Performed and inplace upgrade from 2000 to 2005.  Everything works fine except for the report server.

In Microsoft sql server manager, I select connect then reporting services.  From here I can browse the report server, but while trying to connect I get the following error:

Cannot connect to "server\data"
The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel. (System.Web.Services)
The remot certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure.

I ran the "Reporting Services Configuration" tool... if that helps.
