Crystal Reports 2008 - Report off of Active Directory

I have found a few articles on how to do this, but they don't seem to follow my wizard.
Can someone provide a tutorial on how to create a Crystal Reports 2008 report against active directory?
I have been able to do the following so far:
1) Create new OLE DB (ADO) connection
2) From Provider, choose OLE DB Provider for Microsoft Directory Services.
3) The fields I have are Data Source, User ID, and Password.
   - I do not have a field for "LOCATION" that is referenced in documentation I have found on here.
4) I enter my for active directory, a valid username and password.
5) It seems to create the connection, and wants me to ADD COMMAND. I haven't been able to find a command that actually works online. Does anyone have one? I.e.: Employee and Supervisor names.
Thank you,

backing up a step or two, make sure that the username you are using has a domain alias infront of it, something like "mydomain\myusername" should be the correct format. even if you don't get an error when you create the connection it may be incorrect. when entering in a command is the only time it actually tries to authenticate against the AD server. If you make a mistake when entering in the original connection (anytime before the add command part) remember that you will need to exit out of Crystal Reports and come back in. the connection can not be remade or edited once entered.
Now, as for what to put into the query, you will probably need to talk with your windows AD administrators. the one I used for my organization was something like this (replace the stuff between the <> marks with your data):
SELECT samaccountname, sn, givenname, mail FROM 'LDAP://OU=<yourOU>,DC=<yourdomain1>,DC=<yourdomain2>'
remember you can not use * to get data, it seems to take what ever properties you directly name. if you need names of properties or items to call, I'd recommend a quick google search on LDAP SQL queries.
I hope this helps

  • Crystal Reports 2008 - Report Load error - Memory Leak Error?

    We have a problem with Crystal Reports 2008 with .NET 2.0.
    CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine, Version=12.0.2000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304
    The problem is that during high amount of report producing, errors in eventlog pops up and the production of reports using <br>
    Crystal Reports stops.
    Below are examples of the three most common event logs.
    We have tried to implement a cleanup method both as a destructor (with a global ReportDocument rdoc variable) and using direct call to cleanUpDoc() method when finished with loading doc:
            private void cleanupDoc()
                    if (rdoc != null)
                        rdoc = null;
    The doc is loading using the "normal" method (in-process).
                        rdoc = new ReportDocument();
                   catch (Exception ex)
    ...process doc....
    Furthermore we have tried during Scalable tests of the system - but cannot produce the below errors ourselves. Only the customer can.
    Please help with solving this problem.
    Is the above advisable to do?
    Should the document be loaded in another way?
    Is it a memory leak?

    First, ensure you have the latest service pack / hot fix for your version of Crystal Reports, and that the client has the same updates as well. Fix Pack 2.4 is the current latest, and can be downloaded from our downloads section.
    One of the errors is the Background Processing error, so have a look at the following article:

  • How to install Small Business Server 2008 in an existing Active Directory domain

    It is shown on this page:, "How to install Small Business Server 2003 in an existing Active Directory domain".
    Is it possible to do this with SBS2008 ?
    If "YES", are there any published information about the procedure ?

    Yes, it is. Thank you very much.
    But there is something that confuses me - I want to migrate from Win2003Std to SBS2008. And also, I want to keep the existing Win2003Std as a second DC for a long time.
    But it is written in the shown article:
    ... After the migration is finished, you must remove the Source Server from the network within 21 days. ...
    Is this rule mandatory for the scenarios where the Source Server is Std, not SBS ? As I know, I can have more than one DC(Win2003Std/Win2008Std) together with SBS2003. But what about SBS2008 ?

  • Need to count the number of groups in a Crystal Reports 2008 report

    I have created a report with three levels of grouping. There are several items in each level.  I want to count the number of groups.  I have tried countdistinct but it counts the number of items in the lowest level of grouping and I want the number of items in the higher  levels.  This is a distribution data base.  I have the data grouped by date, by truck on each date, and by "run" or load on each truck on each date.  I want to count the total number of groups of truck and run, which is the second level of the grouping.  Any ideas? I am fairly new to Crystal.

    Hi Debbie,
         To count the number of groups please try the folling steps:
    1) Create a formula @reset and place this formula in the page header
        numbervar i:=0;
    2) Create another formula @evalgroup place this in the group header where you want to count the values.
        numbervar i:= i+1;
    3) Create another formula @display and place this in report footer.
        numbervar i;
    In order to display the count of details which are printing in the detail section place the eval formula in the detail section and the @display formula in the group footer.
    Hope this helps!!!

    if (Report != null)
    Creportviewer.ReportSource = null;
    dsReport = null;
    Can someone help me resolve the issue.

