Impossible to install one universe twice in CMC (Business Objects 4.2) ?


I want to install one universe in 2 different folders (TEST and PROD).

I imported the lcmbiar file in the TEST folder (without security promotion).

Then I imported the same lcmbiar in the PROD folder and discovered that the previous universe that I had installed in the TEST folder had disappeared.

As if it was impossible to import twice the same universe.

Could you help me understand why this happens?

Thank you very much.

    Not sure how you can import a universe to a TEST folder and then into a PROD folder, but the important point is here the CUID of the universe. Everytime you import the universe with the same CUID will be overwritten even this is located in a different folder. You have to use UDT (for unv) or IDT (for unx) to export a copy of the universe and get a new CUID.
