Is there a plugin available and if yes where can i download it from?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Answered my own question.  Managed to upgrade to 5.0 following this process, but follow these instructions with care...
    1.  Stop all CMS services in Config Manager.
    2. Go to Add/Remove programs and click "change" for Crystal Reports Server XI.  Click on "Modify" then change the entry for MySQL4.1.13a to "Entire Feature will be unavailable" (from Enterprise -> Server Components -> Servers - > Central Management Server).  This will remove the existing mySQL version and any data/license key information/customisation, so be wary.
    3. Install the desired version of mySQL.
    4. Use the MySql command line to create a new database - "create DATABASE BOE115;"
    5. In the Central Config Manager, select the CMS and display its properties.  Select the Dependencies tab and remove the old version of mySQL and add the new version.  Click on the Config tab, then Select Datasource.  Select mySQL driver, then complete the details for the newly created database.  Once complete it will still produce an error, at which point you need to select the options to Re-create the Current Datasource.
    6. Once the datasource is sucessfully recreated, restart the Crystal service in the Config Manager.
    7. Open the Config tool, and add your license key. Then Re-Enable all the servers within the Servers page.
    8.  Any other customisation or preferences would need to be re-applied.
    This worked for me, but obviously take care as your existing mySQL database will be completely removed during the process.

  • Server Specs for crystal reports server

    Hi,
    I am a prospect Crystal Reports Server customer. I am looking to find out Server Specs for a typical 10 CAL Crystal Reports Server deployment. The information for minimum spec seems to be widely available but not for a Spec for good performance.
    Thanks in Advance

    My recommendation is to work with an SAP pre-sales consultant who will be able to provide "truer to life" guidelines on RAS sizing.  Generally, you're looking to accommodate ~ 30-60 concurrent report events on a single RAS CPU.
    Of course, report size (data stored within in, # pages, etc) all get factored into estimating memory requirements and goes back to making use of a pre-sales consultant for this purpose.  Additional factors include deploying a multi-RAS configuration and other layouts to optimize your needs.  They definitely have what you need - it's a matter of reaching out to them.
    Good luck.

  • Cold Standby Server for Crystal Reports Server...

    Hi there,
    We have the confirmation from Hong Kong SAP that Crystal Reports Server 2008 does not come with any clustering feature as Business Objects Enterprise does. We are to set up a cold standby server for the production server for high availability. Below is our procedures to work it out:
    1) we set up two machines for CRS 2008 with the same licence key and identical hardware; otherwise we clone the production machine to an identical hardware for a cold standby machine
    2) we are using our Oracle instance (same instance for both the production and the standby one) for CRS 2008 repository; we bring the production sever offline and perform the standby server installation of CRS 2008 without resetting the repository Oracle database
    3) we are to use a SAN LUN for storing the reports produced by CRS 2008
    Once the production server does not work properly due to any hardware problem, we switch it off manually and turn on the standby machine and the Crystal Reports service should resume with no repository problem (all the settings) and no loss of printed reports. We would be grateful if you could confirm the feasibility of these procedures. Thanks a lot.
    Regards,
    Jason FU

    Correct, CRS is for a single machine use only, that why it is not as expensive as the full BOE. Talk to Sales to upgrade.

  • TruncateClippedFieldStrings for Crystal Reports Server 2008?

    When we were running Crystal Reports XI, we had to add the registry key "TruncateClippedFieldStrings" on our server, because text fields on Crystal Reports were overlapping rather than truncating.  Now that we are on Crystal Reports Server 2008, we are having the same problem.  Does anyone know if this same fix applies to Crystal Reports Server 2008, and if so, do I also have to change the Crystal Reports Page Server (which I don't see in 2008) and Crystal Reports Report Application Server?
    Thanks,
    jeff

    Hi,
         Yes, it is there. Just need to click on the right link. Try this
    Support Portal -> Software Downloads -> BusinessObjects Downloads -> Support Packages and Patches-> C -> Crystal Reoprts Server 2008 V1.....
         Yes, this is very tedious but I just checked and can confirmed SP3 is there.

