Ratings not working

Sep 30, 2009 at 9:56 PM

I have got the ratings webpart to show up and when you hover over the stars they change colors like they should.  However, when you click on one of the stars to give a rating, it hangs IE for a bit then you get a pop-up with the error:  "An error in the ratings service has occured.  Please contact the site administrator."

I have made sure that the Application Pool is running as a service account (domain account, not Network or Local System).  That account also has dbo rights to the RatingStore database.

Thoughts of where to look?  I'm assuming that I've made a mistake somewhere but am not seeing it.

Wouldn't you know it, as soon as I post for help (after 2 hours of looking) I found my typo.  I had left a "0" out of the DB server name on one of the lists.  Sheesh.
