Update Earned Value and Cost Totals job is not updating baseline attributes of a project

We have created 600 projects in CA PPM by xogging. We are facing few issues with baseline creation via xog in. We used the below code to xog in the baselines.


<Project managerResourceID="***" name="XXXX" projectID="12345" finish="2017-03-31T17:00:00" start="2012-07-01T08:00:00">
<ProjectBaseline currentRevision="true" name="XXXX - Baseline" revisionID="BLN0000577" >
<BaselineDetails costSum="0" duration="100" finish="2017-03-31T17:00:00" start="2012-07-01T08:00:00" usageSum="0">


The baselines are successfully created with BAC value. We have also ran the "Update Earned Value and Cost Totals" job. But only BAC value is successfully populated, and the other baseline attributes (such as Cost variance, BCWS, BCWP etc.,) are not populated in the baseline for the project. 


We have to select the "update baseline" action to update the baseline attributes successfully (which inturn is running the "update earned value cost totals" job for th project). Creating a baseline manually for a project is also producing the desired result.


Kindly assist us with, why the "Update Earned Value and Cost Totals" job ran manually under jobs is not populating the baseline attributes, but selecting "update baseline" action is working successfully.


Please let us know, if there is an alternate procedure other than updating the baselines for these projects manually.

We are currently running CA PPM 15.2 with MS SQL.