  • Active Directory 2008 and Crystal Reporting

    Hello,
    My company is planning to upgrade to Active Directory 2008 R2. But before we do so, we must understand how our servers & applications interact/work with Active Directory 2008 R2. Could you please answer the following questions in regards to your application Crystal Reporting (version 10):
    1.     How does Crystal Reporting interact with Active Directory (AD)?
    2.     Is there a specific domain controller hardcoded with Crystal Reporting ?
    3.     Does Crystal Reporting support Active Directory 2008 R2?
    Your assistance and timely response with this matter is very much appreciated. Thank you.
    - Peter

    Hi Peter,
    Crystal Reports is a standalone install on the local Work Station. AD won't affect it. Unless there is some info you are telling us about how you access CR?
    Thank you

  • New to Crystal Reports Server - Wondering if this is right product for me

    Good Day! This is my first time at the forums and I hope this is the right place to post my query.
    I have just recently downloaded the free trial software for Crystal Reports Server. I was directed to this software from a group of people on another forum.
    Here is my situation:
    I am currently an administrator for my companies various Service Level Agreement reports. I create the reports in Crystal Reports 9.0 and I connect using an ODBC driver to a DB2 database for a piece of software called HP OpenView ServiceCenter (Peregrine). The Peregrine software comes bundled with an older application called ReportCenter. In this software, I put all the .rpt files into one .ini file. ReportCenter then allows me to schedule the time and the date my various .rpt reports will run. For example, we have a daily report I schedule to run every night at 11:00 PM. At 11:00 PM, the software will then run the report and then export it to a file format of my choice (such as PDF or EXCEL).
    I was told from another forum that the Crystal Reports Server should allow me to perform the same functionality. Does anyone use the software in this manner?

    In addition to Srinivas' excellent replies,  it is also noteworthy that the cr server product line also has several SDK's for developing your own customized applications.  Quite a few custtomers have impllemented their own customized pages to schedule, view and export reports as well as for administration of the server(s) itself.
    I would like to suggest that you look more into a newer version of the product such as CR Server XIR2 or CR Server 2008.

  • Crystal Report Server XI R2 SP2 for Linux??

    CA Forum: Upgrading and Licensing
    HelloTrying to get Crystal Report Server XI R2 on Linux working, I have downloaded the latest eval version that I could find aka "crsxir2linuxdisc1.tar.gz" and  "crsxir2linuxdisc2.tar.gz" and plugged in the XI R2 Eval Code.In theory I should be able to use my Crystal XI license code to license R2... but the Server does not accept the XI license code.Is it just me or is Crystal Server Patching REALLY confusing or what.... There doesn't seem to be a clear place to download anything later than the XI R2 shipping code for Crystal Server either for Windows or for Linux.  The latest version of Developer is easy to find.... what about Crystal Server?

    MAILS--Dear Mohit,
    Thanks for the patience.
    We have received the below update from the Licensing Team.
    You received your permanent key in respect of these licenses - the key is  for Crystal Reports Server XI.
    You did not purchase these licenses for Crystal Reports Server, but purchased it for Crystal Reports and a 5-named user license for Crystal Reports was included as a special offer.  The software included was version XIR2, but you elected to use version XI instead and received key .
    You would need to enroll the licenses in maintenance if you want to upgrade them.

    Please help us to resolve the issue as early as possible.
    My contact number:
    If you need any further information do let me know

    Ajit,
      By design, the product is not able to be installed under the superuser account.
    1.  Create a new user and specify a home directory for the user without a quota set.
    2.  Copy or move the installation files to a directory that the new user can read.  I suggest you move the installation files directly into the new user's home directory.
    3.  Logon as the new user (or su - newuser)
    4.  run the installation shell script using that new user's account.
    NOTE:  Ensure the system meets the requirements from the supported platforms documents.

