Hi All Hoping somebody can help

We have SharePoint 2010 Installed on 1 server that also has SQL R2 Installed everything regarding this server is fine.

We needed to install SharePoint Foundation 2010 on a separate server for some testing Purposes and tried to install Reporting Services Integration within Central Administration.

Basically in there I want to point it to our Working setup so that I can pull reports of it, however within Database Access I get the following

There was an error when granting Access for domain\administrator to this share point farm. Some or all identity references could not be translated.

Just to add I have a sharepoint server as mentioned above working fine with SSRS working as well, Basically I have added another server with foundation on it and I need to view reports of it within foundation

I assume SQL 2008 R2?  The server running SSRS must have SharePoint installed and be joined to the farm.  In that case you couldn't have an SSRS instance serving multiple farms.

Ok So just to clarify then

If I were to start From Scratch Using Just SharePoint Foundation And SQL Server 2008 R2 on the same box Using SSRS could I add say a bar chart Using SSRS to a SharePoint page and add some kind of Auto Refresh

Do this two products allow me to do this, I am already doing this using SharePoint but I need to know if Foundation has a Limitation on this

Thanks for your help

I already have a SharePoint Farm Setup with SQL installed on the Same Box and I have no issues using SSRS web parts there.

You said above that SSRS cannot serve Two Farms which makes Sense,

But I was just wondering If SharePoint Foundation can Show SSRS Reports in Real Time

Hence I was trying it Out By Pointing my Foundation Installation to my Existing SQL Server

Yes, SharePoint Server doesn't offer an advantage over Foundation from strictly an SSRS perspective.  If all you are using on your SharePoint Server is an SP-Integrated SSRS instance and the SSRS web parts, you should be able to do the same in Foundation.
