UIM 8.51 Cabi probe v2.00


Before the cabi probe uploads new dashboards and reports, in this case the, it first does an automatic backup of the existing content in jasperserver. This is a safeguard in case customization has been made to the content. The auto backup logic has a default timeout of 600 seconds, and normally this is more than enough time. For some reason, that backup of the the existing Jasperserver content is running very slowly.



You can workaround the auto backup issue by disabling the auto backup feature. To do this simply use raw configure to edit the 'setup' section of the cabi probe configuration. 

The property name is 'auto_backup_on_import_enabled', it defaults to 'yes', and can be disable by setting it to 'no'. After doing this, and restarting the cabi probe, try to re deploy the uim_core_dashboards_pack from the local archive to the robot running the cabi probe. This will kick off a re upload of the uim_core_dashboards, but this time it will not attempt to do the backup first.
