BI 4.2: Issue when migrating univers with UMT

I am experiencing a problem while migrating from a BO XI R2 Platform to a BI 4.2 sp 3 patch 3 (Windows server) trought UMT. I have selected folders and universes. During migration, i did not have problems with the folders, however, for univers i have the following error:

com/businessobjects/sdk/plugin/desktop/universe/internal/JupUnvConvJni : cannot initialize class because prior initialization attempt failed

I've tried creating a biar file from de source Bo XI R2 and work with it instead of a "live vers live" promotion, with no positive results

I've found a solution in the KBA related to the migratio from a BO XR2 to B 4.2, but after the manipulatio, we still have the same situation:

KBA 2350417 - UMT fails with error "Objects of kind "Universe" were not updated because the "Universe" plugin failed unexpectedly while sorting these objects" while migrating universes.

I also followd the guidelines in the KBA

Master KBA: 1904814 - Best practices for a successful migration to BI4 using the upgrade management tool

1964085 - BI 4.1 UMT Exits itself without error while migrating Universe (univers are not corrupted)

2424335 - 4.2 SP3+ UMT fails to import existing content from some biar files from XI31

Any ideas?

thanks in advance for your help!!

Are you able to open and refresh sample webi reports in your BI4.2 environment ?
Are you able to import sample universes into UDT or create and publish universe in 4.2 UDT or IDT tools into the Platform ?

KBA 2350417 doesn't apply to your scenario as the error is different, it looks like UMT is not able to load classes it needs to convert UNV's from R2 to 4.2.

Are you running UMT on your 4.2 server machine ?
Can you tell more about that server ?

Hi Moises,

have you found a solution to this issue? I am facing the same problem with a migration from XI R2 to 4.2 SP4

I am getting the same issue, migrating from XI R2 to BI 4.2 SP5 using the UMT. There are no problems with the BI 4.2 system I installed (last week). Looks like this is some kind of problem with compatibility with XI R2. Has anyone found a solution?
