BO 4.2 - Version Control or Configuration Management!!


Hi All,

We use BO 4.2 SP2. The Server is installed in a LINUX machine. Till now we haven't done any sort of Version controlling on any reports or universes of our system.

As we have multiple projects running around currently, we plan to perform version controlling on Universe especially!!

I got to know there is a Version Management option available in CMC (earlier called as LCM) through which we can do this. And it supports Subversion (automatically installed through BO suite) and Clear Case.

Even after going through lot of webpages, I fail to understand the below:

- Need to configure Subversion with some startup scripts, provide details in VMS Settings and Test VMS should PASS. How to do this on a linux machine?

- After this, I will be able to add a repository object to VM in CMC. But, how to retrieve this object (eg in my case a particular Universe) and use it and check in back? Do I need to install SubVersion Client in my machine? Will it be visible in IDT to checkin and check out?

- After doing the changes, how to migrate the history universe to Prod env?

Can I get a document wherein this is described clearly for BO 4.2 SP2 on a linux machine?

Thanks & Regards,
