Recieving "The version of the report server database is either in a format that is not valid, or it cannot be read." Error message After Install. What am I doing wrong?

I have setup and installed SSRS 2000 before successfully. This time, I am having nothing but problems. After completing the install I attempt to validate the installation by browsing to the reports page of the Report Server http://[server name]/Reports. When I do that I get this message: "The version of the report server database is either in a format that is not valid, or it cannot be read. The found version is 'Unknown'. The expected version is 'C.0.6.54'. To continue, update the version of the report server database and verify access rights. (rsInvalidReportServerDatabase)". I have diligently searched the web and cannot find anything that corrects the problem. Does anyone have any ideas or maybe experienced this problem themselves?

The problem turned out to be that we were using virtual machine(VMWare) for the Report Server. The database server was a workstation. Once I switched over to a actual real-life server for the Report Server everything worked just fine.

BTW, Microsoft does not support a scenario that includes any combination of SQL Server 2000 and virtual servers.
