Moving Reporting Services to another server

Posted on 2008-11-11

I have moved a reporting services 2005 database from one computer to another, as the old computer is being decommissioned, I have followed the instructions from and it's all worked fine, the reports are there, the jobs are created, everythign is fine.

There is one issue, now it's moved I cannot see the subscriptions anymore created under my login in "My Subscriptions", even though the login is created on the new server, and allows me in.  All the subscriptions are working, I just cannot view them to edit them.

The old server and the new server have different names, neither are in a domain, and I have altered the users in the reportingserver database from the old machine name to the new machine name, and still I cannot see the subscriptions created when I log into reporting services.

Any ideas anyone?
