This post is about Russell Beech in discussion on the SAP Forum. SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise was installed on a machine running Windows XP. It was being used for development, POC and sales demo purposes. Windows XP was a constraint imposed by the standard build of the organisation that he was working for. Russell identified that the issue was a clash between Java components and Windows XP. This issue was becoming very time consuming and the solution was looking more and more like it needed a Java customisation. Not wanting to pursue that route Russell finally got permission to install Windows Server 2003. The problems were instantly solved. The forum thread is reproduced below as it gives useful insights into troubleshooting or go to http://forums.sdn.sap.com/message.jspa?messageID=6076352 to view it on the forum.

XI 3.0 Tomcat Service Will Not Start
Posted: Aug 26, 2008 4:23 PM
I have installed Enterprise XI 3.0 from the Business Objects ESD site. I took the option to install Tomcat. The Tomcat service installed but will not start from the CCM or the .bat file.
I expected that as in previous releases Tomcat would be configured through the install. All other Business Objects services are running.
Has anyone had the same experience? Does anyone have a fix?
