We're going to expose the SSRS 2008 Report Manager application to the internet. This machine does not have IIS installed, as SSRS 2008 uses its own build in web server. The Report Manager web application is a virtual folder (/Reports by default, but can be changed to anything). So our public internet link would have to be something like: Reports.MyCompany.net/Repo
rts (where Reports.MyCompany.net is the registered URL).
Is there anyway to make the URL default to the /Reports application so that the link http://Reports.MyCompany.net
would go to /Reports and the Report Manager application? Adding /Reports to the public link is kind of klugey.
What happens now is that if I browse to http://Reports.MyCompany.net
, I get a 404 page not found error. I tried editing the web.config file in the c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10.MSSQLSERVER\
Reporting Services\ReportServer folder to add a <customErrors section and redirect 404 errors, with no luck. I tried redirecting to http://Reports.MyCompany.net/Reports
and to just /Reports both. I don't thing that the mini web server in SSRS will process a <customErrors section in the web.config file.
Is there any other way to accomplish this?
