How to resolve current transaction is aborted issue in the BOBJ Migration project(Netezza to PostgreSQL)

Problem Statement :After migrating the Web Intelligence Reports from Netezza to PostgreSQL database, while refreshing/scheduling the report we are getting the current transaction is aborted issue.

This blog explains the sbo file settings for BOBJ reports migration from Netezza to PostgreSQL database. Each database drivers are different SBO files. I would like to present you the solution for current transaction is aborted, commands ignored until end of transaction block; Error while executing the query

Frequent causes are

  • Reporting database drivers not loaded or found
  • An error returned by the reporting database indicating a connection or other system issue
  • Network connectivity issues between the BI server and the repo3`rting database
  • Incorrect SQL or MDX being passed to the reporting database.
  • Incorrect prompt values being passed to the reporting database.

Please ensure all the above mentioned causes are validated and confirmed ,although still you are facing the same issue , then follow the below steps (ODBC or JDBC Connections)

Step 1: Login to BO server
Step 2: Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionServer\odbc
Step 3: Take the backup of the particular database driver .sbo file
Step 4: Add the below parameter in the .sbo file and save the file

<Parameter Name=”Transaction Mode”>AutoCommit</Parameter>

Step 5: Restart the BO server
Step 6: Run/Refresh/schedule the report.
