SSRS 2005 & SSRS 2008

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi i have some doubt in configuring the web service address for both 2005 & 2008.

I do have 2005 in my system also have installed the trial version of 2008.

Previously i used to deploy reports to localhost/reportserver for 2005 and it was well.

But after deploying 2008 reports to the server <SystemName>:8080/ReportServer_SQL2008, its found that the ocalhost/reportserver to be not working. WHen verifying with its configuration the web service address was left blank (2005).

I tried changing the port number in the 2008 configuration (<SystemName>:8080/ReportServer_SQL2008 to <SystemName>:7979/ReportServer_SQL2008) but the reportserver page is opening where as <SystemName>:7979/Reports_SQL2008 is not opeing saying 'HHTP 04 Bad Request'

Isn't possible to have 2 different adreses to be working for 2 different servers?

if not kindly let me know the configuration to be done for tht..

THanks !!

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

SSRS in place upgrade from 2005 to 2008 issue


I did an inplace upgrade of SSRS 2005 to 2008 and now the reports are throwing the following error. The reports were all working fine and there is a datasource with the name 'Data Source Name' without the '_'.  Please help.

  • An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
    • The data source 'Data_Source_Name' cannot be found. (rsDataSourceNotFound)

SSRS 2005/2008 - Chart with bar graph not generating on subsequent executions of report even with mo


For a report executed from Report Manager that has a bar chart component, regenerating the report via refresh or view with same input parameters either gives a different result that is garbled or an empty chart (2008) or no chart at all (2005). I have the report set up to not do any caching, so that does not seem to be the issue. Is there some chart option I may need to set to get the proper chart display.

Report conversion from SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008


I am converting reports developed in SSRS 2005 into SSRS 2008. In the report design interface I have several rows and columans of data that calculate count or rate. In addition to rows and columns, I have around ten hidden tablixes in which report expression calls hidden codes inside tablix to perform calculation with main report. My problem is when I set hidden tablix propert into hide, I am not getting correct calculation in my report.  when I change tablix property from hidden to show I will get correct calculation but I do not want to see those hidden tablixes in my report page. Is there any way  you can still call expressions inside hidden tablixes without turning on tablix property show in SSRS 2008? Is it a bug in SSRS 2008 reporting system? Please help me out!!

My operating system is windows vista.



SSRS 2005 to 2008 upgrade: exporting to .PDF does not produce the same result


We have recently converted .rdl SSRS 2005 files to SSRS 2008 .rdl files. We do not have SSRS 2008 R2, we are working with the  first release. We are seeing issues when exporing a report to .pdf format:

1) when rendered in HTML, the function that displays page numbers (ie:page 1 of 2) for the report are correct. The standard function "Globals!TotalPages" is used to get the count of pages. We previewed a report in html in reports manager that had 1777 pages. when the report is exported to .pdf the last page displays page 1777 of 1816, even though there is no more pages beyond 1777.

2)When rendering the report in html a value is shown as "Caretaker1" but when exporting to adobe .pdf version 9.3, the same value is shown as "Caretaker2".

3)   One of our issues is

Getting SSRS 2005 to work on Server 2008 R2


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

SSRS 2005 SP3 x64 on Windows 2008 R2


Hi All, I was finally able to configure SSRS 2005 x64 SP3 on Windows 2008 R2 by disabling 32 bit applications.  However, I host other web applications on this server that are 32 bit. 

I am planning to only disable 32 bit apps for the installation of SSRS and then go back and enable it for the applications that need it.  Does anyone know if this will cause issues?  Does anyone run SSRS 2005 x64 on Windows 2008 R2 and also have other 32 bit applications on the same server?



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!

Issues with Migrating SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008


Hi All,

Our Team working on migration of reports. But in our SSRS 2005 reports RDL's they added small piece of code(Highlighted)  in 


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Report xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition">

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.

Upgrade from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 from SharePoint 2007 SSRS 2005 integrated mode


I"m attempting to upgrade from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 R2 x64 Enterprise on a server running Windows Server 2003 x64 Enterprise, SharePoint 2007 Enterprise, and SQL Server 2005 and SSRS 2005 Enterprise running in integrated mode.

I installed the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP2 Reporting Services Add-in for Microsoft SharePoint Technologies from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=35c3a13f-4b5e-4d4a-86e4-07ee307b9638&displaylang=en.

When attempting to install Report Builder 2.0, I get the error "Reporting Services Add-in for SharePoint products and technologies is not installed."

When I try to run a report (existing 2005 reports already deployed), I get the error: "Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object."

Issue while migrating reports from SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008


We developed reports for SSRS 2005 using SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (Visual Studio 2005).


We migrated these reports for SSRS 2008 using SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio (Visual Studio 2008) by opening the Reports project folder in SSRS 2008.


After migration when the report is ran without any changes made in the design mode we get the correct output.


The issue arises when we try to edit the report in the Design mode. In design mode, it shows only 1 'Tablix Filter' Value and loses the rest of the 'Tablix Filter' values. Specifically, If we try and edit the Tablix properties (In Design mode) all the values in the 'Filters' property disappear.

Is Conditional Subscription possible in SSRS 2005?


Hi Guys,

Is there a way to set up a subscription that will send e-mails based on the contents of a report? For example, I want to schedule a daily subscription that will only send an e-mail if the report contains data, otherwise it will do nothing for that day. i.e If the report has more than one row, it should send the mail otherwise it should not send the mail.....

Is it possible in SSRS 2005 or is there any other way to do it???


SSRS 2005 "Mixed" Authentication Mode


I have a web application where users can authenticate using either SiteMinder or Windows domain accounts.  This is actually configured as two separate virtual directories within IIS 6.  Both applications need to use the same instance of SSRS.  Is it possible to configure the SSRS web application so that if a user is authenticated by SiteMinder it impersonates a Windows account, but if they are already Windows-authenticated that account is used instead?

SSRS 2008 R2 and sharepoint 2007 report builder problems


I upgraded our enterprise sql server 2008 to sql server 2008 r2 last weekend.  Along with this i installed the report builder 3.0 on the servers as well and the updated ssrs add in for sharepoint.  The upgrade went fine, no errors that i could find.  The problem is now when i go to a library that has the report builder content type enabled and click report builder report under new it does not load report builder 3.0.

I updated the custom report builder url in central administration from /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_2_0_0_0.application to /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.application

however when i do click the new report builder report it kicks me over to http://company.com/ReportServer_MossEnt  which itemizes out each individual sharepoint site in the farm.

Is the integration of ssrs 2008 r2, sharepoint 2007 and report builder 3.0 work?  did i install the wrong version of the report builder add in?  The above is the only problem i am having now.

all servers are server 2008, 64 bit and moss 2007 enterprise with sp2 & april 2010 cu
