The following application can be run on any SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 server to generate a .BIAR file (backup) of the repository. Using the tips from the following article ( http://wp.me/p2868w-8f ), you can then use the UMT, LCM or BIARENGINE.JAR to restore the file.

modify the BOE40Backup.bat file and set the following parameters
BOPATH - Path of the SAP Business Objects Installation
See example below:
SET BOPATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0
BACKUPPATH - Root Path to where the backup files are stored. Files will be saved to the “backup” directory within the path
NETWORKPATH - The UNC path to the network location where the files will be copied. Keep blank if none is required.
ENVNAME - The user defined name that is added to all backup files. Nice to have if there are multiple environments
BACKUPDAYS - The number of days that the backup files are retained on the local drive
DRIVELETTER - The letter of the disk drive that contains this applicaiton
Modify the options.properties file:
exportBiarLocation - The location where the .BIAR file is created. Must match the %BACKUPPATH%\backup path in the BOE40Backup.bat file.
See the XI 3.1 SP3 Admin Guide for further details on the BIARENGINE.JAR options.properties file.
