How to upgrade your Business Objects XI3 install to BI4

SAP have created a useful wiki which provides details on how to upgrade your BusinessObjects XI3 environment to BI4.

The wiki helps you to:

  • Identify what to upgrade
  • Taking backups prior to the upgrade
  • Use of the Upgrade Management Tool
  • Conversion of the Business Objects universes from .unv format to unx. format

A couple of things to be aware of:

  • BI4 uses a different audit schema
  • A 64bit Operating System is required for BI4

Certainly worth a read prior to undertaking the upgrade.

The link to the wiki is open for all and can be found here:
