you may need to look into ODBC data sources on the computer in question which may give you a clue where the database resides.

I know where the SQL server is, and I have placed the user into the reporting services for this but it still not working, as mentioned I suspect its a share on the server, that why I would like to access the IIS site for this and then see if somewhere it displays this, hence my question how would I be able to see what IIS server this site would be on
Rainer JeschorCommented:
SQL Server Reporting Server / Services is not using IIS - instead it has its own Windows Service which is running its own web server utilizing http.sys (as IIS is doing).
Report Server stores all its contents (data sources, reports ...) inside its report server databases.
If you have enabled the Report Manager web application, you can configure (e.g. permissions) through this web site (which is also hosted by the service).

apologies didn't see this before.
forget IIS.
SQL runs its own services.
If the services are running and you have ODBC configured correctly then it should work.
Are you able to query the DB at all?

My Colleague managed to fix this problem as it was a link pointing to a SharePoint document which needed to allow permissions

Reason is this was A SharePoint share that SQL was pointing to to save the reports, which never had the necessary permissions
