Error| Check ReportServerValidator : Failure: Setup requires SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 Service Pack 1 or later to exist at the specified Reporting Services Report Server "MyServerName" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have successfully installed CRM 2011 even with the CRM databases being on a named instance separate from the report server that is.

    Now I try to install the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions. I have to use a config.xml file for that too. Now the installation of the CRM Reporting Extensions fails with the above message.
    For one thing before I started the installation MS SQL Server 2008 SP1 was already installed.
    Then I installed also the SP2 on the MS SQL Server that provides the Reporting Services for CRM 2011.
    I still get the above message.

    I googled, but cannot make out any special SP1 for SQL Server Reporting Services 2008.

    Does such a service pack exist, if yes, where can I download it? Why then would it be so hidden?
    And if it doesn't exist what is this message trying to tell me - since I already installed SQL Server 2008 SP2?

    Would anybody have an idea?
    Thank you and regards


    I just realized there is also this warning:
    17:43:35|Warning| Check ReportServerInstanceValidator : Warning: Reports will not be published for some organizations because the Report Server instances used by these organizations differ from the instance selected during Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions Setup.
    I had to define the named instance of CRM on the other server which was not necessary last time since then it was all on the same server. The trouble was I just copied the config file without filling in the servername\instanceName


    found out that when I try to open the URL of the REport Server it is not available. Thats the trouble. I have to see what's wrong. Thank you anyway. Should I find the solution I shall post it.
