Hello Everyone,

I look everywhere but couldn't to find any step by step "Reporting Server" installation of NetXMS. And I seen pretty much everyone is facing the same issue. Well this platform is my last hope for setting up a reporting server. Instruction from user guide no help at all.

I have NetXMS server on window 2012 (physical host) and mysql database on ubuntu 18.4 (virtualbox).

I downloaded netxms-reporting-server-2.2.8

Thanks in advance
Junoon

https://www.netxms.org/documentation/adminguide/reporting.html#installation-manual

A few things I picked up:
- The SQL scripts are actually here: https://git.netxms.org/public/reporting-server.git/tree/HEAD:/sql?js=1
- logback.xml needs a closing </configuration> tag or it will barf
- You have to write your own reports, the sample jar files referred to in the documentation aren't publicly available

Slowly inching toward a working reporting server...maybe [I have been trying to get the reporting server going, on and off, for about three years]. Finally at a point where NXMC doesn't complain about the reporting server not running, but don't have any reports to run yet.
I am baffled by the way the reporting component is distributed. It comes as a zip file, yet the instructions then say to create some further directories and files...why not just put these in the zip file if they're required?!
This one is hilarious: "Simplest way to create jar files are using Maven, ...". Well, a few hours, many stack traces and lots of googling later, I'm at the point where Maven can't load...something. What is Maven looking for here?:

Thanks troffasky,

Here is the scenario :

NetXMS Server IP Add 192.168.28.12 (Window 2012 on Physical Host)
Database - MySQL - IP Add 192.168.28.14 (Ubuntu 18.04 on Virtual Box)

1) Created following folders on C:\ drive
a) C:\opt
b) C:\opt\nxreporting
c) C:\opt\nxreporting\conf
d) C:\opt\nxreporting\workspace
e) C:\opt\nxreporting\workspace\definitions

2) Download "netxms-reporting-server-2.2.8.zip" from https://www.netxms.org/download/releases/2.2/2.2.8/ and extract on C:\opt\nxreporting.

3) Create configuration file C:\opt\nxreporting\conf\nxreporting.xml. (file attached Please check file for any mistake and also for "workspace" & DB path"

4) Create Logger configuration C:\opt\nxreporting\conf\logback.xml. (file attached please check)

5) Download "ldz-alarm-resolution-time-1.0.0.jar" on C:\opt\nxreporting\workspace\definitions\ from https://www.netxms.org/forum/installation/reporting-server-4315

6) Enable reporting server, set EableReportingServer to 1 (in GUI - Server Configuration) then restart server.

7) Start reporting server - C:\opt\nxreporting>java -jar reporting-server-2.2.8.jar (Result attached - NetXMS Report Result)

8- Checked Reports Perspective on NetXMS Server , message appear " Load Reports has encountered a problem - Failed to load reports from the server: Communication failure"

No such luck - Please let me know what am i missing

Appreciate if any one can help out.

Junoon.

I don't see a step about loading the SQL scripts. You may have done this previously, it only needs to be done once. [ https://www.netxms.org/forum/installation/installing-reporting-server-on-windows-server/msg25341/#msg25341 ]

I would say from the output of the reporting server that the reporting server isn't running, and that's why you get an error in step 8.

After a long process of working, googling and thanks to troffasky & Luis Montano

Here is the scenario :

NetXMS Server IP Add 192.168.25.10 (Window 2012 on Physical Host)
Database - MySQL - IP Add 192.168.25.12 (Ubuntu 18.04 on Virtual Box)

1) Created following folders on C:\ drive (in Bold)
a) C:\NetXMS\Reporting
b) C:\NetXMS\Reporting\conf
c) C:\NetXMS\Reporting\workspace
d) C:\NetXMS\Reporting\workspace\definitions        e)C:\NetXMS\Reporting\workspace\output

2) Download "netxms-reporting-server-2.2.12.zip" https://netxms.org/download/releases/2.2/2.2.12/netxms-reporting-server-2.2.12.zip and extract on C:\NetXMS\Reporting.

3) Go to command line (Ubuntu) and use below command to get updated sql script and execute them before configure reporting server.
user@server:$ sudo git clone https://gitbub.com/netxms/netxms.git

4) From MySQL Database (Virtual Box – Ubuntu). Import quartz.sql & nxreporting.sql to netxms_db (database).
a)user@server:/etc/netxms/src/java/nxreporting/sql/mysql$ mysql –u root –p netxms_db < nxreporting.sql
b) user@server:/etc/netxms/src/java/nxreporting/sql/mysql$ mysql –u root –p netxms_db < quartz.sql

5) Download both .xml file change the path of logs, modify users and password and also IP addresss of your SQL database and should work.
a) Configuration file C:\NetXMS\Reporting\conf\nxreporting.xml. (file attached)
b) Logger configuration C:\NetXMS\Reporting\conf\logback.xml. (file attached)

6) download & use the complete “workspace” folder including “definitions & output folders” (attached)

7) Also download nxreporting.bat attached in “Reporting” folder (C:\NetXMS\Reporting\nxreporting.bat)

8 ) Enable reporting server, set EableReportingServer to 1 (in GUI - Server Configuration) then restart server.

9) Start reporting server - C:\NetXMS\Reporting> java -jar reporting-server-2.2.12.jar

10) Log on to NetXMS, you can able to see Reporting Server up and running but I can’t able to “Execute Report”

Please see the Server Report attached. When ever I run "Execute Report" nothing shows up on "Result"

Watch the output of the reporting server whilst trying to run the report.
