CrystalReportViewer Failed to Open the connection Unable to retrieve Object

I am getting the following Error on trying to view a report in the CMC and the Infoview.


Failed to Open the connection. ReportName

Unable to retrieve Object.

Failed to open the connection. ReportName

I have recently re-installed Crystal Reports Server XI on a server after a disk failure. I had a backup of my CMS database. I reinstalled the Crystal Servwer without atttaching this database, however crystal did not create a new db so I attached my old one.

I have deleted all my old ODBC connections and recreated them with new names and then reconnected my reports in Crystal Reports XI using the "Set Datasource Location" option and the report works fine.But as soon as I try to view it after uploading it as an object onto the server, I get the above error.

Any help would be appreciated.
