BIAR Deployment without import wizard facing new problem

Hi All,

While importing BIAR through command line we are facing "Error in opening zip file, BIAR File could not be imported".

Environment Details:

BO XI R2 with SP2 is running on Sun Solaris 10.

BO CMS repository database is in MySQL 5.0

We have checked below prerequisites to run InstallEntSdkWrapper.jar and found ok.

1. Business Objects XI R2 environment is with BO Service Pack 2.

2. InstallEntSdkWrapper.jar file is located under bo/bobje/java/lib/ 3. JDK Version is higher than 1.4. (path in profile is also set)

Command :

bo/bobje/java/lib> java -jar InstallEntSdkWrapper.jar "Development"

"administrator" "" "secEnterprise" Reports.biar

(Reports.biar file is placed under bo/bobje/java/lib/)

Output :

[InstallEntSdkWrapper.main] Connecting to CMS Development as administrator [InstallEntSdkWrapper.CmsImportFile] Exception: Import file parsing exception occurred : 'error in opening zip file'

[InstallEntSdkWrapper.main] BIAR File could not be imported

Could you please suggest us where we are going wrong or is there anything that we are missing.

    Parsing error on the file.

    If you copy Reports.biar to an empty directory, and unjar it:

    jar xvf Reports.biar

    what do you see?

    Does the XML file BusinessObjects.xml file appear corrupted?
