ADAPT00734334
Description:

Patch ID: 40,417,270

Reports that are scheduled to run daily may fail to run on the day that the Daylight Savings Time (DST) transition period occurs.

For example, if a report is scheduled to run during the time that the clock is moved forward (between 2:00AM and 3:00AM) of the day that DST starts, the report will not be scheduled to run that day. This problem is caused by an error in the scheduling logic for the Central Management Server (CMS).

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved.

To solve the problem, reports will run as scheduled on the day that DST starts, at the correct next run time + 1 hour.

ADAPT00735097
Description:

Patch ID: 40,815,733

Weekly and monthly recurring reports that are scheduled to run between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. run an hour late on the day which DST occurs. Each additional recurring instance runs one hour late from it's originally specified run time.

New Behavior:
If a recurring instance is scheduled such that it's next run time is between 2:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. then the instance will schedule one hour late on the day which DST occurs. The recurring instances that follow will schedule at their originally specified run time.

ADAPT00772164
Description:

Patch ID: 41,815,870

Scheduled instances that are missing the SI_SUBMITTERID property pend indefinitely. The correct behavior is for the scheduled instance to fail if it is missing the SI_SUBMITTERID property.

New Behavior:
Instances missing the SI_SUBMITTERID property will now fail once it's run time has reached.

ADAPT00911254
Description:

Patch ID: 40,855,447

Australia's new, extended Daylight Saving Times (DST) for the Australian eastern states fails to be recognized by BusinessObjects Enterprise Xl and XI Release 2. For example, when a user's time zone in InfoView is explicitly set to Australian Eastern, Central, or Tasmania the time stamp value that is displayed in InfoView for an object's instance (for example, on the History tab) may sometimes be inaccurate by an hour.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. In addition to installing this HotFix, users must also download and install the appropriate DST patches for their operating systems, Java Virtual Machine (JVM), and application servers. Users can contact their respective vendors for more information.

ADAPT00859377
Description:

Patch ID: 40,471,678

In BusinessObjects Enterprise, the timestamp value displayed for an object's instance, e.g in InfoView under an object's History tab, may fail to take into account the extensions to Daylight Saving Time (DST) regulations announced by the New Zealand Government and the trial regulations announced by the Western Australian Government. In April 2007 the New Zealand Government announced an update to the Time Act of 1974 which changes the dates of both the start and end of Daylight Saving Time (DST). Daylight Saving has been introduced in Western Australia for a three-year trial period starting December 2006. A referendum will be held in 2009 to decide whether it should become permanent.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. To enable this fix, users must also download and install the appropriate DST patches for their operating systems, Java Virtual Machine (JVM), and application servers. Users should contact their respective vendors for more information.

Patch ID: 38,512,255

When using opendocument.jsp to view documents through OLAP Intelligence, an error message appears. The error message is as follows: "The property with ID SI_FILES does not exist in the object." The cause of the problem is that the ability to query the Central Management Server using SI_NAME requires that the SI_ID be null; however, the SI_ID value is set to 0, which then prevents the query to use SI_NAME.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved.

ADAPT00545505
Description:

Description:

Patch ID: 38,466,292

After installing a recent HotFix, the Crystal Reports ActiveX viewer fails to work in custom applications deployed to Websphere 5.x environments using SSL. The ActiveX viewer is present, but it fails to display report data. The cause of the problem is that WebSphere generates a Response Header when SSL is enabled; however, Internet Explorer has a problem handling this header value. For more information, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article number 316431 at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;316431.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. The code has been changed to force the header to use a value that Internet Explorer can accept.

ADAPT00567519
Description:

Patch ID: 38,484,888

When many Web Intelligence documents are opened at once, the following error message appears: "Could not initialize Report Engine Server (Error: INF)". The error message is issued from the Web Intelligence Report Server. The problem is caused by two issues: the closeDocument function fails to be called by openDocument.jsp, which causes problems with the refresh mechanism, and, in a configuration where multiple CPUs are used, the WIReportServer cleanup thread stops working.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved for most browsers (see the Limitations section). To solve the problem, the functions closeDocument and CancelQueries are properly called to avoid refresh problems, and code has been added to WIReportServer to use a try/catch block to let the cleanup thread (the release order function in Corba) work properly.

