So but what about the Reporting How to install this on IIS 7.5

Opalis Integration Server 6.3 Reports requires the following hardware and software

Reports Software Requirements


Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 <> So no IIS7.5

This software reads from the data store for the information that populates the reports

Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.5, Service Pack 1

Install on the same computer Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 to enable Reports functionality. The .NET Web Service Extension must also be enabled.

LogiXML LGX Report

The LogiXML LGX Report software is available on Microsoft System Center Opalis ( It is used to create and modify reports.

All the Web items are unsuccessful in installing the LogiXML LGX Report but here is how to do this. advance IIS 7.5 knowledge is needed.

Lets get started :

copy the files to the folder that you want.

image the Source files are here under reports SQL <> Copy the Opalis files to your place. I almost never use the default IIS folder. If you do so make sure you have access to the Webfilesimage






Now that the files are in place create a website and make the Opalis folder an application as in the screen shot

imageNow that the Website is in place the website needs DB access so a SQL



in the IIS I create a DB connection image put in your DB instance and the Opalis DB

you could try the website Winking smile image.

The next step, I also use a servers account for websites imagefill in the account that you want to use and has access to the website After this we need two more settings. image

enable 32bit applications Opalis is 32 bit. ;-( and the managed pipeline mode must turned on to classic.



Next step would be edit the source webcode :

open file _Settings.lgx in Opalis/_Definitions

this file is used to define connection to database I know the website has it already but I’m not sure if this needs the DB I could adjust it so that even the roles is IIS.

seek for this: and change it as needed “ yoursqlinstances “ and security info on True nobody is using SQL authentication Winking smile


<Connection ID="opalis" Type="Application" ConnectionString="Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=True;Initial Catalog=Opalis;Data Source=yoursqlinstances" CommandTimeOut="30"/>



Now that this is in place stop/start the application pool and Website.

and there it is :

Opalis reporting on IIS7.5

and if not you did something wrong.

turnon the managed pipes in the application pool turnon the x32bit in the application pool
