It is very important to always backup the metadata repository before making changes to your Sage Intelligence Reporting installations.

To backup, do the following:

  1. Launch the Report Manager
  2. Select File
  3. Select Backup Metadata and Templates
  4. Accept the dialogue to close
  5. Select the path to backup to

Please ensure that you are a Domain Administrator or have access to the metadata folder when you complete this process