Known Limitations:
This HotFix works for most Internet Explorer versions and service packs, except for the following: Windows 2003 SP1 Internet Explorer 6.0.3790.1830, SP1.

ADAPT00568333
Description:

Patch ID: 38,530,121

The Crystal Reports ActiveX Viewer is difficult to open; an extra mouse click on the Active X viewer icon is required. The problem is caused by an update to Microsoft Internet Explorer that has changed how ActiveX controls are loaded into web pages.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. To solve the problem, the ActiveX Viewer control has been changed to load a Javascript file. For more information, see the following Microsoft knowledge base article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/dhtml/overview/activating_activex.asp In Business Objects Enterprise XI and BusinessObjects XI Release 2, the Java applet viewer is also fixed.

Description:

Patch ID: 38,215,283

If a machine uses Internet Protocol Network Multipathing (IPMP) multi-homing and multiple network interface cards (NICs), Web Intelligence (WebI) fails to initialize. The cause of the problem is that the Central Management Server (CMS) specifies a list of client machines that are allowed to use the token to log on to the system. At logon time, the CMS references this list of client machines and examines the IP address of the client on the underlying socket connection, which is used during logon. If the client logging on doesn't appear in the list of allowed clients, the logon is rejected. This behavior is a problem when multiple network interface cards (NIC) are on the server.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. The list of allowed clients has been removed from the token.

In the Schedule Manager, when a user selects reports to have their logon information changed, the change is applied to some but not all the reports selected. The problem concerns the Schedule Manager's ability to handle database logons that are case-insensitive.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. Users must make the following modifications to ensure case-insensitive database logons are handled properly: For .NET applications, do the following: - For BusinessObjects XI R1, to modify the web.config file (C:\Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise11\Web Content \Enterprise11\WebTools\), set the parameter "scheduleManager_dbServerCaseSensitive" to FALSE. This step enables .NET Schedule Manager to handle case insensitivity. - For BusinessObjects XI R2, to modify the web.config file (C:\Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 11.5\Web Content\Enterprise115\WebTools\), set the parameter "scheduleManager_dbServerCaseSensitive" to FALSE. This step enables the .Net Schedule Manager to handle case insensitivity. For Java: - For BusinessObjects XI R1, to modify the web.xml file for Tomcat (C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Tomcat\webapps\businessobjects\enterprise11\adminlaunch\WEB-INF), set the parameter "scheduleManager_dbServerCaseSensitive" to FALSE. This step enables the Java Schedule Manager to handle case insensitivity. - For BusinessObjects XI R2, to modify the web.xml for Tomcat (C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Tomcat\webapps\businessobjects\enterprise115\adminlaunch\WEB-INF), set the parameter "scheduleManager_dbServerCaseSensitive" to FALSE. This step enables the Java Schedule Manager to handle case insensitivity. NOTE: By default, the parameter "scheduleManager_dbServerCaseSensitive" is set to TRUE.

The following error message appears: "Failed to read data from report file c:\Document..\***.rpt. Reason: Unknown Query Engine Error: File UNKNOWN.RPT." The cause of the problem is that the CMC is considering a report to be a user license; when the maximum user license count is reached, each report then added is rejected.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. Adding a report now uses the existing session when is logs on to the CMC.

When a "Count()" function is generated from Webi, an error message appears because the function fails to contain a "Group By" clause. The error message says "[IBM][CLI driver][DB2] SQL0122N A select statement with no Group by clause." This problem occurs only on systems using DB2 connectivity to OS/390. The cause of the problem is that the count function is generated by the "discrete" option, which is rejected by the DB2 to OS/390 connection.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved.

ADAPT00566876
Description:

Patch ID: 38,459,636

A report that uses 900 or more parameters displays an error message when viewed or forces the page server to shut down unexpectedly. The error is caused by a stack overflow, which is triggered by the large number of parameters.

New Behavior:
To solve the problem, a new command line switch, -JTCss, has been added for the page server to allow the stack size to be configured upon start up. For example, starting the pageserver with the command line switch changed to -JTCss 10000 will set the stack size to 10Mb. The default size of the stack is 1Mb.

