Management Reporter 2012
An error occurred while configuring 'Management Reporter Application Service'. Check the deployment log for details.
I opened up the deployment log and quickly found the error (I’ll only post the significant parts of the log as it is quite long). I was pleased to see that the error message was a different one, which meant that I had at least successfully fixed the first error:
02/11/2015 09:45:14 - .Net SqlClient Data Provider: Msg -2, Level 11, State 0, Line 0 Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.
The configuration of the Management Reporter Configuration Console is stored in a file called MRConfigurationConsole.exe.config. The file is stored in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics ERP\Management Reporter\2.1\Server\Console.
The screenshot below shows that the SqlTimeout value is set to 300 seconds which equates to 5 minutes:
I upped this to 3600 seconds (1 hour) and restarted the configuration. This particular error didn’t occur again, but check back tomorrow for the next error.
