Thanks in advance for any help...

I have SS2k8R2 Developer with reporting and analysis services running. I'm learning to use Reporting Services and have created a simple report model. The build is fine, but when I try to 'deploy' I get the error message:
'A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer.'

Can someone please explain what the problem is and how I can fix it?

Thanks again,
Joe

Found this online . You might want to try this :

I discovered that the Reporting Services Configuration Manager was incorrectly showing green check-marks indicating my Report Server and Report Manager Virtual Directories were set up, when in fact they were not (what tipped me off to this is when I went to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Information Services, there were no Report Server or Reports folder branches under my Default Web Site tree). So in the Reporting Services Configuration Manager, I clicked the New button to create the default Report Server and Report Manager Virtual Directories ((this was the 2nd time I did this, which may have been necessary because I uninstalled and reinstalled IIS after instaling SSRS). This time the IIS manager showed Report Server and Reports folder branches under my Default Web Site tree, and I was able to successfully browse to http://localhost/reportserver, AND deploy my SSRS project to the web server. Note that I am running a named instance of SQL Server 2005 (the default instance is SQL Server 2000), and even though I have seen posts suggesting the correct URL for a named instance would be http://localhost/reportserver$<named_instance>, this did NOT work for me ... http://localhost/reportserver DOES work.

Thanks for the post! I'll give that a try. Sounds like it is what I'm missing too.
