Help MS Reporting Services: Value does not fall within the expected range" error

Hi,

Background:
A customer's DBA rcently moved MS SQL Server 2005 DB files belong to our database from LUN to another last week. This customer has MS reporting services 2005 installed and a report server configured, that contain reports reporting on data from that database. The report server database is also on that DB server, which is local to that machine.

My problem.
Since our database files were moved, none of the reports work via the report server. I get the following error:

Value does not fall within the expected range" error

It is like the report server has lost it's connection with its database.

Points to observe:
1. MS SQL Server 2005 database is up and running fine.
2. The Report Server DB files were NOT moved, just the DB files belong to our database that the reports report from.
3. The reports execute fine within Visual Studio Development environment, but fail when deployed.
4. I tried re-deploying them again but they still fail with the same error.
5. All database, IIS and reporting services services are running. I tried re-starting them all and nothing changed.
6. Reporting Services Configuration reports that all is ok.

I have no idea what else to do. Can anyone help? All was working fine until our database files were moved to the new drive. Coincidence?

Many thanks,

Iain

Probably not, Have you tested the data source within the reports package?

Yes. The datasource works fine. I redeployed that too.

Is there a config file or something that may need altering? I am finding it hard to undestand from the outset how this has effected the report server.

when you tried to redploy did you just try overwriting them? Also within BIDS do teh reports run ok in that environment is it just when they are running from teh report manager?

if this is teh case then delete the report first... keep refereshing until its deleted..... and then try redploying teh report... sometimes teh overwrite doesnt work in this case.

if that fails please can you advise if this is a sharepoint integrated solution or stand alone native SSRS

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hi,

No, I deleted first. I will try it again.

It is standalone.

Reports run fine within BIDS, when previewing!

One thing I should mention. The DPA moved the project folder, containing the reports etc., to the new drive too. I moved it back to the original drive path and it didn't make a difference.

Solved. They had moved the dir Inetpub to another drive too. I brought it back, restarted the services and it worked. Thanks to all who helped.
