Sometimes people bring issues to me that exceed my knowledge and experience (or time to investigate). Business Objects is a complex tool now and there are always new nooks and crannies full of “features” that frustrate BO administrators and users. Alan Miles brought this latest one to my attention; I hope that we can collectively study this issue, try to replicate it, and comment on what is happening here.
Steps to Reproduce the Issue:
SELECT SI_LASTLOGONTIME FROM CI_SystemObjects WHERE SI_ID = xxxxx in Query Builder and refreshing it between a user’s logins.
The value for SI_LASTLOGONTIME only updates every other time a user logs in (to InfoView or CMC), so first login no date change, next login the date changes, next login no change and so on.
Is this generally the case with BO or am I seeing something peculiar to our setup? Thanks for any light you can shed on this. Please provide any inputs in the comments section and both Alan and Julian will do their best to respond to them.
