Crystal Reports Server XI R2 Backup and Restore


Dear Forum Users!

How do I best perform a Backup of my Crystal Reports Server XI R2 Environment?

What we need to do is provide our customers the means to backup their reports. They store their reports on Crytal Reports Server.

So how do I backup the CMS Repository including the - in our case - MYSQL Database and the Filestore?

I tried using the Import Assistent exporting into a BIAR File - this works fine.

But when try to import into Crystal Reports Server in my Test Environment (it is a separate installation of Crystal Reports Server, but the Same Version and even in the same drive and directory) the reports fail to import with the following error:

(Translated form German to English):

Error on handing the export object to the Target-CMS. Reason: Assigned object data could not be loaded into the file repository server:

(obj eng_ASS_AssignmentsAndHandlingPersons_en_US, id 713 ) : Error on File Repository Server: The File-URL frs:/// is invalid. Please check the format of the URL...

I only face the above problems when I try to import into a different installation of Crystal Reports Server. Whereas if I do the export - import on the same server everything works fine.

Thanks in advance for your help.
