SharePoint 2010 Audit Log Reports Error

SharePoint 2010 Audit Log Reports Error

When a "Content Viewing" report is run an I/O error is thrown and the report is not successful. This is the error that is found in ULS log:

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

Has anyone had experience with this error? Is there a known fix for this?

Hi SneekCo,
is only this specific report affected or also other audit log reports?
Which SharePoint version (service pack / cumulative update) and edition?
Which SQL server version / edition?
How does your SharePoint farm look alike (single, three-tier ...)?

Hello Rainer,

Here is some more information.

SharePoint 2010 Standard
SP 1,cu-Dec2011(2597014)
MS SQL Standard Server 2008 R2 (64bit) Service Pack 1      10.50.2500.0

The issue is on one site collection only. The report is "Content Viewing". The other reports within that site collection work fine. This is a moderate site with about 750 users.

This report has worked before, but stopped working a few weeks ago. Not sure where to go from here with it. ULS shows the com component error as well as an I/O error.

Many Thanks

Never solved this. The workaround was to create a custom report, under audit log reports. The user was happy!
