I've sql 2008 R2 loaded on a windows 2008 server, along with websphere and maximo. Found a couple of ports that wouldn't conflict, and the reports are served up through both the http and https using the respective ports. The problem I have is that I need to use the friendly name so that the proxy server stays out of the mix. Using the FQDN, it gets in the middle and keeps the website from displaying the content. We also can't get our server added to the exception list in IE thanks to Govt config rules.
I was able to successfully add a friendly name on a separate port on my SQL only development server running windows 2008 R2, by manually editing the URL after I got another copy of the FQDN into the rsserver.config file. It works fine.
Tried the same thing on this server, and it refuses to bind the endpoint when reporting services starts. I've manually added the short name and info into the registry, no love.
I can't find anything on technet about manually editing the config file or adding other names for the same certificate. I have verified that the short name is one of the properties for the certificate, so there shouldn't be a problem there either.
Has anyone done multiple urls on Windows 2008 and got any advice?
