Symptoms

You have recently made modifications to an Essbase outline (such as the renaming or deletion of existing members).  Now you're attempting to run a Financial Reporting report which references those members.  The error that results is: "2006: remote server exception has occurred".

In 11.1.1.4 and earlier builds, when this problem occurred, the error message text was more thorough -- it would contain the phrase "Unknown Member" plus the actual name of the member.  Users knew exactly why the report wouldn't run, and they could fix the problem right away.  In 11.1.2.1, the generic "2006" error does not provide any indication of what is wrong.  The FRLogging.log file still contains the more detailed "Unknown Member" error, but a user might not have access to this log file.
