Dashboard Designer Error: unable to connect to server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Experts,

    I came with the usual error which most of the Monitoring users faces.

    The scenario involves the following:

    I have the following a server with Sharepoint and SQL server installed along with the following components.

          Win Server 2003 SP2,
          SQL Server 2005 SP2, 
          .Net Framework 2.0 SP1,
          .Net Framework 3.0 SP1,
          .Net Framework 3.5,
          IIS 6.0,
          AJAX 1.0
    Another Server with Monitoring Server installed with the following components

          Win Server 2003 SP2,
          SQL Server 2005 SP2, 
          .Net Framework 2.0 SP1,
          .Net Framework 3.0 SP1,
          IIS 6.0,
          AJAX 1.0

    The day when i started creating reports using Dashboard Designer, it worked fine.I created reports and previewed it. But the next day when i start to open the Dasboard desinger I got the error :"Unable to Connect to the Specified Server. Make sure the Address is correct."

    But ,when I uninstall the monitoring server and re-install it, Dashboard designer is working fine.
    But it not fine to uninstall and re-install everytime.

    I had visited this post, but it doesn't help me out.

    The Event Viewer shows the following message:

  • Hi sahul,

                I some time ago faced this problem. I installed Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions 1.0 as it  was showing parser error. Comming to server connection issue,check it in the options tab once.. but since you said that you were able to work before check the identity tab in inetmgr, see if the info that you have provided in the application pool is correct... http://hassansyed.blogspot.com/  this blog might help you Smile


    Best Regards,

  • just wanna point out that i got this same error, that gave me a big headache.

    To solve it i went to IIS and put the .net trust level of the web service site to full, reseted the site, and it worked well.
