2342517 - Unable to use Promotion Manager with a Lumira document (FWM 04011)


When trying to migrate a Lumira document using Promotion Manager, it fails with the error:

Resolution Status=Not Applicable, Dependency Status=Not Applicable, Commit Status=Commit attempted and failed., Promotion Status=Failure : com.businessobjects.sdk.biar.BIARException$EngineException: XSD file parsing exception occurred : 'Could not find type meta-data with name 'lu:VISILums' for element 'lu:VISILums'' (FWM 04011)


  • SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform 4.1 SP5
  • Lumira Server 1.28
  • Lumira Server 1.29
  • Lumira Server 1.30
  • Lumira Server 1.31


This error occurs because support for Lumira Document was not added to Promotion Manager until BI 4.1 SP6.


To resolve this issue, upgrade your Enterprise system to Service Pack 6 or higher.


If the system is already at Service Pack 6 or higher, then a repair install on the Lumira Server installation may resolve the issue.
