Create Shared Data Source for Linked Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Team,

    We are facing technical challenges to create shared data sources in our Application Setup .

    We have the SSRS Web components installed in the external DMZ  and the SSRS Database Components along with the Application DB are in  Internal  Network Segment.  There are also linked server also created on our Application DB

    We are unable to create a new Data Source on the new SSRS Environment for any of our linked servers associated to our Database Server ,Request your help to create the Connection String to connect the Linked servers

    Please find below the screen shot and the error message

    A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)”
