SSRS 2008: connection failure, timeout or low disk condition within the database. (rsReportServerDat

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


I have started getting this error since a week now when I try to schedule a report or change a schedule of a report. 

An error occurred within the report server database. This may be due to a connection failure, timeout or low disk condition within the database. (rsReportServerDatabaseError) Get Online Help For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors 


We have SQL Server 2008 installed along with SSRS running on the server. I have never seen this happening before for almost a year now but suddenly it appeared.  Along with this, report subscription is also messed up and some report are not been emailed as they have a error like:

Failure sending mail: An error occurred within the report server database. This may be due to a connection failure, timeout or low disk condition within the database.Mail will not be resent. 


I am not sure what caused this but if anyone has any idea of what is going on it will be great. 


Thanks you for your help. 

Please reply soooon !!!

SQL Database Connection Timeout

How do you modify the default 15 second timeout Connection Timeout on SQL databases in SQL 2005, for all users? I am able to modify the value on an individual basis through the options menu on the SQL Server 2005 login window however when signing on as a different user the changes do not carry to that users profile.

Problems with SSRS 2008 Install when configuring a back-end database on a SQL Server 2008 R2 environ

We are tyring to configure SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS 2008) not the R2 version with a SQL Server 2008 R2 version of database. We are facing error when the configuration manager within SSRS tries to execute its scripts against the database. Do you think that SSRS 2008 may have trouble using a SQL Server 2008 R2 version as the back-end? Also, what kind of permissions does the ID installing SSRS needs to have on the SQL Server database ?  Not much is available in the documenation or online.

Getting "Provider load failure" from SSRS Configuration Manager (SQL 2008 R2 Hot Fix CU3 did not fix

After upgrading our SQL 2008 cluster to R2, SSRS on one node works fine, but the second node will not allow connection via the Configuration Manager (getting "Provider load failure").  We've done re-installs, repairs and applied Hot Fix CU3, but the issue remains. NOTE: It's understood that SSRS is not a clustered resource.  We have it installed as separate instances on each of the two cluster nodes.

I can't get Reporting Services to work with Sharepoint.

I've followed the instructions for installation of Reporting Service in SharePoint Integrated Mode, and completed the indicated steps on the SharePoint Central Administration Site successfully.  When I try to create a page with a Reporting Services Webpart, I get the following error:


Invalid object name 'History'.
An error occurred within the report server database.  This may be due to a connection failure, timeout or low disk condition within the database. (rsReportServerDatabaseError)


I have SQL 2008 R2, SharePoint Enterprise 2010, and Report Builder 3.0.  SQL and Sharepoint are installed on the same server.

I'm certain that there isn't a disk or timeout problem, so I'm assuming that it's a connection failure, but don't know what steps to take to troubleshoot and correct this.


installing SSRS 2008 R2 on a separate machine than the SS 2008 R2 database



I set up SQL Server 2008 R2 along with SSRS on a Windows 2008 server--let's call it "SQLDB"--and all's working fine.  I'm able to upload reports that are pulling data from the SQLDB databases.  There is no problem.

However, the operations dept. now tells me that a server with SQL Server installed absolutely will not be made available to the users and so I will need a separate SSRS 2008 R2 server (named "SQLRS") that pulls data from SQLDB databases.  Basically, I need to stop using SSRS on SQLDB and start using SSRS on SQLRS.  Makes sense to me, although I've never done this.

I'm confused about what services and components of SQL Server 2008 R2 need to be installed on which server(s).  Could somebody please point me to a page that explains it thoroughly or, if it's fairly simple, explain it for me here? 

For instance, "SQLDB" has SSAS, SSIS, database engine, SQL Browser, Management Tools, and SQL Agent installed. 

On "SQLRS", I installed SSRS, database engine, SQL Agent, SQL Browser, Management Tools, and SQL Agent.  Was it necessary to install the database engine, considering the data to be pulled is on "SQLDB"?  I read that the Agent is only required for subscriptions, but what about SQL Browser?  Is it only required on s

SSRS 2008 Data Driven Subscription Timeout Error



I have a report that pulls data from an SSAS 2008 cube.  The report does take a few minutes to run, as it is grabbing a lot of data.  The report is published to our sharepoint website, with stored credentials.  When I run this report manually on the sharepoint site, it works fine.  However, when I try to create a data driven subscription, it gives me the following error: Error: Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.  I've looked through the SSRS log file, and it basically just repeats this error.  I've also run SQL Server profiler, and I can see that all of the queries that populate the parameters run successfully, but then there are no more queries sent.  So, it seems that the connection is fine, but the data driven subscription has another timeout value that is causing the problem.  All of the datasets have a timeout = 0, so that is not the issue. 

I've also run a different data driven subscription using a smaller report (based on the same cube though), and it works fine.  Any thoughts on what I need to do to fix this?

sql server 2008 adventureworks database


dear Friends

For my MCTS 70 -433 examination, I recently installed sql server 2008 and installed the sample databases too. but my issue is, in that book they have mentioned a database called "AdventureWorks2008" and the nice thing is I don't have a such a database with me in my sql server 2008. 

And the query is 

-- MERGE Statement
USE AdventureWorks2008
MERGE INTO	Sales.SalesOrderDetailHistory AS SODH
USING Sales.SalesOrderDetail AS SOD
ON SODH.SalesOrderID = SOD.SalesOrderID
AND SODH.SalesOrderDetailID = SOD.SalesOrderDetailID
INSERT (LineTotal, SalesOrderID, SalesOrderDetailID, CarrierTrackingNumber, OrderQty
, ProductID, SpecialOfferID, UnitPrice, UnitPriceDiscount
, rowguid, ModifiedDate, Cancelled)
VALUES(LineTotal, SalesOrderID, SalesOrderDetailID, CarrierTrackingNumber, OrderQty
, ProductID, SpecialOfferID, UnitPrice, UnitPriceDiscount
, rowguid, ModifiedDate, DEFAULT)
UPDATE SET SOHD.Cancelled = 'True'
OUTPUT $action , inserted.* ;	

Please help me to overcome this issue and let me know where can I download that database too.

Thanking you

happy Coding

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

SQL 2008 servers and MOSS 2007 with SSRS


I need help figuring out the limitations in a multi-database server environment and MOSS 2007 installation with SSRS.  Here is the run down:

  • I currently have MOSS 2007 server with backend on SQL 2005, which also acts as the SSRS server.  In addition I have another SQL 2005 server where business data resides and against which most of the SSRS reports run.
  • Future plan (over which I don't really have a say) is MOSS 2007 with backend on SQL 2008, which will remain to be the SSRS server.  The second SQL server with business data will be migrated to SQL 2008 R2.

Questions: does this architecture requires SSRS 2008 add-in or SSRS 2008 R2 add-in (integrated mode)?  Will there be an issue of building SSRS 2008 reports that go after SQL 2008 R2 and SQL 2008 data mix?
