New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Need help with extracting the Report caster repository to load into a new installation(different server).

I tried to execute the extract utility under report caster --> db migration utilities --> migrate repository --> Extract.

I am getting the following error msg '"The Target Version (714) in your migration Config file is invalid"

the webfocus/report caster version same on new and old server 7.1. i am trying to extract from old and load into report caster repository in new server.

any idea to resolve the issue and to run successful extract?

Thank
kash

Unless there's an easy "hack" somewhere, I would open a case with Tech Support on this one.

Have you tried just entering 71 instead of 714? I don't think there were any file format changes in those releases.

Do u just want to migrate the Report Caster tables with all the schedules etc? If that's the case, could'nt you just copy the db to the new server. If you're using a WebFOCUS repository, all the databases sit in the srv71/wfs/catalog directory, and it's just a matter of copying them across.

I found this in a case. Just change 7.1.6 to 7.1.4 and you should be good.

Instructions for the 716 fix to the versiongroup.xml file in SCHMigration.jar:

1) Backup SCHMigration.jar (c:\ibi\ReportCaster\lib)
2) Open SCHMigration.jar with WINZIP and extract to temporary directory
3) In notepad, open versiongroup.xml in /ibi/broker/migrate/resource/
4) Add 7.1.6 to line:

5) Open up command prompt window.
6) cd to temp directory containing extracted archive of SCHMigration.jar
7) Re-jar archive using path to jar command:
c:\j2sdk1.4.2_12\bin\jar cvf SCHMigration.jar *
8) Copy new SCHMigration.jar to c:\ibi\ReportCaster\lib