  • Crystal Report Server 2008 Embedded RAS Error

    We have installed crystal server 2008 embedded on a Microsoft 2008 server 64 bit box, with no error being reported during the install. No updates or patches have been applied and we selected the default
    installation. We then have been attemping to run a sample report that we downloaded off of SAP's support site to confirm that the installation was a success. We have not be able to accomplish this.
    Going through the Sizing and Configuration Guide for OEM Partners on page three it talks about a registry key that points to the default location that all the reports need to be housed at in order for the
    report to be run. When we preformed a search on this key no results were displayed. We need to know what steps we need to take in order to get a report to display correcvtly on the RAS.

    I dont know why that registry key doest not exist.  That paper also says that you can put a switch on the command line start for the RAS server:
    -reportdirectory <filepath>
    [ Optional ] The report directory root this RAS instance will use for opening reports. Users will only be able to open reports are contained in <filepath>, or a subdirectory of <filepath>. If unspecified, RAS will default to the value stored in the registry. For Crystal Reports Server Embedded 2008, the registry key is HKLM\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\Suite 12.0\Report Application Server\Instances\<Instance Name>\Server\LocalConnectionMgr\ReportDirectoryPath
    Try setting the -reportdirectory on your ras start line.

  • Crystal Reports Server 2008 dispose not closing document

    Hey everyone,
    I;m running some reports through Crystal reports 2008 server (no service packs) using the RAS sdk and Java.
    This was working swimmingly for a while until yesterday when the server hosting the RAS and app server fell over. I tracked it down to a problem with the RAS server. The error i got in my logs was General Exception, Report SDK Exception Not enough memory for operation.  I reran the process and when i watched task manager the memory being allocated to crystalras.exe went through the roof! it went from 50k to 1.8g of ram in under 10 minutes.
    I tried lots of the other suggestions in here for the errors about memory that are similar to mine (increasing the heap memory etc.) and none of them worked.
    One thing i noticed though is that when I run the process and watch the metrics page of the RAS server on the management console the number of Open documents does not decrease even though i am 100% totally and utterly calling .close and .dsipose after every report i open. Definitely. Ive debugged it a million times and it is calling these methods. It is successfully releasing the connections fine but does not seem to releasing the open documents. After the Open documents metric went down to 0 (im presuming after a timeout) the memory that crystalras.exe was reduced. I then  changed the timeout tag in CRConfig.xml to 1 minute to see would this help out any but the open documents did not timeout any faster.
    Would i be right in thinking that these open documents would be causing my problem of the aggregated memory? Im at my wits end here so any piece of help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi Ted,
    Thank you for getting back to me, i was on vacation there for a while so that is why i didnt get back to you.
    When I call reportClientDocument.isOpen() just before i dispose of the report it is true and after i dispose of it it correclty returns false.
    I am really stressing out over this as we are reduced to running 500 reports through the server (one after another) and then stopping the process and restarting the RAS server and then running another 500 reports.
    crystalras.exe gets up to about 2g of ram consumed for only 500 reports.
    I even changed some of the timeout settings on the settings page of the management console to see would they timeout and release the memory but alas it didnt release as much as a byte. I left it for 3 days and it didnt deallocate one piece of memory.
    Im currently investigating is there some way from my code that I can restart the RAS server, either through the SDK or through a windows process or scheduled task.
    Ted, as far as i can see there are no service packs for Crystal Reports Server 2008, is that right? when i go to the downloads page there only ones listed for release X1.
    Thank you for your help.

  • Query regarding Crystal Reports Server

    Hi,
    I am new to Crystal Reports.
    I have created a couple of .rpt files using CR2008 and I am loading these report files in my aspx pages using CrystalReportViewer control.
    I am planning to host my webApp on IIS in production environment. Maximum simultaneous/concurrent connections to my reports would be 1 or 2.
    My question is:
    1. Do I need Crystal Reports Server in this scenario?
    2. In future if the number of concurrent users to report increases then do I need to go for Crystal Reports Server? Will just buying and installing the Crystal reports server on production server work? or will I have to do some configuration or some other changes in the existing deployed reports? OR Will I have to deploy my existing reports on Crystal Report Server again?
    Any help will be highly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
