I have set up SRS 2005 on an IIS server with a remote SQL server database. When I browse to http://localhost/reports from the IIS server I just get a page that says Service Unavailable. Obviously, I'm doing something wrong. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Have you run the Reporting Services Configuration utility to see if it is reporting a problem? Also make sure that the service is started - SQL Server Reporting Services (MSSQLSERVER).

I did both of these to no avail. I then uninstalled Reporting Services, reinstalled, ran through Microsoft's "How to: Install a Local Report Server and Remote Report Server Database" and it still didn't work. Then I ran iisreg and it worked. Thanks.
