    Also, if you're using any dynamic parameters or business views in your reports, I highly suggest logging in to the XIr2 system with the XIr2 Business View Manager and exporting them to .xml files. Then import them to the new system using the BI4.1 version of Business View Manager. Do this prior to migrating your reports. Sometime the UMT does not handle the "repository objects" for dynamic params and business views well and this will prevent problems.

    UMT is the best method, but make sure you are familiar with relevant pattern books :
