Problem viewing reports in reporting services.

Morning all,

I'm having this wee problem with reporting services that I seem unable to solve, and there seems to be very little help regarding it. I've developed reports connecting to a cube in VS 2005, I'm able to preview the reports in the VS environment with no problem at all, I then deploy the solution to another server and when I click on one of the reports to view it, I get the following error:

An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
Cannot create a connection to data source 'CUBE-LOCALHOST'. (rsErrorOpeningConnection)
A connection cannot be made. Ensure that the server is running.
Unable to read data from the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.
An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

I have tried the following:

1. Selected Credentials stored securely in the report server, and entered in my domain username and password (I am an administrator on server machine), and checked Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source - I get the same error message.

2. Selected Credentials are not required, and set the Execution account details to be the same in Reporting Services Configuration, and get the following error message:

An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
Cannot create a connection to data source 'CUBE-LOCALHOST'. (rsErrorOpeningConnection)
Non-Windows user credentials were supplied for a non-http connection to Analysis Services. The Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services data extension requires Windows Integrated Security unless connecting via http or https.

3. Set up a new user with admin rights on the server, and followed the steps above - pretty much the same results.

4. Ensured that Remote Connections was set to local and remote connections for Analysis services in SQL Server 2005 Surface Area Configuration for services and connections.

I'm sort of at a loss at this stage, any recommendations and suggestions would be most welcome.

Regards,
R.

Is the CUBE really...literal located at the: LOCALHOST .... location...???

Where is the cube located...on the SAME server as REPORTING SERVICES OR ON ANOTHER SERVER..?

Hi CRX,

Yep the Cube is on localhost, which is on the same server as reporting services, it is a bit misleading as it's only the name I chose to give it...and I just noticed my problem, I'm an eejit! The name of the server computer is 19 characters long, but only the first 15 characters seem to used as my SQL Server name, I was using the server computer name - I didn't kop that at all. I'll award the points for...pointing me in the right direction - as I slink off into the darkness!

Thanks,
R.
