Critical Status - Database-Oriented Issues Plus

It seems that everything has a critical status, especially when it comes to databases and software development! Here's a place for listing issues and ideas relating to database and development issues. I'll list problems and ideas mainly related to SQL Server 2005. Post your thoughts, advice or complaints! Later this year will be the 25th anniversary of being in the trenches of the IT industry. I specialize in database applications development. I'd like to share my experiences with everyone and learn of those of others. You never stop learning.

Connecting a Report Server from Management Studio

To connect to a Report Server from Management Studio, there are a few things to consider.

First, I can not connect to an RS 2000 instance. I'll keep trying. Second, make sure the machine is functional. That really helps too. :-( IT can be a real time killer LOL Last, I have read many a sites/posts all of which say use the syntax for a servername as:


What I found that truly works is http://reports_web_site/reportserver

* reports web site example --> i.e. the url you give your report server in IIS.

* reportserver --> the actual text "reportserver "
