Tech Tips: Installation
When installing Cizer .Net Reporting, it is important to remember to change
the default server name from "localhost" to the correct name
of your SQL Server Reporting Services server. Leaving "localhost" as
the server name will disable you from running reports from any machine
other than the server Reporting Services is installed on.
Configuration instructions for Reporting Services and Cizer .Net with Windows SharePoint Services:
1. Enable Microsoft Reporting Services to coexist with Microsoft SharePoint Services by following the instructions from the RS Setup documentation (rssetup.chm). This information is found under the help topic “Troubleshooting a Side-by-Side installation of Reporting Services and Windows SharePoint Services”.
2. Add CNR to the Windows SharePoint Services list of exclusions.
STSADM.EXE –o addpath –url http://localhost/CNR -type exclusion.
3. Set the trust level of the “system.web” configuration element in the Cizer .NET Reporting web.config file by adding a line directly under <system.web> and inserting the code below. By default, the web.config file is located at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\CNR.
<trust level="Full" originUrl="" />
4. Use the IIS Manager to ensure that Cizer .NET Reporting is in an application pool that is separate from the SharePoint server.

Testimonial: Locus Technologies Implements Cizer .Net Reporting
"Cizer.NET Reporting will enable users of LocusFocus and EIM to design their own
reports and run existing reports over the web without having to install or download any software onto
their local computers. Cizer includes an extensive set of formatting and querying options, giving users
the utmost in flexibility with respect to the content and organization of their reports. The combination
of these tools, together with LocusFocus' other download and data visualization options, will provide
environmental professionals with all the querying and reporting power they need to perform their work
in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Furthermore, Locus's corporate customers stand to gain
tremendous savings when necessary report formats are not created independently by separate offices but,
instead, are developed just once, after which they are stored and made available over the web, where all
who have the appropriate authorization can access and run them," said Dr. Neno Duplancic, President and
CEO of Locus.
"With the addition of Cizer reporting tools, Locus continues to provide its customers
with a cost-competitive, centralized analytical information management system that is superior to any
client-server system available in the marketplace today. As our client base continues to expand to
private and government sectors, Locus is committed to meeting all federal and state electronic data
deliverables for the environmental industry, and automating the complex world of environmental reporting," added Dr. Duplancic.
