How to resolve "QDSMain.Exceptions.FailedDocumentCheckoutException: Failed to check out document with path"?


When I manually reload the QVW that connects to the database, it works fine. But when I scheduled a reload thru management console, it appears FAILED in reloading document.

It has an error like "QDSMain.Exceptions.FailedDocumentCheckoutException: Failed to check out document with path"

Why is that it says "Failed to check out document with path"?

I hope anyone can help me resolving this issue.

HI Gents,

the issue has been sorted out. It was permission issue for the Qv user to access/modify the application.

Hello !

Yesterday i had same exception in publisher.

I we tried read log files from SYSTEM folder  , but it was useless.

The reason of issue was reload of app with Section Acess without publisher.

At the next attempt of reloading,
the exception was repeated.

To solve this issue you need to follow next steps.

1) Comment Section Access part of script and reload App manually.

2)Save app and start reload app thru publisher.

3)Make sure , that there are no any exceptions(in publisher).

4)Open app and uncomment block with Section Access(without reloading) , save & close application.

5)Go back to your publisher and start task again , it must work out without exceptions.

Good Luck !


Hi Pomah,

If you add a user to section access you have to reload the script before you put it on the publisher. So, I would suspect that the service account was added, but the script was not ran. When when publisher tried to run the script it didn't have rights to open the document.
