Ensure that you can browse to the Report Manager Web application

Problem

The Reporting Configuration utility displays the following error message:

Ensure that you can browse to the Report Manager Web application and view its Home page successfully. The URL has the format
http://host_name/webapp_name/ , for example http://myserver.mydomain.com/Reports/.
When you have displayed the Report Manager Home page, click ‘OK’ below to continue.

Error Message

Ensure that you can browse to the Report Manager Web application and view its Home page successfully.
 

 

 

Solution

This message appears if the Configuration utility is unable to access the Microsoft Reporting Services Report Manager Web application.

  1. Make sure that the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services are configured and running.
  2. Then follow the error dialog instructions to browse to the Report Manager Web application’s home page. When you have successfully accessed the Web application home page, click “OK” on the error dialog to continue the configuration.
  3. If the same error dialog reappears when you click “OK”, refresh the Report Manager home page and then click “OK” on the dialog again. On a slow Report Server you may need to repeat these actions a number of times until the error dialog no longer appears and the reports deploy successfully.