Known Limitations:
Note that this change may limit scalability of the server under certain conditions. As the stack size is increased, the server can support fewer threads. The impact this behavior will have on scalability will depend on the configuration in use. Therefore, it is recommended that users carefully test performance after changing the stack size.

Under high-volume traffic loads on the Java Application Server, an OutOfMemory error message may appear, and the client application may display this error message: " Could Not Get Page Number." This problem occurs more often when the WIReportServer process (used for WebIntelligence reports processing) is under extensive use. Under those conditions, a full stack may be displayed as follows: com.bo.rebean.wi.CommunicationException: Could not get page number. at com.bo.rebean.wi.corba.XMLviaCorba.getBlobAsStream at com.bo.rebean.wi.corba.CorbaDocumentComAdapter.getBinaryContentAsStream at com.bo.rebean.wi.corba.CorbaReportComAdapter.getBinaryContentAsStream

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. To enable this fix, users must increase the value for MAX_HEAP_SIZE in the webi.properties file to accommodate the size of the Java Heap size defined in the application server: 1. Edit the webi.properties file in the WEB-INF/classes directory of the web application. If using a Tomcat deployment, the file is usually stored in ...\webapps\businessobjects\enterprise115\desktoplaunch\WEB-INF\classes. 2. Add the following line, if the line is not in the file, or comment it out and update the value as follows: MAX_HEAP_SIZE=<java_heap_size_for_app_server> The value <java_heap_size_for_app_server> represents the number in bytes and must match the value set to in the application server. For example : Use the setting MAX_HEAP_SIZE=750000000 to set the size limit to 750MB, 3. Save the file, and restart the application server.

If the dates used in a query in the Query Builder are improperly formatted, the CMS terminates unexpectedly. For example, the following query causes the CMS to terminate unexpectedly: "SELECT * FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS WHERE SI_NEXTRUNTIME BETWEEN '2003' AND '2005."

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. To solve the problem, the database subsystem libraries validate the date operands before passing the operands to the database. If the dates are invalid, the subsystem libraries try to convert them to a valid date-time operand. For example, "2003" becomes "2003 01 01 00 00 00."

Reports may not be scheduled to an unmanaged machine. The scheduled job fails, and the following error message appears: "Login error: CrystalEnterprise.DiskUnmanaged: Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer." The problem happens when the Scheduler tool has rights to the unmanaged disk but has not been granted the "allow logon locally" right on the job server machine. The Microsoft Windows function LOGON32_LOGON_INTERACTIVE is called, which requires that the "allow logon locally" right be granted to the impersonated user.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. A registry key named ImpersonationInteractive has been added. To solve the problem, the value of the key must be changed to 0. When the value is set to 0, the LOGON32_LOGON_CLEARTEXT function is called, which does not require that the impersonated user have the "allow logon locally" right. When the value is left to the default value of 1, problem remains because the LOGON32_LOGON_INTERACTIVE function is called.

Known Limitations:
The registry key is added automatically when scheduling to an unmanaged disk location for the first time after this HotFix is applied. After changing the registry key value, the Crystal Report Job Server must be restarted before the change will take effect.

Patch ID: 37,794,087

The first logon attempt fails when the Java InfoView and the @clustername is used. The Java SDK does not support logon attempts with the @clustername on the first logon attempt. The SDK requires a logon to Central Management Server (CMS) first to retrieve the cluster members; only then can subsequent logon attempts with the @clustername succeed.

New Behavior:
Changes have been made to InfoView to process all logon attempts with @clustername. The change uses a variable in the web.xml or, alternatively, a file named "clusters.properties." Each file contains a list of clusters and the servers for each cluster to be used. Upon logon, Infoview checks to see if the specified CMS name matches one of the values that belong to the clusters. InfoView then attempts to log on to the servers that are provided for that cluster value. How to use the web.xml method: cms.clusters: this file consists of a comma-separated list of cluster names. Note the following: - Each cluster in the above list requires its own parameter: - param-name = cms.clusters.<clustername> (without the @) - param-value = comma separated list of cms servers Note: Each param-name value must match case with the corresponding value in the CMS.clusters. EXAMPLE: <context-param> <param-name>cms.clusters</param-name> <param-value>@samplecluster, @samplecluster2, @samplecluster3</param-value> </context-param> <context-param> <param-name>cms.clusters.samplecluster</param-name> <param-value>cmsone:6400, cmstwo:6400</param-value> </context-param> <context-param> <param-name>cms.clusters.samplecluster2</param-name> <param-value>cms3, cms4, cms5</param-value> </context-param> <context-param> <param-name>cms.clusters.samplecluster3</param-name> <param-value>aps05</param-value> </context-param>

How to use the clusters.properties method: Parameters may be added to a file named "clusters.properties," which must be placed in the WEB-INF/classes directory.

