Hello,

I am getting the following error message when attempting to create a new data source in report manager.  However, I can create the same data source via Sql Server Data Tools.  I've confirmed that the allow remote connections to the sql server has been checked.  I've also attached a screen shot of the settings I am using.  I've also confirmed the server instance name

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

Are you modifying a deployed datasource from Data Tools or you're making it from scratch? I would recommend you upload/deploy the datasource from visual studio/DT and then go to RM to see it under datasources.

Ok try right clicking on the working one in DT and deploying. Then find it in RM and edit and test connection with username an pass.

I found the problem.  I removed the braces that surrounded the server name and instance name in
Data Source=JUANVELASQUEZ\MSSQL2012;Initial Catalog=Galactic

The book example I am using has braces.  So I removed the braces as shown above and it works.
Data Source={JUANVELASQUEZ\MSSQL2012};Initial Catalog=Galactic
