2418437 - How to use the SAP BI Platform Support Tool End to End Trace Wizard


  • The End to End (E2E) Trace Wizard is designed to streamline the process of executing an E2E Trace in the SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform landscape.
  • The wizard essentially automates the procedure outlined in SAP KB Article 1861180 - Customer instructions and best practice for collecting a BI Platform 4.x end to end trace.
  • When executing an E2E Trace with the BIPST, the following actions are handled by the wizard:
    • The SAP Client Plug-in launches directly from the BIPST client (any open IE windows will first be closed to insure successful trace)
    • GLF trace files are collected from each BI node and Web Application Server node (this can occur via the SAP Host Agent or via UNC Shared Folders)
    • The BO_trace.ini is restored back to default on each BI node 



  • SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform 4.x
  • BI Platform Support Tool 2.x
