We currently have two web servers (Windows Server 2008 Standard, IIS7) setup to host an ASP.Net website and are using the basic features of our hardware firewall to provide network load balancing (NLB) between the two servers. This means we have had to change the ASP.Net session state mode to SQL Server in order to make the data stored in session accessible no matter which server responds to the request. The main issue now is that crystal reports (basic edition packaged with VS2008) do not seem to support serialization which is needed in order to store/transfer the report to session state on SQL Server.
From what I have read so far in order to get crystal reports working in a web farm environment it seems the only option is to upgrade to Crystal Reports Server and load the reports from a third server. Another option may be to use SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) as we already have this so no extra cost involved, however I'm not sure if SSRS would resolve the issue with storing reports in session?
When i run the application locally it works fine but when i publish it n access from it it gives the error asEither the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly.
My web developers (using Visual Studio .NET 2008) are looking to use Crystal Reports in their web applications.
I have figured out how to install the runtime for version of CR that comes packaged with VS2008 (10.5) on the web server.
I have additionally investigated integrating CR2008 (12.2) into VS2008 and then using the CR2008 (12.2) runtime.
What I need to know is, what are the differences in features and if there are performance issues/limitations between using the runtimes.
For VS2005, I believe that if you used the CR that came packaged with VS2005, the runtime on the web server would accept 3~5 requests but would drop additional requests, where as Crystal Reports XI R2 runtime on the web server would queue additional requests.
I'm new to Visual Studio.NET . I need to integrate the crystal reports into an ASP.NET application. I generated Crystal report with the help of crystal report XI developer edition(Stand alone version and NOT from the one which comes from visual studio).
How to integrate this report with the web application.
I have SSRS (discountasp.net) and I currently display reports on my web page using Reportviewer and use .net code to authenticate them (username/password). Recently I have bought VPS (Windows Server 2008 Web Edition + .net 4.0) and would like to use SSRS the same way as above. I have never done this before so need some guidance on that just to ensure the server is still "safe". Below are some questions that I think are related but feel free to add other comments that I didn't think about.
1) Set up new user? What permissions are required? 2) Configure SSRS to for external connections? 3) Firewall?
I'm designing some reports to summarize recently compiled research findings. These reports are going to be posted on an ASP.NET page (via the report control) on the web site. I do not want to authenticate users, as the findings are meant to be public and requiring users to register and authenticate would add a barrier and is likely to decrease traffic.I've seen similar posts where reports are meant to be viewed by everyone on an intranet and permissions could be set using a designated workgroup. I need alternative solutions to the problem of making a report viewable by everyone who visits a site. I'm also currently unfamiliar with Kerberos (and I know that will probably pop up as a potential solution), so if there's a convenient way outside of that it would be great.
I am using VWD 2008 with VB.Net code-behind. I have multiple parameterized RDLC reports that use tableadapters in a .xsd dataset that I use a reportviewer to view / export the PDF reports.
Lately, we have noticed that the reportviewer is causing many errors on our webserver and sometimes causing the webserver to crash. It has been recommended to me to move the RDLC reports to SSRS, which we also have up and running on another server.
My question is how do I do this? Do I have to convert them to RDL files? What about the fields on the .aspx pages that supply the parameters? Also, what do I do with the tableadapters?
We want to not use the reportviewer but still have the capability to retrieve the RDLC reports in PDF format.
Starting to look into an web app thet uses the ReportViewer to display SSRS reports. This is for SSRS 2008. What would be the best way to go about the follwoing: The reports are sales reports so only ceratin people will get to see certain reports.
1: If a user opens a report which they can see and that report has a subreport which they can't, will the subreport still be viewable?
2: If the webapp will be used by many different people internally and eventually by outside people, what is the best security startegy to use, just plain ServerReportCredentials passing, or something else?
I have been developing reports using BIDS 2005 and deploying them to a report server on my development machine.
These reports can be called succesfully from both the report manager and my asp.net website.Everything has been working fine.
Some time back some early versions of the reports were deployed to a test server in order that they could be tested away from the development machine. The reports processed successfully.Today I have uploaded a number of completed reports (using Report Manager) to the test server and am getting an error message for each one when I try to run it direct from Report Manager.
The message is: "An error has occurred during report processing Common Language Rutime detected an invalid program"
I've been trying to resolve this for a few hours now and am getting nowhere. Google has thrown up some finds on the error message but these seem to refer to people having issues with the compilation of large methods or forms with a very high number of controls.I can't see this being appropriate because most of the reports are relatively simple and the most complex probably has only 100 different controls.
i Have upgraded my Reports from Report server VS 2005 to VS 2008 .
My reports works fine in local, development & test server.
After Ugrading to 2008 it works fine in local server & devlopement serverr.
When i deployed to Test server i am trying to access my reports i am getting below errors,
An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
Cannot create a connection to data source 'DataSource1'. (rsErrorOpeningConnection) For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors ..
i checked the Datasource conncetion properties..its pointing to correct Test database only..
My reports are windows integrated...
Now it works in srs 2005 developement & test server. For same properties it works in dev server, it doesn't works in srs 2008 test server.
I have already generated crystal reports but i've made them static. but now i want to make the user to select the criteria for generating the reports. for eg., in one of them i want to show monthwise data so user should be able to select the month and year and that would be passed as parameter and compared to the existing data. provide me with proper exact code that can be used for giving parameters in such a report using C#.
I'm working on a site that ws developed using VS 2005 and the server where the site is running has Crystal Reports for .net 2.0 (ver 10.2.36)I will be making changes. I just ported the website to my local computer, and build the site using VS 2008, that comes with Crystal R. Basic.I haven't tested all the functionality of the site, so I'm not sure since all the pages that use C. Reports work ok.My main concern is about publishing the site I compiled to the server. Will things work, if I have Crystal R. Basic and the server has Crystal R. for .net 2.0.
In my system Visual studio 2008 with sp1 and Crystal Reports XI Release 2.In Visaul studio 2008 ,while adding add reference it showing crystal reports version 10 instead of 11.How to solve the version problem.
I am considering using Crystal Report 2008 as my tool of creating reports on my webpage.The only problem which I'm facing is that I have no control of the remote server which hosts my site (besides uploading files). I can't run a MSI to deploy the CR runfiles.I can't find anywhere in the CR user manual of how to deploy the runtime files without running the msi, and I'm not even sure it's possible.Have anyone deployed CR 2008 without running the MSI and without having to register any files?
I have a field in my dataset with type nvarchar(1000). when I link it to crystal reports, it converts it to a field of type string with length set to 100. As a result of that, the string in that field is being truncated on the report. How can I increase the string length to 1000? (I already checked the "Can grow" option).
I have developed few crystal reports using VS.2005 and now i want to deploy the same on my web server which is running Windows 2003 server and got installed only .net frame work 2.0.... so now i want to know how can i run those reports successfully and i have downloaded CRRedist2005_X86.msi and even crXIsp3 and 4 _net_server from business objects page and i do have Crystal Reports XI original CD.... while by using them can i run crystal reports on my web pages.
