I am running TFS 2010 and have downloaded the new Scrum for Team System v3.0.3784.03 Project Template. When I go to create a project using that template it ends with an error about the report server.
The strange thing is it let me create a Project with the template one time, but has not since then.
I am doing testing with this template, but have only been able to create a project using it once.
Here is the error I am getting.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Error
The Project Creation Wizard encountered an error while creating reports to the SQL Server Reporting Services on http://**.**.**.**/ReportServer/ReportService2005.asmx.  

Explanation
The Project Creation Wizard encountered a problem while creating reports on the SQL Server Reporting Services on http://**.**.**.**/ReportServer/ReportService2005.asmx. The reason for the failure cannot be determined at this time. Because the operation failed, the wizard was not able to finish creating the SQL Server Reporting Services site.  

User Action
Contact the administrator for the SQL Server Reporting Services on http://**.**.**.**/ReportServer/ReportService2005.asmx to confirm that the SQL Server Reporting Services server is running and you have sufficient privileges to create a project. Your user account on SQL Server Reporting Services must have Content Manager permission to create a new project. Also, you might find additional helpful information in the project creation log. The log shows each action taken by the wizard at the time of the failure and may include additional details about the error.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am the administrator of this TFS server so I have no idea why this error is happeneing.
Keep in mind it let me do this once, but has not since then.

Any ideas?

Have you checked this out
"Also, you might find additional helpful information in the project creation log. The log shows each action taken by the wizard at the time of the failure and may include additional details about the error.

First time ok -> speciale attention to 'create' actions off something that already exists.

I figured out a solution for this last week but wanted to make sure it did not occur again before I posted it as a solution.
It seemed I had to go to the Report Server address (which for me was http://servername/Reports) and make my Active Directory account the credentials that were being used in the Properties section for Tfs2010OlapReportDS, Tfs2010ReportDS, TfsOlapReportDS, TfsReportDS, as well as making me the Content Manager under the TfsReports setting.
The strange thing is we never had this problem with using any of the other TFS Project templates. Just with this Scrum for Team System v3.0.3784.03 Project Template. We were using the credentials of the Server administrator account "for our server" which did already have the password information entered for the Report settings. I hope this does not cause a problem in the future for creating other Projects by the other users. It should not becaus eit is storing my password information for them and using that when they create the Projects. Another downside to this is when my AD password expires I will probably have to go in and change all of these again. TFS likes to make things more confusing than they need to be.
