Error in initialization of the report service
I installed the evaluation version of SQL Server 2005 to my Windows XP machine. Everything has worked well. Now I have problem.I installed the reporting service to test the web reporting. In the Report service configuration managerI get threeerrors: The Web Services Identity indicator is red and pushing Apply button gives the error:ReportServicesConfigUI.WMIProvider.WMIProviderException: An unknown error has occurred in the WMI Provider. Error Code 8007056B Pushing Initialization button gives the message: There was an error while switching panels. The most likely cause is an error retriewing WMI properties. the exeception details are: An error occured when attempting to connect to the report server remote procedure call (RPC) end point. Verify that the Report Server Windows service is running and then try the operation. Execption 800706B3. Server Status Indicator is also red. Pushing the Start Button gives the following message: System.ServiceProcess.TimeoutException: Time out has expired and the operation has not been completed. at System.ServiceProcess. ServiceController. WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus desiredStatus, TimeSpan timeout) at ReportServicesConfigUI.Panels.ServerInformationPanel.StartStopServiceTask(Boolean start) Has anyone an idea what Ishould do ?? thankfully Matti

Maybe could be a permissions problem. You should take a look at the Report Server logs to see if you see anything helpful. Make sure you are configuring locally and you are administrator on the machine. You should also make sure that the ReportServer service is running.

Thanks for help Brian ! The usefull things I made: 1. Created ReportService database using Report Service Configuration 2. Edited my personal account to Web Service Account in rsreportserver.config 3. Used rsconfig utility to encrypt the connection and account information 4. Edited my personal account to <processModel userName=" " > etc. There were many things which were not easy to find, but now the system works. Matti

Did you manage to figure this one out? Really struggling with this... Just to re-cap - When using the Reporting services configuration manager - I get the same problem - clicking on "Report Server virtual directory" or "Web Service Identity" just comes up with the error message "...Object reference not set to an instance of an object" Please help!! Thanks Wicky

Hi Brian I can't seem to get around this problem. I'm running Windows Server 2003 so the default setup was for Report Server Windows service was to run under Network Service. Whatever I do when clicking on the "Web Service Identity" option or "Report Server Virtual Directory" option I get the above mentioned error message about "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". Wicky (again!)

I've got this problem as well.I noticed in a previous post that the administrator privilege on the machine is advised to launch the reporting service configuration tool.Is that true ? On my development server the tool works fine but I have the problem on the production. I'm not administrator of any of the two.Thanks,Galic

Hi, For people who received the exception message: " An internal error occurred on the report server.See the error log for more details. ( rsInternalError) " could you, please, take a look in the Reporting Services windows service log file and see what is logged there? This log file lives in this directory: %Program Files%\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.X\Reporting Services\LogFiles and its name looks like this: ReportServerService__<timestamp>.log Also what version and edition of Reporting Services are you running?

Probable Cause, in short: The Reporting Services Configuration Manager must be the one creating the database. Do not use an existing database this causes all sorts of problems. Also, if you conduct a service pack or upgrade before Reporting Services is completely set up, Initialisation might produce that Probable Solution: In any case, when this problem occurs, it is best to drop the database, (reboot if any Service packs were installed in-between) and use the wizard (Reporting Services Configuration Manager) in the Database Setup screen, to create the db again.PS: A similar error occurs when credentials are insuffient or incorrect. Domain controllers make matters more complex. Try different logins in Database Setup. eg: YOURSERVER\Adminuser

Hi, I have exactly the problem described here. Did anyone find a solution that worked?

Went to the database setup screen and next to database name i clicked new to setup a new db. The problem then went away.

You need to check whether the account under whichtheservice is running has log onlocallyrights in Local Policy/User RightsAssignments fix this stop and restart the service and it will work just fine

I had issues, then fought through the crashing on the config tool to create the report server virtual directories and the manager virtual directory. the tool crashed after each one. However.. one thing I shouldve done first after install which did resolve my problem: reapply sp2 - everything was updated properly and I could now open the config tool.

This error occurs because the ASPNET account used to run the service is not registered Just do the following... GO to. c:\windows\Microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727 VIA COMMAND LINE now run the command "aspnet_regiis -i" Problem shall definately be solved...Now start thr reporting service. Nilav

If you are using LocalSystem as reporting service account, try this one: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907267Bin

Hi Perfect solution for this Thanks Shirish jani

Sorry problem solved

Nilav, looks like this might solve my problem except that when I run this command I get the following response: c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis -i The error indicates that IIS is not installed on the machine. Please install IIS before using this tool. Finished installing ASP.NET (2.0.50727). I know IIS is installed I can see it in my Server Manager Roles with the following services running: Application Host Helper Service ASP>NET State Service IIS Admin Service Windows Process Activation Service World Wide Web Publishing Service What would be causing this process to think that IIS is not installed?

I don't know what's causing lufranze's problem, but I see the same error. I know IIS is running because this is an ASP .NET development machine and I couldn't even test my web pages if I wasn't running IIS.
