DPM Reporting Error - ConnectionString RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an issue with reports on one of our DPM 2010 servers.  When launching any report it pops up IE Report Viewer and asks for a Log in Name and Password.  After providing the credentials the following error message is displayed:

    An error occurred during client rendering.

    • An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
      • Cannot create a connection to data source 'DLS'. (rsErrorOpeningConnection)
        • The ConnectionString property has not been initialized.


    Any ideas where to check the connectionstring or how to fix this issue?

  • Hi,

    Open a web browser then:

    Connect to: http://localhost/Reports_MSDPM2010/Pages/Folder.aspx
    Click on: DPMREPORTS
    Click on: DPMReporterdataSource
    Ensure: "Enable this data source"  is checked.
    Data Source Type:  Microsoft SQL Server
    Connection string: data source="Computer_Name\MSDPM2010";persist security info=False;initial catalog=DPMDB

    Where Computer_name = actual computer name.

  • Thank you Mike.  That was exactly the fix.  For some reason the connection string and authenticatin settings were blank.  I configured as above and added the credentials and it works perfectly now.
