  13. Compare the following two (2) files that were backed up earlier:
    1. Backed up version of 'SC\CommonReporting3\Tomcat7\webapps\OpenDocument\WEB-INF\web.xml '

      WITH

      Current version of 'SC\CommonReporting3\Tomcat7\webapps\OpenDocument\WEB-INF\web.xml '

      There should not be many differences apart from the TrustedAuthentication enablement and Authentication visibility. Merge those items only from the old file to the current file (SC\CommonReporting3\Tomcat7\webapps\OpenDocument\WEB-INF\web.xml)

    2. Backed up version of 'SC\CommonReporting3\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\odbc\odbc.prm '

      WITH

      Current version of 'SC\CommonReporting3\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\odbc\odbc.prm'

      There should not be many differences except for Date Parameters. Merge those items only from the old ODBC.prm file to the current file (SC\CommonReporting3\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\odbc\odbc.prm)

  14. Compare the other two backed up files
    1. Backed up version of 'SC\CommonReporting3\Tomcat7\conf\server.xml'

      WITH

      Current version of 'SC\CommonReporting3\Tomcat7\conf\server.xml '

      Merge only the PORT or HTTPS type of differences.

    2. Backed up version of 'SC\CommonReporting3\Tomcat7\conf\web.xml'

      WITH

      Current version of 'SC\CommonReporting3\Tomcat7\conf\web.xml'

      Merge only security constraints or similar settings that were customized in this file.

Note: A merge tool like WinMerge or Notepad++ could be used to easily identify the above differences.
