Migration BO 6.5 to XI 3.1 with Import wizard (select source)

Hello,

We have a deployment BO 6.5 and we have a different deployment in BO XI 3.1. (different universe and documents). Now, we need to migrate the deployment BO 6.5 to BO XI 3.1 but we can´t select the source deployment with import wizard in BO XI 3.1. Is it usual?

What we have to do to see the source (deployment BO 6.5)? We think it is the first place to do the migration

We have read the BusinessObjects 5/6 to XI 3.0 Migration Guide but we haven´t the solution in this guide.

Thanks

    Ok, that should be easy. The error indicates that the Oracle database name referenced in bomain.key is not present in your workstation's tnsnames.ora file.

    Incidentally, you should have posted that as a comment (a reply to mine), rather than as an answer.

    Hello,

    I mean, I´m trying to migrating universes and reports using the tool Import Wizard. I try to select the "source enviornment" (BusinessObjects Enterprise 6.x). It ask me to give the user name, password and Domain Key file.

    I filled them, and this error appears:

    Error logging on to the server. Check logon Information and try again. (IWZ 00001) .

    (ERR116) Unable to connect to security domain. Please verify database connectivity:

    ORA-12154: TNS: could not resolve the connect identifier specified ...

    Could somebody help me?

    What Joe said.
    The Import wizard is not able to connect to oracle db where your 6.5 repository is using the bomain.key you providing because the oracle driver on import wizard machine is not configured for that connectivity.

    Joe is right, add the TNS Entry in tnsnames.ora file where you execute(machine) the import wizard.
