Unable to use XML datasource to run a report on Report server( Report runs fines in Report designer

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 
We are trying to run a report which uses a xml file  to load a report on SSRS. We have copied the xml to the Pages folder  and are able to access the xml via the link https://<servername>/Reports/Pages/test.xml This runs fine in the report designer.(i,e we are able to get create xml data source and use a dataset to retrieve the data from xml to the report designer) However when I try to create a XML datasource on the development server and try to run the report , we get the following error Error: An error occurred during client rendering. An error has occurred during report processing. Query execution failed for dataset 'DataSet1'. Failed to execute web request for the specified URL. Unauthorized: The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized. The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized. I have updated the XML datasource to use Windows Account which is in the adminstrators group.   Any suggestions or hints are appreciated

Data Driven Subscription problem - sub runs slowly, has 40 errors out of 300, but report server trac

  
I have two report servers and a single separate SQL Server 2008 server hosting the data source database and the report server catalogues. There is a data driven subscription that runs off a sproc that returns 300 rows with email addresses for this report to be emailed to. The report itself contains around 30 subreports each with its own sproc to retrieve data. As the report is executing there are long pauses between the times when emails are actually sent out, and the subscription status will finally end with something like "Done: 300 processed of 300 total; 40 errors." I am not sure how to go about troubleshooting this problem. Details: I kicked it off at (say) 2:00 PM. Within 3 minutes in the report server execution log I saw 300 entries. There were exactly 300 people who should receive reports, so the master report should have executed 300 times and sent out 300 emails. So this looked good in the execution log. But when I checked report manager's status page for the subscription it was listed as processing 50 out of 300... Then all activity stopped, about 15 minutes some more reports started emailing out, and now I see there are around 590 rows in the execution log and maybe 97 emails sent out... Then finally I get a grand total of 846 rows in the execution log and a grand total of 260 of 300 emails sent out with 40 errors so 260+40=300 exactly. The time betw

Report builder 3.0 - Unable to connect to 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

SSRS 2008 - report manager: System.Net.WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server

  
I have an instance of Reporting Services 2008 running on Windows 2003 server.  So, the webservice URL is running on port 801, and runs fine (I can browse reports from that directory, and upload / deploy new reports and overwrite existing reports. Report manager is set to use port 800 (IIS is also on that machine running port 80).  When I attempt to connect to report manager, I get the following error, with a link to "Home" in report manager (which brings me back to the existing error page):    Unable to connect to the remote server  In the logfiles for reporting services, the following error is there: " System.Net.WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.   Any ideas? Windows Firewall is NOT running on this machine.   Thanks, Chrisrjp

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

SQL Server Reporting Credentials work when I edit my DataSource but when I try to preview a report I

  

I have a 64-bit SQL Server 2008 SP1 installation with SSL enabled, Reporting Services, Analysis Services and Integration Services are all running.

When I go into Business Intelligence Studio (on a 32-bit Windows XP client) and create a DataSource it works fine when I click on "Test Connection" but when I try to use the same connection to run a report it fails with an error message of "Login failed for user sa". 

I have saved the password so it isn't something as simple as that.

I am obviously using the "sa" user, not passing through Windows credentials, the password is definitely correct as if I make it wrong on purpose it doesn't work when I click on "Test Connection" any more.

I have tried the OLE-DB connection type and also the "Microsoft SQL Server" connection type, both show the same behaviour.

On the server I can see in the SQL Server logs, "login failed for sa user, password does not match" type errors; loads of them.

I can connect to SQL Server Management Studio using the same credentials and it is all fine.  So this is just a problem with SSRS.

This DOES work for some users.  I can save the project, load it on another PC and it works fine.  Getting the same user to log on to my PC doesn't help so it must be something about my PC??


using connection strings in the report server than the datasource in 2005

  

Hi!

I am using a datasource in the report server where all the reports use that shared datasource while calling the reports from asp.net pages.

Now, as asp.net pages uses the connection string for the databases which is assigned in the web.config file, i want the reports also use the same connection string because you don't need to change on both places( web.config and report server datasource).

Any idea plz

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

Report server URL accessible with Firefox But not with IE 8

  

I configured reporting services integrated with Share Point. I can able to access the report server URL using firefox. But, i am unable to browse to the URL using IE. Anyone, please shed some light on this. I can able to access URL in IE by using IP address:

Example : [Firefox]

Example : [Internet Explorer]

Hi there:   I've developed a webapps utilizing MS reporting service reports and it works fine on my local machine. When I promoted to production server, it failed .

For any winForms apps, do I need to install the redistributables on the report server?   thanks    Hui--Currently using Reporting Service 2000; Visual Studio .NET 2003; Visual Source Safe SSIS 2008 SSAS 2008, SVN --
