I just finished an installation of SQL Server 2008 R2 that included SSRS. All went fine during the installation and now I want to complete the setting up of SSRS. When I go to the SSRS Configuration it lists the server name but cannot find any instance of SSRS. I am used to doing this with SQL Server 2005. It sees the server, the SSRS instance and then I setup up everything else. Is there something different I need to do with SSRS 2008 R2? Wehn I go to Add/Remove programs it shows SSRS as being installed.

I was able to get past this issue by reinstalling. SSRS 2008 R2 is up and running but when I go to the Home Page, all I get is a line telling me the name of the SSRS server. I do not get any error messages just no way to do anything. How do I get the Home Page to appear so I can setup security?

Thanks that worked, Oddly enough, I took one of my SSRS 2005 and opened and converted it to SSSRS 2008. In 2005 each page contained about 20 lines and I was able to click on the next page arrows to move about. Now in 2008, all lines go on page 1 so the page arrows do nothing. The page properties in the report are still the same. Is there anything I can do to get it to recognize how many lines per page?
