NetIQ Secure Configuration Manager 5.7


When exporting or distributing a completed report to a PDF format the resulting file is corrupted.


To resolve this the gui must be logged in with SQL Authentication to reset the communication problem.  To do this Open the Core Services Configuration Utility.  Go to the Database tab.  Change Allow SQL Authentication to True and click Apply.  Close the configuration utility.  Restart the Netiq Core Services service.  Open the Login Dialogue box for SCM.  Click the Configure button.  Check the box for Use SQL Authentication. Login and try to export the report again.  Then you can login normally by unchecking the Use SQL Authentication box. 


The communication between the export part of Core Services has been reset incorrectly.