    The .rpt file size is 14MB with the Data Save option enabled, 12MB without Data Save.  Presumably the 12MB file size is because of the 24bit PNG we have as our background.
    The Designer executes the report in less than a second and we can scroll through all pages and see the image fields perfectly.
    When we Export to PDF, the Designer takes a long time, eventually gets to the 77%, the 7th record and returns "Export report failed" followed by "Memory full".  If we export only page 1 of the 3 pages, it also returns a Memory full error.  However, when the same report is run with only 1 page, that page exports to PDF but with a ridiculously large size and export time.
    The machine has 2GB of physical memory with an 8GB pagefile with Windows 2003 (latest everything).  The process runs up to about 1GB before reporting the memory full error.
    We've also tried a variety of other suggestions posted in the other thread with no success.
    We're happy to provide the RPT file to the Report Team to diagnose the problem.  Ultimately, we need to be able to produce a 15 page report with approximately 45 images.
    Our preferred scenario is fixing problem 2.  The CR Designer seems quite capable of rendering our report and printing it to our third party PDF printer in a timely manner with small size.  However, the API reports memory full.
    The API resides in a dedicated reporting web service with NO other code except for loading the report, setting parameters and printing.  When executing, it uses up to about 1.1GB before reporting the error.
    Are there any other suggestions for fixing what we have?  Are there known problems with large images in reports?  Do we need to lodge a formal support request?
    Regards,  Grant.

  • Crystal reports 2008 sp3 : An error has occurred while attempting to load t

    Please forgive me for posting in the CR .NET forum because we are using the full Crystal Reports 2008 product and I did not see a category for it.  If there is a better forum for this question, please let me know or feel free to move it.
    We are having trouble deploying our crystal reports 2008 reports to a Windows Server 2008 R2 server in an aspx application...
    I have been working on this issue for 4-days and cannot seem to make any progress, so I would really appreciate your help.
    Our Environment:
    Development Computer (32-bit, WinXP)
      VS2008 (fully updated, was not installed with its Crystal Reports feature)
      Crystal Reports 2008 SP3 (downloaded and installed "cr2008_sp3_fullbuild")
    Database Server (64-bit)
      "SERVER2" is a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 server, fully updated
    Web Server (64-bit)
      "SERVER3" is a Microsoft Server 2008 R2 Web server.
    We have an application that is installed on the Web server and it pulls data from the database server.
    The webpages are accessing the database properly.  There is a ShowReport.aspx webpage that has the
    CrystalReportsViewer on it.  We send parameters and logon information to ShowReport.aspx.  ShowReport
    works properly on our development computer and the report looks good, but it fails on the web server.
    We downloaded CRRuntime_12_3_mlb.msi (X86) from SAP/CR and installed it on the web server without any issues.
    Our application pool on the web server for this application is set to 32-bit mode.  When I launch the
    application, it works properly with the database and displays data on web pages, but when I try to
    view a report on ShowReport, I get the following error message:
    An error has occurred while attempting to load the Crystal Reports runtime.
    Either the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly.
    Please install the appropriate Crystal Reports redistributable (CRRedist*.msi) that contains the version of the Crystal Reports runtime (x86, x64, or Itanium)  that is required.
    According to everything that I have read, I have properly matched the DLLs: On the development computer, "cr2008_sp3_fullbuild" was installed; On
    the web server, "CRRuntime_12_3_mlb.msi (X86)" was installed.  They are both Crystal Reports 2008 and not .NET.  CR.NET was not installed on our development computer, so our application was built with full Crystal Reports 2008 SP3.  On our development computer, .ENGINE is 12.0.2000.0 and
    the same version is on the web server.
    So, I am completely at a loss as to why we are encountering this error.  Help, Please!!!
    Thank you in advance,

    Hi Mike,
    Did you set your project for X86 mode only? If not do so and rebuild and deploy your app.
    Thank you

