Transferring the rdl's from one server to another is easily done, but there are several steps you need to take.  

This is a nice, step by step process:

Or you could take a look at the scripter:

Maybe a little overkill, but this is pretty much a gui to allow you to move reports from one server to another (drag and drop):

Hi dbaSQL,

Thanks for Prompt Reply.

I have the steps to move the Reports from one server to another. The problem is When I execute the SSRS web service as shown in Image goes fail and give me error HTTP 500.

Is it effect if I have changed the REportServer database name?

Two things, go into Tools\Internet Options\Advanced and clear the Show Friendly HTTP error messages checkbox.
This should give you better output on the error, and help you to identify what is causing the problem.

Second, have you checked your SSRS logs?

Silly mistake was there. Previous developer has changed the ServiceCode in asmx file.