BEXIWIN_MHF_200601

Documents are opened in the default HTML format when the sOutputFormat parameter is used in an OpenDocument request. The cause of the problem is that support for the sOutputFormat parameter is unavailable.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. To solve the problem, the sOutputFormat parameter is supported. The supported values are as follows: "sOutputFormat=P" for pdf and "sOutputFormat=H" for html. Those parameters are supported for both .NET and Java systems. For Java systems, users can also specify "sViewer=interactive" for the interactive HTML viewer or "sViewer=html" for the regular HTML viewer.

Known Limitations:
The parameters sViewer and sOutputFormat cannot be used together. sViewer value will supersede the sOutputFormat value. Support for sOutputFormat parameter is limited to PDF and HTML. Support for Excel and MS Word are unavailable.

A second Crystal Management Server (CMS) cannot be started when auditing is enabled. This problem happens when the two Crystal Management Servers (CMS) are on separate machines. This problem happens even when the DSN on each machine, which connects to the audit database, share the same name and description. The cause of the problem is that the CE demands that the audit database connection string be identical for each CMS. Because the audit database connection string is unique for each CMS, the second CMS cannot be started.

New Behavior:
To solve this problem, CE compares only the DSN (name and description), UID, and PWD fields of the audit db connection string.

Known Limitations:
In some scenarios, it is not possible to share the same connection string between each CMS, because of network differences. In such a scenario, the second CMS will not start.

When users view reports on demand or schedule reports that are based on a Sybase- stored procedure, using an ODBC custom database logon in the CMC, the stored procedure runs more than once.

New Behavior:
To fix this problem, users must install this Hot Fix patch, and then do the following: 1) Ensure the registry key "VerifyStoredProceduresOnSetLocation" is set to No. For CE9, the registry key is in the following directory: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Crystal Decisions\9.0\Crystal Reports\DatabaseOptions\ For CE10, the registry key is in the following directory: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Crystal Decisions\10.0\Crystal Reports\DatabaseOptions\ 2) Add the command "procreportoptions __noverifydatabase" in the command line of the Pageserver and Jobserver. Note: the command "procreportoptions __noverifydatabase" has two underscores.

When users view a report in .NET InfoView and export it to CSV format, the following error message appears: "The parameters is incorrect (Error: INF -2146823266)." The problem is caused by reference counting bugs when the COM objects that are distributed have C++ backpointers to the DocumentInstance object. If the DocumentInstance object is released before the other COM objects, the error message appears.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. To solve the problem, a "GC.KeepAlive(DocumentInstance)" at the bottom of each ASPX page has been added. This prevents the clean-up function from removing the DocumentInstance before all COM objects have been distributed.

Single sign-on authentication is unable to authenticate users who view reports in BusinessObjects Enterprise that are based off a secured database.

