Controller Configuration program hang


Cognos Controller 10.1

Windows 2008 R2


When going into Cognos Controller Configuration and select Report server tab then the Controller Configuration program hang.


During the upgrade with a interim fix for Cognos controller the web.config file in c:\Program Files (x86)\ibm\cognos\c10\ControllerProxyServer have been changed. The server name have been changed with local host values.


The report server value is stored in both web.config and registry on HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\VB and VBA Program Settings\FrangoController\Shares\CRNPath

Problem arise when the values does not match.



Open c:\Program Files (x86)\ibm\cognos\c10\ControllerProxyServer web.config in notepad


Change lines

<add key=”crnServer” value=”http://localhost/ibmcognos/cgi-bin/cognos.cgi”/>

<add key=”crnDisp” value=”http://localhost:9300/p2pd/servlet/dispatch”/>


to lines with correct server name

<add key=”crnServer” value=””/>

<add key=”crnDisp” value=”http://”/>


Save the file

Open Windows task manager

Mark IBM Cognos Controller Configuration in Applications tab

Right click and select End Task

Start Cognos Controller Configuration program again.
