TM1 & BI Integration issues

One point to be kept in mind while integrating TM1 and BI 10.1.1 is that it is best to stay away from special characters in the member names/aliases.

Another huge point that IBM hasn't confirmed yet but something that I am suspecting is that when you have the same members rolling up to different parent members TM1 makes each of those members unique by concatenating the entire path to the member with "^" character in the MUN. And this character causes the drill up/down feature to be disabled on 10.1.1 (not observed on 10.1).

Special characters like "&" in the member aliases not just in the MUN cause the screen to freeze when drill through links are clicked.
