  • I have read a few posts indicating that MOPPS2007/SP2 has trouble talking to SSRS2008 (32-bit) out of the box and that changes to the web.config are required to get this to work.  Do you have any knowledge of this and if so, can you post a typical solution to this problem?  We are evaluating just such an architecture and we are unsure whether to use SSRS2008 or SSRS2005.  Thank you.

  • Hi Christophe,

    How to install the Portfolio Server 2007 reporting components on a

    separate reporting services farm that is 64 bit. When I try to run the

    install it tells me it can't install on a 64 bit machine. It doesn't give me

    the option to get to the reporting piece.

    Please help me out....does microsoft provide any support for this?

  • That's because it's not supported! I recommend you consider the new Portfolio Strategy capabilities of Project Server 2010 which is due out next month which is now 64-bit.

  • Hi christophe,

    Thanks for ur reply.

    I am having a lot of problems with microsoft project portfolio server 2007 and configuring it with SQL Server reporting services 2008(32 bit) so I moved to SSRS 2005 and I am trying to test the SSRS connection with MOPPS using the two tests they have mentioned in MOPPS deployment guide (page 71 to be precise).

    I cleared one test where I can see the reports folder with sample reports in reportserver. But the second test is giving me a lot of problems. When I do the export to excel it throws an error. I was wondering if I need to install excel on the server. If yes, We are still using office 2003 so, Is that a problem ?

    Please help me out with this situation .....
