    Hi Suman,

    I assume you are looking for backup process in BusinessObjects.You need to back up

    • CMS tables and Audit tables 
    • File Repository Server 
    • Database Connections 
    • Custom applications (java/.Net code)

    Also you need to decide the backup frequency as well.

    Please refer the below URL's for more clarity.

      Hello Mani,

      Actually we planned system copy from BW Production to BW Quality System,

      and the same BOBJ as well.

      So, now my question is the best method to copy BOBJ contents from Production to Quality system

      Please advise

    If you have SAP Bi4.0 you have LCM, did you specifically unselected LCM during installation ?

    LCM is integrated part of BI4 installation.

    There is no other process to move content from QA to PROD or PROD TO QA besides LCM. LCM is the tool you need to use.

    You cannot use Upgrade management tool for this task as it cannot import content from one BI4 system to the other.

    You can theoretically use Federation, but it is not designed for that
