Problem installing SSRS Data Connector (CRM Reporting Extensions): Object reference not set to an instance of an object RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am having the following issue when trying to install CRM Reporting Extensions for a CRM testing environment. When trying to specify the SQL Server, I provide the instane name (i.e. SQLSERVERNAME\SQL2K8R2) and I get the following error:

    "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

    Here are the details:

    • One server with CRM 2011 RTM (will apply correct UR after this).
    • Another server with SQL 2008 R2 running at a name instance (i.e. SQLSERVERNAME\SQL2K8R2). SSRS is also installed on this server.

    It is worth pointing out that the SSRS instance has been configured as: http://sqlservername/ReportServer_SQL2K8R2 (note the underscore) since it has been deployed at the named instance SQL2K8R2. Based on some preliminar investigation I found out that this could be an issue. However I do not know how I can possibly circumvent it.

    Any help towards the resolution of this matter is greatly appreciated.
