During distribution, the QDS tries to create a log file in xml format called "DistributionReport.xml" in the same QDS log folder as the TaskLog.txt and (optional) DocumentLog.txt files. This may have failed for the task run in your snippet. But since this is not a critical problem (and document distribution was successful anyway), it gets classified as a Warning.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the reply.

Is there anything i need to do with this warning?

Well, if the task with the warning has dependent tasks and they all trigger just fine, you can ignore the warning. It is a known problem in QlikView and Qlik is "considering a redesign of the functionality".

I have a similar issue and it is getting annoying as other warnings such as a node failure at distribution is important and worth review. I don't want to start ignoring warnings because they have no meaning.

Is there a way to change the behavior? Has any additional thought been given to correcting this behavior?

I have not seen this behavior until upgrading to QV12.2 SR2
