SAP Dashboard Error - Cannot find the BusinessObjects Enterprise report source. (LO 26608)

Cannot find the BusinessObjects Enterprise report source. (LO 26608)

Environment SAP BO XI 4.1 SP 5 two nodes Cluster
Windows Server 2012

While refreshing dashboard (based on Live Office connection) from BI Launchpad with a no administrator user the above exception was erased.

SAP says:
The document is not available; for example it does not exist, or it has been

Check the report path from CMS and use SetLocation in Live Office to
re-define the report source. Otherwise, check if the user has sufficient rights
to view the object.

In our case  we fixed this problem was to removing  all  Live Office connections from the Dashboard and re-created them and then  we saved back to platform!
When you make changes to your Live Office connection inside of the nested Excel instance, the data manager wont detect and apply changes to your Live Office configuration. Simply deleting and re-adding your Live Office connections in the data manager will solve the problem if you modify the Live Office objects or prompts.

BO XI R 3.1 - Changing Business Objects Server Hostname

If you need to change the hostname of BOE XI 3.1 server machine follow these steps

1.     Disable all job servers so schedules are protected until you are confident your changes have been executed correctly.
2.     Change the machine name. Restart the server and 3.0 backend is solid and working.
3.     Reconfigure the application servers. Stand alone or not, these may need to be reconfigured:
a. Java based (Tomcat, Jboss, etc):
- Make a copy and then edit the WEB.XML files which in Tomcat are under the following directories:
1. /webapps/CmcApp/WEB-INF
2. /webapps/InfoViewApp/WEB-INF
- Edit each of the Web.xml files with a text editor
Navigate to the context-param key. Edit to read as follows:
b. .NET based (IIS)
- Create a copy and then edit the WEB.CONFIG files which are in the following directories:
1. \BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\WebContent\InfoViewApp\CmcApp\
2. \BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\WebContent\InfoViewApp\InfoViewApp\
Navigate to the context-param key. Edit to read as follows:
4.     Reconfigure the web.xml files if you have added any cluster and cluster member information in them or other references to the old server name
5.     Reconfigure the shortcuts created by the install: delete the old shortcuts and create new ones using the new URL
6.     Node names: if you have performed a default installation, the install creates a node with the name of the server in the format .
You can keep the old naming without affecting the functionality of the Business Objects Enterprise Installation but if you want to rename the nodes for more clarity:
- log on to the CMC, navigate to Servers select Properties and rename it
- create a new node, add it to the cluster, then delete the old one
7.     SIA node: it is not possible to change the SIA node name, you should create a new one and then create a new set of servers associated to the new SIA, once all tests confirm that the Business Objects deployment is fully functional you can delete the old one
8.     Ensure the File Repository Servers are still referencing the correct location for the file store root directory
CMC > Servers
They may still be using local location defined by default variables or they may have changed.
Confirm they are still configured correctly.
9.     Database reporting: If there is a database on this server and you have created any machine name specific references to it for db reporting, these will need to be re-configured as well. Such configurations will not affect our application specifically but it will affect our application's ability to service your user requests.
10.     Change the default URL ("SI_VIEWER_URL") if you need to email the report to the users. Refer to the SAP Note 1259126 for the details.

Please note that changing just IP Address should NOT have  any impact on the system.
