SSRS reports are being developed by a team. The data sources are already created in the /Data Sources folder on the production server. Developers have been promised slow, painful torture if they overwrite the production DS's with development.

When attempting to deploy from within Visual Studio, the error "The item '/Data Sources' already exists" pops up and deployment halts.

Yes, the "Overwrite Data Sources" deployment configuration parameter is set to FALSE.

Is there a workaround?
