The SharePoint site with the id {GUID} could not be found. (rsSPSiteNotFound)

The source farm reports work fine, but after the restore to a new farm, some (not all) reports get this error. Looked at many blog posts and they all seemed related to BlobCache. Not using it currently. In the web.config, I ensured that the blobcache is set false.

This is on SharePoint 2010 with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in a multi-server farm


I believe I figured this out. I had to go to the list of Data Connections that are being used by the reports, clicking on each data connection, clicking Test Connection (which rewires the connection and clears any cache related to that report) then clicking Okay. This solved my problem.

  • that's right - it solved mine too – user5940 Dec 7 '11 at 13:08

I had the same problem in Sharepoint 2010. All my reports used shared datasets. I had to remap the datasource for each dataset and this solved my problem.

Thanks for your help.
