Error "Connection Could not be made to the report server" when attempting deployment
I'm working through the SQL2005 Reporting Services Tutorial. When I try to deploy, I get the error "Connection could not be made to the report server." It appears that I do not have permissions to get to localhost/reportserver (I get a permissions error when just trying to get there directly from "run"). In another forum I saw several people having the same issue. One contributor said that the problem was solved for him by uninstalling SQL2005 and reinstalling using the local system account rather than a windows domain account. I tried that, but am getting the same error. Anyone know how to fix this?

If the error you get from the RS URL is access denied, you may need to get permissions to the report server. Here's where you can read more on RS security. http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/rswork/htm/rms_security_v1_3hia.asp If the error is coming from ASP.NET, there may be a configuration issue with your RS server. Hope that helps Tudor Trufinescu

Like you (David) I am having a similar problem I have read through the various posts and any help would grateful My error message is :- A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/reportserver$sqlexpress. (Microsoft Report Designer) =================================== The server committed a protocol violation. Section=ResponseStatusLine (Microsoft.ReportingServices.Designer) I am running XP Home with SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Toolkit I am trying to work through Deploying the AdventureWorks Sample Reports found within the Sample Directory installed with SQL Express. Im sure Ive followed the clear guide lines given. Im actually trying this because another Microsoft tutorial resulted in the same problem. My initial thought was that the server wasnt running I tried this step below also found on the Sample Reports instructions:- Type the Report Manager URL in the address bar of a Web browser. By default, the URL is http://<webservername>/reports. If you are using SQL Server Express, the default URL is http://localhost/reports$SQLExpress. This didnt work, I note the URL is different to one generating the error message. What should I expect if this is my first deployment? Also is it possible to identify if the server is running using Services from Administrative Tools (Control Panel)?

I must apologise after much digging around I found this tiny caveat in the system requirements required to run SQL Server Express with Advanced Services on XP Home Reporting Services, which is installed as part of SQL Server Express with Advanced Services, will not install on operating systems that do not include Internet Information Services (IIS). See http://download.microsoft.com/download/b/d/1/bd1e0745-0e65-43a5-ac6a-f6173f58d80e/RequirementsSQLEXP2005Advanced.htm I guess this is my problem. I wrongly assumed that Microsoft had taken a similar approach to this VERY VERY annoying IIS problem for XP Home users as they had done with their Visual Web Developer Express editions. It seems the report writer software works as long as you dont deploy, so I can at least get an idea on how to use it. Thanks again and I hope David has his problem fixed soon

I faced the same problem... I tried many funny things...initially,Igot it to work a bit and not entirely. You can check out my documented troubleshooting events here. But the conclusion is like what you have mentioned. Eventually, the real solution is to reinstall SQL Server 2005 Express with Advance Features (reporting services) using default settings (local system account and also for Report Server) and then it worked! But actually I reinstalled two times. But it could be possible that during previous installations, certain settings were skipped by the installer and caused the misbehaviour.

At the risk of sounding and appearing stupid try using the url in the format http://servername/reportserver2005. Adding the 2005 at the end did the trick for me.

I have already checked Deploying Reporting server http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159868.aspx Troubleshooting Reporting Server http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159135.aspxBut I can not seems to find a solution.

My URL did match, except for case. When I changed "/reportserver" to "/ReportServer" it started to work.

I have also faced the same problem. On investigating, the problem was lying with the Port that was specified while configuring the SQL Server Reporting Server. I corrected the deployment URL correctly by adding the port number with the server name and the deployment was successfull.

Hi, I have created an adhoc report project using SSRS 2008 using SQL Server 2008 running on Windows xp. When I try to deploy my solution I get the error "A connection could not be made to the repors server http://localhost/reportserver.I have spent 3 days looking for the solution and still no success. Any advice will be higly appriciated.Below are the different solutions I have tried: 1.) rpreportserver.config - set urlroot to localhost/reportserver. Map the virual directory to c:\reportserver directory. Set TargetURL property of the solution to http://localhost/reportserver and finally Provide aspnet and network service persmissions on the virtual directory. 2.) Another solution is that in the rpreportserver.config set urlroot to localhost:8080/reportserver. I have created adefault.aspx that I am able to open via the browser successfully. I have the admin rights on my machine. Please let me know where I am missing something while deploying the solution. Best!
