BPC Restore Issues !

Hi All

I am attempting to migrate BPC 5.1 Development environment to a different host and as per the sap document "How Tou2026Backup & Restore with SAP BPC (MS SQL 2005) i performed all the below mentioned steps but somehow "http://hostname/osoft" does not open up it gives me "Server Error in '/Osoft' Application" - Exception details: System Exception: Invalid User ID.

I think this may be security related issue or something. I am NOT sure whether additional steps necessary to do prior to start restoring these databases and folders.

Please reply me back.

Thanks and regards
