Running Reports from a SSRS Scale-Out instance

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :

Hi to all,

First of all, thanks for the good information that usually all of us can find here to solve our problems with SQL.

Now I'm going to try to explain my problem. Following some of the Q&A published here, I have installed a SSRS Scale-Out environment with 2 SSRS Web instances and an external SSRS DB repository. After that, I have published some rdl files without any kind of problems.

The problem that I found is the following, if in one of my SSRS Web instances I call to the report using localhost (http://localhost:9000/Reports/Pages/Report.aspx?ItemPath=%2fMy+Reports%2fEQUIPOS_HW+-+RMA), the report works perfectly and I can see the data obtained from an OLAP cube in SSAS, but if I call to the report using any other way to call to the system (example: IP, hostname, etc. -->, I receive this kind of error:

  • Error al procesar el informe. (rsProcessingAborted)

SSRS asking for credentials while reports running for long time.


We have a report which executes a stored procedure and it runs for 10 minutes.  After running for 5 minutes, the report keeps asking for username and password for 3 times and redirects to unauthorized page.  The website uses WIDE IP for crash and recovery handling, so it has two nodes.  Could some one please help me to figure out what problem it is ?  The SP data is not huge, which produces only 300 odd rows and 20+ columns.


Any help will be appreciated.  Thanks.

SSRS 2008 R2 running in SharePoint 2010 Integration mode - Not able to schedule reports.



I am unable to schedule report am getting following error when trying to schedule an SSRS report from ReportViewer Webpart in SharePoint 2010.

  • The current action cannot be completed. The user data source credentials do not meet the requirements to run this report. Either the user data source credentials are not stored in the report server database, or the user data source is configured not to require credentials but the unattended execution account is not specified. (rsInvalidDataSourceCredentialSetting)

I have SSRS 2008 R2 running in SharePoint 2010 Integration mode on Win 2008 R2 System.

I have also setup the unattended execution account from the Reporting Services Configuration Manager, which has appropriate privilates on the database to generate report.

Also, I have reporting webservice setup @ following url (am using the named instance of SQL Server):


Am able to view the report from report viewer webpart but unable to schedule it.

Kindly let me know what's going wrong.

Thanks in Advance,

Our client has a SharePoint (moss2007) site on Windows 2008, SQL2008 R2 Enterprise, and Reporting service is integrated with SharePoint

The authentication on the share point integration is set to windows, else the authentication for the SSAS datasource gives and error

The extranet zone ( forms) and intranet (Customer Forms) and default (Windows) zones are all access from inside the firewall and the reports render in each with no issues, as the datasources are configured to pass a sql username and password.

However, report rendering is a problem from the internet (external site), the following error is displayed:

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

Schedule reports with integrated authentication SSRS 2008

Hi All,  Having an issue with SSRS 2008 at the moment, trying to setup subscriptions. Our system is configured so that any one of 10 users can login to the SSRS website using their windows domain account, and then launch report builder to design and save reports.  This all works very well, however, they have a problem when trying to setup subscriptions - the famous "Subscriptions cannot be created because the credentials used to run the report are not stored....." What the message says is true - the credentials are not stored as they are supplied by the user when they login to report builder. Is the /any/ workaround at all that doesn't involve storing the credentials?  It seems totally crazy that they cannot be prompted for them when setting up the subscription.  For this application its 100% essential to make the user provide their credentials when running reports, because they each see a filtered subset of the data in the report model (this is controlled DB side depeding on the login account), so their domain account needs to be passed to SQL server to enable this filtering to work.  If we saved their credentials then they would see all the data..and thats nasty. The only workaround I can come up with would be to create  a separate datasource for each user and upload a separate model, but thats really nasty to be hones

How to programmatically hide SSRS reports

I've built a process to deploy several reports to SSRS in either native mode or SharePoint integrated mode.  I'd like to programmatically hide several SSRS reports when deploying them to a sharepoint site.  I believe I need to do something like this -  http://www.mssqltips.com/tip.asp?tip=1357.  Any pointers?  I'm new to SharePoint development. Thx.

SSRS 2008 SP1 - Enabling "My Reports" allows users delete reports in folders they should not be able

Issue: Users that have “My Reports” SSRS Role assigned to them can delete reports in other “shared” folders. My understanding was that they will be able to do the tasks specified only  in the “My Reports” workspace not everywhere. I have “My Reports” enabled via SSMS. Users have “My Reports” role assigned to them at the root level. My SSRS Role “My Reports” has only the following tasks assigned: 1.       View Reports 2.       Manage reports 3.       View Folders 4.       Manage Folders To test, I'm using Development version of SQL Server 2008 SP1. Thanks in advance, Martina

Migrating from Crystal Reports to SSRS

Hi, we are currently evaluating SSRS and its features for making a decision on migrating from Crystal. I have read up on SSRS a bit and just need some confirmation on some of my findings. My company develops Windows applications, distributable via MSI files. The backend is SQL Server 2008. We are currently using Crystal Reports to display reports to the end user using the Crystal .NET viewer control. Crystal Reports are saved as .rpt files and contained in the msi file, therefore deployed to the clients. As we are considering migrating away from Crystal, I had a look at SSRS. It is my understanding that there are two ways of using reports: First, in local mode, which is similar to the way Crystal works: Client-side deployed report files. However, unlike Crystal, the application has to retrieve the data for the report from the database and pass a dataset to the viewer control whereas in Crystal, you just point the report viewer to the database you want to use and it pulls the data itself. The other mode, remote or server mode, has the reports stored in the report server (i.e. SQL Server). The viewer control will be set to the URL of the report, and the report then pulls the data from the SQL database. I am unsure to how you could deploy reports onto the Report Server using a MSI package; it sounds like quite a bit of work as the only way I have found by now is to consume webs

SSRS 2008- redirect to /Reports virtual directory?

We have just configured a new SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 server. So far, everything is going well, with the exception of one thing: we want anyone who hits the root of the webserver to be redirected to the /Reports virtual directory. So, if the user enters http://servername.domain.com/ it would redirect to http://servername.domain.com/reports. In SSRS 2005, it was easy to configure IIS to do this, but with SSRS 2008, I cannot figure out how to make this change. Help?
