Error when Reporting on Multiple Servers

Postby jonathan.brown » Mon Dec 03, 2012 7:44 pm


I am trying to setup Reporting on multiple servers, and I keep getting the following error message when trying to generate a report:

The metadata could not be determined because statement 'EXECUTE master..sqbdata 'SELECT id,backup_set_uuid,backup_start,backup_end,backup_type,dbname,[encr' invokes an extended stored procedure.

I have successfully created the reporting database, and successfully created and tested the linked servers on the sql server where the reporting database is on. I also made sure the user that is being authenticated has execute rights to the stored procedures in the master database.

I should note that the sql servers that I'm trying to run the report on are sql 2012 servers.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you,

It looks like this is a known problem with SQL 2012: ... rows-error

There's a few workarounds listed there - does anything there help?

Wow. Issue since 2012. Msft says "not fixing". Any updates? This effectively makes the SQL BACKUP multi-server REPORTING useless for me.
