SQL Reporting Services:  The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship with remote server.

Hi there.

I have installed SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services onto a Windows 2003 Server, and I am trying to add to its Report Manager a Shared Data Source.  I get the appropriate screen to fill out the Shared Data Source's Name, Connection String, Credentials, etc.

When I click OK, I get redirected to another screen which simply says this:

(X) SQL Server Reporting Services
      Error
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship with remote server.
Home


This happens whenever I try to add a New Data Source or Upload File.  This happens locally on the Server itself, as well as HTTPing to it through another computer's Internet Explorer.

I do have SSL installed, and there are several layers of security set up.  When I navigate to...

http://((server))/Reports/Pages/Folder.aspx

...I get prompted for a Doman\Username and Password.  Then, once the Folder.aspx page has loaded, and I navigate to "New Data Source", I get a popup window which says this:

Revocation information for the security certificate for this site is not available.  Do you want to proceed?
[Yes]  [No]  [View Certificate]


Of course, I click on "View Certificate".  The details of the Certificate appear, and the certificate is valid well into 2005 (the current year is 2004, in case you are reading this later from an archive).  Even if I click on Install Certificate and let it run its course, the certificate valid dates do not change.  When I hit OK and then "Yes" (toward the popup), I am able to fill out the info-page or select a file to upload.  All is good here until I submit the record.  Then it returns the error message at the top of this post.


Any ideas?  I'm not very familiar with SSL, but I know many of the other technologies involved here (Reporting Services/IIS/SQL Server) pretty well.

Thanks.
Jason

Quick update/correction:  When I Upload File, I am able to upload simple files (.txt, .bmp, .exe (!), etc).

However, when I try to upload an .rdl file, I get the above-listed error.

I figured it out!  

(I'm excited because there are others around the internet who've asked this same question, and the answers just aren't there)

When I installed the Enterprise Edition of Reporting Services onto my webserver, I had specified to use SSL to manage secure connections.  Hence, the SSL-related error.

There are ways to allow the IIS to manage the virtual directory application to handle security.  When I uninstalled Reporting Services and then reinstalled it without the SSL, I was able to add Shared Data Sources and Reports at will.

Moderator, please refund this question.  It would be nice to keep it, however I have no one to assign the points toward (unless, of course, I can credit myself and give me an A!).
