Hi, I'm trying to get SSRS 2005 running on the remote (client's) server. It's been installed a long ago and never run. The Reporting Service Configuration tool shows all the "green"; the reporting databases are created; the default web directories are showing up under IIS; the configuration files are created... nothing works :) - I cannot connect to SSRS from the Management Studio ("The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found"); cannot get to Report Manager ("[server name] is not set up to establish a connection on port World Wide Web service (HTTP) with this computer"; cannot deploy reports to the report server - throws the "Reporting Services Login" screen... The only hint that the client was able to give to me that the port 80 is used by another application. Maybe I could try to configure Reporting Services to use a different port? But I cannot find how to change it in SSRS 2005. I'd appreciate sharing of any experience with a similar situation! Thankyou, - Tatyana
SSRS 2005 utilizes IIS. You need to change your installation setting for IIS for this. You didn't mention which OS you are running so here are your options for IIS 6 (Windows 2003) and IIS 7 (Windows 2008).
For IIS 6.0 (windows 2003), in Start menu/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Internet Information Service (IIS) Manager, expand YourComputerName(local computer)/Web Sites, right click Default Web Site, select Properties, in pop-up window, change TCP port as your want, and then click Apply.
For IIS 7.0 (windows VISTA/7/Server 2008/R2), in Start menu/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Internet Information Service (IIS) Manager, expand YourComputerName(domain/username)/Sites, right click Default Web Site, select Edit Bindings, in pop-up window, select the binding you want to change, and click edit, change its port as you want, click OK and then close the window.
