I am using a report viewer/scheduler program for my Crystal Reports (not InfoView, but another COTS program).

Scheduled reports run fine when the report points to the SQL Server 2005 database on the local machine. Note: This database uses Windows authentication.

Scheduled reports do NOT run when the report points to another server (MS 2008 R2) on our network. The database is SQL Server 2008. It uses SQL Server Authentication.

Also, there are NO errors in the Event Viewer (for either machine) that would pertain to this situation.

Note: I CAN run/test the schedule manually and CAN view the reports on that other server. The problem seems to be with the scheduler's service.

I have set up the service to run using a network user, but this doesn't help.
I am sure this is something simple -- undoubtedly a permissions issue -- but I am stumped!
