Hi krishnaSQL, If I understand correctly, you met the error "Report server WMI Provider Error: Invalid Namespace" while connecting to a report server via URL http://<server>/reportserver_sqlexpress or http://<server>/reportserver$sqlexpress. By design, the SQL Server Reporting Services(SSRS) will use the Reporting Services WMI provider to restrieve the report server configuration. If the namespace is invalid or we can't access the WMI provider, we will encounter the issue. To solve the issue, please: 1. Make sure the SQL Server Reporting Services service is running. We can check this through Reporting Services Configuration Manager. 2. Make sure we are able to configure the Reporting Services through the Reporting Services Configuration Manager.
