Sharepoint/SSRS: The full path must be less than 260 characters long RRS feed

  • Question

  • Question: I setup a dual server Sharepoint deployment with SSRS and now I keep getting the error like the one below when I try to save a report or a datasource on the server:

    The path of the item 'http://intranet/sharepoint/CompanyReports/MyReports' is not valid. The full path must be less than 260 characters long; other restrictions apply. If the report server is in native mode, the path must start with slash.

    I'm looking into permissions but this happens regardless of authentication I select on the client end.

  • Well, I opened a ticket with MS Support and it turns out the farm servers were not communicating because I made the silly mistake of thinking my two servers were on the same farm, when they weren't.

    I have a separate frontend of Sharepoint running on my Reports Server.  And on that server, reports work fine, and I do not get the error above.  We now just need to join the Reports Server to the farm.  We need both servers to be on the -exact- same version of Sharepoint, so I will be doing that tomorrow after we do the standard post-upgrade reboot of the production SQL server.
