Try using a DIFFERENT name for the Report Server.

I had the exact same problem, and the accepted solution was of no help to me.
My solution was to "reinstall" the application server role. I guess it was the IIS reinstall that did the trick.

I went into IIS and deleted the Reportserver virtual directory, and the reportserver application pool
