IBM Cognos Planning 10.1.1
Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 server
Macro does not run, no error messages, but if you do a GTP manually it works.
You have several Cognos Planning servers, where some are dedicated Cognos Planning Job servers.
Ensure that all Cognos Planning servers are added to the Cognos Planning JOB cluster in Cognos Contributor Administration Console (CAC). Not only the dedicated Job servers should be in the cluster, add also the Cognos Planning Admin servers. Set the number of Maximum of Concurrent job to 0 (zero) on the Cognos planning servers.
For Cognos Planning Job servers the number of maximum concurrent jobs should be one less than the number of cpu cores on the Cognos planning server. On a 4 cpu core server the value should be 3.
Login as administrator
Right click on cluster icon for Job Server and select Add Job Server.
From the dropdown list you should see all the Cognos Planning servers you can choose.
(All in list need to be added). But servers that are not JOB servers should have value 0 for maximum concurrent jobs.
Also add all the applications, by click on the ADD button under Monitored objects, on the Job server cluster level in CAC.
After you added all the job servers, you can test to run the macros again.
Please note that for Cognos Planning 10.1.1 to work you should install both Cognos BI 10.1.1 and Cognos Planning 10.1.1 to the same folder. Then you do not need to enter a value in the Cognos Configuration for IBM Cognos BI installation location.
