Getting SSRS 2005 to work on Server 2008 R2

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I reinstalled SQL Server 2005 x64 Standard Edition SP3 on a Server 2008 R2 box and installed IIS and SSRS as well.  SQL runs fine. SSRS is installed all configs look good, but I cannot get it accessible via the browser (//localhost/ReportServeror //localhost/Reports). 

I have tried both 32 & 64 defaults in IIS AppPools and each gives me an error and I can't find any other resources as to what the problem is?

32-bit setting is giving me this error on /ReportServer:

Could not load file or assembly 'ReportingServicesNativeClient, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91' or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.

64-bit setting is giving me this error on /ReportServer:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error, Error Code 0x800700c1

32 & 64-bit setting are both giving me this error on /Reports:

HTTP Error 401.2 - Unauthorized, Error Code0x80070005

Export PDF in ssrs 2008 vs ssrs 2005 - pdf is different, won't work with itextsharp (possibly other

We're migrating from SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008. We use itextsharp (a pdf processing library) to merge different PDF outputs into one large PDF file. This was working brilliantly in SSRS 2005, but in SSRS 2008, itextsharp *can* open and parse the PDF, but itext sees the "content" section of the PDF pages as blank. So, the resulting composite PDF ends up being a series of blank pages. Acrobat 9 and a couple other PDF tools (tested linux Evince and win GIMP) seem to be able to open the SSRS 2008-generated PDF fine, but the java-version of itext, and the .net version of itext (itextsharp) see nothing but blanks.
So, I realize this points to a problem with itext, but I'm curious if anyone else is merging PDFS outputed from SSRS 2008, and what PDF tools/libraries they are using.

Much thanks!

SQL Server 2008: Replication of IndexedView does not work correct anymore(did work in sql 2005)




I am encountering a problem with replication of an indexed view.

My current flow works fine on SQL Server 2005 (enterp.) But is does not work anymore on SQL Server 2008 (enterp.)



On my server(server1), i receive 2 tables via replication from another server(server0). (lets name them tTest1 and tTest2)

I create an indexed view based on those 2 tables. (lets name it idxvTest)

This indexed view(idxvTest) is then replicated to another server(server2), and materialized as a table (tTestidxv).

Any changes made to the tables on server0, are replicated via server1 to server2.


The above situation worked fine in SQL 2005.

However in SQL 2008, i don't get any error messages in the replication, and everything seems to work fine..

But as it appears, changes entered at server0 are being replicated to server1, also the view idxvTest looks fine, but the data is not updated/inserted on the table at server2(tTestidxv)!!

Note: initial setup of the replication from server1 to server2 works correctly, and the snapshot is also delivered. Only the updates after the snapshot don't come through.

softwares required / installation steps for using SSRS 2008 along with SQL server 2005 as DataSource



I want to use SSRS 2008 to develop reports, but SQL server 2005 should be used as datasource, so I assume that,

1) MS Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008 should be installed to get SSRS 2008 and BIDS

2) SQL server 2005 should be installed and in "Reporting Services Configuration Manager" the Database section should point to SQL server 2005

Please suggest whether the approach is correct or not, if not please give me the correct way to achieve it.

SSRS 2005 external images won't display - images on DIFFERENT file server

Hi, Been having trouble getting external images to display in reports rendered on SSRS 2005. Images are displayed as a red X. However, my scenario is different from some of the examples I have read about. - The images are stored on a file server that is DIFFERENT from the box on which the Report Service is running. For various business reasons I cannot copy the images locally to the Report Service box. I am using "file://fileserver/path/to/image.jpg" to retrieve the images. - Since the file server does not have IIS installed, I cannot access the images using the URL method (http:// access). I need to use the file:// method. Currently I am prototyping this setup on my test box, which is running XP Pro and IIS 5.1. The Report Service is installed on this same box. I am currently testing this through the Report Manager web site (http://servername/Reports). The images are displayed using the Image control, which I added to the report using the visual report designer in Visual Studio 2005. It is set up with source=External and with "file://fileserver/path/to/image.jpg" path values. File names are retrieved from our database and file paths are built dynamically using a data processing extension I have written. My best guess as to why this is happening is that the ASPNET service account on my test box does not have access to the particular share on the file serve

Shared dataset in SSRS 2008 R2 running on SSAS 2005

I am trying to create a report in SSRS 2008 R2 using SSAS 2005 as a datasource. My dataset has a date parameter. When I create an embedded dataset in my report everything works fine, but when I create a shared dataset with the exact same mdx query, I get the following error: An error occurred during local report processing. The definition of the report 'xxxx' is invalid. The Value expression for the report parameter 'DateCalendarHierarchy' contains an error: [BC30034] Bracketed identifier is missing closing ']'. Does anybody have any ideas? Is this a bug? Thanks, Louis

Moving a Copy of SQL Report Server 2005 and Upgrade to 2008

Hello, We have SQL 2005 Report Server in a Windows 2003 64 bit server box. We want to create a copy of this report server database somewhere in the domain, so that we can access it for a different purpose. My question is, will there be any complications with this? I'm thinking about the encryption key that's needed to access the database. If we are successful with this, we might also want to upgrade to SQL 2008. Thanks for your help,   Elizabeth K.
