SAP BI 4.2 - Promotion Failure for document only

Hi everyone,

I'm experiencing a very strange behavior on one of my clients SAP BI 4.2 enviornment.

When I create promotion job containing folder, category or user access level it is successfully promoted.

But if I create a promtion job with only a webi document (even an empty one without datasource) it fails with this error message :

Commit Status=Commit attempted and failed., Promotion Status=Failure : Object has failed to promote. Please see the log for more details

I tried to look the log file but it doesn't seem to be more detailed :(

Any clue on what could happen ?

    Can you try Promotion Management from Destination system and see if you have the same issue?

    • Hello guys,

      network guy open ports between A and B according to ports used by servers..

      BUT it is still impossible to promote any object using FRS (ie UNX, UNV, WID,...) from B to A even if promote other objects (Rel or OLAP conections, categories,...) is possible.

      Now it is even impossible to add a WID or UNX to promotion job...

      Any idea ?

      I'm going to try fix error with E2E... but I got no hope on this...

    You'll need to run end to end trace and analyze it to see what's happening.
    See KBA1861180 that has details on how to collect it and read it

    and Promotion pattern book : https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Business+Intelligence+Platform+-+Pattern+Books+Index
    it shows how promotion works , so you know which traces logs to collect.
