I don't really have much experience with CR/BO, but I'd like to create a process for migrating report objects that can be done as part of a scripted install package.  Is this possible?

Currently, we use Crystal Reports to save to BO servers via Enterprise folder, but this requires human interaction at DEV, Acceptance, and Production servers.  Is there better way to port these objects to acceptance / production servers after the dev phase has been completed?

Under 'Publishing Objects to BusinessObjects Enterprise' topic, BO Administrator's Guide only Lists 3 ways to deploy:
BO Publishing Wizard
Central Management Console web interface
Direct to CMS via "one of the Business Objects designer components, such
as Crystal Reports, Designer, or OLAP Intelligence"

Guide link: http://help.sap.com/businessobject/product_guides/boexir2/en/xir2_bip_Admin_en.pdf

wykabryan lists some major pitfalls with the publishing wizard under this topic:

"...there have been some issues raise with the publishing wizard, it is error proned, it will override the existing CUID if the report already exists. This should really only be used when you are importing many reports."

Unfortunately, there's no native tool to do what you're asking and I'm  not aware of any specific third-party tools that would propagate a report to multiple repositories at once.  You could check into the following, but I don't know if it does what you're asking:

Frankly, I think you'll need to develop such a solution.
