If you have uninstalled a reporting instance is there any point to restoring the ReportServer Database once you have reinstalled the instance?
Why I am asking:
I uninstalled reporting services (as it would not start) aiming to reinstall. After reinstall and restore the dbs I had all sorts of problems.
It would not initialize unless I deleted unencrypted content.. so I did.
Then I got
An internal error occurred on the report server. See the error log for more details. (rsInternalError)
didn't get much help on that one so I started playing around with the database (figured it was a database problem because when I create new reportserver db all is ok except everything is lost). In the Catalog when you delete rows of type 1 (I have been told they are to do with folders) I get a different error.
The item '/' cannot be found. (rsItemNotFound) Get Online Help
Does anyone have a clue what these errors are.. Is the issue that I need to restore the old folder structure of the reporting service instance?
