    Hello , In my case I want to recover  a SAP Bo 4.x Servers that contains several webi reports,users  folders , and several BO Servers (several APS, several  WIPS, etc)  I have only the CMS DB Backup(Sybase SQl Anywhere) and the FileStore Folder  a ccording to SAP Backup of BO)

    1. Step 1 and 2 I could do it …
    2. I dont understand  exactly  the NOTE : Previous content MUST be deleted before you restore  , could you explain this ….how to do that?
    3.  Step 3 Phase 1 –  I Suppose this is a new BO installation in the same machine where was  working and then failed  , if this is a new installation  why is running only the  CMS Server in the SIA?

    This is to clarify   all the procedure

     

    Thanks
