessObjects BI platform > Central Configuration Manager(CCM).



3) Right-click Server Intelligence Agent, and click Stop.




4) When the SIA has stopped, to access the FRS share, click Start > Run, and in the "Run" dialog box, type the path to the FRS share: \WINFRS01\FRS.

 
5) Copy the Input folder and Output folder from C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\FileStore to \\WINFRS01\FRS

6)  Once the files are copied, count the folders and files in both locations to ensure they match in number.
