Reporting services error

Posted on 2009-02-22

I'm creating some reports using Business Intelligence Development Studio with Reporting Services from SQL 2005.

When running reports, it works ok most of the time. Sometimes, browser throws out an error message like this

Execution 'vfh1sc451gqeauv4xuncif55'  cannot be found

I've googled around and it seems that this is a timeout problem.

All of my reports run quite fast, none takes more than 20 seconds.

Anyone here know how to fix this?

    this error occurs when user session(reporting services) gets expired, or whenever report is redployed.

    Did you checked reporting services log file, some error must get logged there.

    Thanks cs97jjm3 for your response.

    I had a quick look on the log files doesn't give any further information as the details log hasn't been turned on yet.

    One concern is if this is a session timeout, how comes it occur even in the first time when we run the report (When normal process to first open to display a report takes only 20 seconds). I guess there might be another cause for this issue.

    Anyway, since this is a session expired error, I just wonder if there's any way to catch and re-throw to have a more user-friendly error message.
