Connection to remote SQL Server

Connection to remote SQL Server

(OP)
thread782-1608959: connection via ip address

Identical problem as the above thread number, but don't see a solution.
My connection problem is when I attempt to run a report in BO Enterprise and InfoView I get error msg, "Failed to open the connection." The server I'm attempting to connect to is remote a SQL Server.
Now, I can connect and run the report successfully through Cystal Reports and I can connect successfully through MS Visual Studio view table data.

Connection setup via ODBC

Thanks!

RE: Connection to remote SQL Server

Hi,
Be sure the ODBC config is identical on both the CR machine and the BO server and that the user/password for the database is the same.
Also you need to be sure that the account that the BO servers ( reportserver especially) use have permission to access the SQL Server location and database.
