I don't know what you're running into here, but it might be worthwhile to do a quick tabadmin restart just to make sure something hinky isn't cleared....
Tried that, and rebooting...
Now I get the same error for all workbooks if I try to re-publish them all again.
Does Tableau allow publishing the same workbooks (identical files) over the top of ones already published (exact same name) ? Each workbook contains some 50 views. So for 40 workbook = 2000 views. Numbers too high causing timeout / errors?
thanks for reply
Yes - you should be able to overwrite -- I see you're using -o.
Can you overwrite/publish via Desktop? Have you updated Server lately without updating the version of TabCmd you're running?
I'm beginning to think this may be one for tech support.
I am running into nearly the same problem except the message I am receiving is "Another user is updating the workbook, please resubmit your change." However for me the workbook doesn't even exist on the server and I am unable to publish the report due to receiving this error.
I tried publishing with both tabcmd and the tableau desktop.
all software, including tabcmd has been updated to version 8.
The issue you've bumped into is a recently-discovered bug that our developers are currently working on fixing. No ETA as of yet, but they're going at it really hard.
Sorry for the trouble,
Thanks Russell for the heads up. Do you know of a work around so I can publish workbooks on the server?
i'm now running into the same issue. Newbie customer here and the server has been running for a week now with no issues publishing from Desktop or browsing. VM Server went down this morning and our Infrastructure Team was able to get it back online. I've published once since then and then during a subsequent publish, i clicked on 'cancel'. Now it get this error. Going to try the tabadmin restart now
just did the tabadmin restart and now i can publish from Desktop just fine
I am getting this same issue with multiple workbooks as well. Can't publish from tabcmd or from desktop. What's the status of the bug fix?
Is there any update to this issue from Tableau ??? This is a major problem that we keep running into and it completely stops our production analysis. It happens very consistently for workbooks that are using extracts and then an update is published either from Desktop or from tabcmd. We have no way of re-publishing the workbook.
How can I escalate this issue if it is not being addressed?
I'm glad Tableau is aware. I'm running into the exact same issue and it's causing some problems (so far we end up having to completely restart the server in order to publish).
I'm not sure how aware or unaware Tableau is. There has been no response on this thread in over a month as to when we should expect to see a resolution. I went and opened a support ticket for it, because it is a pretty critical problem for us right now. I've found that restarting the server only sometimes fixes it. Most times, the problem persists after a restart and after entirely deleting the workbook...
In that case, I'll go open a support ticket on this as well. We're actually experiencing quite a few problems with Tableau 8 right now, but this is one of the more crucial.
Hi Sarah and Brian,
I just looked into this and it seems that a fix is being tested for this issue. Hopefully, it will work and can be implemented soon.
Thank you for your message. I've been in touch with Tableau about this, but they apparently do not want to deal with the issue. I seem to have been put on hold indefinitely. I'ts been 6 days since any further contact by their support team. Tried to reconnect t day, so we will see what I hear. I don't understand that if something is a known bug, why can't a rep just say that and give a target fix date ?
Well on to my next issue with Tableau... I used to be a pretty strong fan of Tableau products but v8 is pretty much a buggy mess.
