As with all these type of queries with licensed versions of Tableau Desktop or Server, although it's worth looking-up the forums, it's far better to contact Tableau Support directly.
I've seen this error several times, and usually, if I just try again I get past it.
Thanks for your answers.
I finally fix this issue. It was due to an "extern" file in the folder "../vizqlserver/local/data"... That create an error during the loading of the GEOCODING database.
Thank you again.
I am getting below error while publishing the workbook to Tableau Server 8.0.5 with 2 data sources i.e Excel and Oracle 11g with Extracted data.
"An error occurred when publishing the workbook.
Response code: 500
Tableau Server encountered an unknown error."
My workbook is having 5 views. When i am testing with Connect Live option in Oracle i am able to publish the work book to server. I see your comments saying that the reason for this issue is External file in the folder "../vizqlserver/local/data" . I am not aware of what is that folder about. Please expand the solution that you have provided in previous response or If anyone come across this scenario please help me in solving this issue.
Thanks in advance.
To solve my issue, I stopped the Server then deleted the GEOCODING database and connections and copied the database and the connection from Tableau Repository (My Documents folder). After done that, I just restarted the Server and that was OK !
Hope you can solve your issue by this way.
Thanks for your quick reply.
Just wanted to expand my scenario, i have my Excel extract in "C:\Users\Keerthana_Velkur\Documents\My Tableau Repository\Datasources" and my Database extract is in "C:\Users\Keerthana_Velkur\Desktop\Exec. Dashboad\Tableau 8.0.5".
To try your solution,I do not have access to stop Tableau server and to delete the databases and connections. Just wanted to know the reason If my Tableau admin asks why to delete the databases and connections. To delete, where can i find the External file path that you mentioned in previous post.
And also wanted to know To where you copied the DB and Connection from Tableau Repository? Please let me know if you have any thoughts on it.
I got the solution. I tried with .twb file instead of .twbx. It worked.
