  • Universe not found.  See your Business Objects administrator. (Error: WIS 00501) (Error: INF )
  • WebI reports are unable to find a Universe after the Universe has been deleted and re-added using the same short name
  • This only occurs if the Universe short name contains spaces and the Universe was deleted in XIR2 SP2
  • Once the error occurs, patching to a newer version where the short name with spaces is no longer a problem will not correct existing reports
