Reporting Services Server cannot connect to the DPM database. ID: 3001


I’m encountered this error message during training material preparation.


  • Product:- System Center Data Protection Manager 2012 R2
  • SQL Server installed locally with DPM 2012 R2


Error ID 3001:- Reporting Services Server cannot connect to the DPM database

when configure reporting schedule.

4. Change this settings:-

Connect using

X – Credentials stored securely in the report server and enter the credential that have access to DPM Database