  • Crystal Reports 2008 - Blank page on server only

    Crystal Reports 2008 - Blank page on server only
    My report is developed in the Crystal Reports 2008 Report Designer
    I have a .NET application that takes the report file, an ODBC connection and exports the resulting report to PDF. This application is deployed as an MSI and includes the Crystal Reports .msm merge module. The report uses multiple views and tables from a single database to create invoices in PDF format.
    Problem: For one particular invoice, a blank page is being added to the end of the invoice. This blank page contains the report's standard page header. There is no missing data and no missing sections on the invoice. This is only occurring when the pdf is generated on a Windows Server 2008 x64 server where the application is deployed using the merge modules.
    I have installed the application locally on my Windows Vista Business x86 system and the generated PDF does NOT contain the blank page at the end.
    The blank page is not generated when previewing the report in Report Designer. For the particular invoice this is occurring on, footer F and footer G are blank and therefore suppressed.
    Please bear in mind that this happens only for one particular invoice that uses this report file and does not happen from my local system using the same .rpt file.
    The report is constructed of the following sections:
    -Page Header (suppressed on page 1)
    -Grp1 header A (watermark conditionally suppressed based upon a parameter)
    -Grp1 header B (Keep together - always fits onto a single page)
    -Grp1 footer A (Keep together)
    -Grp1 footer B (Conditionally suppressed based upon data)
    -Grp1 footer C (Keep together)
    -Grp1 footer D (Contains sub report(suppressed when blank). Keep together. Suppress blank section. New page before but (Not OnLastRecord))
    -Grp1 footer E (Contains sub report(suppressed when blank). Keep together. Suppress blank section.)
    -Grp1 footer F (Contains sub report(suppressed when blank). Keep together. Suppress blank section.)
    -Grp1 footer G (Contains sub report(suppressed when blank). Keep together. Suppress blank section.)
    -Report footer (Always blank. Suppress blank section)
    -Page footer (Fixed static content, displayed on every page.)

    Thanks for responding, Jonathan.
    Is the same runtime installed on the 64 bit system? I notice from your version number that you do not have any service packs installed on the dev system. SP 2 is out and may help.
    I have installed SP1 and SP2 this morning, resaved the report file and tried again but the same problem remains.
    I'm not sure how to answer your runtime question. I am using the same application built with the same merge modules on both the dev machine and the production server. Of course, the dev machine has the additional complication of having Crystal Reports 2008 installed. Perhaps this is causing the difference?
    Compare the printer settings between the two systems. Try installing the same printer driver on the 64 bit system.
    Perhaps I am misinterpreting your suggestion, but I am not printing the invoices. I am only exporting them to PDF. It is the PDF that has the extra page. Is there a 'print to PDF' driver of some sort that I need?
    Also, was the .NET application compiled as 32 bit, or Any CPU? Whichever it was, try switching it then recompiling to see if that helps.
    I tried switching to Any CPU but this caused the Crystal Reports module not to load at all on the 64bit Windows server.
    Thank you for your suggestions, but my problem remains. Is it worth trying with the redistributable msi rather than using the merge modules? If so, could you recommend which one I should use? I am using Visual Studio 2008 Professional.

  • DNS and Active Directory error 4000 server 2008

    Hello all,
    My network skills aren't very good and I'm facing a dilemma. First off we have two Windows servers on the network. The newest is 2008 Standard (named Vader) and the other is 2000 (dells3). Obviously I'd like to get rid of the 2000, but the people in charge
    of my budget haven't given me the option to do so and it's the only back up we have.
    Earlier in the week we had lots of problems. One of our nas boxes locked everyone out who was mapped to it and it would only let me log in through the web portal. Two of our Macs our marketing department uses suddenly locked up and wouldn't let them back
    in (both were part of the Active Directory). A second nas box won't let certain people map to it and for awhile I had issues logging into Vader itself.
    I believe all of these problems are connected to some issues on Vader and possibly in conduction with dells3. In Server Manager under DNS I get error 4000 "The DNS server was unable to open Active Directory. 
    This DNS server is configured to obtain and use information from the directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it.  Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and reload the zone. The event data is the error code."
    Then under Active Directory Domain Services I get error 2042 "It has been too long since this machine last replicated with the named source machine. The time between replications with this source has exceeded
    the tombstone lifetime. Replication has been stopped with this source."
    Followed by more text I can post if needed.
    Under File Services error 1202 "The DFS Replication service failed to contact domain controller  to access configuration information. Replication is stopped. The service will try again during the
    next configuration polling cycle, which will occur in 60 minutes. This event can be caused by TCP/IP connectivity, firewall, Active Directory Domain Services, or DNS issues."
    And finally if I try to open Active Directory Domains and Trusts "The configuration information describing this enterprise is not available. The server is not operational."
    I'm not sure where to start or what to post that might help. Any and all help is appreciated.
    Edit: Also I can only add dells3 as the DNS on Vader in the DNS Manager if I try to add Vader to itself I get an error.

