For some reason we can no longer deploy reports to server from Visual Studio BI tools
we get the error...

TITLE: Microsoft Report Designer
------------------------------

A connection could not be made to the report server http://sqldev4/ReportServer.

------------------------------
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable. (Microsoft.ReportingServices.Designer)

We can still preview reports in Visual Studio.

4 days and one reply, this is why I canceled my subscription.
Subscribing to EE is a total waste of time and money.
