SharePoint integration with SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services

Hello Everyone,   I have been banging my head against the wall with trying to integrate SharePoint 2007 and SQL Reporting Services.  If anyone could offer any assistance, I would appreciate it greatly. I have been following these 2 websites down to the letter in trying to configure everything:     1. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb326356.aspx     <---Microsoft's Steps   2. http://blogs.msdn.com/sharepoint/archive/2007/02/19/microsoft-sql-server-2005-sp2-reporting-services-integration-with- wss-3-0-and-moss-2007.aspx   <---SharePoint Blog Group     Basically my setup is as follows:   Server 1 = SharePoint 2007 Server 2 = SQL Server Reporting Services SP2 / SharePoint 2007 services Server 3 = Database   Server1 is setup and running SharePoint 2007 fine with no problems. It was installed under the complete option with its own server farm. Then with the Server2, SharePoint 2007 is installed again, also under the complete complete option, and configured to join Server1's server farm. In this way, Server2 is able to supply Server1 with services and it has been said that if you are using 2 different servers, one for SharePoint and one for Reporting Services, you need to have an instance of SharePoint on the reporting services box. With a SharePoint "front-end" the reporting-services now has a way to also join Server1s farm.   This is where the headache be

re: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Add-in for Microsoft SharePoint Technologies

To have access to the webpart "report viewer for sql server reporting services" you can of course install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Add-in for Microsoft SharePoint Technologies. My question though is, does your SharePoint 2007 server have to be running in integrated mode so as to be able to install and use the report viewer web part? Thanks.

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

Rendering Reports in Reporting Services 2008 in Sharepoint Integrated Mode


I have created a site collection using the Report Center template. I successfully deployed my VS2008 Reporting Servivces project to the Sharepoint site. However, when I goto the reports library and attempt to run a report I get "unknown error" message"

Also, I can create a dashboard consisting of one of my reports. However, when I attempt to view the reports via the dashboard, I get the following error message:

An error occurred during client rendering.

The target location you specified is not supported by the report server. A report definition (.rdl), report model (.smdl), resource, or shared data source (.rsds) file must be located within a library or a folder within it.

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. In this article, the authors build a Web-based OLAP reporting app using ASP.NET, OWC, and SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to illustrate the process.

Reporting Services in SharePoint integration - configurtion errors in 64bit version



We have build an MOSS 2007 environment on 64 bit servers. We build the reporting services server and configured in SharePoint integration mode. Initially configuration looks fine with reporting services integration with green indicators.


After creating a web application and accessing the web site from the report servor, i have found the following errors:


Server Error in '/' Application.

Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Could not load file or assembly 'RSSharePointSoapProxy, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot fi

RDL Rendering (500 Internal Server) Error at Sharepoint Integrated Reporting Service


I have a serious problem that cannot be solved by googling around the keywords below:
sharepoint, moss 2007, reporting service, ssrs 2008, rendering, internal server error, ....

The error is;

"An error occurred during client rendering. The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error. "

Everything is O.K.;

* When I render the report from the REPORTSERVER (http://localhost/ReportServer)
* When the reports are scheduled to be sent by the reporting service (planned via MOSS 2007) 

But if I open (render) the RDL file from the sharepoint REPORTS LIBRARY interface, all of the reports fail with that internal error message above. 

It is weird also that parametrized reports are displayed without errors although the parameters are queried from a sql dataset. But I got the error when rendering the report after I've chosen a parameter  and order "apply/report"...

Possible causes how I met that error may be;

After I have installed (then uninstalled) AJAX extensions
After I have re-configured IIS Web Service Extensions list items

Possible solution alternatives I've found;

I've found a solution on MSDN replying a similar issue with an ideal cause of the error but an evreka answer but no sol
