Tableau Server still has growing pains.

Do you want to add several User to a Group all at once?  You can't   You have to enter them in one...at...a...slow...time....  There is no "Import File".  Separating with commas, semi-colons, etc. doesn't work.

                     

 

Still the best solution:  Tableau Active Directory Assistant

Sure wish I didn't have to rely on it.

From this post, here's a way to disable/enable parallel querying on the Tableau Server:

 

Here is the cmd script to disable parallel queries for Tableau server 9:

 

tabadmin stop
tabadmin set native_api.connection.limit.sqlserver 1
tabadmin config tabadmin start

Here is the cmd script to re-enable parallel queries if the problem is solved:

tabadmin stop
tabadmin set native_api.connection.limit.sqlserver -d
tabadmin config tabadmin start
