[BO XI R2] Restore after server crash


here is my configuration :

  • server 1 : Business Objects XI R2 applications
  • server 2 : CMS Oracle (10g) database

"Server 1" has crashed (hard drive failure) and I want to reinstall a new server using existing CMS database (server 2).

I first tryed to backup and restore CMS Oracle database on another server, but the result is the same that "plugging" new BO install on existing CMS database, meaning : I see my universes in designer, but can't import them. Obviously, the files are not present in the file repository server (server 1).

Question is : is it possible to plug a fresh BO install to my existing Oracle CMS database ?

    It's only possible if you have CMS DB backup and the Filestore backup then only you can replicate the OLD Env without any issue.

    If you have any QA or DEV Env with the same content you canĀ  migrated the Data from there.

    Else if you have a backup in the .biar file you can also restore from there.

      To recover you should have File store and CMS DB, So that you can point it on your test systems . Your biar files should work to import however not sure about the size you are trying to import. Any specific error do you see ?. You can enable import wizard log trace on your machine and see whats going wrong with that(google it for more details on that ) .
