BPC NW 7.5 Appset Backup/Restore - Restore of BPC appset metadata failing

Good morning:

Our goal is to copy a BPC appset from our QA to our development server using the BPC NW 7.5 Appset Backup/Restore -

(tcode UJBR or program UJT_BACKUP_RESTORE_UI)

Issue: The restore of the appset to BWD is working properly for transaction data and master data but we are having issues restore the metadata. The restore program is aborting with a short dump when selecting metadata (we tried the restore with trans/meta/master data and with metadata alone)

This is more than likely a resource issue with our development server since the same restore is successful into the production server. However, we have 86GB of memory on the DEV server and our appset is not that large e.g. the metadata file is only about 1GB. Though we are suspecting the issues may be due to the fact that we use a virtual environment (VMWare) and causing differences in memory management.

1. What BPC areas / tables are backed up under the metadata of the restore program UJT_BACKUP_RESTORE_U ?

2. Is there a way to optimize the metadata restore e.g. run as multiple steps, etc ?

3. Any other suggestions or workaround to let us complete this restore into BWD (we would rather avoid doing a system refresh from BWQ to BWD since we have a lot of development in process in BW Dev)

Thank you in advance,
