SQL query to get data schedule finish date from baseline and actual finish date from work planOpen in a New Window


We have a requirement where we need to pull the tasks data like scheduled finish date should come from baseline and actual finish date should come from original work plan.

I have gone through the E-R diagram but I didnot find the mapping between workplan and baseline within database.

I have tried to put mapping through sequence number of task. But If we change the original task sequence, the query will be displaying wrong results.

Can anyone please help me to prepare query to pull schedule finish date from baseline and actual finish date from original work plan.

Any help would be much appriciated.

Avoid language selection screen when using SSOOpen in a New Window

Hi all,

we have implemented generic Single Sign On on our HPE PPM instances running version 9.32. Our instances have MLU activated with languages German and English.

When a user navigates to the PPM URL, he is directly put through to the login page. He does not need to enter user name and password, but needs to select his language. Is there any way to have the language pre-selected or defaulted? We want to get rid of the extra click on the login page.

Thanks for any ideas!

Best regards,



Duplicate email notificaitons : PPM 7.0.1 SP 2Open in a New Window

Hi All,

Recently we had an issue where email notifications werent being triggered to the users for the ITG's raised from demand management. Upon investigating we found out that the DB server was restarted without PPM being stopped.

So we had to stop PPM service, clear tmp and work folders, run kupdatehtml.sh and start PPM service.

After doing this, the email notifications are being triggered in multiple copies and the number of copies is huge.

We checked SMTP server and everything looks fine. We updated the table knta_notif_txn_parents and set notification_sent_flags to 'Y' wherever it was 'N'. Even then the issue persists.

Kindly suggest what has to be done to resolve this issue. We are using PPM version 7.1 SP 9.

RE: Cannot Start Server. The Server has been disabled. Install or upgrade may have failed KNTA-10658Open in a New Window


We are trying to start an instance of HP PPM 9.22 which was copied from our UAT Environment to a new Server and DB Server. I manually changed all of the necessary parameters and passwords in the server.conf to the new hostname and database parameters. After making the changes, I ran the kUpdateHtml.sh script which ran with no problems. But when I attempt to execute the kStart.sh -name kintana1 command, it fails with the following error

ERROR server:main:(ISIntegrityServerImpl.java:406):2016/11/15-13:59:04.999 EST: Cannot start server. The server has been disabled. Install or upgrade may have failed. (KNTA-10658)
ERROR server:main:(Server.java:729):2016/11/15-13:59:05.000 EST: com.kintana.core.server.ServerDeploymentException: Cannot start server. The server has been disabled. Install or upgrade may have failed. (KNTA-10658)

For the life of me I cannot figure out why this error is happening, I have not installed or upgraded the instance yet, that is my next step after getting the new instance to run.

******* Has anyone ever received this error before or know why this is happening?  ******************










We are going to upgrade PPM into 9.31 version from 9.22. It will be great if you have any documents related to, 

  1. Issues faced during upgrade and Action taken to address the issue.
  2. Any useful documents related to upgrade process.


Thank You.
