SQL Report Server Error. Connection failure, timeout...

I had to perform a database shrink and log file shrink to clean up space on our SQL Server. Now when I try to manage my subscriptions on the reporting services, I get the following:

An error occurred within the report server database. This may be due to a connection failure, timeout or low disk condition within the database. (rsReportServerDatabaseError) Get Online Help For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors

This happens when I want to modify an existing schedule on a report and try to save it. Any Suggestions?

<<I had to perform a database shrink and log file shrink to clean up space on our SQL Server. >>
And what part of your database was getting to big
- data (.mdf or .ndf) then maybe index maintenance could solve something
- log (.ldf)  look at the recovery model and if a better frequency of transaction log backups can keep them small

Shrinking database will internaly fragment database and while it normaly will grow again (from first actions) also fragment the files on disk.

For the error, no direct indication, but could be caused by not having transactionlog backup and now just crossed the timeout line.
