SubObjective: Manage reports


Item Number: 70-510.6.4.1
Single Answer, Multiple Choice


You are the team foundation administrator for your company. You integrate team foundation server deployment with Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). You are required to upload the latest version of a report from the file system into the report server database, ensuring the existing version is overwritten by the latest one. The layout and query of reports are defined in XML format by using the report definition (.rdl) language. You plan to use the Report Manager tool to upload the latest version of the report. But when you try to open the Report Manager tool by using http://localhost/reports, you receive a network error, and the tool does not open.


What should you do to resolve the network error?



  1. Modify the LAN settings by using Internet Explorer
  2. Add the Web server name as a trusted site in Internet Explorer
  3. Disable anonymous access for the report server virtual directory
  4. Verify the report server virtual directory setting in the RSWebApplication.config file

Answer:
A. Modify the LAN settings by using Internet Explorer


Tutorial:
You should modify the LAN settings by using Internet Explorer to resolve the network error. When accessing the Report Manager tool by using http://localhost/reports URL, a network error typically occurs due to incorrect proxy server settings in Internet Explorer. To resolve this problem, you must adhere to the following steps:



  1. Open the Internet Explorer window, click the Tools menu, and click the Internet Options to open the Internet Options dialog box.
  2. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Connections tab.
  3. In the Connections tab, click the LAN settings button under the Local Area Network (LAN) settings section to open the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings dialog box.
  4. In the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings dialog box, select the Bypass proxy server for local addresses check box.

After resolving the network error, to upload the latest version of the report, you must open the Upload File page by clicking the Upload File option in the Contents page of the Report Manager tool. To ensure that the existing version of the report is overwritten by the latest one, you must select the Overwrite item if it exists check box.


You should not add the Web server name as a trusted site in Internet Explorer to resolve the network error. Adding the Web server name as a Trusted site is required if you are using Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 with default settings on the report server. Using IIS 6.0 with default settings on the report server prohibits you from opening the various pages such as New Folder page, New Data Source page, and Upload File page. However, adding the Web server name cannot resolve network errors.


You should not disable anonymous access for the report server virtual directory to resolve the network error. Disabling anonymous access for the report server virtual directory is required if you are receiving a blank Web page when opening the Report Manager tool. If anonymous access is enabled, then the role-based security prohibits access to server management features. To resolve such blank page-related issues, you must disable the Anonymous access.


You should not verify the report server virtual directory setting in the RSWebApplication.config file to resolve the network error. Verifying the settings in the RSWebApplication.config file is only required if you are able to access report server at http://<webservername>/reportserver URL. In this scenario, you are failing to start the Report Manager tool. To resolve this issue, you must open the RSWebApplication.config file and verify that the report server instance specified in the file is valid.
