SSRS IIS Permissions issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
SETUP: We have a server that runs SSRS and is also our webserver. Our reports are set up in two ways, one so that everyone can see some of the reports and a few are locked down so only admins and specific users can see and run the reports. These are set on the http://server/reports site under the security task on the report.  Issue: Some bright spark decided to change the permissions in IIS since then users can only see the "one to all reports" and not even admins could see the "locked down" reports. So not knowing much about IIS i tried to get the sites back to how they were by fiddling around with the Anonymous access and the windows authentication  on the properties on the default website, the reports site and the reports server site. I finally managed to get the users access though the reports server site but not the reports site as it has a better interface. I suddenly though of what i thought was a good idea and copped a backup to oversight the files within the sites forgetting that copy paste dosnt overwrite the permissions and now I dont have access to any site. Is there an easy way to set the permissions back to where they were and to get the sites back up.  Thanks

MOSS 07 Installation Quirks - SSRS Connectivity & SSP Permissions

I'm new to MOSS 07 and am currently learning it.  I've done clean installs and post-install configuration a few times now and I've noticed 2 quirks associated with a fresh install.  I'm not sure what is going on or the best way to "fix" them.

1 - I install SQL 05 with SSRS prior to installing MOSS and I always check to make sure that SSRS is configured and I can connect to it in the SQL Management Studio.  Once the Default port 80 Web App is provisioned, however, I can no longer connect to SSRS via the SQL MS.  I understand that this is related to the fact that the default Web App that hosts the SSRS sites is the Default 80 Web Site and that this port is taken over by the SharePoint 80 portal.  My question is, how to handle this.  I understand that I can configure SSRS to run via SP Integration.  However, when I install SSRS 05 initially and prior to installing/configuring MOSS, should SSRS be installed under a separate Web App and Port than the Default?  Does SP Integration restore the ability to connect to SSRS via the SQL Mang. Studio?

2 - In an attempt to get used to a "production" way of doing things, I create Domain Service accounts for both installing MOSS and running the services.  My problem is with the results of using an installation account.  I call it "spinsta

Permissions issue for custom web service in the _vti_bin folder.

Hello, I have created a custom ASMX webservice that returns in JSON format so that I can call the data from JQuery on SharePoint page content.  I placed it in the ISAPI (_vti_bin) folder and it works just fine when I go directly to the web service and call it the way JQuery calls it: /_vti_bin/ServiceabilityCheck.asmx/GetSystemIDByZIPCode?ipaddress= Which returns: <string>{"SystemID":"5"}</string> When I try to call it from the SharePoint site with JQuery, it errors out and gives an unspecified error.  Fiddler shows {"Message":"Authentication failed.","StackTrace":null,"ExceptionType":"System.InvalidOperationException"} as the response from the web service call. When I have the webservice on an IIS web app outside of SharePoint, it works fine.  I have anonymous access enabled on the SharePoint site, why would it give me this error?John Chapman | Blog: http://www.johnchapman.name

Issue with Enable and Disable Parameters in SSRS 2005

Hi Guys, I am currently facing an issue with Enabling and Disabling Parameters in SSRS 2005. Here is my scenario. I am having the following 4 parameters - ParamType (has values 1,2,3), ParamMonth, ParamStartDate, ParamEndDate Now What I want is When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should be enabled and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be disabled. When I select ParamType = 3 then ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should be enabled and ParamMonth should be disabled. I have done google search on this issue and found out that this is not possible at run time. Is there any alternative for this issue? If the above is not possible, I would like to get atleast in this way : When I select ParamType = 1 and 2 then ParamMonth should show the values (from dataset named MonthDataSet and default should be the latest Month) and ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate should show as NULL. When I select ParamType = 3, then I need to enter ParamStartDate and ParamEndDate values manually or pick via datepicker and ParamMOnth should show as NULL. I am not sure whether this is possible or not....but just trying to get in some way. Here is the query used in MonthDataSet : Select Month_Code, Month_Name from MonthTable. Thanks

SSRS 2008 Conditional Column Visibility Whitespace Issue

Hi Everyone,I am using IIF statements to show/hide tablix columns based upon a parameter value. These statements are used as expressions in the visibility properties for the columns.If the parameter value is one that causes the column to be hidden, the coulmn does not appear on the report, but there is whitespace in its place.I have used this functionality very frequently in SSRS 2005 without the whitespace issue. The 2005 report automagically closed this whitespace up by moving the column to the right of the hidden one to now be adjacent to the column to the left of the hidden one at rendering. This is what i need to happen now in 2008.Has anyone else experienced this? If so, would you please share your solution? I am getting extremely frustrated by this...Thanks!!

SSRS page break issue

Hi, I am using SSRS 2005. I have developed a SSRS report which prints multiple invoices, having invoice numbers and the parameters. The report is printing multiple invoices having page break after each invoice ends. But there is a header and body section. The body section contains the line items. The issue is after the header part the body part is moving to the next page for some invoices. When the line items are less, it is printing contineously after the header. If the line items are more the whole body is moving to the next page. When I try to fix this issue, some records are printing in the same page of the header and only last record is printing in the next page leaving a long blank in the first page of the invoice. I appreciate any one can solve this issue and it will be really helpful in solving this issue. Thanks , Mahalingam

2008 SSRS (R2) Oracle Client issue



We have installed SSRS 2008 R2 on 64 bit windows 2003 server, and the 64 bit oracle client to connect to oracle databases.  The tnsping, and SQL plus are working from the server.  But when we trying to access the same database from report manager using new Datasource, we will get the below error.

"Attempt to load Oracle client libraries threw BadImageFormatException. This problem will occur when running in 64 bit mode with the 32 bit Oracle client components installed."

We have installed only the 64 bit oracle client, and the Oracle folders are given with proper permissions to access it for SQL serving account which is used to run SSRS.

Any help greatly apprciated.  Thank you.

SSRS Datasource is linkedserver issue?


I have 2 SQL 2005 servers with separate SSRS installs.  Using SSRS on Server 1, I am trying to save a report that I built using Report Builder.  The report is being built from a report model on Server 2.  When I try to save the report, I get an error....Unable to bind datasource to report.


The data source may might not be accessible from the location where the report was saved.
The report was saved to "...folder/Report2".
The data source is "/Models/xxxxx".

You will no longer be able to run the report until this problem is fixed

The item '/Models/xxxxx' cannot be found. ---> The item '/Models/xxxxx' cannot be found..


Thoughts on how to get around this?
