SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am getting "Report Server has encountered a SharePoint error. (rsSharePointError) User cannot be found." error while opening SSRS report on SharePoint site. Getting this error only for few reports.Most of the reports are running fine.

Below is the SharePoint trace log i am getting:

Web part failed in OnPreRender: Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportServerException: Report Server has encountered a SharePoint error. (rsSharePointError) ---> Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportServerException: User cannot be found. ---> Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportServerException: For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors - -- End of inner exception stack trace --- - -- End of inner exception stack trace ---

I want to add some more observations: When i open saved report on SharePoint site in report builder it opens as 'Untitled' enter image description here

I observed one more thing:Only one user is getting this issue. User has contribute assess on SharePoint site. Is it SharePoint issue or Report server issue? –  ARD Oct 21 '13 at 12:35
