ConfigMgr 2012 R2: Report not running

Found some “strange” issue with reporting. srsrp.log doesn’t show any error, everything looks just fine except launching a report. When we click Run on any report, it doesn’t seems to launch.

Decided to check those log files, found from this log located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\AdminUILog\SMSAdminUI.log

Found this error in the highlighted lines. Tricky part is it’s not highlighted in Red using cmtrace.

Solution:
1. Install Microsoft Report Viewer 2010 Redistributable Package. It can be found from the Internet or C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\bin\ReportViewer.exe

2. Close and launch your SCCM Console again and it should be able to Run the reports now.

Unable to login to ConfigMgr Application Catalog

Detected this error “Portal Web Site Control Manager detected PORTALWEB is not responding to HTTP requests. The http status code and text is 500, Internal Server Error”

image

Solution= Re-register IIS using the command shown below:

1. Launch command prompt with elevated rights

2. Go to %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319 (Framework if it’s on a 32-bit computer)

3. Type aspnet_regiis.exe /iru hit Enter

4. Immediately you can login to the portal and slowly you’ll notice the error will be gone.

Cheers!

ConfigMgr 2012 – SQL Report keep prompting for credentials

This is similar with App Catalog keep prompting for credentials post.

While accessing ConfigMgr SQL web reports at http://servername/reports web page, it keeps prompting for credentials and won’t allow me to access the reports. Access given in ConfigMgr.

Since my Internet Security settings was done, it has something to do with SQL Reporting Services.

Solution:

1. Locate rsreportserver.config file at C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS11.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer (Path and SQL server version may differ).

2. Open the file and search for RSWindowsNegotiate

3. Comment the RSWindowsNegotiate authentication type as shown in picture below

4. Restart SQL Reporting services and retry launching the reports without the prompts Smile
