After doing some investigation, it seems like McAfee is blocking the DS from working at random points during the day. I have 2 jobs that run daily, one on the hour and the other at 10 after the hour. They both run about 45 seconds each and do no access the same data. Last night they ran on their schedule, both failed at 12 and 12:10, 1 and 1:10, then at 3 but NOT at 3:10, then both failing again at 5 and 5:10.
So its sporadically failing throughout the 24 hour period it has run and the failed time stamps line up with McAfee's AccessProtectionLog file when the ip and port 25 were brought into question.
You have any suggestions on this?
we have an similar error here wich keeps the DS form comleting the Tasks sucessfully. It fails at the end when trying to renaming TaskResult_XXXXX.xml to TaskResult_XXXXX.xml.old. It leaves the Pubisher task in an uncertaint state and we are not able to start the task again. After restarting the DS it seams to work again.
It seams that the virus scanner (Trend Micro Office Scan) has nothing to do with that issue because we have excluded this directory from beeing scanned.
We have a complex setup with distributed servers for DS and QVS and CC. The Jobs are scheduled external by UC4. And we have Version 9 SR 4 in production on Windows Server 2008 64x.
Sorry for the post jack but I'm very interested in the UC4 application that you are using for scheduling jobs. My client utilizes this application for all of their other existing schedule jobs and I would like to know more from anyone else using it with QlikView. Are you scheduling just reloads? Are you executing tasks from UC4?
We could take this offline as well since it doesn't really apply to this thread.
