Crystal Server Report Instances
Posted on 2012-12-29
Hello experts -
I am looking for an easy way (famous last words, I know) to skip daily instances in Crystal Server 2008. We have over 1,600 daily recurring instances and two nights ago a tech had to stop the CMS because a Crystal report locked all the database tables. I have restarted the CMS, but now all the instances are running in chronological order, starting where it left off two nights ago.
I would like to just stop all the pending instances for all recurring reports and have them start up fresh tonight but I don't see any way to do that easily. I have tried to search the instance manager for pending reports but they are not listed as pending until they are queued up to run. If I delete all the recurring instances then I will need to re-create all 1,600 recurring instances all over again.
Am I missing something?
