We had the same scenario. Had to install 10.2.1 and 10.2.2 versions in the same server, on different directories.

The error CAM-AAA-0064 The function 'CAM_UnprotectData' failed. with the detail 'CAM-CRP-0157 Unable to complete a call to the cryptographic provider's unwrap function' ocurred.

The possible cause: different applications on IIS 7 acessing different cognosisapi.dll, but in the same Application Pool.

The solution: separate the Application Pools. It's not possible as Virtual Directories. So, you'll have to convert the cgi-bin virtual directories in Applications.

Separating the 2 Cognos versions on 2 different Application Pools apparently resolved the issue.

See ya.

Cognos Connection, Viewer, Scheduler / Re: Parameter values in scheduling

I juts googled a little bit on Bursting the Report and when I looked into More - Modify Schedule, I don't see the bursting option. Is this something that the administrator would need to give me permission to do? Or where exactly would I find this bursting?

Hi,

Bursting needs to be defined when authoring the report. Once this is part of the report spec, you should see the option to enable bursting when running the report in batch or when scheduling it.

Cheers!

Yes, that's what I have to do. I'm afraid I am not familiar with bursting. I remember hearing it during the training session but scheduling was barely touched. Now months later I need to know more.

I am new to scheduling so I am trying to understand them and apply. I have for instance a report that has two prompts: one for FISCAL period (months that are different than calendar month) and Fiscal year (slightly different than calendar year as well). I need to run the report daily. SO far I don’t know any other way than having multiple schedules defined for each fiscal month and set up a year at a time. The questions are: is it possible to have multiple schedules for the same report and how would I do this. And, is there a different way to set up the parameter’s value in the prompts so that I would not have to create multiple schedules? Keep in mind that the period or month is defined different than the calendar month. 
I think the biggest challenge I have with schedules is the parameters’ values. But I would start with the example above to build experience.   

Hi,

What is the requirement here? Is it to run the same report and deliver outputs for different months? If so, have you considered bursting as an alternative?

Cognos Administration / Re: Hide SQL Query item in Report Studio
« Last post by Lynn on 18 Aug 2017 06:59:44 am »
Thank You for the prompt response.

I am aware of the Capabilities section however is there any other way to hide based on User/Role. As an example, To hide Analysis Studio, I will edit system.xml and add below parameter
<param name="ui_hide">
   <CRN_HEADER_OPTIONS_as show="Administrators"/>
</param>

As such, Is there any possibilities for SQL Query in Report Studio.

Regards,
Dhruv

Why do you need another way when there already is a way to control this capability based on user/role? Can you explain what is deficient about setting permissions on capabilities? Why would modifying system.xml be preferable?

Hello All,
Good Morning

Is there any possibility to hide SQL Query item from Toolbox from Report studio. I would like to hide on User/Role based.
Please share your thoughts..

Appreciate the suggestions!!

Hi,

If you look at the Capabilities section in the Admin Console (security tab) you will see that the Report Studio capability has some sub-capabilities. One of these is the ability to use SQL in reports (it is labelled User Defined SQL). By removing this capability from a user/group/role, you remove their ability to use SQL in reports.

Cheers!

MF.
