Universe Migration Issue

Dear Team..

I am using SAP BO XI R2 FP2.1 version and planning to migrate SAP BO 4.2 SP8.

When I upgraded one sample webI report, connection and universe (respective users, user group and access level), I could successfully moved connection & report however universe is failed.

The universe is *.unw

The issue was "cannot initialize class because prior initialization attempt failed"

Can someone help on resolving issue.

    You cannot directly move from XIR2 to 4.2. First you need to move to 3.1 and then move to 4.2.

    You need to have minimum XIR2 SP2. I assume you have that. Did you run the UMT to move the reports and universes to BI 4.1?

    Do you see issue with only with this universe or any other universes?

    Dipti,

    The ODBC drivers supported by XI R2 FP2.1 are way too old to be supported by BI 4.2 Platform. You will NEED to update the Universe connections manually due to the very old version BOE XIR2 being the source. See below recommended migration path

    Regards,

    there are couple interesting points in your question :
    *.unw - that's a new universe format used in Bi4.2 only and didn't existed in XIR2 - did you converted your unv universe after migration ?
    How did you moved report/universe from R2 to BI4.2 ?
