Crystal Reports in deployed environment Logon Failed


I have read about every blog and tried every solution but to no avail. This is my code:

Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Imports CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine

Imports CrystalDecisions.Shared

Public Class cReportSetup

Dim crtableLogoninfos As New TableLogOnInfos()

Dim crtableLogoninfo As New TableLogOnInfo()

Dim crConnectionInfo As New ConnectionInfo()

Dim CrTables As Tables

Dim CrTable As Table

Dim TableCounter

Dim o As New aspdata.cData

Dim boMainPropertyBag As New DbConnectionAttributes()

Dim boInnerPropertyBag As New DbConnectionAttributes()

Public Function configureCR(ByRef reportName As String) As ReportDocument

With crConnectionInfo

If o.dbInstance Is Nothing Or o.dbInstance.Length = 0 Then

.ServerName = o.dbServer & o.dbPort


.ServerName = o.dbServer & "\" & o.dbInstance & o.dbPort

End If

.DatabaseName = "ASP"

.UserID = o.dbUser

.Password = o.dbPassword

.IntegratedSecurity = False

.Type = ConnectionInfoType.SQL

.AllowCustomConnection = True

End With

'Set the attributes for the boInnerPropertyBag

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Auto Translate", "-1"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Connect Timeout", "15"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Data Source", crConnectionInfo.ServerName))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("DataTypeCompatibility", "0"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("General Timeout", "0"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Initial Catalog", "ASP"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Integrated Security", "False"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Locale Identifier", "1033"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("MARS Connection", "0"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("OLE DB Services", "-5"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Provider", "SQLNCLI10"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Tag with column collation when possible", "0"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Trust Server Certificate", "0"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Use DSN Default Properties", "False"))

boInnerPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Use Encryption for Data", "0"))

'Set the attributes for the boMainPropertyBag

boMainPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("Database DLL", "crdb_ado.dll"))

boMainPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("QE_DatabaseName", "ASP"))

boMainPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("QE_DatabaseType", "OLE DB (ADO)"))

'Add the QE_LogonProperties we set in the boInnerPropertyBag Object

boMainPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("QE_LogonProperties", boInnerPropertyBag))

boMainPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("QE_ServerDescription", crConnectionInfo.ServerName))

boMainPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("QE_SQLDB", "True"))

boMainPropertyBag.Collection.Add(New NameValuePair2("SSO Enabled", "False"))

crConnectionInfo.Attributes = boMainPropertyBag

Dim cryRpt As New ReportDocument


setReportDb(cryRpt, False)

Return cryRpt

End Function

Private Sub setReportDb(ByRef report As ReportDocument, ByVal subR As Boolean)

'Loop through each sub report in the report and apply the LogonInfo information

'There seems to be an issue with subreports causing the app to crash. Solution for now is to set your log on info for the subreports first and then set the main report log on info.

Dim sSubReportName As String

Dim objTmpReport As ReportDocument

For Each ReportObject In report.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects

If ReportObject.GetType().Equals(GetType(SubreportObject)) Then

sSubReportName = ReportObject.SubreportName

objTmpReport = report.OpenSubreport(sSubReportName)

setReportDb(objTmpReport, True)

End If


report.SetDatabaseLogon(o.dbUser, o.dbPassword, crConnectionInfo.ServerName, "ASP")

For Each dsc As InternalConnectionInfo In report.DataSourceConnections

' Must set the UseDSNProperties flag to True before setting the database connection otherwise the connection does not work

If (dsc.LogonProperties.ContainsKey("UseDSNProperties")) Then

dsc.LogonProperties.Set("UseDSNProperties", True)

End If

dsc.LogonProperties.Set("Data Source", crConnectionInfo.ServerName)

dsc.SetConnection(crConnectionInfo.ServerName, "ASP", o.dbUser, o.dbPassword)

Dim prt As String = ""

For i As Integer = 0 To dsc.LogonProperties.Count - 1

Dim nvp As NameValuePair2 = dsc.LogonProperties.Item(i)

prt = prt & "Name=" & nvp.Name & ", Value=" & nvp.Value & System.Environment.NewLine




'Loop through each table in the report and apply the LogonInfo information

CrTables = report.Database.Tables

For Each Me.CrTable In CrTables

crtableLogoninfo = CrTable.LogOnInfo

crtableLogoninfo.ConnectionInfo = crConnectionInfo



CrTable.Location = CrTable.Name

Catch ex As Exception


Exit Sub

End Try


If Not subR Then


End If

End Sub

End Class

This is the prompts I am getting:

I noticed is that for some reason the datasource is picking up a database instance that is incorrect in the deployed environment. Not sure where that comes from.... I have a database instance in my development environment but it is different.

Any help will be appreciated...
