Hi

SQL Server reporting is all working fine (Report Manager & SSRCM etc) with the exception of trying to connect to the server type of Reporting Services in SSMS (locally and remotely).

This is the error.

"Cannot connect to <server name>
Unable to connect to the server <server name>. The specified URL might not be valid or there might be a problem with report server or configuration etc..."

The service is running under a windows domain account and is a sysadmin on the server instance.The account is also an administrator on the server.

I know what I should be seeing and what I need is to be able to "Enable My Reports". Having run SQL Profiler on an instance where SSRS via SSMS is working I have identified the stored procedure and executed on the problem server. I then get a different error on loading the report manager home page so I have switched off My Reports via this same stored procedure while I try and fix the issue allowing report manager to work as normal.

Selecting "browse" on the server name connection dialog box identifies the server name correctly and I've tried qualifying the name with the domain and tried with the IP Address - no luck.

My final thoughts were relating to the DACL (Default Discretionary Access Control List).I've tried resetting the SDDL string using sc sdset <reporting service service name> as per http://dba.stackexchange.com/questions/4279/sql-server-configuration-manager-not-display-services

I've now run out of ideas apart from re-installing SSRS which I'd rather try and avoid if possible.

Can anyone please help/advise?

Thanks

Mark
