Quest Enterprise Reporter Report Manager Introducing the Report Manager Running and Scheduling Reports Creating and Editing Reports Troubleshooting Issues with Enterprise Reporter

Restoring a Connection to the Enterprise Reporter Server

There are a number of reasons why a Enterprise Reporter server may be down. When a console loses its connection to the server, it becomes unusable and must be restarted. All users connected to the Enterprise Reporter server are affected. You should check the following connections:

If the server has gone down and been restored since you last logged in, then the next time you connect, you will be informed that the server went down. If you are the main Enterprise Reporter administrator, this allows you to be aware that your server has had issues. Intermittent failures over time may be due to instability in your network, problems on the server’s host computer, or your SQL Server® deployment.

Restoring a Connection to the Enterprise Reporter Database

If your server has lost its connection to the database, you can still open a console and connect to the server, but functionality will be limited. You will be unable to create discoveries, run reports or modify your configuration. Ensure that the SQL Server® hosting the Enterprise Reporter database is running, and that the server can access it.

The Report Manager maintains a direct connection to the SQL Server® database, so ensure that the console’s computer can also access the SQL Server®.

Troubleshooting Connection Timeouts

As Enterprise Reporter processes your requests, constant communication with the database is required. Depending on your network configuration, your Enterprise Reporter deployment, and the power of your SQL Server® host, the solution for timeout issues may vary.

You can fix timeout issues by either increasing the timeout in Enterprise Reporter, or by investigating any systemic or deployment issues. For example, perhaps your SQL Server® where the database is hosted is underpowered, or you have located your Enterprise Reporter server physically distant from your SQL Server®.

There are the following settings for each timeout configuration:

Connection timeout
This is the amount of time given to make the initial connection to the database each time communication is needed. This is less likely to need adjustment. Timeouts are more likely due to SQL Server
® or network issues than Enterprise Reporter specific problems. However, if you continually are seeing timeout errors, try increasing this setting.

Troubleshooting Credential Change Failures

Each credential in the Credential Manager has three parts—an account name, a password and an optional description—and you can change any of them. While most changes should be processed smoothly, occasionally issues in the network environment may prevent changes from being applies. When a change fails, you need to determine the reason, and then manually make the changes.

If a report schedule fails after changing a credential, it could mean that:
