Problem with UMT (Upgrade Management Tool)

Hello there !

We have 2 machines on Windows Server 2012 R2, and installed on both BI4.1 SP7.

On the test machine all works and on the pre-production machine, we have a java problem with the UMT, whne we execute it, we have this error :

We tried many solutions without success, and both machines have the same Java version (7.80 64bits), same OS, etc...

We tried to copy the "upgrademanagementtool.jar" from the test machine to the other one, we execute on a CMD windows :

java.exe -jar "D:\businessobjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\java\apps\upgradeManagementTool\jars\upgrademanagementtool.jar"

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/osgi/framework/BundleException

Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.osgi.framework.BundleException


at Method)


at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(

at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(

at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(

Could not find the main class: com/businessobjects/upgrademanager/bootstrap/Main. Program will exit.

Someone had already this problem maybe ?

Thank you

    Hello Wendy,

    You can use Process Monitor to trace all files used by UMT.

    The output will show the files loaded successfully during run time, but also the files that were not found, there might be more then just "upgrademanagementtool.jar" missing.

    Once the missing files are identified, you can add them manually from a different machine were UMT is running correctly.

    Hi Wendy ,

    Please perform below steps to resolve the issue :

    • There was incorrect path mentioned in in location /usr/sap/bi4/sap_bobj/enterprise_xi40/java/apps/upgradeManagementTool/jars.
    • For e.g:- The tag in "//sap_bobj/enterprise_xi40/java/lib/".
    • After correcting the paths in, again run the same command

    Please let me know if you have any more queries.
