I am not able to import the filter,edit the filter, check properties of report and create new publisher export.

when i try to import the filter i get error message saying not able to import please check log installation files.

But im not able to find proper reason for failure log files. When i try to check properties or new publisher , no window pop up is coming.

I am using ARIS Business designer 7.2.

Please help me in understanding what 's going wrong.

PS : We noticed one existing filter was missing, by any chance is this causing the issue?

Any help is much appreciated as it is really very important.

Hello, did you try to reset your sysconfig folder by replacing the existing one (save it before) by the original one from the CD installation?

The sysconfig folder is on the server side : ARIS7.2\server\sysconfig

Once you replace this folder, restart the Aris server and try again to import the filter.

On an other side, are you sure the filter is a 7.2 version?

Best regards.

Hi Gowtham,

You need to restore systemdb (must be there in the installation media)  and updatesystemdb (commands) through ARIS Server Adminstrator. This will help you in updating filters, reports ,common files and templates.This will enable you to import new filters as well.

Hi Pankaj,

I just wanted to inform you, that this possibility does not exists in 7.2, which is the version Gowtham is still using.

The system db came with 9.0.

Hi Gowtham,

Just save all your model templates and filters on your computer and replace the sysconfig folder by the original one :

1 - Stop Aris Server

2 - Detete the sysconfig folder from your server or local server, depending your installation ( ARIS7.2\server\sysconfig )

3 - Unzip the original sysconfig folder (available on the DVD installation : DVD\Addons\sysconfig\ into your server or localserver (in ARIS7.2\server\ )

4 - Restart your server and ARIS

5 - Try to import your filters.

Let me know if it works.

Otherwise, maybe your filter is corrupt.

Best Regards.