New Behavior:
A new feature lets users use single sign-on to view reports in BusinessObjects Enterprise that are based off a secured database. To activate the new feature, users must do the following: 1. In the Central Configuration Manager, open Crystal Reports Cache Server. 2. On the Command textbox, add the switch -useSecondarySSO before -restart. 3. Click Apply, and then click OK. 4. Go to \Program Files\Common Files\Business Objects\3.0\java\, and open CRConfig.xml in a text editor. 5. In the CRConfig.xml file, add <UseDBUSERInsteadOfSSO/> immediately before the last line. 6. Save CRConfig.xml, and then close the editor. 7. Restart all services. For each report where single sign-on viewing and scheduling is preferred, the administrator must manually enable the single-sign on option. Log on to the Central Management Console and, in the Database properties, enable the Use SSO context for database logon option. For reports that use Business Views, the Single Sign-On option is available from the Data Connections settings used by the Business Views. To enable this option, administrators must open the Business View Manager, and set the option Use Single Sign On when viewing to True for the Data Connections. For reports that use Universes, the administrator or Universe designer can enable the new single-sign on feature by modifying the Universe connection: 1. Open the Designer. 2. On the Tools menu, click Connections. 3. Edit the connection. 4. For the User name, enter @Variable(DBUSER). 5. For the Password, enter @Variable(DBPASS). Enterprise users who want to use the new feature must have their secondary credential properties set, using a sample script provided by Business Objects named SetSecondaryCredential.jsp. The script is in the following directory: \Program Files\Common Files\Business Objects\3.0\java\lib\. To set secondary credential properties in the SetSecondaryCredential.jsp script: 1. In the first section of the code, read the comments about how to hard code information about the Enterprise system. Note: the "String credUser" variable refers to the Enterprise users for whom you want to add the DBUSER/DBPASS information. Those users must exist on the system before you run the JSP script. 3. In the line "firstPropBag.add("SI_VALUE", "dummyPassword", Property.ALL);", update "dummyPassword" with the appropriate DBPASS. 4. In the line "secondPropBag.add("SI_VALUE", "dummyUser", Property.ALL);", update "dummyUser" with the appropriate DBUSER. 5. Save the changes you've made to SetSecondaryCredential.jsp. 6. Close the editor, and then execute the JSP script.

Known Limitations:

BEXIWIN_MHF_200512
A Crystal report that is based on a Universe will be unable to honor the Single Sign-On feature if the Universe's connection is set up with @Variable('DBUSER')/ @Variable('DBPASS'). As a result, the report designer will prompt users for their logon information. Once the report is published to Enterprise, on-demand viewing works with the SSO option enabled; however, scheduling works only when the User and Password fields are set inside the Central Management Console. This behavior is by design.

Patch ID: 37,887,977

To change the database logon information of a report in the CMC, users must be granted the specific right "Schedule to Destination." For example, users can have four rights granted to them for a Crystal Report object: * View objects * Edit objects * Schedule the Document to Run * Schedule to Destinations In this scenario, if the "Schedule to Destinations" right is removed, users lose their ability to change the database logon information.

New Behavior:
Only the "View Object" and "Edit Object" rights are required for a user or group to edit the database logon.

The ampersand character ("&") will sever parameter prompt values that use openDocument.jsp. For example, if a Crystal Report has a parameter field in the report header and openDocument.jsp passes the string "Ben&Jerry" as the parameter prompt value, the report will only display "Ben."

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. Note that the ampersand character must be URL encoded to %26 in the URL. For example, the following is a valid URL string to successfully pass the ampersand character to the report: openDocument.jsp?iDocID=1234&lsSStringParameter=Ben%26Jerry

Known Limitations:
If using the Tomcat Application Server that ships with Business Objects, users must redeploy desktop.war. The version of Tomcat that ships with BOE deploys war files automatically when a directory is renamed or removed. To redeploy the desktop.war, users can rename or remove the following directory: bobje/tomcat/webapps/businessobjects/enterprise11/desktoplaunch The desktop.war file will be redeployed on the next restart of Tomcat. It is recommended to backup all user-modified files before deleting the directory.

Under certain security combinations, users with rights to log on to InfoView are unable to log on to the Java InfoView. With the same security combinations, users can log on successfully to the .NET infoview. One security combination known to cause the error is when the "Everyone" group is defined to have "No Access" at the "Top Level Folder" object while individual users have been explicitly granted the right to log on to InfoView. The cause of the problem is that, although users were logged on successfully, the right calculations fail when rights to Web Intelligence objects are checked.

New Behavior:
To solve the problem, the java component that handles Web Intelligence objects has been updated accordingly. Note: Users can define "Top Level Folder" rights in the CMC under Home > Settings > Rights. Rights to InfoView can be defined under Home > BusinessObjects Enterprise Applications > InfoView Rights.

When BusinessObjects Enterprise 11 Java InfoView runs on a machine that uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL), the Java Report Panel stops responding when the message "Creating Session" appears, and then a WIJ 20002 error appears. When the connection info is passed to the Java Report Panel applet, the request scheme is hardcoded with and "http" address. Therefore, when InfoView is accessed with an "https" address, the applet times out when it tries to communicate with the web server.

