SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • You try to generate a Report Builder model in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services.
  • You try to generate the Report Builder model from a data source in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.
In this scenario, you receive the following error message:
Server was unable to process request. ---> The operation has timed out
CAUSE
This issue occurs if the data source points to a large amount of data.
MORE INFORMATION
You can safely ignore the error message. Even though you receive the error message, the report server continues to process the Report Builder model.
