RepoScan guide question ( run -repair with back-up )

Bellow is the reposcan guide:

https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=143065487

In the "Business Intelligence Platform Repository Diagnostic Tool User Guide" there is the following statement:

It is recommended that you back up your CMS database and FRS filestore, and run the RDT against the backed-up version while your SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform services are down. If this is not possible, RDT can be run on an active database.


However there are no clear steps for this best practice.

Can someone provide a feedback on this process ?

This is how I see it:

1. Stop BO (completely)

2. Run back-up on DB and FRS

3. Run reposcan with -repair ( against DB and FRS )

4. Start BO

Recovery: If something goes wrong, stop BO restore DB and FRS and start BO

    Reposcan is run against of CMS DB.So you can stop the BO services.All your steps looks correct for me.

    One question but why you want to run the reposcan command?

    • The specific error in your screenshot appears to be caused by a universe overload that includes a user or group who no longer exists. You might be able to correct it by editing and saving the overload.
