Hello there,

SQL server 2008 SP1.

I  can’t configure the Report Manager URL because it’s disabled, the Report Manager URL should have been automatically assigned.
How to enable it? Please advise.
Screenshot below.
Thanks and Regards

You have to make sure you have installed SQL Server Reporting Services.

In the Install process of the SQL Server installation you can add this feature.

At the risk of stating the obvious, have you looked at the "Web Service URL" tab? It's telling you that something there needs to be configured first, before you can configure the Report Manager URL.

Since you have the SSRS Config tool installed, I suspect you've installed it correctly, and it won't install unless you already have IIS installed first, so it's just matter of setting up the Web Service URL first. If you can't configure that tab, please post a screenshot of what it says or why you're unable to configure it.

In SQL Server 2008 there is no need to install IIS. You need to set options in WebService URL tab.
You can set Reporting Services similar to mine:
 WebServiceYou would then use following url to connect to report server:

Please make sure SSRS is installed and have the login have had permission to use it.
