The description for Event ID 4096 from source Tableau Server (Backgrounder) cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer. If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event. The following information was included with the event: 2017-11-07 10:24:38.566 +0100 scheduled-background-job-runner-1 ERROR : com.tableausoftware.model.workgroup.util.EmailHelper - The svcmonitor.notification.smtp.server setting is blank. Cannot send email.
Part of this error is the fact that you don't have your SMTP (email server settings) set up in your Configure Tableau Server.
All three error messages state "...Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted."
Error message 3 complains about no email handler so I'm seeing a common thread. Please set up your SMTP settings. If it fails again then I'd recommend re-installing Tableau Server.
Error 1 shows this, "...Tableau doesn’t support extract refreshes for one or more data sources in your workbook. (errorCode=60007)". So you need to figure out exactly which data source is failing and fix it.
Thank you Toby for your attention. You are right - 2 of 3 errors are related with unsuccessful trial of sending notification over SMTP because there was no SMTP server set in Tableau Server Configuration. I discovered that main error that in fact initiate the others - "...Tableau doesn’t support extract refreshes for one or more data sources in your workbook. (errorCode=60007)" - appeared because my Web Data Connector wasn't on whitelist (connectors safe list). Unfortunately the error message was so misleading that I didn't guessed it at the first moment.
Did setting up SMTP fix everything?
When I fixed main error (added WDC to whitelist) SMTP related error does not appears any more - there is no trial to sent anything to SMTP server and because I don't need to use those server I didn't set it up.
Glad you got it solved
