    DataSourceException Error for reports connected to extract

    Mansi Parekh



      From last few days, Tableau server is showing error while opening the reports which are connected with Extracts. Getting the below error:


      'DataSourceException: Tableau Data Engine Error: 8: An error has occurred in IPC_Socket::Recv(buffer length=16) An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host '.


      Also, the Extracts refresh fails everytime, showing the same error.


      Screenshots are attached.


      i would really appreciate if someone can help me resolve the above issue.


      Thanks in advance!
