SSRS Report Builder gives “Failed to preview report.” – “Specified method is not supported.”

This one had me stumped for a little while. It appears to be as a result of using a report that uses a Report Model that in turn is using a data source that uses the Native SQL Server driver which is presented just as “Microsoft SQL Server on the data source”:

This should be changed to OLE DB and an appropriate Provider= entry made:

This was with Report Builder 3.0 / SQL Server 2008 R2 but I would imagine it affects previous versions aswell.

  1. Hi,

    This did not help. I am still facing the same issue

  2. have you changed your domain password recently, if so the report manager does not know you did that and the data source is failing to connect. Go to report services configuration manager and change your password to the new one where necessary.
