An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

  Asked By: Malinda    Date: Aug 04    Category: MOSS    Views: 2480

I get this message when I try to launch a report (.rdl) from Windows Sharepoint 2007. I have followed the steps to integrate SQL 2005 SP2 with Sharepoint 2007. I can launch the report by navigating to "http://server:880/reportserver/.." I am using a shared datasource that I created within sharepoint.

Microsoft has determined that there is a problem when integrating SharePoint and Reporting Services when both services are using Kerberos. The tech support group has not released a KB on it, but they informed me that it is being worked on. The current workarounds include the following:

1) Use NTLM authentication on your SharePoint site

2) If you are using Kerberos, you can upload your reports using SharePoint, but you have to use the report  Server site to view the reports or you can use the Report Viewer webpart within SharePoint to view the report, but you have to type in the location to the report you cannot browse to it.
