I have a new user that connects to SAP Crystal Reports XI via remote desktop.  Crystal opens fine for him, but F5 and "Refresh Report Data" are unresponsive with no error displayed.  Save data with report is unchecked.  I can run the same reports with no issues.  
He is able to successfully refresh and run reports he has created, but nothing previously written.  I did have him open an older report and hit "verify database", but that had no effect either.
Is it possible that this is related the remote desktop connection rather than a setting or problem with Crystal?

Removing Business Objects from SAP and still Using Crystal Reports..

I have read several threads and they really don't make sense to me

Will I still be able to go into BEx Query Designer and create queries and then report off of these queries in Crystal?
Will these queries look any different in Crystal than they do know.. Fields etx…?
Will I be able to publish these Crystal Reports that are designed off of these BEx Queries and publish via Email with SAP Managed security?

Loaded questions but I need more "Layman" answers.. Please help if possible
Using SAP IDT to connect to multiple servers.  Its seem like the connection to the one Sybase 16 database keeps failing sporadically.  The error  "[Data Federator Driver] Cannot reach server. Reason:  attempt to establish connection  Connection refused: connect (local port 51490 to address... ).  The error as I said is sporadic.

I'm adding a post I found online that is identical to the issue i'm having although it was posted June of 2018, and I believe we're SQL 2016 and i'm trying to hit Sybase 16.  I'm trying to gather information to take to my Business Objects admin there at work.

SAP Crystal Reports.

I have a table with 5 columns in the table, which has a Left Outer Join to display the correct data, etc. However I need to doing something special on this report I am building for our Production floor.

The table is called 'UPC' however in the 'UPC' table the system/software keeps both the Carton Label and the UPC for a particular product. The issue is that even though they are both being kept in there, they are not in the same order.

Example would be for Product #123, UPC maybe the second inserted record in the DB and the Carton label would be the first but for Product #456, it would be visa-versa, etc. So who ever entered in the data, or it could be just the system itself, didn't put it in the same order (1. UPC 2.) Carton Label), etc. So on this Crystal Reports, I would like to build two (maybe two) 'formula' where it would it see that the # starts a '1' then it is a Carton Label and put it in the Carton Label area and if it starts with a '0', it would be a UPC, etc.

Of the top of my head, it would be 1 forumula but with both math formulas in there used twice? I'm not sure, but if someone could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.
Unable to  sum a number of hours per month in a business object report. see document attached.  I am getting several rows per month

  • IBM Power9/PowerVM LPARs
  • Intel x86_64/vSphere 6.7 VMs (using EFI)
  • SuSE Manager (SUMA) 3.2
  • SLES 15

I'm attempting to create a build infrastructure for both PPC LPARs and x86 VMs using a single SUMA.

By following the SuSE Documentation for Deploying SLES on Power, I am able to build SLES 15 on Power9/PowerVM LPARs.

My problem now is getting the same infrastructure to also build SLES 15 on x86_64/vSphere VMs.

I am able to build SLES 15 on the VMs using the ISOs - so there is nothing intrinsically wrong with the VMware environment. I also was able to produce an AutoYaST profile from an install.

The DHCP server on SUMA correctly identifies the VMs and assigns an IP address from the proper range, and also properly directs the VM to load the grub.efi file. Watching via WireShark, I see the VM successfully transfer the file using TFTP.

And then nothing happens.....

If I boot the VM into the boot selection screen and manually initiate the PXE boot via a network interface, it gets the file and cycles back to the boot selection screen. Lather, rinse, repeat. I never get a GRUB menu, the installer never starts, nothing.

Looking at the docs I linked above, there is some custom GRUB configuration and a special Cobbler …

Hi - I am setting up a SAP HANA environment based on VMware 6.5 using RHEL 7.5 VMs.

One of my VMs has a number of drives (100GB OS drive / 32GB Swap / 50GB Binaries / 32GB Shared Data / 750GB DB / 750GB Logs), 48vCPU, and 768GB RAM and resides in a number of different Datastores.

My OS and Swap files share the same disk and datastore.

When I boot my RHEL VM, it tries to create the Swap space to match the amount of RAM = 768GB which instantly fills my storage.

I want 32GB configured for Swap space.

Am I missing the obvious? Is the sudden grabbing of disk space to match the amount of RAM expected behaviour?

Any help or guidance much appreciated

I had this question after viewing Append all database values in Parameter not bringing in all data..

I have been trying to append values for site (customer site names) and it is bringing in (on estimate) the first 1000 sites in the database.  If I create an "ALL" selection and run the report it does bring in all sites.  Basically when appending I can see up to values beginning with 'H', but running "ALL" bring up to 'Z'.

It is a standard parameter
Crystal report version is SAP Crystal Reports 2016 Support Pack 5 Version
I am currently in Evaluation to see if we can make use of the system before purchasing!  Not sure if this has an effect.

I have so far attempted:
Creating the parameter in a fresh report but same result
Setting the parameter to dynamic has the same limited number of selections
I have gone into registry and created a new key - LOV, with the string MaxRowsetRecords and set as 1000000.

I have come to the end of any other solutions?

Any help is much appreciated!
