Hi -

I need some help to get RSBuild working. Has any one used RSBuild? http://rsbuild.codeplex.com/

Requirement -
The project has over 30 reports that need to be deployed each time a build goes in. It is very cumbersome deploying the reports by uploading them one at a time using ReportManager. RSBuild seems very promising but setting it up seems quite a job!

Progress so far - 
I have set up the RSBuild App Config... Sample below...
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

<Settings>

<Globals>

<Global Name="ReportServer">localhost</Global>

<Global Name="ReportServerPath">reports/Pages/Folder.aspx</Global>

<Global Name="CollapsedHeight">0.5in</Global>

</Globals>

<ReportServers>

<ReportServer Name="myReportServer" Protocol="http" Host="${ReportServer}" Path="${ReportServerPath}" Timeout="30" />

</ReportServers>

<DataSources>

<DataSource Name="TestDb" Publish="true" Overwrite="true" TargetFolder="TestFolder" ReportServer="myReportServer">

<ConnectionString>Data Source=VSS07; Initial Catalog=Rump</ConnectionString>

<CredentialRetrieval>Prompt</CredentialRetrieval>

<WindowsCredentials>False</WindowsCredentials>

<UserName></UserName>

<Password></Password>

</DataSource>

</DataSources>

<Reports>

<!-- TestReport -->

<ReportGroup Name="Test" DataSourceName="TestDb" TargetFolder="TestFolder"

ReportServer="myReportServer" CacheTime="10080">

<Report Name="TestReport">

<FilePath>MyReport\TestReport.rdl</FilePath>

</Report>

</ReportGroup>

</Reports>

</Settings>


So i run the RSBuild.exe suppling the above config from the command prompt.

Problem -
I end up with following ...

[Settings]: Loading RSBuild settings from 'C:\Documents and Settings\!3rdxxxx\
RSBuild.config'
RSBuild 1.1.1

Thanks

You have hit a bug in the reporting of report server url validation issues. I'll try to release a bug fix today.

The report server url validation issue should be reported now by the latest release. And the actual problem in your config file has already been tackled on http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/de-DE/sqlreportingservices/thread/80c44d3c-5cef-43ce-a747-c3b0fd069642.
