Connecting to SQL Server Reporting services using SQL Server Management Studio

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


I have problem connecting to reporting services from SSMS, it used to work before, but recently in the rsreportserver.config file <UrlRoot>http........</UrlRoot> was changed to a different one. After that I had problem connecting to reporting services. We need that URL retained in the config file, if anyone know any work around to get into SSRS, please let me know.

I am getting an error that, the remote name could not be resolved: 'xxxxx.xxx.com' (Here it is showing the new URL that is in the config file)

We are using Reporting Services 2005

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.

How to connect to local instance of SQL Server 2008 Management Studio Express ?


I just installed SQL Server 2008 Management studio Express on my Vista machine.

i tried connecting to local machine using :

.\sqlexpress, (local)\sqlexpress, or .\SQLExpress, MyPCNAME\SQLExpress

nothing is working, getting this error:

Cannot connect to PC-NAME\SQLEXPRESS. A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

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.

SQL Server Management Studio Slow Grid Draw and Refresh

I've istalled SQL2005/SSMS on my development machine and connecting to a local SQL Server 2005. Executing queries is fast but the results grid populating is slow and so is the refresh of the same data. This is not a slow query, its the gridview draw/redraw. I've other PC's with slower processors and less ram with the same software run circles around the SMSS Performance on this Laptop   I've read posts about nvidia graphics drivers and mouse drivers causing issues similar to this. I do have an nvidia quadro x1600M (this is a laptop Compaq 8710w) and switching off the accelerator using Displays/Advanced/Troubleshooting by moving the slider to the middle/center position causes the gird refresh to dramatically increase. It's funny how turning oof the accelerator increases performance.   I have the latest HP nvidia drivers and SSMS is useable without hardware acceleration  but I also develop software that uses directx and its getting really troublesome to work this way.   I am running:   Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_qfe.070227-2300)Language: English (Regional Setting: English)System Manufacturer: Hewlett-PackardSystem Model: HP Compaq 8710wBIOS: EPP runtime BIOS - Version 1.1 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     T7300  @ 2.00GHz (2 CPUs)Memory: 3072MB RAMPage File: 515MB used, 4439MB availableWindows Dir: C:\WIN

Please Help Installing SQL Management Studio (not Express) w/ local SQL Server Express

I have recently formatted my hard drive and over the past few days I've been reloading my software.  I have installed on my machine SQL Server Express 2005 SP3.  I prefer to have SQL Express running on my development machine because that is what my customers primarily use.  I also have a full MSDN license, and I would need to install SQL Management Studio 2005.  However, when I download the SQL Server 2005 Developer ISO from MSDN, and run the setup file I get an error message that states: Installation of Microsoft SQL Server Native Client failed because a higher version already exists on the machine.  To proceed, uninstall the higher version and then run Microsoft SQL Server Native Client Setup. I would assume the problem is that the copy of SQL Server - Dev Edition that is available through my MSDN subscription is using an earlier version of SQL Server 2005 (most likely the version prior to SP1.)  I would just unistall SQL Server Express 2005 SP3 and reinstall it with out any service pack updates.  The problem is that I also see within my Add or Remove Programs list  four SQL Server 2008 R2 entries, that I believe were installed when I installed Visual Studio Pro 2010 (they are, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Data-Tier Application Framework, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Data-Tier Application Project, Microsoft SQL Server 20

Can't connect to SQL 2005 Enterprise using Management Studio with Server Name (only (local) works

This is a test system, everything running locally & no domains. Win 2003 Ent. Server & SQL Server 2005 Enterprise. I can't log into SQL Server Management Studio using the server name & using either Windows Authentication or SQL login. If I change the name of the server in the drop-down list to "(local)", I connect just fine (both Windows & SQL security modes). Shared Memory, Named Pipes & TCP/IP enabled in both server & client. Remote connections allowed. I have IP adresses (both & external IP) in my hosts file pointing to the server name. Does SQL require a DNS server? This wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that I can't install SQL 2005 SP3 due to authentication failure since there's no way to enter (local) as the server name. SQL tools (management studio, SP install) seem to see the SQL server running but won't authenticate the user through any means other than setting server name to (local). This is driving me crazy!!!
