    'Historical Failure' error message

    Fausto Capellari

      Hi everyone,

       

      I'm sorry if this is way too newbie, but I couldn't find anything about it.

       

      Recently I've been tasked to monitor Tableau Server tasks. In the 'Background Tasks for Extracts', I've noticed that some extracts are failing with the message 'Historical Failure': no more details are show.

       

      I've also checked the 'backgrounder-*.log' files but I couldn't find those tasks (I've searched for both task ID and name).

       

      Is there another way to find out the real failure cause?

       

      Any suggestions will be appreciated.

       

      Thanks,

       

      Fausto
