  2. The EP system FQDN and the BOE FQDN are in the same AD or DNS domain
  3. In the CMC > authentication > SAP > options, a default system is selected
  4. The web.xml for BOEinstall\tomcat55\webapps\infoviewapp and BOEinstall\tomcat55\webapps\opendocument have the folllowing
  • sso.enabled set to true
  • siteminder.enabled set to false
