Import Wizard

Current Production environment has BOE-XI with Crystal Reports against Oracle 9i. I have a new environment, with BOE-XIR2 installed. I would like to import all the Crystal Reports from the production into this new environment and point to a new database Oracle 10g.

Can someone give me a detailed step by step solution to do this? Some questions come to my mind is; If I use import wizard, will it have any impact on the Production BOE-XI? Please do NOT say, refer to the install document. I have access to it. I would like to hear practical steps, concerns, issues.

Thank you.

Hi Kris,

The reason the steps for your migration are not documented is because to one extent or another every migration/customer is different. All have different features/reports/data sources/etc and there is no way to document every possible scenario. This is why you see other posts that recommend getting a BO consultant or opening a message with support if you get stuck.

I did notice there is a new import wizard doc for our latest release (3.1) but it doesn't cover CE9. Most of the features of the import wizard are the same + some additional 3.1 enhancements (such as delegated administrator) [IW 3.1|http://help.sap.com/businessobject/product_guides/boexir31/en/xi3-1_bip_importwiz_en.pdf]

There doesn't seem to be one for XIR2 for CE9. There used to be a 5x/6x that at least illustrated the import wizard screens(but I don't see that on our doc site).

Depending on what you are migrating the CMS and FRS servers will be utilized pretty heavily during a migration(up to all DB objects and FRS files). It's always best to restore Prod to a test server and migrate from there.

Regards,

Tim
