Hello all, our BO server changed IP, Now I can only refresh my deski reports on the server only, if I try to refresh my reports from client machine I get the following error message " Exception: DBD, [Microsoft SQL Server Native Client 10.0] : SQL Server Network Interfaces: Error Locating Server/Instance Specified [xFFFFFFFF]. State: 08001" thank you for your help!
