    Importing Components from previous version

    Bill Bruncati

      I have a BL system running 8.2.01. I have some components that were exported to my laptop.

      Each component is made up of a "blexport" and a "mapping" file. I haven't been able to import

      them.

       

      When I try the "Import Version-neutral" option , it's looking for a zip file. I zipped up the files but I still get an error:

       

      Zip NOT version neutral.jpg

      Then I try the standard import option. And I get:

      Standard directory.jpg

       

      Check the log.jpg

      I've checked the appserver.log but there's no info in there about the import.

      Is there something else I can check or try ?

       

      Thanks,

      Bill

          You need to export w/ the version neutral option.

            Bill,

            I've exported the component using "Version-Neutral" but when I try to import it , my appserver.log shows

            the following "Permission denied" problem. My wb238w ID has the Role of BLAdmin so I don't know

            why I'd have a permission problem.

            Thanks,

            Bill

              you are running this on the appserver, as your own user account?

               

              move the file to /tmp and try it, and make sure the 'bladmin' user can read it.

                Bill,

                I opened up the permissions on my directory and folder for the zip files and that did the trick.

                Thanksk,

                Bill
