Issue/Introduction

When attempting to test the SDM_DS JDBC connection from the JasperSoft UI, receive the following error:

java.lang.RuntimeException: Hostname servername is not part of Whitelist hostnames at com.ca.sdm.dal.sql.jdbc.driver.DalJdbcDriver.connect(DalJdbcDriver.java:342) at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(Unknown Source) at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(Unknown Source) 

When you run a report/adhoc view via the Insights App, receive the following error:

Error Message
There was an error on the server. Try again or contact site administrators. (Error UID: d25f2a49-bc7e-4f0a-9c48-db806fb92a7b)"

JasperServer.log file has an entry similar to:

Environment

Service Desk Manager 17.x

JasperSoft 6.4.3, 7.1.1 and 7.2

All Supported Windows Operating Systems

Resolution

Need to add the CABIServerHostName to the list of allowed hosts which can access the Service Desk Manager DOMSRVR layer. This is controlled via the SDM Option 'dal_whitelist'

Additional information about this is here:

Install the option and follow the appropriate maintenance procedure to install SDM options.
