Hi there, I just installed SQL Server 2005 on a windows 2003 server machine.  Everything installed properly and functions however, the report server web page isn't displaying properly... its displaying like a FTP login or something with just straight links to the reports that you stick out there.  

I'm not sure if this is a windows setup issue or a sql server problem... any help is appreciated.

Sounds like the IIS setup failed. Like the app pool is not setup correctly.

Hmm... how do I fix that?  When I go to the site it asks me for a login and password and acts like its connecting but then it gives me http 500 "this website cannot display the page".  I know I'm running .NET 2.0 ... IIS says its running... I'm generally not a networking person and don't do this installation... so, any help is appreciated.

Have you checked IIS properties and Application Settings for the Reports Website?  This is what mine look like by default, are yours different?

Thanks, its really annoying me... I can see differences in what comes up on the webpage when I remove anonymous login... then it says permission denied... and I can bring up a report that I publised via a direct URL to the report itself... so I think it has to do with IIS ....

Roxanne25,
Is this question still active?  I have seen your subsequent question.  
I looked at this again and what you are seeing when going to delta-hudtest/ReportServer$FSMTST is normal because that is the Reporting Services Web Service site.  I see the same thing if I just go to either my normal Report Server or the Report Server I have on a Named Instance like yours.  Like your other question is getting into, you will want to go to delta-hudtest/Reports$FSMTST for normal Reporting.

Yes, I mentioned in like my third post or so that I goofed and I was using the wrong URL... its the Report Manager I'm having a problem with.

I solved it by reinstalling the entire machine and starting over.  Not sure what did it exactly but I'll give you the points anyhow. :)
