Reporting Services doesn't connect to database automatically

Hello. I use Windows 2003 R2 x64 and SQL Server 2005 x64.  The problem is: if the Reporting Services Service were doesn't start automatically, despite the set up parameter "Restart Automatically" every 1 minute in the service Recovery property. So every minute after Service stopped i recieve an error in Event Viewer: Report Server (MSSQLSERVER) cannot connect to the report server database However, after starting it manually from Computer Management->Services or Reporting Services Configuration Tool it starts normally without any error. I use local system admin account to start Services and to connect to Database. Both parameters are set using RS Configuration Tool. Will be thankful for any advice.

Error installing SharePointRS (Reporting Services AddIn)



I trying to install the SharePointRS AddIn on the SharePoint-Maschine. The installation runs and after the setup does something, it rollback the installation and informs me with just a message, that it was not successful. After searching for the installation log, I've found it in my temp folder. The error was:
"Install error: The 'Mapping' start tag on line 83 does not match the end tag of 'ByExtension'. Line 139, position 7.".
What means this error? How can I solve it?

HTTP 401: Unauthorized when trying to specify reporting services for integration, cannot connect to




I am trying to install reporting services and join it into existing service farm.

Main  MOSS 2007 is on one pc, with config bases etc, while reporting services, reporting services db will be on other pc. 

We are using same domain account to run sharepoint services and reporting services. 

I've installed web part of MOSS on that other computer, also reporting services and sql server, set reporting services in integration mode.

Either way, it wont work for me:


If i am running the service of reporting services as Network Service account, then the /reportserver page will complain about some generic error "probably you dont have access to the farm if you are in integrated mode" etc.... 

I've read that i should include networkservice into a group WSS_WPG which i did, no luck anyway, same error

If i try to type the adress into the integration with reporting services in moss admin page, i will get error like "expected xml received html" and alot of red text.


If i switch service to run from domain account (the one that is used for running sharepoint on the domain) (we did the spn thing, didnt work either), the /reportserver page will open

Unable to install SP3 on SQL 2005 due to Database Services language being blank

Hi all,   I have an issue that requires me to upgrade to a later SP (currently on RTM), but when I try to install SP3 Database Services cannot be ticked. Upon inspection I see that its reporting "This update requires language ENU.  The language for this product instance MSSQLSERVER is . Download the upadte for langage .", when I check teh Language field to the right it is blank, other parts however are fine and can be upgraded. Can you advise please as I don't know how to manually set the language (which is reported inside SQL itself as English (United Kingdom)) and I cannot un/reinstall. Thanks, John

"An error occurred during printing. (0x8000405)" eror - reporting services issue

We are getting this error: "An error occurred during printing. (0x8000405)" from time to time - 70% of the time when we are trying to use a printer button within report manager. It happens if we preview report or just print it. We noticed if we restart RS services, the error will stop for a little bit and then starts again. We don't print that much and it will come back after just a few reports printed. Let me know if you had a similar issue. thanks!

Intermittent SharePoint database connect error on SQL cluster

SQL 2008 Cluster has two SQL instances. Two separate SharePoint farms are "connected" with each SQL instance. SharePoint frontend servers eventlog is flooded with "unable to connect with database.." kind of errors for few minutes during diferent time interval. This erros occurs at the same time on both SharePoint farms. (Note that both SharePoint farm doesn't share any info, that is, each farm is running independantly). Someone suggests SQL box has some bandwidth/network issue. Enabled SQL trace. But not sure how to analyze. Can someone help? Thanks in advance    

"The Database Engine instance you selected is not valid for this edition of Reporting Services" erro

Hi there, I have developed some reports using Visual Studio and everything worked fine in the office. Now I'm trying to deploy them on my customer PCs but this process keeps failing. These reports can be built and even previewed within Visual Studio but they cannot be deployed. Here is the error message I get: ----------------------------------------- The feature: "The Database Engine instance you selected is not valid for this edition of Reporting Services. The Database Engine does not meet edition requirements for report data sources or the report server database." is not supported in this edition of reporting services. ---------------------------------------- The versions of the software on my customer machines are: SQL Server Enterprise 9.0.3282 SQL Server 2005 Management Studio 9.00.4035 SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Designers 9.00.4035.00 Visual Studio 2005 8.0.50727.42 I believe that changing the edition of the Reporting Services from Designers to Enterprise should fix the deployment error but I did not find a way or setup files to do so. Many thanks in advance for your help!
