MSSQL 2008 reporting service on Windows Server 2008 not working

Hi All

I have an issue, Windows 2008 standard edition running II7, MSSQL 2008 and MSSQL 2008 reporting service.

Problem:
The report manager http://localhost:8080/Reports prompts for login, use admin account to log in but only see the header and no options to set permissions for clients and reports.

I have tried the UAC trick off, reboot, check site that same so I turned it on again, no luck still does not display anything.

I have tried adding the sties to the trusted sites section with no luck.

This has frustrated me for a few days now and all suggestions I have found have not produced further results.

I need to get into the report manager to configure permissions for clients to us the reporting tool.

Thanks in advance.

Can you check your reporting services setting in reporting services configuration manager?

Have you tried to run Internet Explorer as an administrator?

Try adding that site to Local Intranet sites.
Go to reporting services configuration manager -> configuration manager url -> advanced -> add
Set all default with port 80
Then go to IE and try http://localhost/Reports
