  • 04/02/15--06:04: InfoView - Launchpad
  • Experts,

    I have a new instance of BI 4.x installed on Win Sever 2008, when i am in CMC and view the report history or schedule them it works fine. Whereas when i open the report history or properties in InfoView- Launchpad. Properties dialog box popups but it freezes in loading stage. There is no error it just stays idle and i am unable to close the window. I have to hit refresh to go to the home page.

    Did i miss to install something? I am running this on IE browser from the server itself and in CMC it works fine. Only while viewing the report properties or history/scheduling from InfoView is the problem. Did someone experience the same issue? Please share. I am not able to find any solution on

    Thanks in advance.

  • 04/02/15--06:53: Upgrade BI4.0 to 4.1
  • Hello,


    We are upgrading from 4.0 to 4.1. I wanted to inquire about a few things before we do that.


    What is the maximum number of objects I can move from 4.0 to 4.1 at a time using Promotion Management (LCM). Since we have a huge inventory, we want to minimize the upgrade time/ reduce downtime.


    Also, do we have any Best Practice document by SAP that we can use or any document that shows a step by step process of Promotion Management?


    Your help would be appreciated.

  • 04/02/15--08:28: reposcan parameter options?
  • I am trying to run the reposcan utility on our 4.1 SP01 Patch 6.


    I have found and have been using these resources...


    How to use Repository Diagnostic Tool (reposcan) - Business Intelligence (BusinessObjects) - SCN Wiki


    I have gotten it to run like this...

    reposcan.exe -dbdriver sqlserverdatabasesubsystem -connect "UID=xxxxxxxx;PWD=xxxxxxxx;DSN=xxxxxxxx" -dbkey xxxxxxxx -inputfrsdir "E:\Apps\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\FileStore\Input" -outputfrsdir "E:\Apps\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\FileStore\Output" -count 0

    What I want to do now is only scan the FRS, not the CMS with an ultimate goal of scanning and repairing just the FRS.  The documentation for page 12 of the PDF from above lists the following for the scanfrs and scancms options.



    I have tried adding all sorts of variations.


    I added -scancms=False like this...

    reposcan.exe -dbdriver sqlserverdatabasesubsystem -connect "UID=xxxxxxxx;PWD=xxxxxxxx;DSN=xxxxxxxx" -dbkey xxxxxxxx -inputfrsdir "E:\Apps\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\FileStore\Input" -outputfrsdir "E:\Apps\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\FileStore\Output" -count 0 -scancms=False

    It runs, but I get the same results as before I added it.


    I have also tried these variations...

    • -scancms False
    • -scancms "False"
    • -scancms false
    • -scancms 0


    They all result in the following error...

    Internal error: An unknown exception has occurred.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi -


    I am getting this exact same error that was outlined in this thread: Auditing Problem and have a similar setup where we are using SQL Express as the default installation database.  The database is full at 4GB and we are getting error messages in the Windows Event Viewer indicating that the database can't be increased due to the 4GB limitation.


    I followed the resolution that was in the previous discussion - in the Auditing tab I changed the default number of days from 36000 something to 85.  This had no effect on the size of the database (it is using the exact same amount of space) and the error messages in the Auditing tab and the Windows event viewer are still occurring.  This also has lead to the log file for the Audit database to grow to over 7GB.  I tried adjusting the auditing to the minimum as well, and this too had no effect.


    Basically it seems as though BI 4.0 is not deleting any data when I changed the number of days to keep.  While I could adjust this smaller again, I don't believe it will resolve the issue. 


    What are the procedures for manually clearing data out of the Audit database tables when reducing the number of days of Auditing retained doesn't work?


    These are the errors I am getting in the Auditing tab:


    Warning: "No connection to Auditing Data Store from CMS <CMS Name>


    WARNING: Auditing data may remain in server buffers

    <CMS Name>.DashboardDesignCacheServer,<CMS Name2>.DashboardsCacheServer, <CMS Name3>.DashboardsCacheServer


    And this is the one from the Windows Event Viewer:


    Log Name:  Application
    Source:    MSSQL$BOE140
    Date:      4/2/2015 3:02:20 PM
    Event ID:  1105

    Task Category: Server

    Level:     Error
    Keywords:  Classic
    User:      N/A
    Computer:  <CMS Name1>


    Could not allocate space for object 'dbo.ADS_EVENT'.'ADS_EVENT_7' in database 'BOE140_Audit' because the 'PRIMARY' filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup.


    At least I know why I am getting the errors, but not sure what I can do about resolving them.

    Hello Expects-


    Long story short- My client have foreign exchange business. When a store reaches 80% of its sales target, management need to get alert mail.

    Right now- front end application is Java base and Database is DB2. We built few Universe and Webi reports for general reports.


