How to save Windows credentials to a data source in SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 using Visual

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 
I am trying to create a shared data source for SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 that uses a specific Windows user ID and password to connect to the database. Using the Report Manager web interface, if I create a shared data source and specify "Credentials stored securely in the report server", I can check the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. This tells SSRS that the user ID and password I specify are from a Windows user, not a SQL Server user. I want to create the shared data source using Visual Studio though. In Visual Studio I have an option to use stored credentials but there is no equivalent of the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. SSRS always assumes that user and password are for a SQL Server user, not a Windows user, and thus the connection fails. Does anyone know how to tell Visual Studio that the stored credentials are for a Windows user?

Windows XP, Visual Studio Express 2010 and SQL Server 2008 Express - How can I save modified columns

  

Hi,

I am using c# in VS 2010 Express. I have a MDF database that I connect to through "Database Explorer". Database Explorer will not let me SAVE columns that I have modified. As I know in SQL Server 2008 full edition you can change the setting "Prevent saving changes that require table recreation" in Management Console to prevent this. I haven't got Management Console and can't see it in install.

How do I change this setting if I haven't got management console? Is it in Registry or Config File.

Thanks.

SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services - How to I run a report and save the output as a .pdf on the s

  

I have the source code for doing what I want to do using a previous version of SSRS.  Since the new release, the service seems to work differently as I can't find any of the methods in the WSDL:

private
 void
 GetReportByEmail()
{
//Validate txtEmail for inputting

if
 (txtEmail.Text.ToUpper().StartsWith("XX"
))
{
lblPrompt.Text="You must enter a valid email address!"
;
lblPrompt.Visible=true
;
return
;
}

if
 (txtEmail.Text.IndexOf("@"
)<3)
{
lblPrompt.Text="You must enter a valid email address!"
;
lblPrompt.Visible=true
;
return
;
}

//Get report

TimeSheet.wdsg_svr003.ReportingService();
rs.Url="http://localhost/ReportServer/ReportService.asmx"
;
rs.Credentials=System.Net.CredentialCache.Def

Configuring Reporting Services on Windows Server 2008 R2

  

Hi all, I'm stuck here.

I'm installing a TFS2010 with Reporting Services (SQL Server 2008).

The account is a domain account who is a local administrator, the box is a Windows Server 2008 R2, I just installed Reporting Services in the box (no database engine, no Analysis Services), in the setup I choose "Install, but do not configure the report server".

In the Connect to a report server Instance I choose the local server and the default instance and i can connect succesfuly.

The services account is network service, and in the Web service Url I click apply.

Then in the Database Tab I click create database, then select create new server database and here is where my problems start.

I cannot logon to the server with the current user, I already tried changing from "network service" to the current account but that did not help, the error I get is this:

 

---------------------------
Test Connection
---------------------------
Could not connect to server: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow

SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services - Can't Authenticate with local windows account

  

No matter What I do, I can't seem to authenticate to SSRS using a local windows account unless that account is a member of administrators. Is there some sort of special role that local users need to be a member of to authenticate properly?

When I attempt to access reporting services, am prompted with a login window asking for login as password. If is use a local admin account it works fine, if I use a local user account, it prompts me again two times and then just shows a blank page.

SQL Server: Display Your Data Your Way with Custom Renderers for Reporting Services

  

SQL Server 2005 Reporting Servicesis a great tool that offers a centralized approach to storing and rendering reports. It also lets users view and download reports without installing additional software. Plus, reports can be saved in any number of different formats using custom report renderers. In this article, the author will develop one such report renderer that outputs HTML reports, but the skills you'll learn can easily be used to create a renderer for Microsoft Word documents or any other format of your choosing.

SQL Server Reporting Services not able to install on Windows Vista Home Premium

  

Recently I had a weird problem while trying to install SQL Server Reporting Service in my local PC. I am using Windows Vista Home Premium and I wanted to configure SSRS in my PC. During the installation, the setup wizard listed all the services that we want to install and I found that only Reporting Server checkbox option was disabled and I wondered why??? I thought it may be becuase of some installation problem and tried again and its useless... I googled lot of sites for 3 days and finally found that due to some IIS issues, it is not possible to install Reporting Server in Vista Home Premium version. Reporting Server needs some specific IIS features to be installed in the machine.

But unfortunately those features are not available for Home Premium users which in term restricts users not to install reporting server in our PCs... Also, Microsoft has accepted it as an issue and its not possible to get it install in Home Premium...just wanted to share and might be useful for someone like me.

SQL Server 2008 Install failure - Reporting Services Rule Failures

  
I'm installing SQL Server 2008 on Windows 7.  I'm going through the install and on the "Installation Rules" page I have two failures: Reporting Services Catalog Database File Existance Reporting Services Catalog Temporary Database File Existance Clicking on each of the failures they both say that each file exists "Select a reporting services file-only mode installation" Clicking the "Help" button tells me to "Rename, move, or delete the files" This is the only information I can find on this exact failure.  I'm not technical enough to know exactly where these files are or what they are named.  I cannot proceed any further without correcting this issue.  I'll include some of the shorter summary log files.  I can include other detail log files if that would help. Thank you so much for any help.

Windows service can't use Reporting Services on SQL Service 2008 R2

  
Hello. I have a Windows service that run as Local System account. The service uses the Reporting Services ReportService2005.asmx web service. When I have SQL Server 2008 installed, I have no problems and my service is able to browse and create report. After I have installed SQL Server 2008 R2 I get the error "The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized." when the service tries to use the web service. If I change my service to log on as a user with administrator rights, it is able to use Reposting Services again. What has changes in SQL Server 2008 R2, that doesn't allow the Local System account to use Repoting Services? And is it possible to configure Reporting Services to allow it?   - Per

Can not connect to user instance of SQL Server 2008 Express with Advance Services in Visual Studio 2

  
I used SQL Server 2008 Express with Advanced Services (not SQL Server 2008 Express) in Visual Studio 2010 because it is the fast and easy way to developed and managed data-driven applications with powerful built-in reporting and full-text search functionality. I received Sql Server 2008 Service Pack 1 with Windows Update. It's ok if I connect to instance of SQL Server 2008 Express with Advance Services (with SP1) through SQL Server Management, but if I try to attach a database in Server Explorer (Visual Studio 2010), I get the following error: "Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instance.

Jeez - I have been googling left and right, and tried all the suggestions. No luck in getting it to work. I am using Reporting Service 2008 tools in my VS2008, trying to create a simple report using SharePoint 2007 data (from a simple list). Here is what I've been doing: Created a simple SharePoint list in a test site - only one column (Title) with one record of data. Started Visual Studio 2008 and created a new Report Server Project Wizard project. I named the data source "dsTest". Type: "XML". As connection string I used: http://site/subsite/subsite/_vti_bin/lists.asmx. Credentials: "Use Windows Authentication (Integrated Security)". Clicked Next and arrived at the "Design the Query" form. I entered this in the Query string box: <Query> <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="GetListItems" /> <SoapAction>http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/GetListItems</SoapAction> </Query> Clicking Next I get this error: An error occurred while the query design method was being saved. Failed to execute web request for the specified URL. Soap Fault: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown. Now if I view the Details when trying it inside the Query Builder I get this: <errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.mi
