Please check the following if CABI trace loggings turned on.

1) Servers setting on Central Management Console

  2. Log into it using a BOXI administrator account and click "Servers" under Organize category. 
  3. Double clock on each server and open its properties screen. 
  4. In Command Line Parameters field, check if "-trace" parameter has been added. If yes, delete it and click <Save & Close> button. 
  5. NOTE: For AdaptiveProcessingServer, check if the Log Level is set to "AUTO" under Logging category in the properties screen. If not, set it to "AUTO" and save the change. 
  6. Back to the screen displayed on the step 1-3).
    Right click on the server you change the setting and select [Restart Server] to restart the server.
  7. Continue 1)-4 and 1)-5 for all servers listed on the servers screen. 

 

2) Configuration file (*.ini) for each server (server process) 

  1. Locate the following *.ini file under (BOXI installation folder)\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86 folder.

    AAAnalytics_trace.ini
    AADashboard_trace.ini
    AADMining_trace.ini
    AAMetrics_trace.ini
    AAProfiler_trace.ini
    AAQueryMgr_trace.ini
    AARepoMgt_trace.ini
    AARules_trace.ini
    AASPC_trace.ini
    JobServer_trace.ini
    CMS_trace.ini
    ConnectionServer_trace.ini
    EventServer_trace.ini
    JobServerChild_trace.ini
    JobServer_trace.ini
    WIReportServer_trace.ini
    busobj_trace.ini
    crcache_trace.ini
    crproc_trace.ini
    crystalras_trace.ini
    designer_trace.ini
    fccache_trace.ini
    fcproc_trace.ini
    fileserver_trace.ini
    importwiz_trace.ini

  2. If there is, open the *.ini file by editor. You would be able to see the following text.

    e.g.

    active = true;
    importance = xs;
    alert = true;
    severity = ' ';
    keep = true;
    size = 100 * 1000;
    //log_dir="/var/logs"; Any other folder you might want, default: bobje/logging

  3. Change "active = true;" to "active = false; " to disable the trace.
  4. Leave over 1 min. The change will be automatically taken effect.
    NOTE: You do not have to restart the BOXI server.

Locate BO_trace.ini file under (BOXI Installation folder)\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86 folder or/and the folder defined by the Windows System Environment variable BO_TRACE_CONFIGFILE= as same as the above 2)-2. If there is, disable the trace as same as the above steps 2)-2 and 2)-3.
