Size Limit of BIAR files

We have tried to import the BIAR file of roughly 850 megs in size using the Promotion Management front end tool within the CMC and we get the following error message:
Sorry, Promotion management application is unable to process your request.
The error from the server is: Unable to retrieve Job from the selected file. Please check the file.(PRS 00009)Input/output exception occurred : '/apps/software/busxi42/bo42/sap_bobj/tomcat/temp/LCM_BIAR_download55366097325456043052.lcmbiar (No such file or directory)' (FWM 04013) JobFromFileFailed
2. We have tried to import the BIAR file of roughly 850 megs in size using the LCM command line tool in Unix (lcm_cli.sh) and we receive the following error:
Logged in to Central CMS as: administrator
CLI Action selected: Promote
The selected file is not supported.
UnsupportedLCMBIAR
EXIT_WITH_ERROR

I have found two separate SAP notes for our issues above (which I have attached to this email) and I have tried the recommended resolutions, but the import still does not work

Is there any specified size limit for BIAR files ?

    There is no hard limit on BIAR file size.
    If BIAR file size is about to exceed certain thresholds - it will be split into several parts by the export process.

    As to your issue - how and where was the BIAR (or is it LCMBIAR) generated ?
    What product version you're importing it into ?

    Hi Akash,

    May I know, where you have stored your LCMbiar file ?
    LCM_BIAR_download55366097325456043052.lcmbiar, is it your LCMbiar ?

    As per the error it seems that your destination does not support some contents which are present in this job.

    I would suggest you to try with same kind of objects in one shot and check which type of objects are failing.

    Regards,
    Vaibhava
