Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

The SSRS FAQ is collected from those frequently asked questions in the SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) forum. It attempts to answer the most frequently asked questions related to the design, development, security and administration of SSRS 2005/2008, and to reduce the number of posts that result from the repetition of questions on the same topic, wrong answers to these questions and corrections to the wrong answers etc. It serves as a repository of consolidated answers to these most common questions. If there is any feedback, please send to sqltnsp@online.microsoft.com by removing "online.".

Sharepoint Server 2010: Reporting Services Integration - 401: Unauthorized

  

Hi everybody,

I know - there are lot's of articels, posts, etc.. about configuring Reporting Services in Sharepoint 2010 and I feel like I read them all hundred times at least... but none of them helped me solving my problem.

 

I have the following Scenario at a customer:

Servername / Functionality

db01 / MsSQL 2008 R2 server (also contains the ReportServer DB - of course it's type is Sharepoint Integrated)

app01 / Sharepoint 2010 Server (Complete Installation) - used as Indexing Server and running some other Service, Central Administration, Reporting Server

*fe01 / Sharepoint 2010 Server (Complete Installation) - used as Frontend Server

*fe02 / Sharepoint 2010 Server (Complete Installation) - used as Frontend Server

*member of Windows NLB

 

I configured Reporting Services Integration in Central Admin and everything worked perfectly correct - no errors - strike!.

But now comes the "funny" part:

 

If I open a Report on a Sitecollection like http://app01:1234/ the report is getting rendered and presented - yeah!

But if I open a Report on a Sitecollection like http://NLB-URL/ the report throws an error (damn!):

For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors

OLAP: Build an OLAP Reporting App in ASP.NET Using SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services and Office XP

  

Many organizations analyze their business-critical data using Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology. OLAP-based data mining provides a way to query multidimensional data sets and drill down into the data to find patterns. ASP.NET and the Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) enable Web-based OLAP reporting. The OWC controls include PivotTable and Chart components that can be embedded in a Web page and scripted by programmers.

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.
