Biarengine issue with UNX universe

Hello All,

I am having an issue with the BIARENGINE on BI4 SP5.

I am moving objects from one repository to another.

Everything is fine except for UNX universes. When opening the unx universe on the destination environment, i get a popup asking me to connect to the source repository.

I have tried creating a new universe and connection but issue persists.

If i use the LCM, then everything if fine and i dont have the above problem.

Any pointers please?

I understand that LCM is the way forward but i really need to use the biarengine for this case.

Query to extract universe and connection:

exportQuery1=select * from CI_APPOBJECTS where SI_ID=XXX

exportQuery2=select * from CI_APPOBJECTS where SI_NAME='XXX.unx'



Note: Both environments are at the same BI4 version

    It is not recommended to use the biarengine.jar and BIAR file for promotion of content between 2 BI4.0. You have to the use the promotion management tool from the CMC or by running the command line. This is with reference to this KBA:

    However, you can try to recreate the connection and to export again the universe as per the instructions of this KBA:

    I hope this helps.

    Best regards,