New Behavior:
To solve the problem, the scheme from the request URL is used instead of the hardcoded value.

In a Web Intelligence document that is viewed in .NET InfoView, if users click a hyperlink to a subreport, and then click the Next button on the main report, the following error message appears: "An error occurred while communicating with the server (Error: INF -2146823266)." The problem is caused by the InfoView Web Intelligence plug-in view code, which prematurely closes the last viewed Web Intelligence document and causes the error message to appear. When the Next button is clicked, the correct behavior is to close the subreport and keep the main Web Intelligence document open.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. Code has been added to check whether the current request uses the same InfoView entry store. This solution works because subreports are displayed through an Opendoc request, while reports are displayed through InvoView requests. InfoView and Opendoc use different InfoView entry store names.

Users can create a dashboard even when the "Create Dashboards" right is explicitly denied in the Central Management Console. The cause of the problem is that, when the "Create Dashboards" right is denied from the Central Management Console (CMC), only the option for "Single Dashboard" is disabled and the option for "My Infoview" is left enabled for users to select.

New Behavior:
To correct this problem, the Save As button is disabled for "My InfoView" so that users are only able to save dashboards to a default directory, which is their personal Favorite folders.

If a user tries to create a new webi report when the option Customize Authentication is set on one Universe folder, a Java.lang.NullPointerException occurs. The cause of the problem is that the code that generates the path information for Universe does not account for the case where the Universe's parent folder is not visible to the user. In that case, the path field is improperly formed and causes the error.

New Behavior:
To solve the problem, the path field is left blank if the parent folder isn't visible to the user.

When users click a link to view a schedule instance of a report, from an email that has been automatically sent to them from BusinessOjects Enterprise, a "404" error message appears. This problem only occurs when IBM WebSphere application server is used. The cause of the problem is that repeated logon prompts are generated, which lead to the display of the error message. The cause of the repeated logon prompts is that LogonAction invalidates the session prior to logon; however, WebSphere validates session variables no further than the request scope.

New Behavior:
To solve the problem, LogonAction no longer invalidates the session if the request comes from a referrer (openDocument, in this scenario).

Reports that are scheduled to SMTP may show incomplete information in the date headers on non-English operating systems or non-English versions of Crystal Enterprise. The cause of the problem is that the SMTP RFC is set to accept English three-letter short month strings (Jan, Feb, Mar, and so on). The format function uses the current locale to retrieve the short month string, which in this case will in a language other than English. The non-standard date headers that are retrieved with non-English deployments of CE fail to be processed.

New Behavior:
The issue has been fixed by inserting the English short month string into the date header.

ADAPT00190903
Description:

Patch ID: 37,167,226

When objects are deleted from the Crystal Management Console (CMC), the deleted objects still appear in the repository folders.

New Behavior:
The Crystal Input File Repository Server and Crystal Output File Repository Server deletes objects to accurately indicate when objects have been deleted from the folder structure. To enable this behavior, users must disable the Job Server and add the command [-prune] to the command line of the Repository Server (Input or Output) that is set to delete the empty folders, and then restart the server. The server shuts down automatically when the empty folders are deleted. You can add [-trace] to obtain a log file for the number of folders visited and the number of objects deleted. Remove [-prune trace] once the files are deleted.

Known Limitations:
If a user deletes all report instances from the CMC, the system deletes the following folder: "Install Directory\FileStore\Output." If a user deletes all objects from the CMC, the system deletes the following folder: "Install Directory\FileStore\Input." If either of those folders is deleted, the file repository servers are inoperable because the root folder ("Input" or "Output") is absent. To start the servers, users must recreate Input/Output folders.

When a Crystal Management Server (CMS) in a clustered environment is shut down or started, extra recurring instances of a job are created.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved. The cause of the problem is that two jobservers run the same job simultaneously when the CMS is shut down or started. To solve this problem, before the job is permitted to run on the jobserver, the scheduler determines whether the job belongs to the instance of the CMS to which the job is attached. If the job does not belong to that instance of the CMS, the scheduler releases it for pick up by the correct instance of the CMS at the next scheduler loop.

