Cause

Incorrect value for 'Report Server'.

Example:

In one real-life example, the server had been upgraded from Controller 10.2.1 to 10.3.1. As part of this, the server was changed from using the old 'runtime' (built-in) version of Cognos BI 10.2.2, to using the new Cognos Analytics (CA) 11 (which is bundled with Controller.

  • However, the values of the report server were incorrectly using the old Cognos BI values (http://<servername>/ibmcognos/cgi-bin/cognos.cgi):

Resolving The Problem

Correct the settings for 'Report Server'.

Steps:

1. Launch Controller Configuration

2. Open section 'Report Server'

3. Enter the correct values.

Example: Cognos Analytics (CA) 11.0.7: http://<servername>:9300/bi/v1/disp


4. Save changes

5. Test.
