Bug #: 20011181 (SQLBUDT)
Consider the following scenario. You want to set a dump file location for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services. To do this, you specify a location for the Crash Dump option in the Dr. Watson for Windows program error debugger tool. In this scenario, SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services continues to save the dump file to its own log files location. SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services does not save the dump files to the location that you specify in the Dr. Watson for Windows tool.
Note The Dr. Watson for Windows tool is included with Microsoft Windows.
This issue occurs because SQL Server 2005 Report Services generates a dump file to the following location by default:
Add the code that is listed in step 2 to the Web.config file.
Note Changing the directory location for the dump files also changes the location for the SQL Server Reporting Services log files. You will need to set permissions on the new folder to match the permissions on the LogFiles folder.
To view the Help files for the Dr. Watson for Windows tool, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type drwtsn32.exe, and then click OK. The Dr.Watson for Windows tool opens.
