When running Business Objects reports from the CA DLP iConsole with Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 8 browser, the user may be presented with a message:
Illegal access to the viewer please use a valid url.
This is caused by the "enhanced security configuration" in the IE 8 browser.
To resolve this issue,
In windows Server 2003;
Go to Control panel -> Add or remote programs -> Click on Add/Remove windows components and uncheck the component called "Internet Explorer Enhanced security configuration"
In windows server 2008;
Go to server manager -> under security information click on "Configure IE ESC" -> Select off for both Administrators and users -> Click on Ok. Then clear the browser cache and try running report.
On Windows 7 machines;
Add both the iConsole and BOXI web urls into trusted sites.
