2003568 - After UMT migration some crystal report instances fail with an error


After migrating Crystal Reports with instances from BOE XI3.1 SP5 to a BI4 SP06 environment, some Crystal Reports instances seem fail with an error.

  • Crystal Reports instances fail with " The viewer could not process an event. Error in File REPORTNAME:  Encapsulating page failed. [] ---- Error code:0 [CRWEB00000119] " error
  • While report can be opened and refreshed, instances when opening produce the error.
  • The issue is seen with reports migrated using " live to live " as well as " biar to live " migration options.
  • We notice that for some of the reports, their instances seem to “refresh on open“ upon viewing thereby causing the error because the server does not have the same database connection.
  • The instances are not configured for and hence hence not supposed to refresh on open. 
  • As some of crystal reports use sub-reports, we applied kbase 1823637 which suggests to uncheck sub-reports option "re-import on open".  But that does not resolve the.
