#1

Symptom
DPR-ERR-2072 error The request failed. It was directed to a server that is not reachable.
OR
RSV-SRV-0040 An application error has occurred. Contact your Administrator.

Problem
After adding additional dispatchers all reports fail:DPR-ERR-2072 or RSV-SRV-0040
When only one of the dispatchers is running the error does not occur. When a second dispatcher is enabled all reports fail.

Solution

Steps:

  1. Open cognos configuration.
  2. Expand the tree to…
  3. Security > Cryptography > Cognos Application Firewall
  4. Set ‘Enable CAF validation’ to True.
  5. Save configuration
  6. Restart Cognos services
