Information in this document applies to any platform.
You have a new install of Financial Reporting. When you try to view a report in Workspace in PDF format, you receive a 500 error. When you convert a rendered report from HTML to PDF, \Hyperion\logs\BIPlus\FRReportSrv.log and FRWebApp.log both give java.lang.NullPointerException errors.
You have a distributed install, with a free-standing Print Server. The Print Server name is defined correctly in Hyperion_Home\BIPlus\lib\config.properties on the Reports Server.
The Print Spooler service is running on the Print Server. The HRPrinters are present in Printers and Faxes, and the printer ports defined under Preferences: Ports for the HRPrinters contain a valid path. A valid version of Ghostscript is installed on the Print Server.
