Pinned topic Error when opening a .cpf file

‏2012-04-30T10:01:27Z |
Hi All,

I am getting the attached error when I am trying to open .cpf file.

Created data model in one server and trying to open that in another server. I have transfered the entire folder to another server and trying to open that

Both the server contains the same version of cognos(cognos 10).

How can I proceed??

    The cmplst.txt file on each server will identify the version of the installed products. Compare the version and build numbers between the two environments. Also, compare the version information identified at the start of the model.xml file between models created in each environment.

    Where can i find the cmplst file? I have searched under cognos\bin. I can't find.

    The cmplst.txt file is located at the root of the Cognos install (one directory up from the bin directory).

    Hi,

    This is the information I found in cmplst file of one server

    C8FM_version=C8-AW32-ML-RTM-10.1.6235.143-0

    and the following in cmplst file of another server

    C8FM_version=C8-AW32-ML-RTM-10.1.4707.541-0

    What I have to do now?

    Well, you obviously have a difference in version like the error message was telling you. The first server is using 10.1.1 and the second is using 10.1. Your strategy going forward depends on how much content is in each system. Your options are:
    1. Upgrade 10.1 to 10.1.1 and test all your upgraded content
    2. Downgrade 10.1.1 to 10.1 and redo the work you have done in 10.1.1
    - If the 10.1.1 system has only been used for FM modelling then you might be able to replay the log files to recreate the model in an earlier version. It may also be possible (although unsupported) to modify the initial header information in the model.xml to make it recognizable in 10.1.

    Personally, I would say that you would be better off using 10.1.1 because of the additional dynamic query mode capabilities for DMR models.