When Single Sign-On(SSO) is enabled on Windows AD or Windows NT, users are prompted with a username and password when they launch InfoView.

New Behavior:
To resolve this problem, the method of authentication for SSO has been redifined. After users apply this Hot Fix patch, they must modify the web.config file that is located in the following directory: \Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 11\Web Content\Enterprise11\InfoView. Within the web.config file, users must add commands to the WebDesktopSettings section: <WebDesktopSettings> <add key="cmsDefault" value="CMSMachineName" /> <add key="ssoEnabled" value="true" /> <add key="authenticationDefault" value="secXXXXXXX" /> <!-- Default Authentication progID (secEnterprise, secLDAP, secWindowsNT, secWinAD) --> </WebDesktopSettings> And add commands to the system.web section: <system.web> <identity impersonate="true" /> <authentication mode="Windows" /> </system.web>

Known Limitations:
The Central Management Console(CMC) is not supported by SSO. In place of SSO, use a third-party tool, such as SiteMinder.

The default DateTime parameter with the time of 12:00:00AM or 12:00:00PM is not displayed in the parameter prompt drop-down list. The cause of the problem is that the Enterprise reporting object model is unable to process the time of 00:00:00 (12:00:00 is a variant of 00:00:00). Because 12:00:00 fails to be correctly interpreted, it is not displayed.

Description:

Patch ID: 36,866,257

In a clustered Crystal Enterprise environment, sometimes extra recurring jobs are introduced. This problem occurs when Crystal Management Servers (CMS) are added or removed while one job server is in operation.

New Behavior:
The order of operations has been changed so that all of the scheduler threads are completely shut down before they terminate and, therefore, asserts are no longer created. To further explain the source of the problem: when a Crystal Management Server is shut down in a clustered environment, the scheduler subsystem is susceptible to race conditions, potentially leading to malformed instance objects and extra recurring instances. The reason for those consequences is that CMS's divide jobs evenly between themselves, and it is possible that the ID of one Object becomes processed again by the second CMS. So, the next time a CMS looks at the issue an assert is created to say that the object appears to be incorrect.

The Instance Manager has been changed to retrieve 20 pages of 100 instances per page at a time. With smaller but more frequent queries, CPU use is reduced, and results are displayed more quickly.

When a user browses reports in InfoView, the user's session continues to be active after it has timed out. The problem is caused by the way that session tokens operate. By default, when a session expires the user session is automatically restarted by logging in with the information in the previous token.

New Behavior:
The default functionality of tokens can be changed to summon the logon prompt when the session has expired. .NET servers Set logonTokenEnabled to false in the file \Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 11\Web Content\Enterprise11\InfoView\web.config in the WebDesktopSettings block. For example: <!-- Set to false to disable logon with token when session times out --> <add key="logonTokenEnabled" value="false"/> JAVA servers Modify the web.xml under the Tomcat directory to set logontoken.enabled to false. For example: <!-- Set to false to disable logon with token. --> <context-param> <param-name>logontoken.enabled</param-name> <param-value>false</param-value> </context-param>

Known Limitations:
A re-deployment may be required. The .java and .xml files are put into the default deployment area. Those files must be copied to the associated location in the customer application deployment area.

Reports that are scheduled to a printer with the Java SDK fail to print, and the following error message appears: "The start page cannot be greater than the stop page." This problem occurs if the IReportPrinterOptions.setToPage method is called with a print range argument that is greater than 32767, or when the method is not called at all.

New Behavior:
Reports can now be successfully scheduled to a printer when the end of the print range is greater than 32767. If the setToPage method is not called, the default value allows the report to be successfully scheduled.

When URL reporting is used to access reports, users are presented with the logon form rather than the report, even though Single sign on (SSO) has been enabled. For example, the URL http://servername/businessobjects/viewrpt.cwr? init=connect&id=xxx&apsuser=&apspassword=&apsauthtype=secWindowsNT fails to display the report, and instead presents the logon form. The cause of the problem is that the Web.config file at C:\Program Files\Common Files\BusinessObjects\3.0\crystalreportviewers11 is incorrectly configured. Once that file is properly set up, the URL reporting works.

