ReportBuilder 2.0: open server report via command line?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hello,is it possible to launch ReportBuilder 2.0 and pass the server report to open via command line?Searching the forums I have found this blog-entry (Launching Report Builder from the command line), but I think it is for ReportBuilder 1.0, because SQL Server 2005 is mentioned. I have tried it anyway, but ReportBuilder 2.0 just starts with an empty report.If I specify a rdl-file from the local file system the report will open fine:MSReportBuilder.exe d:\temp\samplereport.rdlthanks in advance and best regards,Gerald

Install SQL Server 2008 x64 The INSTANCESHAREDWOWDIR command line value is not valid

My objective is to install SQL 2008 x64 on a brand new server running under Windows 2008.
VS 2008 and .NET 3.5 are installed and work fine.

I performed the following steps:

1.    Downloaded SQLFULL_X64_ENU.EXE from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/bb851668.aspx
2.    Unpacked;
3.    run setup.exe as admin
4.    on SQL Server Installation Center: Installation | click "New SQL Server stand-alone"
5.    I didn't change the installation folder (grayed anyway)
6.    Followed the instructions. I selected Database Engine Services

I get the error message "The INSTANCESHAREDWOWDIR command line value is not valid".

I then tried to install with command prompt, with identical results:
For command prompt install I used the following bat file:

c:\users\public\downloads\mssql2008\setup.exe ^
-/Action=Install ^

I also tried to use setup100 (including the parameter /Timestamp) but I get the error message "the timestamp must be set before its first use".

SSRS 2008 Report Manager only accessible within the server, cannot open on a different PC


How should I configure my SQL 2008 Reporting Services so that the Report Manager can be accessed outside the server.  That is, from a different machine within the same network?  Whenever I try to access the Report Manager from another machine, a prompt will appear requesting for username/password several times before a blank page is shown.

Reporting Services Configuration Details:
Service Account: Local System
Execution Account: Tried using my own login details within the domain and tried without it

Please let me know if you need any other details.  I am running out of ideas on what I can possibly do, thanks!

crystal report -visual studio 2008 dual axis chart (bar & line)


dear all, 

i use crystal report integrated with  vs.2008, and i want to make chart with dual axis (bar & line).

i have used bar chart and input the data with 2 values..

then in chart options > template, i activated the dual axis..

my question is, how i can change the 2nd value with line chart not bar chart??

i'd tried to find the right settings in "chart options" but still can't find the solution.

for information in "chart options" there are 4 sub menu : template, general,titles,grid..

i read in a tutorial there's more sub menu called "series" in crystal report (stand alone version)..

is it possible doing it in Crystal Report VS. 2008?

please,, i need your advice and solution..

Thanx before..

Virus Hunting: Track and Report Server Attacks Quickly and Easily with the .NET Networking Classes


To help stop the spread of worms, viruses, and other hostile activity, it is important to track down and report the servers used in these attacks along with those used to send spam. Many Web administrators, however, don't take the time to track them because the manual process can be quite cumbersome. The Microsoft .NET Framework comes to the rescue with several networking classes, including the Dns class and the TcpClient class, that abstract away the complexity of performing DNS and WHOIS lookups. These classes make it easy to create a simple, straightforward ASP.NET-based utility for performing these lookups and automating this very important task.

Cannot export from a Report in SharePoint integrated mode in a server hardend environment


We have installed Reporting Services 2008 integrated with MOSS with SQL Server 2008 on a 64 bit platform.

The environment has worked fine in test (but the servers are not hardend).

With the production environment, any attempt to export from a report into another format (eg excel, tiff etc) results in an unexpected error within SharePoint requiring closing the browser and reopening.

There are no details behind the error. We can also find no traces of the error within any of the logs (SharePoint, Reporting Services, Windows event log etc)

When the report is opened directly from Reporting Services (ie http://servername:8080/reportserver) the report exports fine. Similarly, if the report is opened directly from Report Builder 2, or through opening Report Builder 2 from SharePoint there is no issue. This issue only happens when the report is invoked directly through SharePoint.


We can only assume that this issue has something to do with server hardening/UAC as we have
