SharePoint Usage Reporting Quick Poll Question

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I've got a very quick poll question for any DBAs out there who utilize SharePoint Usage Reporting.


Would you rather view your SP Usage Reports inside SharePoint itself, or have them emailed to you once per day/week/month in a PDF or Office formats?

Problem while configuring SharePoint Usage Reporting

Hello all.    I was given an already developed MOSS 2007 (Standard) web application, up and running, and I was requested to activate the usage reporting services. So, I did a little search and found the following article that explains just how to do what I want:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262541(office.12).aspx As I go through the article, I come across this step on the "Enable usage reporting" section:  "On the SSP home page, in the Office SharePoint Usage Reporting section, click Usage reporting." So, now I notice that I don't have a Shared Service Provider and I can't go on with the aforementioned article. Alright, I did a little search and found this article:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262649(office.12).aspx Which would guide me through creating a SSP. No problemo. I follow the steps until I reach the 19th: "In the Index Server section, in Index Server, click the server on which you configured the Search service". And yet no option is available for me, and rather displays a "there's no index server" messsage. But hold on, the same article reads: "If there is no index server listed in the Index Server section, then no server in your farm has been assigned the index server role. To assign the index server role to a server in

SharePoint usage reporting - missing data from ANLHit


Hi All,

On our MOSS 2007 farm, knowing about the logging tables for usage reporting which reside in the above table in the SSP database only stores a rolling 31 days worth of data, we have a SQL process that archives this data, ultimatly for reporting in SSAS. I've had a recent query from a business user that has prompted some investigation - there seems to be large chunks of data missing from ANLHist. Taking myself as an example, I know I use our SharePoint platform every working day, and there are others around me that do too, but the reporting does not reflect this - there are large gaps in the data.

My investigations have lead me to Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\Logs, where one would expect to see folder for every site collection. However on one of our two WFEs, there are several missing. It's my understanding that a timer job takes the '00.log' file(s) from this location to populate the ANLHit table.

I've done as much investigation as I am aware of and have drawn blanks, is anyone able to assist in this matter and suggest what the issue may be? I'm not sure if the missing folders are a red herring?

Thanks in advance.

I have configured the SharePoint Production Server(Standalone) with WS 2008 64 bit version, SQL Server 2005 with SP3 , Visual Studio 2008 and MOSS 2007(SP3). I have configured SSRS 2005 in SharePoint integration mode. Everything works fine till the last step. Now, i am trying to install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Add-in for Microsoft SharePoint Technologies feature and failed. I am getting below error message.

Product: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Add-in for Microsoft SharePoint Technologies -- You must first install SharePoint Server before installing SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Add-in for SharePoint Technologies

Any help will be very appreciated!


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
