Installing SSRS on a Separate Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed the SQL Reporting Service on a different server from the CRM server (Dynamics CRM 2011 Server) but when I run the reports, it is giving me the following error:

    An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
    Query execution failed for dataset 'DSMain'. (rsErrorExecutingCommand)

    And it the SSRS log, I see the error:

    library!ReportServer_0-1!2518!03/02/2015-15:57:36:: w WARN: Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportProcessing.ProcessingAbortedException: An error has occurred during report processing. ---> Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportProcessing.ReportProcessingException: Cannot create a connection to data source 'CRM'. ---> Microsoft.Crm.Reporting.DataExtensionShim.Common.ReportExecutionException: 
    System.FormatException: Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx). ---> Microsoft.Crm.Reporting.DataExtensionShim.Common.ReportExecutionException: Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx).

    We never had this issue when we installed the SSRS on the same server as the CRM server.  Is there anything I need to do to make it work?

  • Hi,

         What you are trying has nothing to do with the installation. The error is you are not passing GUID as expected.

    System.FormatException: Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx). --->

        Does OOTB reports work fine or you have this issue with OOTB reports as well? We have similar implementations on many environments and I have not seen this issue as well.

    Hope this helps.

  • Same thing for the OOTB reports.

    So any reason you can think of why it is not passing the GUID and how I can resolve that?

  • Did you make sure to install the SSRS CRM Connector on your new SSRS server?  That service acts as a connector to handle permissions between the two systems.
