Can not connect to ReportServer. HTTP 404 - File not found

I am running SQL Server 2008 Express.

I notice it did not create the reportserver directory in the Default Web Site.  I read one solution that said to go in Reporting Services Configuration Manager and click on the New button.  I can not find the New button.

I think the original problem was my IIS server was not working right so I reinstalled it.  It is working now.  How do I get Reporting Services to recreate the directories?

Thanks for any help,

Access web database Reports - "file not found" error


The reports section of my Access web databases aren't working - I keep getting a "file not found" error for every database I upload.  I even tested it with the Northwind Web Database sample from MS.  I could see the reports in Access 2010, so I successfully uploaded the template to my SharePoint 2010 Server, and when I clicked on the links to view the Reports - I got the same "file not found" error for this sample database.

Anyone seen this before?



A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer.



  • I created a Report using Business Intelligence Studio. Its working working well, i can able to view records. But when i try to deploy the report an error occurs specifying that "A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer. (Microsoft Report Designer)".
  • I open the IIS 7 and find out virtual directories "Reports" and "ReportServer" are available.
  • I check on the browser and type "http://localhost/reports".  I find the browser direct to this url: http://localhost/reports/Pages/Folder.aspx and find error specifying the following one:

         Error:The report server is not responding. Verify that the report server is running and can be accessed from this computer.

  • when i type http://localhost/reportmanager, i found the error:

    HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found

    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

We have a SQL 2008 SP1 server running on Windows Server 2008R2. It holds the DataWarehouse for our SCOM2007R2 environment.

Testing from localhost also failed, no permissions had been changed.

"Access Denied" and RunwithElevatedPrivilages issue (Yes, I've found the other posts in the Forum)

I just *KNEW* I had found a fix for my issue in the forums at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointdevelopment/thread/c3d2b304-7fcc-40d2-86ce-61d9b21b03d7/ However, I've tried every suggestion made in this thread and *still* get issues in that the 'normal' end user cannot see the form. I have any overly simple form in the layouts folder with a lable and a table. I can write the Site Title to the label, and need to add rows to the table, one for each Site Owner (Full Control user) found for the site. This form will be available to anyone with access to the site. However all I get is: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)) I have confirmed the application pool identity is the correct service account for the farm.  Here is the code I'm using; can anyone advise where I'm stepping on my own toes? protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e) { try { SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges( delegate() { using (SPSite site = SPContext.Current.Site) { site.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true; SPWeb web = SPContext.Current.Web; web.Site.CatchAccessDeniedException = false; thisSiteTitle.Text = web.Title.ToString(); //FindSO(web); //BEGINNING OF COPIED FINDSO CODE writeToEventLog(app, "2", "2"); ArrayList allOwner

Is it possible to access an Analysis Server with Excel via http?

Hi, in our scenario we want to give another company access to out analysis server via web, their front end should be Excel. So first of all I made a setup like descriped here http://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/library/cc917711(en-us).aspx (but I have really no idea how to test it in an easy way because using MDX sample application ends up every time in "The connection either timed out or was lost.") But apart of that, is it possible to access an analysis server with Excel via http? I did not found any possibility to use a http-adresse in Excel as server path. Any ideas? Thanks and regards Peter  

Cannot Access Reports from Computers Within Network




I am able to access reports from my computer that has the SQL Server (2008) installed, but can't seem to access from other computers in the network. All I get is

"The permissions granted to user 'MyComputerName\Guest' are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)"

Can someone please help?

I tried creating user "MyComputerName\Guest" and assign permission to view reports, but still cannot get it to work. Am I doing something wrong?

Here are some details from my Report Services Configuration Manager
