You are using BI Publisher integrated with OBIEE 11g.  You have a BI Publisher report of a single simple SQL query, no parameters, no lists-of-values and one definition of bursting.  The bursting divides the report with a single key and 1:1 sends an email for each key . So if, for example, there are a hundred distinct keys , BI Publisher sends one hundred e-mails.

If you manually run this report, it is working correctly.  The XML data is correct and the Template is correct.

If you plan the report with the bursting, some of the sub-divisions go wrong.  You tried to decrease and increase the subdivisions but the problem is not systematic, because sometimes it fails with two sub-divisions, and sometimes with fifty. This problem only occurs when OBIEE has some connected users.  If you plan this report when OBIEE is not used, the job terminates correctly with success. But the query, the data and the template are the same.
You see the following error message:

Output failed.
