Report builder 3.0 - Unable to connect to server

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi there, We've been using Report Builder 2.0, and its been working pretty nicely. We have the option 'Use this report server or sharepoint site by default' option set to http://<server>/reportserver - and users can connect via the 'Open' dialog, save, etc. However, some of our users have been testing Report Builder 3.0 - and they are unable to connect, even though the URL is set exactly the same.  They have Report Builder 2.0 and 3.0 installed on the same client workstation. With the same settings, 2.0 can connect, but 3.0 can not. The target installation is SSRS is SQL 2008. The error is: Connection failed. Unable to connect to the server that is specified in the URL... Make sure that the server is running, the URL is correct and you have permission to use the server. Does anybody have any ideas? thanks, mark

Report Builder 3.0 unable to access SharePoint Foundation 2010 Report Server


I am having a terrrible time getting this to work. I have configured the SharePoint site and the SQL Servers involved to use Kerberos. That has been confirmed working.

I then configured the SharePoint site's Reporting Services integration (trusted account), enabled anonymous access and enabled report builder. I can launch report builder without any issues at all. The problem comes when I try to save my report. When Report Builder is started Items->New-ReportBuilder Report it opens and display in the lower left hand corner "No current report server." When I close the Wizard dialog and click connect I enter http://server.fqdn.net and I receive the following error:

Connection failed:

Unable to connect to the server that is specified in the URL, 'http://servername.fqdn.net/'.

Make sure that the server is running, the URL is correct, and you have permission to use the server.

I have also tried http://servername.fqdn.net/reportsserver/. When I try that I receive a login prompt. When I enter my credentials it tries for a few seconds and then sends another login prompt. I installed the report server using default settings. The reporting services db is on the same server as sharepoint. The configuration and other databases are on a remote S

how to connect report server from report builder?


last time I asked, but no one answered, since the db is in sharepoint integrated mode, now I use native mode, still cannot connect it, it keeps asking me the user name and password. even I use the administrator account. and I can access in IE the http://myserver/reports and http://myserver/reportserver , does anyone know if this url is asked when connect to report server from report builder?

I am thinking the report builder is not used this way? I mean it can only be accessed from report manager web site?

Unable to connect to SQL Server 2005 remotly, all client protocols are blank

I have an installation of SQL 2005 and had issues connecting remotly. Looking at the client protocolols, they are all blank. I can see that TCPIP, Named Pipes, VIA, etc. are 'enabled', but where the words 'TCPIP', 'Names Pipes', etc. should be, it's just blank. I tried to install SQL 2008R hoping the Client Protocols would be corrected during the installaion, but they were not. I'm assuming the issue with the Client Protocols not showing up is a symptom of the problem. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Error Message: The attempt to connect to the report server failed. Check your connection informatio

I have a web page that contains a ReportViewer control.  I am trying to display a report, which is an .rdl file located on the SSRS server, in this ReportViewer control.  I have set the ReportPath and ReportServerUrl correctly.  I am getting an error message.

Check your connection information and that the report server is a compatible version. The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found.
