1856629 - Creating a second RAS Service script for deploying a multiple CRSE RAS application does not require Report folder path information

Symptom

Environment

CRS Embedded ( OEM ) application deployment. Users want to create one or more Services.

Part of the configuration is to specify the Report folder location, this is done through the CCM and RAS Properties

When using multiple RAS Servers the first Service specifies where the report are located and is the only one required to have it specified.

 

Reproducing the Issue

Example of how to add a RAS Service via a CMD command Line script:

C:\Windows\System32>sc.exe create BOEXI40CrystalReportApplicationServer6 binpath = "\\C$\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise X I 4.0\win32_x86\crystalras.exe\" -name BOEXI40.RAS_6 -ipport 7004 -service DisplayName=My New RAS Server start= auto

to delete the service:

C:\Windows\System32>sc.exe delete BOEXI40CrystalReportApplicationServer6 binpath = "\\C$\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise X I 4.0\win32_x86\crystalras.exe\" -name BOEXI40.RAS_6 -ipport 7004 -service DisplayName=My New RAS Server start= auto

Resolution

No need to specify the the location of the reports in the scripts for all other additional Services

Note: Additional RAS Services are typically created through the CCM. For deployment purposes RAS Servers can be installed via the above scripts through the Installer process.
