Launching SSRS 2008 Report Manager for the first time

Hi guys -

I'm having issues launching the report manager for the first time for SSRS 2008. I have the configuration manager set up (all defaults pretty much) but when I go to http://<servername>/Reports (or reports) or http://localhost/Reports (or reports) I just get a 404 page.

Can someone help me figure out how to get this to launch the report manager page? Or is there an easier/different way?

Thanks!

Odd - i switched my ports around and it seemed to have worked. So now I go to http://<servername>/Reports and it opens!

There's a problem when I upload my report though. I'm doing it via BIDS. So i go in and set everything up pretty much defaults again - and then when I say 'Deploy' I get a

"The specified report server http://<servername>/reportserver could not be found. Verify the syntax of the URL and that the report server exists."

I know its up and running though because I was able to add some users to it. Ideas as to why it's not letting me add a report? Or is there a different way to upload it all?

Please check the Project Poperties in BIDS before you hit Build then Deploy - go to "Project" menu option, last one on the list is "Properties" and make sure "TargetServerURL" mathces the one you put above like: http://<servername>/ReportsServer - I would use the IP:port number if not default 80  if possible instead of <servername>/

I'll check this here in a few hours. Is there any way I can alter the description of my report like I do on report manager on the /reportmanager page? Or is that something that I have to do manually from there?

You can put in Description in the ReportManager URL under "General" section of "Properties" tab.
