Hi All,

Request you to help me out in the below one.

I am having about 1000 reports deployed and running successfully. I am trying to have backup of all these reports templates alone. Since the reports are stored in FRS in encrypted way, i am unable to take the backup of reports directly.

Can anyone suggest me a best way to take the backup of reports in the same way as it appears in the BO?

If you are just looking at backing up the templates, as Moussa suggested, use the Import Wizard.  Is there a reason to only be backing up the templates, and not the whole system?  A regular backup would include backing up the FRS and the CMS database.

Hi Dinesh,

I would recommend the import wizard tool

As a distination use Business Intelligence Archive Resource (BIAR) File - your content will be

placed in a compressed file for backup or importing into a different deployment

To retrieve your backed up doc consult SAP note 1305719 - How to import the backup BIAR file to a new installation,
