Facts and Changes
ION Enterprise (IONE) or StruxureWare Power Monitoring (SPM) with SQL Reporting Services
Causes and Fixes
If there are no other errors in the Windows Application or System Logs, the issue might simply be that Reporting Services is taking longer than the 30,000 milliseconds to start up, and the Service Controller is stopping the process.
A simple registry key can be added to increase this timeout.
Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
1) Open up regedit.exe and browse to HKLM\System\CurrentControllset\Control
2) If it is not already there, create a new DWORD called ServicesPipeTimeout.
3) Set the value (decimal) to something higher than 30,000 ms (i.e. 120,000 ).
4) Restart the Server and see if the SQL Reporting Services service starts up.
If the service does not start, the timeout might have to be further increased.
