This error displays only when launching User Console. Admin Console works fine and monitors can be created and implemented without any issues, however, export feature also fails.



Conflict with MySQL .Net Data provider. The Monitor server also has MySQL .Net data provider and database engine installed. 



  1. Backup web.config file located on Monitor server's <KM install path>\Program Files (x86)\ReveilleSoftware\Reveille\Web\Reveille folder.
  2. Scroll down to the <Providers> section under <System.web> and add in the line to remove MySqlSiteMapProvider as follows:


3. Save web.config file.

4. Restart User Console and confirm issue resolved.


Here is a excerpt from the error stack:

6/17/2022 12:51:22 PM: Debug [<redacted>:Administrator] ReveilleMonitorService - Execute SQL: Select Monitor, Action FROM Monitor WHERE Server=? AND Action <> 0 ORDER BY Monitor

If the above steps do not resolve this issue, continue troubleshooting as follows:

  1. Run the Kofax Monitor Pre-Requisite check and verify all requirements are met.
  2. Verify the ODBC 32-bit DSN connects successfully.
  3. Verify the KM database by using ReveilleDBMigration from <KM install path>\ReveilleSoftware\Reveille\Support\UpdateDB folder and verify no errors are found.