    It's the other way around.  Overall, I'm advising ripping the 2008 server out of AD and adding it back . Let's look at this as a series of steps:
    1.) You do a force demote of the 2008 server because it's tombstoned.  This means the 2008 server is no longer a DC. You are doing a force because it doesn't have the ability to replicate.  If it could replicate, we'd just do a graceful demotion
    and be done with it.
    2.) Once the 2008 server is demoted, we go to the 2000 server which holds the only good copy of AD.  From that server we run a metadata cleanup using the ntdsutil utility.  We use that utility to clean out references to the 2008 server which is
    no longer a DC.
    3.) Once you have a clean AD, you can then promote the 2008 server back into Active Directory.  Make sure Vader is pointing to Dells3 as its primary DNS server before promoting or you'll run into issues.
    Hopefully that clarifies things. 

  • Active Directory Time Error

    The last 3 days or so random Macs from our 350 or so here have been falling off our Active Directory domain. When trying to unbind/rebind them Directory Utility tells me all about how AD "only permits slight variations between clocks on your computer and the AD server." This I know - Kerberos will only allow up to 5 mins difference between a workstation and the server. For this reason we sync the server (main domain controller) with a network time service, and sync all workstations and other servers to that server. This has never been a problem, and indeed works fine - the time on the workstation exactly matches the server time/time zone/date, etc.
    So why is the AD plugin (and Kerberos) telling me that the clocks are out of sync when they patently are not?
    This is happening with Macs of all kinds - 10.3 to 10.5, Intels, PPCs, everything.
    My current workaround is to stop the Mac getting its time from the server, changing the clock by a couple of seconds, and then re-binding. This generally works. The odd ones that this doesn't work on, or that fall off the domain again within 24 hours, I've removed from AD and have given local logins to for now. I'm getting to the point where I just want to scrap AD integration and get every machine locally authenticating!
    Our AD guys swear there have been no patches or changes on their end. I am equally certain there have been no changes to the Macs. So what could it be???

    Thank you, this has (again, indirectly) solved the problem. I had asked out network administrator to check the time on both domain controllers a couple of weeks ago when the issue started. He had only checked the primary, assuming that the second DC was syncing time with that. Your helpful post prompted me to go check it myself and found a 6 minute difference between the two. Manually resetting the second DC to the same time as the first fixed the problem.
    Now Mr Network Admin is left with the task of working out why dc2 isn't getting the right time. Me, I'm thankful that it's not my problem any more and just have the task of rebinding 60 or 70 machines.

  • Active Directory 2008 and Crystal Reporting

    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.

    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

  • Report off Active Directory

    Hi ,
    I want to report off our AD directory.
    I used Crystal reports for that and created an OLE DB (ADO) connection and the provider was OLE DB Provider for Microsoft Directory Services.
    This report is able to query and successfully pull the data from AD when I am using the Crystal Reports 2008 client.
    When I put the same report in the BO Enterprise server environment it fails.
    I have tried using an Universe in which the connection is based on OLE DB provider connecting to  MS SQL Server 2008
    I get the following error in Universe Designer
    Universe Designer connection error: DBD: [Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server] : [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (ParseConnectParams()).]Invalid connection.
    Any help is appreciated regarding how to make the Crystal report work in BOE or how to make the Universe Designer connection work in the designer.

    Hi Mohan
    Did you ever get this to work?
    I'd be interested in the solution.
    Many Thanks

  • Crystal Reports and Windows Active Directory

    I am trying to authenticate using the Windows Active Directory. I have created a test group in the Active directory and added myself as a member to that group. On the Crystal reports server side, I have enabled the Windows Active Directory. I can see the group that I created on the Active Directory. But I do not see any users. I have a Java infoview and I changed the web.xml file. I changed the authentication parameter to secWinAD. But does anyone know how to restart the web application server? I restarted the service Intelligent Agent. But when I login using my user id and password it still gives me the same error:
    Account Information Not Recognized: Enterprise authentication could not log you on. Please make sure your logon information is correct. (FWB 00008)
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Infoview doesn't even need to be restarted.
    You said "I have a Java infoview and I changed the web.xml file" in your original post
    If you have .net IIS then it would be a web.config file that needs to be changed. IIS will pick up the changes as soon as you save the file and open an infoview logon page. you may also opt to set authentication.visible to true so users will have the ability to select AD when logging in.
