Missing Reporting Services Site Feature in WSS 3.0

I had this working before my SAN blew up and had to rebuild it from scratch.      Basically  Ive got SQL 2008 x64 hosting Sharepoint 3.0.  and Reporting Services in Sharepoint Integrated mode.

After some pain.  Im am now able to upload reports to WSS and execute them.    However,   I dont seem to have the Reporting Services context menus, such as Manage Data sources, etc.   I think this is related to not having The Reporting services site feature in the list of site features.  

I do have the RS Sharepoint add-in installed.  but the site feature is not present and so i cant enable it and thus get the context menus working.  

Any ideas?   As I say, I thave has this working before but the server is now rebuilt.  

Oh I should mention that WSS is not my forte, Im a SQL DBA so forgive any ignorance of WSS terminoligy

Run the SSRS configuration and repoint to your DB.  The manage data sources is a function of SSRS itself and not WSS.

Re-run the configuration and ensure the DB is upgraded.  (Or assuming it was a backup you should be fine).

Thanks for the reply ged.    

Ive tried that but no joy.     Ive also tried running SSADM to install using the feature.xml of the addin  but that reports an error saying that feature.xml must be called feature.xml.   That error made me laugh :)

ged325.   Im going to close the question as ive resolved it.   Im going to give you the points because you lead me in the right direction.

What I had to do was uninstall the add-in.    Then reset the Report Manager URL in reporting services config.  then reinstall the add-in.     If I reset the report manager URL alone reporting services didnt reflect the change.

Glad to be of help.  Yeah, sharepoint errors are frustrating at best.  They barely tell you what's going on.
