BI Publisher Software was integrated with Cloud Control R4. Nevertheless is should be configured by running configureBIP script.

In case SYSMAN password is changed since the software was installed (or contains special charactes), the first attempt to run configureBIP fails with error:

BIP Schema is not created

The second/third attempts to run configureBIP partially succed (assuming that schema exist) , but BI will not fully work as there is no BIP Repository.


 BI Configuration fails in any of the following situations:
1. If SYSMAN user contains special characters (e.g $)
2. If SYSMAN pwd had been changed since the Cloud Control was installed until first run of configureBIP script
