View - Not able to browse reports in EXP mode


Article ID: 242253


Updated On:




We are not able to browse the reports in one of our View databases.

We receive message "Invalid distribution id".

How do we change the Distribution ID to browse the output?

CA View EXP -- Primary Selection for SAR.SYSTEM3 ---------------

Distribution ID ---> ABC1234

Report ID ===> SYSLOG
Select By ===> R (R, I, IL, or IR)


Release : 14.0

Component : View


The message "Invalid distribution id" is generated when the designated Distribution ID is not found in the Deliver database related to the View database. 

SARINIT parameter EXPRESS=dlvr_hlq points to the related Deliver database. 

To change to another Distribution ID, you can use command:

 . MODE EXP dist_ID

You may or may not be allowed, in security, to make such a change. 

To investigate making a change, please use command "DEF USER", and go to the person's TSO signon ID, then find the "Dist ID Mask" field, and change it to "*".
