For Earlier business objects versions, Migration of objects (like universes, reports and program objects) from one environment (development) to another environment (Test) and BIAR back up  are done  through Import Wizard but in BO 4.0, this is handled through LCM (life cycle manager).The LCM is web based application; you can access through web browsers.

The LCM BIAR backup steps are listed out as below

Steps for creating the  job

          1.      Log on to the LCM through  URL http://systemname:8080/BOE/LCM (system name refers your BO 4.0 server name, this may be customized)
