Description: Reports failing with error: 'Owning user does not have EXECUTE_JOB permission'
Symptoms: When running reports from the GUI the reporting jobs fail and when you look at the log you see the message:
'Owning user does not have EXECUTE_JOB permission'
This is because the user has deleted the "default" user in NetVault. This problem can be resolved by stopping the NetVault services and then going to the NetVault\db folder and renaming the 'users.bin' file and then restarting NetVault services. This will create a new users.bin file with the default and admin users. You cannot recreate the default user in access control as it will not have the correct UID. Note all other users previously created will be deleted when creating the new users.bin file.
The reporting jobs will now run as designed.
