Not that I am aware of, have created several in a day before, no issues.

Perhaps its a back end issue or perhaps just the internet ??

No there is definitely no limit, the system must have had a hiccup...

There's an obvious question here that no one has asked . . .

. . . how the heck many did you open before you got this, that you thought you might have opened too many???

That has happened to me quite a bit over that last 10 months or so. If I had to put a number to it, I would guess 25% of the time. I opened an internal case to look into it, but at the time we were unable to reproduce it.

I've just adapted to it. If I get a failure like this, I just call up and open the case over the phone ... like the good old days.

I've never had an issue updating a case, just opening it.

Yeah John, I just saw this and that was, actually, my first thought... Things aren't so difficult that may case need to be opened... There are so many answers out there before taking it to 'The Next Level' of IRL... Don't ya think?

Doug,

Two questions:

  • Please explain this sentence. I don't understand:
    quote:
    Things aren't so difficult that may case need to be opened...

  • What does 'IRL' mean?


Personally, I would rather figure it out on my own, than wait for a couple of days for support to respond. However, IBI has made their errors so vague now that it is next to impossible to debug anything without opening a case.

How would you tackle this error?

Reporting Server Error
Reporting Server Error Error:Server console error.

I found a couple of instances of this error on the techsupport site. One solution was to re-boot the machine where the reporting server was running. Stopping and starting the server did not resolve it.

From Hallway: Please explain this sentence. I don't understand:
Question: "Things aren't so difficult that may case need to be opened..."
Reply, rephrased: "Things aren't so difficult that that many cases need to be opened..."

Question: "What does 'IRL' mean?"
Reply: In Real Life... Really: "Info Response Live" ~ But, you knew that, Right?

Reporting Server Error
Reporting Server Error Error:Server console error.

I'd start off with my colleagues and check here at Focal Point... Then onto IRL...

And then the response will be "Open a case" I'm just saving some steps Wink

I think that I found out what the issue is. If you add an additional contact when creating the ticket, I get the error. When just creating a ticket and the adding another post to include my manager's email, it doesn't seem to happen. [IBI Work Around #9,578,123]
