Common Issues and Error Messages
This section lists common issues and error messages that can occur when running reports and provides information on how to resolve the problems.
To see error messages:
Step 1 In the from the System menu, choose Messages.
Step 2 To view only error messages, click Error.
Step 3 To see a console log, under the System menu, choose Logs, then choose Console Log.
Database Tables Become Unstable
If your report modifies the same tables used by other reports, the database might become unstable.
Also, when there is a change to the existing database like adding a column or renaming a column or deleting a column, table and view drops are required. Make sure these drop views are done in both gateway and unit to avoid inconsistency.
Incorrect MIB Variable
If your report uses an incorrect MIB variable, an error message will appear.
Check the MIB and check the XML code in your report to make sure that the variable is referenced correctly.