New Behavior:
This problem is resolved once you complete these steps: Install the latest HotFix named commonXIwin_en.zip, and then modify the web.config file in C:\Program Files\Common Files\BusinessObjects\3.0\crystalreportviewers11, but do not add lines that already exist in your web.config file: 1. Add the following lines and replace "cmsMachineName" with your actual machine name: <configuration> <-- This line should already be present

An error message appears when users view a report that is set to a secondary logon through the opendoc method. The error message is as follows: "HTTP Status 404 - /viewers/car/seclogonform.jsp." The cause of the problem is that opendoc requires the file seclogonform.jsp, which is stored in a directory that opendoc fails to search.

New Behavior:
To resolve the problem, the file seclogonform.jsp has been added to the correct location.

When reports are migrated from Crystal Enterprise 8.5, the Username and Password details are stripped by the Update Objects action. The affected reports are based on Dictionary or Query Files. The "UpdateInfoObject" function removes logon and password information if the property SI_SERVER name for the report and the migrating infoObject doesn't match, which is the case for reports that are based on Dictionary or Query Files.

A dialog box error message appears at the list of values (LOV) prompt when users refresh a LOV report from the Crystal Reports Designer or from any Crystal Report Viewer. The error message, which reads List of values error: failed to get values. [Cause of error: InitializationEx Exception [Error message]: Null], occurs when the "View objects" right to the Top Level folder in Crystal Enterprise is restricted for users in the Everyone group. The cause of the problem is that, the first time the Java SDK creates an InfoStore service, appropriate access to certain plugins demands the aggregation of root folder rights.

New Behavior:
This issue is resolved.

Known Limitations:
Users must add the JAR files that are fixed with the Hot Fix to the WAR files (admin.war, desktop.war, webcompadapter.war and jsfadmin.war, or customised versions of those files). Users must then re-deploy the WAR files to the Web Application Server(s).

Complex reports may fail to publish to Crystal Enterprise through the Publishing Wizard or an SDK Application. The cause of the problem is that an internal token that is generated during the publishing process allows only 10 logons to the CMS. Complex reports may exceed that limit and cause a failure.

New Behavior:
To solve the problem, the logon restriction on the internal token has been removed.

Dates in WEBI reports appear in mm/dd/yy format when English (United Kingdom) locale is selected on the InfoView General Preferences dialog box. The cause of the problem is that InfoView passes WEBI the language but not the full locale. When the English locale is selected, WEBI applies the default format mm/dd/yy format to dates.

When the openDocument URL function is used to view a report, the system contains multiple documents that use the same name, and the "sPath" parameter value is used, the following error message appears: "The page you requested is not found." The cause of the problem is that the "sPath" parameter value fails to be properly retrieved when the "sType" and "sKind" parameter is not specified in the openDocument URL function.

New Behavior:
The correct "sPath" value is parsed and retrieved. Also, a modification has been made to the "handleerror_js" page to set a path to the correct error page when necessary.

URLs with only one value in an "lsM" parameter return no data (for example, &lsMCity=[Paris]) because the brackets in the URL fail to be removed. The cause of the problem is that the entire string that comes after the equals "=" sign is used as the parameter list and not removed, which results in an unmatched value.

If a failure occurs when multiple groups are added to the Windows AD Authentication tab within the CMC, user group objects are created but the corresponding SIDs fail to be entered into the SI_MAPPED_GROUPS property of the system object named secWindAD.

New Behavior:
A change has been made to the CMC so that, if a failure occurs when groups are mapped, the system will revert any changes that have been made during that update. The result is that the system remains in the previous state before it attempts to import the new groups into the system. Any groups that have previously been mapped will persist. This issue has been known to occur with LDAP and WindowsNT authentication, but this HotFix corrects the problem.

Recurring reports that are based on file events will drop the event and run only on the schedule. The cause of the problem is that , if a recurring job is forced to retry because an error occurs for the job that is running on the jobserver, the event dependency information will be lost. This means that all subsequent instances that are created from this recurrence contain no event dependency information, and will therefore not depend on any events.

New Behavior:
A new ScheduleFlag is added to mark a job as "retried." When a job is retried for any reason, this flag is set to true. The event dependency information will still exist, but it will be ignored for this job. When the next instance is created from the recurrence, the flag is reset to false.
