I have an SQL Server (on Windows XP) where I have published reports using Report Manager and a bunch of databases. Within the SQL Server, I have jobs scheduled to run updates on tables, etc. I came in this morning to find that the root drive died. My drive is partitioned such that my databases aren't on the root drive - so I was able to salvage the databases.

I was able to use a prior hard drive (from about a month ago - we upgraded) and load current databases to the old drive. I'm trying to bring the old drive up to speed with today's data, jobs, files.

My databases seemed to load fine.

What I can't do is view any of the reports that use Report Manager. A few questions:

  1. Are the jobs that run through SQL Server stored in a different directory than the databases?
  2. Any idea of what's happening with accessing report manager reports? Usually a client machine could access the reports using IE. - also can't connect using an ODBC connection with Access. (the network plug is connected).
  3. Am I missing any other pieces that may need to be restored to the current view besides the databases?

All the SQL Server jobs are stored in the msdb database. Luckily, Microsoft created a page about this where everything is explained. You can check it using the following link posted below:

There is a page for Report Manager as well:

Note: On the page, click the link that leads to tutorial regarding the configuration procedure of Report Manager.