    Is there any way that we can use Alerts in crystal reports and scheduling concept in CMC and generate alert mails or any other process to achieve this.


    Please let me know the possible way.

    Im having difficulty creating a publication with more than say 10 reports (not sure what the exact number where it fails).  What i wanted to do was create a report with about 20 separate reports getting setup with all the unique parameters during personalization, then create a single output email with all the reports.  I get an error message in the publication log such as:[No personalization applied] for all the reports.   If i take the same publication and split it into 7 or 8 reports, it runs fine. 


    any idea if there is a limit and if theres a way to get past it?

    From BI Launchpad, I go to the Documents tab and click on the 'Folders' section and then I open the folder that contains my report.  I double click on the report and it displays and the refresh date is an older date( I think the date reflects the last time the report was refreshed and saved in Crystal Reports 2013 ).  I refresh the report and it runs and displays.  The refresh date has been updated to the current date time.   I go to File>>Send To>>BI Inbox and select myself as a 'Selected Recipient'.  I then click Send.  Next, I go to my In Box and see that a new instance was created but when I open the new instance it shows the old refresh date.  How can I get an instance of the latest refreshed report to show in my In Box?

    We access a Crystal Reports Server through our web application that uses the Java SDK.  In one of our environments, we are seeing the error below.  I'm unable to tell what's causing the issue.  From what I've read so far it sounds like it could be a connection problem, an issue with report parameters, or an issue with the report itself.  Does anyone know what this error means?||isProcessUsingJavaEngine(): file name=, error=The property with ID SI_FILES does not exist in the object (FWM 02021)


    We're using BI version 4.1 with support pack 5.

    Hi all,


    I've created a dashboard in Dashboards 4.1 SP 4 and published it to BI Platform. There is a URL button in the dashboard linking to a WebI report in the same server.


    According to what I 've read in SCN posts, if the dashboard is opened from within the BI launchpad, Open Document is supposed to use the existing session username and password but in my case , when I click the URL button in the dashboard to open a WebI report , a new tab is opened and the logon screen appears.



    Am I missing something?

    I believe the Web Services SDK for Java will allow us to send request to the semantic layer.

    In order to access the universe I will need to use a combination of the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform 4.0 (semantic layer) SDK and the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform 4.0 (BI document access and administration). Can Someone please confirm that I'm folowing right process.

    I've have developed an SDK utility to archive reports older than 365 days from BOXI Repository and store them as PDF documents on our SAN storage. I’m trying to figure out the best way to mark an instance as archived so that we are not reevaluating reports since most of our reports have over 1500 report instances. I’m currently updating SI_KEYWORD as ‘InstanceArchived’ but this is updating SI_UPDATE_TS, so the report instance date is getting updated causing confusion for end users.


    Query criteria for archiving report instances -



                         + iDocID + "' " + "AND SI_STATUSINFO = '' AND SI_KEYWORD != 'InstanceArchived'";

  • 04/06/15--20:26: Workbook Migration Error
  • Hi All,


    I am getting error WORKBOOK MAY NOT BE VALID while migrating few workbooks.


    Detailed Error description is :



    An error occurred while reading the metadata associated with this query in the workbook. This metadata is stored in two hidden repository sheets: SAPBEXqueries and SAPBEXfilters. The error may have been caused by corrupt metadata in the hidden sheets. It is also possible that these are BW 2.x workbooks that were opened directly in the BEx Analyzer from SAP NetWeaver 7.0.

    System Response

    Since the metadata was not read correctly, it is possible that the query in the workbook was not upgraded correctly. The upgrade process continued, but there may be consistency issues, which you should check for by refreshing the workbook. If you are working with a BW 2.x workbook, the workbook may not be upgraded at all.


    First try refreshing the workbook in the 7.0 Analyzer to check whether the query refreshes correctly despite these errors and whether these errors can be ignored. If the query refreshes correctly, the warning can be ignored and the workbook can be saved.

    If the workbook does not refresh correctly in the 7.0 Analyzer, check whether it refreshes correctly in the 3.x Analyzer. If errors occur while refreshing the workbook in the 3.x Analyzer, the workbook is probably corrupt. You should then investigate the cause of this in the 3.x Analyzer.

    If the workbook refreshes correctly in the 3.x Analyzer, another possible cause could be that the Excel workbook or worksheet is protected. Try unprotecting the worksheet or workbook and upgrading it again in the 7.0 Analyzer.

    If the workbook was created using 2.x Analyzer, save the workbook again in the 3.x Analyzer and try opening it in the 7.0 Analyzer.

    If none of these solutions resolve the problem, there may be other compatibility issues between the 3.x and the 7.0 Analyzer. In such cases, check whether you can make adjustments manually with the 7.0 Analyzer to solve the problem.
